Nice tool. Should accept copy&pasted JSON-Data too.
Would be even better, if it could produce JSON classes for C#, VB.NET from the JSON data.

I would suggest to use online json viewer http://codebeautify.org/jsonviewer

A bad piece of news. Even more- the AM-DeadLink history page has been removed and cannot be viewed only in Archive.Org- https://web.archive.org/web/20150316124157/http://aignes.com/deadlink_history.htm

No idea what other changes have been made in version 4.7. The help file also doesn't include a what's new section.

psmstart.exe may be essential to launch 64-bit applications (psmenu.exe doesn't start with either missing), but that doesn't change the fact that psmenu.exe is a 32-bit application.

hamasaki on 2020-10-21 21:18

Download links go to the wrong page.

hamasaki on 2020-10-21 21:31

Also, on extraction, there is no {app} folder. Files are in the root.

The publisher seems to have pulled the new release and is serving the 11.0.53254 release from December for both standard and portable downloads even though the main download page still shows 11.0.55321 as the current version.

JohnTHaller on 2016-02-18 17:49

And now it's updated.

dmiranda on 2020-12-18 00:39

Theoretically, 14.2 should work in XP, but it is hit and miss. The version that still works always is 13.13

Iconize v2.0.0.5

Andrew Lee on 7 Mar 2021
  • 181KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 May 2008
  • Suggested by Replika

Iconize resides in the system tray, allowing you to hide any application also in the system tray as an icon via its right-click menu. In the event that Explorer crashes and the taskbar is closed (and the system tray with it), Iconizer will rebuild all your icons when Explorer restarts. In addition, the program includes application minimize, maximize, restore, or close all at once.

NOTE: Official and many mirror sites are offline, so a local mirror is provided for download. Thanks to nolajovol for providing a copy of the last 2.0.0.5 version.

Looks like you don't need to extract anything? Looks to be natively portable?

@hamasaki - good catch, instructions updated

Mixture on 2019-07-27 12:48

I tried both 'Cliquez' links. Both return a 404 error message in a popup window. Must mean version 2.0.05 is gone.

Trying to download the zip file, a Firefox warning says: "This file may harm your computer. This file is disguised as a helpful download, but it can make unexpected changes to your programs and settings".
This is the first time I see this FF warning...
