Extremely fast and lightweight. Use this more than any other weather app. Makes it easy to compare weather reports from multiple areas.

AVG quarantined this when I installed - triggered by AVG's "behaviour shield".

Defraggler v2.22.995

  • Released on 22 May 2018
  • Suggested by atao.m

Defraggler improves drive performance by organizing data at a file system level. Since files over time spread out over a drive, occasional "defragmentation" can help reduce drive seek time. Uniquely, Defraggler can function at a file or folder-level to help clean up specific areas, or the whole disk. The program will also list fragmented files and their locations.

The package includes both 32-bit and a 64-bit versions, as well as a command line program. This tool is not recommended for SSD drives or other flash-based media.

Category:
Runs on: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: Administrative rights
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and extract Defraggler.exe or Defraggler64.exe (for 64-bit OS), and optionally Lang directory to a folder of your choice
  2. Create a blank text file in the same folder, paste the following:

    #PORTABLE#

    and save it as portable.dat
  3. Launch Defraggler.exe or Defraggler64.exe

For quick-and-dirty, single file specific defrag job, I tend to favor Sysinternals' Mark Russinovich CLI implementation (as in Clean-and-Lean-Interface...;-)

Blindlingy fast, small footprint (208k) Contig.exe V1.7

"Games" and "Graphics" are close alphabetically ;-)

Easily my favorite color picking app, mainly for the compact size, any key locking, and one-click copying of values.

Adding HSL values would make it even better.

Website down and download link unavailable.
The program can be downloaded from Softpedia:

JPEGView v1.0.37

billon on 24 Feb 2018
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 24 Feb 2018
  • Suggested by infimum

JPEGView is a minimalistic viewer/editor designed to view images from digital cameras full screen and with highest quality possible. Basic image editing functionality is provided, allowing correction for typical problems as color cast, high/low contrast, orientation and under- or overexposure very quickly and interactively during review of the images. The program can view and save JPEG, BMP, PNG, GIF, TIFF, or WEBP. Includes batch rename and copy features.

While JPEGView is not intended as a replacement for a full-blown image editor, the included tool set of commonly-used modifications means such editors should be needed less often.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

Alternatively, JPEGView Portable is also available from PortableApps.

You can also use something like eXpresso[1], which has the benefit of being global and singular.

Something I've encountered in JPEGView: If you're working with a transparent PNG file, avoid editing and saving it with JPEGView, as the app cannot retain the transparent content and will replace it with a black background. JPEGView is otherwise very good for basic image editing.

GerryB on 2020-09-06 13:42

Re my previous comment: This was with the 32-bit version. I have no way of knowing how the 64-bit version deals with transparencies, as I can't run it on my machine. At any rate, viewing them is OK; just don't save them from JPEGView.
