Hexplorer is an editor for viewing/editing files in hexadecimal format. Its unique feature is the ability to interpret and visualize binary data in various ways eg. view as BMP header or FAT32 boot sector. It comes with a built-in pixel viewer to show binaries as bitmaps. It also doubles up as a disk sector editor since it is able to access logical disks under WinNT/2K/XP.

NOTE: If the program starts up with a very small font, select View from the menu and choose Options - Font - Fixed Roman Large.

Wow, this is not only the most visually appealing, but also the most useful hex editor I've ever tried!

I agree with BillyBob in that the default font (Fixed Roman) is way too small. It would have been better if the author set the default to "OEM Fixed Font" or something.

I also like Autumn, and look forward to more color schemes.

Yes, it has some unusual features, but it is not truely portable. After installing and playing with it for a while, I discovered that it stored the primary (font selection, colors, etc) in two files (hexplorer.dat and mclip.dat) in "%windir%\Application Data". I did not use all the features and tools so other files may be created.

The three main issues I found with WinDirStat are:

1. It can't compare the current disk usage with an older snapshot in order to see what new files crept up, or which increased in size

2. It can't delete multiple files at once

3. Its development seems to have ceased in September 2007, according to

Very handy for visually finding and backing up the file caches on a friend's computer before reloading the os. You can quickly see which user accounts have files and which are unused.

I've been using this for years, sure it's missing some features and rough around the edges but it's fully functional and runs quite fast. A shame the developer decided to cease operations

Okay, okay. That problem I just described... that has nothing to do with the program's ability to capture. It has EVERYTHING to do with your video cards "acceleration mode". if you disable it under your "Display settings/advanced" simple press of PRNT SCRN will do. But this program is...well, kinda pointless now that I can use PRNT SCRN?
