Balabolka has for years had a strange bug where the longer it runs in the background the longer the delay it takes when you hit the "read selected text" hotkey.

TextAloud doesn't have this issue and not having to restart Balabolka every hour feels like a massive weight has been lifted from my shoulders.

But my arrow doesn't disappear with the stick.
It is possible to have the stick without original pointer with some effect for every cursor? Like normal, text, link cursor etc.

rogerthedodger on 2012-10-27 02:51

Yes agreed would be more useable if the original arrow was to disappear whilst the stick was on show. I do however like software by this guy, and couldnt live without "always mouse wheel" which is what microsoft should have originally had.

As the last comment is nearly four years old, I think it's needless to mention that SyMenu actually supports Windows 10. In my case the application even reached the "autostart-status", which is really a coronation for an app. Furthermore, since eight months I am contributing to the large Program Suite as SPS-Publisher. During this time I made the experience of a respectful athmosphere under the people behind SyMenu, which I could talk to so far. Except the developer of course, keep away from this crazy guy...btw hello Gian my friend and greetings to Italy ;-) So, all-in-all in my personal opinion this application is really worth a try and I'm sure it even get's better from day to day!

(and recycle bin and email aswell) ha! and just drop it on this button.. nothing will freez! magic :) Thanks anyway folks.
Q-dir is great.

The Q-Dir 64 installer 6.47 is not installing, last time there was also a problem with the 64 installer. They should be checking first before releasing the installer.

starshakur on 2018-05-05 15:17

Can't recommend Q-Dir to anyone, freezes while copying, Q-Dir windows turns black, crashes. Windows 10 64-Bit, tried Q-Dir 32-Bit & 64-Bit, tried the PortableApps version, all of them buggy as hell. That*s probably the reason why the developer frequently updates it. 2 years back Mithril wrote about something that's still happening.

I really didn't like not being able to hit "enter" and have the message send. You can configure this behavior under options - Message sessions - General tab - Sending messages - checkbox "Send message on 'Enter'"

If that seems like a lot to go through to configure something fairly basic, that's kind of how this client works: a little confusing with a trade-off of intense customization.

It should be mentioned, that eToolz requires NET3.5 - I think since version 3. It does NOT run on Windows 8 and higher with the integrated NET 4+, if the optional NET3.5-package is not installed!

I needed to connect to an onion site and downloaded the latest version (5.0.2) but Australis makes Tor Browser absolutely terrible and unusable- I do not want to install heaps of add-ons just to restore features the Mozilla idiots removed. I had an earlier version of Tor Browser (3.6.0- before the advent of the abominable Australis) but the perpetual blinking of the Tor button urging for update is unbearable and cannot be disabled. It can be removed from the tool-bar but this way one cannot acquire new identities.

Sinchu: Emphasizing that I've used Dsyncronize for years and it's definitely my go-to sync program, I acknowledge any program that deletes files should probably send them by default to the recycle bin. I've added something to the entry.

Whitelist on 2019-06-17 16:01

Webfork: I had the same problem as sinchu. The program deleted around 500gbs of data overnight. Is there any way I could get this data back? I'm not super knowledgeable in IT but I have a general understanding of how things work. Is there a specific software I could use to get the data back since I don't have any previous versions of the data to restore. Thank you.

I still use & really like this program now using Windoze 10. I'm anal about my Desktop icons arrangement, and this program makes it so easy to line them up just as I want. Thanks to the maker for a program that I have used for a very long time across many different operating systems. Has always been flawless for me :)

Midas on 2017-04-04 12:44

It would be even better if DesktopOK didn't force an icon rearrangement with every resolution change -- in my laptop, a lot of those are temporary, resulting from user logon or the machine coming out of sleep state before, rerouting graphics to my higher resolution external screen. After some time it's galling to have to restore icon arrangement after every such hiccup. I've gone through all settings several times but up to now have been unable to disable this behavior.

@Emka - The first item under OPTIONS look like you can set the utility to delete the jpgs when you exit the program. I have never been very sure the program actually does what it says, so I simply use the second item in OPTIONS to check and delete as necessary. Periodically I use the jpg instead the pdf so I actually find this useful. Bottom line is that I wish the author would clean all this up a bit more, but I find the utility so useful (use it every day almost) that I am prepared to work around the idiosyncrasies.

With 4.76, I did not find any entries in the registry. Nor did it remember the last backup folder.

Dave Bee on 2019-06-15 10:40

I was just wondering what is wrong with backing up the drivers using Windows itself? That's what I've been doing for a long time. If I ever need to reinstall a driver, I just point Windows to the folder where all the drivers are backed up, and Windows will find and install the specific driver(s). Why would you even need this program at all? Make a new folder on your C drive (I find that easiest), then just run an administrator command prompt, and run the following command: dism /online /export-driver /destination:"C:\New Folder" Windows will back up your drivers, and you can then copy/cut/rename the new folder to whatever/wherever you want. Works for me.

Solved: the download on the portable freeware site does not include a file "todolist.exe.manifest" that is required to run on XP. If you have an existing earlier version of todolist, it will have a file "todolist.exe.xp.manifest". Dan the developer advises to rename that to "todolist.exe.manifest". Seems to work.

IanFromBarrie on 2017-01-27 22:54

The download contains the "todolist.exe.xp.manifest" file, and renaming that to "todolist.exe.manifest" works

It doesn't have functionality far in advance of other editors, but the interface is great. There are big, clear icons, themes, easy tabbed interface, and a really smooth options menu. If you think text editors are supposed to be functional rather than friendly, this might not be your cup of tea. Otherwise...

TeraCopy v3.5 Updated

webfork on 15 Nov 2020
  • 13MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 13 Nov 2020
  • Suggested by AntBond

TeraCopy lets you copy or move files at the maximum possible speed. It uses dynamically adjusted buffers to reduce seek times, as well as asynchronous copy to speed up file transfers between two physical hard drives. When an error is encountered during copying/moving, TeraCopy will automatically retry and skip the files that cannot be transferred instead of aborting the entire operation. It also shows failed file transfers and lets you recopy only problem files.

Once the destination directory is selected, files can be dragged-and-dropped onto the window, even while a transfer is in progress. Once files are transferred, the Verify option uses a hash check to see if files are identical.

Note that a Pro version of the program is available with additional features.

Category:
Runs on:Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder: Options.ini and main.db
Stealth: ? No. Creates some files in the user folder.

Even selecting the portable version, it's not portable. You have to rename the 'Portable.txt' file to 'Portable'. It also creates uninstall files.

The CURRENT (2020-11-12) "offline" aka portable version instrustions:

Lots of forum searching to find this "stand-alone/offline portable install method note".

The "complete" stand-alone offline version is found here:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/simutrans/files/Simutrans%20complete/102-2-2/

Optional to reduce size:

Downloading the smallest "graphics pak" which is: "Pak32 Comic" found here:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/simutrans/files/pak32.comic/pak32.comic%20for%20102-0/

THEN renamE the folder from "pak32" to "pak" and delete/replace the original.

Remove all languages/fonts but the main one you speak/read (example: English for me with font "Prop-Latin1.bdf")

This will result in SMALLEST SIZE, current graphics game: unzipped, file "fixed" and UPX'ed (lzma) compressed size: 4.19mb

aazard on 2020-11-12 00:49

@ 4.19mb in on drive size; this is the most current (still being updated) simcity/open TTD like game that is will run on ANY PC current enough to have a USB port.

I like this program. I recently used it to notice some suspicious looking port activities. I was able to close the ports down and then turn them to stealth using my firewall program. Then I used this program again and everything has looked normal ever since then. So I think this program may have helped me to stop some hackers or malware. All of my own internet activities and programs work normally so I really do think this program helped me stop something bad from happening.

  • 36MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 11 Nov 2020
  • Suggested by guinness

UltraSearch Free is a fast and feature-rich search tool, building a searchable listing of drive content in seconds. File name searches narrow as they are typed and support wildcards such as "*.txt". Additional information like file size and last change date are present, along with access to Explorer's own context menu.

The program also includes a slower, non-indexing file content search that will look inside files, including a variety of Office (DOCX, PDF, PST, ODT) and compressed files (ZIP, 7Z, RAR). It is recommended that you provide a small set of files to check e.g. ext:DOCX content:portable to look for the word "portable" in MS Word files.

Other search options include AND / OR operations, regular expressions, a custom exclude filter for path, files, parent folders, etc., and results can be exported to text and CSV.

I was testing some alternatives to HDDB and this was listed as an alternative.

I briefly tested this and it's a memory eater. Uses around 500MB RAM and used a lot of disk I/O on first boot.

Stick to HDDB or Everything.

I download v3.0 x32 using direct link provided here (https://downloads.jam-software.de/ultrasearch_free/UltraSearch-x86-Free-Portable.zip) and it writes to file: C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\UltraSearch Free\MainForm_RibbonOptions.xml.
If you move this file "MainForm_RibbonOptions.xml" to app's folder it will be used from this location and so UltraSearch free will become full portable!

update: I just found that link https://downloads.jam-software.de/ultrasearch_free/UltraSearch-x86-Free-Portable.zip (for the x32 version) is NOT valid any more!!!

I've had a bit better luck with QuickTextPaste on Win10x64 by using commands other than those that use the "Win" key in combinations. It only sometimes triggers properly. Much better to use CTRL+ALT, CTRL+SHIFT, etc.

I can't get this software to work at all. Have reverted to PhonerLite, which has a clumsy interface but works OK. I like the neat gui for MicroSIP, but can't make outgoing calls at all, getting a 'connection timeout' message; and after answering an incoming call, can neither hear or be heard by caller.
Bizarre; use the same settings as for PhonerLite, and when MicroSIP is running, it registers with my VOIP provider (Sipgate) OK, but ... zilch!

The worst software I have tried,It doesn't work on windows 10 (Tried both portable and setup), The interface sucks. You can not even find a simple task like start time and end time.I tried following subtitles editors too;

1.SubtitleWorkshop : Doesn't support Mp4 (most common format)
2.Subtitle Adjuster : Not bad but You can't adjust the subtitle to sound exactly.
3.Time adjuster : Does't work on windows 10
4.AegiSub : There are so many options, but I couldn't find where to make the subtitle compatible with audio
5.Easy Subtitles Synchronizer : easy to use everything is clearly designed.

As a Software developer I advice the SubtitleWorkshop coder something ; Please try every feature separately on windows 10 x86 and x64 , Too many features take the software away from its main purpose and make it unusable

To hide folding column, call "Plugins / Options Editor" and find there in DIALOG option "gutter_fold", and change it.
