  • Suggested by agam

AutoText offers in a small tooltip window saved words, texts, phrases, snippets etc. during typing in any other program and will insert the selected item directly to the cursor position. In case of unsuccessful search, Space, Return, PgUp, PgDn etc. closes the small window, so that fast and liquid typing is not disturbed. Three different search methods can be set.

In addition AutoText monitors the clipboard and saves the last X text entries of the clipboard, which can then be retrieved as well.

Defraggler v2.22.995 Updated

billon on 22 May 2018
  • 13MB (uncompressed)
  • 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.

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
