“Over the years [Chrome] has gained a reputation for being something of a resource hog, gobbling up your PC’s memory like it’s going out of style.” Starting with version 108, the Chrome desktop browser has a feature called Memory Saver that deactivates tabs that aren’t currently being used. When a user accesses a deactivated tab, it automatically reloads. A user can turn Memory Saver on or off. A user can also exclude specific sites from Memory Saver, keeping tabs for those sites active. See:

@Fox: You might want to run files you test through VirusTotal before posting. I rechecked both 32 and 64 bit and both are safe.

PapaiMark on 2023-11-06 02:46

It is my default sound manager. Not perfect. It has the worst 'compressor' you can imagine but the 'limiter' is perfect. Very easy to use. Uses only VST2 plugins. For a good and free compressor, use eaReckon FREE87 FR-COMP. Very simple. Important to say also that the copy/paste sound areas count as miliseconds. So, after many operations, the time of the sound will be higher or lower.

This is not portable by default; it needs an extra step. From the readme:

"By default, the TheAeroClock.ini will be created in the folder %APPDATA%/TheAeroClock

For portable use, please create or copy in TheAeroClock working directory the TheAeroClock.ini."

stisev on 2021-02-16 03:07

For any poor souls out there who can't figure this app out.

1. Create TheAeroClock.ini in the app dir or it will write to /AppData
2. There seems to be a longstanding bug that does not show the app in the tray
3. If you want to see the program options, launch the app twice (yes you can't make this stuff up - there's no right click options, lol)

Note: starting with actual version 6.18 TagScanner requires the VC-/Universal Runtimes. I stumbled upon because this runtimes cannot be installed on my system. Version 6.17 however works fine.
For systems without this runtimes the workaround could be to copy the runtimes from LibreOffice or Firefox and place them in the root folder of TagScanner (x86 or x64 accordingly).

File types available for search includes Microsoft Office and PDF files. The program also be detect duplicate files via the "Search Mode" drop-down box.

I have tried and used several search apps before and was not very impressed but as soon as I saw that this product was from NirSoft I knew I had to try it. NirSoft makes so many great apps that I use a lot, its difficult to say something new about them due to the fact that just about everything they make works great and is pretty awesome overall. One thing is 4sure the native Micro$oft search engine is close to worthless, so just about anything will be an improvement.

The latest version is such a welcome addition as it allows you to set the font and size used in the search results.

My eyes are not what they once was, so increasing the font size makes things much more legible for me especially when sitting far back in my chair!

It's not mentioned but it requires admin rights to install a driver. Does it remove the driver on system reboot? I don't know, I couldn't find out very much information besides "there's no installation required". The developer proclaims "It's so simple to use, you don't need documentation." LOL. So much for that.

Last but not least GPU-Z and CPU-Z just share similar names, they are developed independently afaik.

Cornflower on 2023-12-10 08:43

Also note that virtually every new release updates some plugins, and version 4.65 is no exception. Most users may want to go to https://www.irfanview.com/plugins.htm and download the 32- or 64-bit package, and dump them into the Irfanview Plugins subdirectory.

Cornflower on 2024-04-05 13:40

I notice in 4.67 that the OCR plugin is updated. It suggests using the Tesseract OCR, which I suspect is not portable. When I test it I will be looking to see if it can be made portable, and if it works with 32-bit Irfanview (there are a number of limitations with the 64-bit Irfanview so I am staying there).

Version 5.4 is not shutting down fully when the application is closed. The process continues running in the background and must be killed manually.

Killing it manually causes a warning from the PortableApps launcher the next time you launch it stating that the app was not closed properly.

I rolled back to 5.3, which does not have this problem.

I don’t see a way to get older versions from their website, so thankfully I kept a backup.

FileOptimizer v16.60 Updated

Special on 2 Apr 2024
  • 194MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 2 Apr 2024
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A list of the 400+ supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF) and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line. Many images here on TPFC including our logo have been compressed using FileOptimizer.

Category:
Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Wine

How to extract: Download the self-extracting 7z.exe package and launch. When prompted, select a folder of your choice. Launch FileOptimizer32.exe or FileOptimizer64.exe (for 64-bit OS).

At startup, the program will optionally show ads to support program development. These can be disabled at any time.

Optionally, to save space:
  • 32-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer64.exe and the \Plugins64 folder
  • 64-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer32.exe and the \Plugins32 folder
  • Delete unnecessary language files

I just tried to reduce the size of a video and it has left me exactly the same and with either option: fast and the best.
Any explanation?.
Best regards.

webfork on 2019-10-06 22:40

@kilouiski: FileOptimizer exists because so few programs take the time and energy to fully compress your files with available tools. It sounds like the program used to generate your video was an exception.

I love this program. Glad someone picked it and started updating it again, if only so it remains running on future hardware and OSes.

FileHandler on 2024-01-28 15:52

Been using it for over a decade. Elaborate export feature that turns tree branches into headings, customizable key shortcuts, BG-colors, fonts, icons...
And with recent improvements, it got better than ever. Lots of hidden features, if you take the time to dig deeper.

Alternative margins, for instance, to name just one example. You set them up in keynote.ini, then toggle them on via View > Alternative Margins. Allows to set up a distraction-free writing area with plenty of white space left and right, when coupled with hidden sidebars.

InsideClipboard displays the binary content of all formats that are currently stored in the clipboard, allowing you to save the content of specific format into a binary file.

Updating the program seems to ignore and overwrite _every_ previous setting with defaults. Overwriting prp.dat and prp.ini with older ones with correct settings does nothing after starting the program again. Going from 190601 to 210522 (or 1.0.2.0 to 1.0.2.5). Should upgrade progressively with intermediate versions?
So weird, anyone has this problem?

Some interesting news:
- Updated to 2.37 2022, May, 1st
- Repackaged since 2.36 (see https://github.com/NickeManarin/ScreenToGif/releases)
"New installer and portable versions with the full package (no .NET 6 download required) are available alongside with the lighter versions, which still require the installation of .NET 6 desktop runtime."

So, now we can have either:
- a self contained "ScreenToGif.2.37.Portable.x64.zip" at 67.7 MB
- or a minimal "ScreenToGif.2.37.Light.Portable.x64.zip" at 6.96 MB... but we need .NET 6 installed on the PC :)

I will try it now, for sure :)

@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 very capable Word processor, spreadsheet (Calc), presentations (Impress), expression builder (Math, physics, chemistry, etc.), Drawing (vector) editor and dataBase, one only misses specialized apps like diagram (like Dia) and raster image editors (The GIMP, MyPaint, LazPaint) to build an office to rival (and maybe even best) M$ Office.

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...

(Tixati is not "72MB (uncompressed)"- it is either 38 MB (x32) or 36 MB (x64).)

Quite so, strictly speaking...

BUT...

Currently, the "Uncompressed size" field is formally defined in the entry form as:
   "Total size of application files when fully unarchived/uncompressed".

We don't really want to open a whole 'nother can of worms about what exactly ought to be the appropriate scope of the "uncompressed size" field definition, with implication for every current entry in the Data Base, do we ?

Nice little player. The website has a page with plugins, but it's slightly misleading. The "Qmmp Plugin Pack" download directs to the player itself, and the others require building from source/installed dependencies.

@Realist, I believe the more we have the better they will all get or they go away, after all competition makes the world go round. I would agree if all are the exact same then it is a waste, but coders usually try and add something more useful that the last version doesn't have. Just my thoughts. :)

Yucca on 2019-06-12 11:35

As of June 12, OBS version 23.2.0 is a release candidate and not the current stable version. The current stable version is 23.1.0. If you post a release candidate, that should be stated in the description so users can know what they are downloading.

rb161 on 2020-12-16 23:25

My recently purchased webcam only works with one version of OBS so I'm unable to upgrade to use new features. I have always had problems playing any video except uncompressed and despite being able to play and edit just about any anything in other software on my PC. Other people have complained about the same issue (videos showing as a black screen) for years but the problem is never addressed by the developers. If you can work around issues such as these or are lucky enough not to be plagued by them, then OBS is nice, light software and recording and streaming work well.

Version 3.6.7 is now available.

I take the opportunity to comment further that I have now tried the program on several occasions, always with good results without reading instructions. Though its interface does look a little intimidating at first, it's not all that difficult.
In particular,
Tools > Fix common errors… : converted a non-working document to a perfect srt.
Synchronization > Adjust all times (show earlier/later)… : was most useful.

freakazoid on 2023-06-10 00:59

PSA: For older users, use the 32-bit version of v2.0 for now.

v1.6 was 32-bit only and v2.0 has a 64-bit version. I upgraded to the 64-bit version of v2.0 and found that most of my custom components stopped working because the component does not have a 64-bit version yet.

Easiest way to get everything working again is to use the 32-bit version of v2.0 until all your favorite components have a 64-bit version.

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.

NOTE: Recent press about CCleaner indicates it may represent a privacy concern.

CCleaner is a feature-rich system optimization and privacy tool. The program cleans unused, temporary and log files from your system, as well as traces of online activities such as Internet history and flash cookies. The program contains startup controls for Windows, major internet browsers and context menu entries. Includes a separate registry cleaner, duplicate search, system restore tool and can wipe both deleted files and drive free space for security.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder). Monitoring functions are only available in the pro version.

I have used this PIM for many years however since Yahoo inflicted their new security measures I have been unable to download messages from my Yahoo account, I have followed all the instructions provided by Yahoo to add Essential PIM to the list of message services but to no avail.

Even Anton at Astonsoft could not help as his recommendations were exactly the same as those from Yahoo.

EssentialPIM free since version 9 can not add e-mail account Google (Gmail) or Microsoft (Outlook) - fails 2-step verification (OAuth).

ImageCacheViewer scans the cache of your Web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Pale Moon, SeaMonkey, Google Chrome, Chromium, Opera, Vivaldi and Yandex) and lists the images displayed in the recently visited Web sites. For every cached image file, program displays the URL of the image, browser used, image type, image and browsing date/time and file size. Selecting an image from this list shows the image in the lowe rpane and you can copy the image to the clipboard (Ctrl+M) for pasting elsewhere.

The program is useful for getting around some image protection schemes, web development testing and tracking down a specific image when you're not sure of its associated website.

Note: The author recommends closing all windows of your Web browser before using to ensure that all files are saved to the disk. Additionally, the program won't work if the browser is configured to clear its cache on closing (for privacy or space reasons).
