DesktopOK v8.77 Updated

Andrew Lee on 14 Apr 2021
  • 674KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 13 Apr 2021
  • Suggested by JohnW

DesktopOK contains a host of beneficial Windows interface tweaks. The program can save the current icon view by resolution and make it easy to swap between views, showing all saved view formats in a list. Other tools include basic screenshots, the ability to force-close programs, color tool, volume and more:

  • Interface tools include reducing clutter with a minimize-to-tray by right clicking on a window close button, mouse hiding and ability to hide desktop icons after a period of inactivity (click on the desktop to make them re-appear). You can even modify default icon spacing.

  • Window management tools include scrolling any window that your mouse hovers over (not just what's in focus) and alt+drag (for moving windows without having to hold your cursor over the top bar).

Category:
Runs on:WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. In this folder, create an empty text file and name it DesktopOK.ini. Launch DesktopOK.exe or DesktopOK_x64.exe.

Possible issues:
  • The program is in German: If not automatically set to the English, click the by clicking the flag in the lower left corner of the window for any of 24 world languages.
  • It saves to AppData: If you don't create an empty text file, it writes to %APPDATA%/DesktopOK/DesktopOK.ini. If you accidentally skipped this step, you can simply move this file over to the application folder.

CCTime v1.01

mmx64 on 11 Dec 2019
  • 588B (uncompressed)
  • Released on
  • Suggested by mmx64

CCTime is a utility to help track how much time you spend on different tasks during your work day. Tracking time is tedious, so focus lies on simplicity and automation. CCTime stays out of your way while still being readily accessible, so you can focus on actual work. CC is short for Click Click, because two clicks is all it takes to register time on a task!

CCTime sits in your system tray and automatically hides when not in use. You can see how much time you've spent in total each day, and how much of that time has not yet been assigned to tasks. For each week you can get a report, summarizing your work that week.

CC Time is free, open source software. Source code is available at GitHub.

QiPress Lite v1.076.6

billon on 10 Jan 2021
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 8 Jan 2021
  • Suggested by billon

QiPress is a monitor for the system keyboard and mouse, describing activity in a small, semi-transparent black box in the corner of your screen. Ideal for presentations, screencasts and program how-tos, the program can also behave as a diagnosis tool for keyboard problems, describe unlabeled keys, or provide feedback show when an application is ignoring input.

Settings are available to ignore key-sets to exclude for example mouse or keypad activity, as well as window color, transparency, fade-out and more.

A pro version of the program is available for commercial use, and has the same feature-set.

The program is stealth again.

@utilfreak

Thank you.

Also, QiPress triggers a User Account Control (UAC) prompt. What does it need it for?

utilfreak on 2015-06-03 16:09

@I am Baas
Thank you for your note, I wasn't aware of it as I have set UAC to the lowest level. QiPress 1.064 Build 6 will now trigger UAC only if it is running within:
a) C:\Program Files*\* OR
b) Root of a drive
This is generally required by programs that need to dynamically update their resources within those paths.
