Linux fans will instantly recognize Kill as a clone of the handy xkill utility, because both of them let you instantly kill off a process by clicking on one of its windows. Kill is an effective little application written in AutoHotKey.
The lightweight application disables the X button in the Windows titlebar for the windows you select. Select the window you want to lock and then hit CTRL+1 to lock and unlock the window. You can also add rules for Windows so that NoClose will remember which windows you want locked. While locking your work station when you're away is the best way to keep things just as you left them, NoClose is a great solution to keep an errant mouse click or moment of thoughtlessness from closing a window or application you need open.
We may not have Jetsons-style technology, but you can play George or Jane with this time-saving robot, which streamlines some routine PC tasks. Find and Run Robot (aka FARR) comes stocked with handy tricks, and you can create your own or plug in add-ons as you go.
Find and Run Robot (FARR) is a program for Windows users who are keyboard maniacs. It uses an adaptive "live search" function to rapidly find programs and documents on your computer as you type. FARR is the best windows "keyboard quick launcher" I've ever used.
For this week's Freeware Frenzy, I have rounded up four of the big name launchers to see which reigns supreme.. For what Find and Run Robot lacks in an imaginative name, it makes up for in pure functionality. F&RR uses the "Break" key by default, as well as a system tray icon. I'll pause while you scan for the Break key, its ok; I needed a second to find mine as well. What sets F&RR apart from the pack is the simple yet effective suggestion box tweak. Each of the suggestions are numbered, so you don't need the mouse at all when your desired app is not the first selected. Just punch the number to launch whatever you like. Note that this applies to the numbers on the number pad, not the top row. There are a plethora of options to tweak F&RR, much more then any of the other programs here. As usual, you can add skins, new folders to index and edit hotkeys. You can also save search history to avoid common searches. Via the suggestion box, you can right click on results to create search rules, copy the shortcut path, explore the folder or check properties. This was the first of the group to load web pages without any weirdness. Of the four programs included in this roundup, Find and Run Robot was my clear winner. It simply did it all without any hiccups.
Simplifying access to apps and files is what this is all about, especially on today's big hard disks (and tomorrow's even bigger disks). And it's especially useful on a laptop, where I can use keystrokes rather than a mouse or thumbpad. It's rare that I find a free app that changes the way I interact with my computer, but after using FARR for two or three weeks, I'm almost ready to claim that it's that kind of app. This thing should be standard on every computer.
