Why is this software usefull?
Let me show you a scenario, tell you why and maybe give you some hints of usefull software allong the way.
Ever had a program the you whould like to monitor, it didnt take up much space one the desktop, but everytime you used the "Maximize"-button in another program it got hidden? Well, this is a program that can help.
I use a program called Samurize (www.samurize.com
), but it could just a easily be coolmon (www.coolmon.org
). It could even be mIRC (the part where you see if people says hi), or Gaim (http://gaim.sourceforge.net
, a multi-protocol instant messaging including msn).
They use a part of the desktop to show you usefull information. My Samurize-setup shows things like tasks, what my winamp hits towards my ears, time and such. I wanna se it, even if I use Firefox (www.getfirefox.com
, a good and free browser) and hit the maximize button.
This is what DesktopCoral do. It makes a "hidden" window along one of the sides of your desktop and keeps maximized windows away. Here is a screenshot of my setup (look on the right side of the screen)
So, if I start a program that maximize itself i don't loose contact with my information (Now, why would this information be so important? Well.. I like to see how much memory programs use, and samurize shows it to me, what tasks are started? Samurize show that too...
Thank you Mouser, this program is making my days a little easier and more userfriendy
