I was given a laptop:

AnVir TaskManager Pro
Paste Text Like
----------
Dell Touchpad
Safely Remove...
FastStone Capture 8
Network 6

Speakers

Computer status: Protected
Action Center (no current issues detected)

Mouse Hunter Agent (www.amlpages.com) ON
Remaining 1:24 hour (37%) AC power: Offline
Clipboard Master

Regarding Dell Touchpad: inherited, it came with the machine. I have no idea what it does, but I don't dare to kill it.
I have no understanding of why there are two programs to tell me, how long the accumulator's power supply will last.

Curious about FolderCache and PastePath...

Thank you for asking.  FolderCache got a write-up awhile back here

PastePath was inspired by a post on DC.  I forget the location of the post.  But it mentioned another software that made it easy to paste in an Explorer folder path.  That is all PastePath does.  It remembers the last folder that was active and pastes it when you hit the hotkey.  I detects a command prompt and pastes it in so that the prompt will accept it(I believe it right clicks the mouse.)  Very simple but it is convenient for avoiding drilling down in SaveAs and Open dialogs. It will paste into anything that accepts clipboard text via Control v.

It is not perfect.  It won't get the path of special folders like Computer(neither will FolderCache.)  One of these days I should add that in but I fear making the calls to get the special folder CLSIDs or names may be slow.  If you use a file manager other than File Explorer then these two utilities may not be all that useful.  But if you mainly  do file copy/move with Explorer they may make a few things a bit easier.

Edit: I updated my thread on DC for the program:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run -> join.me.launcher

Of course, whenever you use it, it adds it back :(

You can also run it without installing by extracting the installer using UniExtract and copying the contents of the {app} folder wherever you like.

I did give it a go... But it apparently uses 15 times the memory used by FScapture, with one fifteenth of the feature set. Mouser's Screenshot Captor beats it handily.

With Greenshot using 13.7MB out of my 12GB and at a cost of $19.95 less than FSCapture, I think I can live with it.

While we've kind of digressed into application memory usage, can I ask what those using the Dropbox client show it's memory usage as?

I installed it today just to sync a few MP3s onto my Lumia 530, (cheap media player), and Task Manager shows it using 140+MB at idle which, quite frankly, is ridiculous considering the iDrive client uses ~26MB and is continuously indexing/uploading atm.

Interesting, I wonder if it's just a Win8 thing?
Using the 32bit version on Win8.1 x64 here.
