I guess WindowTabs is well-known enough, but do you know it is free and open source now. But it is a little sluggish on windows 10.
And also here is another alternative multrin you should try.

TidyTabs does the tab window thing also. Free version lets you tab 3 windows, pro license removes that restriction ($9us). I thought I had seen it in this topic but missed it in a quick glance back.

".... Monkey’s Audio is a fast and easy way to compress digital music.  Unlike traditional methods such as mp3, ogg, or wma that permanently discard quality to save space, Monkey’s Audio only makes perfect, bit-for-bit copies of your music.  That means it always sounds perfect – exactly the same as the original.  Even though the sound is perfect, it still saves a lot of space (think of it as a beefed-up Winzip™ your music).  The other great thing is that you can always decompress your Monkey's Audio files back to the exact, original files.  That way, you'll never have to recopy your CD collection to switch formats, and you'll always be able to perfectly recreate the original music CD...":

You are welcome.

Nice thread.

MaxMax
When I have a large screen, I keep a section of two column widths open on the right.  I keep my Linkman dropbasket, icons like those for killing programs pskill, maybe a note thing, winlister, screen capture, in that area.  You might have some good ideas.  Yes, it could all be handled from the start menu, but it helps clear thinking.  If Quicknote sizes nicely I might put it there, Pnote or Notezilla would other examples.

Add some funny stuff. ;D

coffee open files with ur defined application instead of the system associated one when you press the Alt key.  258K   USB

Hline make your cursor into a horizon line. Stupid right? ;D, it should be helpful when reading article.  31K   USB
PS: you can add color like FF00FF to the shortcut (target) to change the line color.

Nyan Cat Progress Bar, yeah, nyan cat! It displays the Nyan Cat over the top of progress bars. Maybe your child will love your PC more.   662K   USB
PS: It seems doesn't works very well on Windows 10.

Security Check. It checks your vulnerable applications for security.   460K   USB

Finally, since MassiGra is not available in English and it didn't under-maintained anymore, here is another great photo viewer from Japan --- QuickViewer, super fast.   USB
