Screenshot Captor / Delete white space
« on: January 01, 2020, 09:27 PM »
So, I've taken a screenshot of a window that has a dropdown menu showing (for the docs for my NANY application, in fact!), and I do it over a white background.

Is there a way in SC to use the magic wand to render the selected area as transparent?  Normally I have to open Photoshop just do this.
In SC, I can select the white area, but when I push the delete button, nothing happens.

Is there a way for SC to display it's toolbar with 32px icons?  I'm talking about the toolbar in the editing window.

A Handy Dandy System Admin Tool
To do all those things you *want* to do when managing a new system.

This program will trigger most antivirus apps; make sure you add System's folder to your antivirus exclusion list.  Also, if you use this on your flashdrive, beware of the computer's antivirus or it will steal the exe from you.  I've never been able to figure out exactly what is making this app appear dangerous, so I can't fix that.  I also don't ask for any money or anything in return, so if you don't use it because you are afraid, then I'm not going to lose any sleep over that.  haha!  I use this program myself and designed it to suit my own purposes.  Hopefully, you will also find it useful.

  • Portable
  • Tiny interface
  • Completely customizable menus, commands and main interface
  • Advanced RUN box with memory - this needs some work, however; just warning you.
  • Instant Computer Info in main panel - click the values to copy to the clipboard.
  • Access the default Windows system menus, control panels and commands
  • Add your own commands
  • Have multiple menu and info configurations and switch betwen them.
  • All of the program menus also appear as a menu for the system tray icon

Planned Features
I wrote this program because I often have to set up computers for other people, or I have to do maintenance or fixes.  It seems I always end up using a whole bunch of programs to do things - a folder full of tools, and I can't remember or find the ones I want, sometimes.  With Systemus, I have a single program that I can use as a launcher.  It also tells me the most basic system information that I want, such as ipaddress and mac address, Windows version and what model of computer I'm working on.

There are still a bunch of bugs to fix and some features to tweak.

Simply extract the contents to whereever you like.

Using the Application
Using this program, you get a one-stop program that can give you quick links to all the Windows control panels, built-in applications, and system menus.  You can customize the menus to contain just the ones you like, and you can add links to your own programs, portable or non-portable.  You can run scripts, batch files - anything you want.  You can even add your own menus and submenus.

Delete the folder containing the application and its settings.

Known Issues
Well, I am writing it to work for Windows 7.  Most of the commands should work for Windows 10, too, but I don't have any way to test this.  When I finally migrate my computer to Windows 10, then I'll update the program with Windows 10 features, but I don't know when this will happen, and it will probably be awhile.  In the meantime, I am willing to accept suggestions.

Systemus will probably trigger your antivirus.  I haven't figured out why, just yet.

Is there any way to run a userscript on a chrome-extension:// url?

I want to make some tweaks to the Feedbro extension, but Tampermonkey won't run on chrome extension pages.

Is there a way to do it?  I don't have to use Tampermonkey.

Living Room / Buying a 2TB SSD to replace my 2TB HDD
« on: August 16, 2019, 02:44 PM »
For some time now I have been considering to replace my workstation's HDD with an SSD.

  • 2TB HDD with partitions for C and D
  • 2TB HDD with partitions for K and I
  • 128GB SSD used for IRST acceleration and also for system's paging file
  • 250GB nvMe SSD where I keep Waterfox, FreeCommander and Thunderbird (the disk was unstable when I got it, but haven't had any trouble since; but didn't want to trust an OS to it)

And my questions for y'all are these:
  • When SSDs first became popular, everyone warned how heavy usage would run them down, but that's a long time ago now.  I'm sure they are more viable now.
  • What SSD should I buy?
