General Software Discussion / Battery Management software
« on: May 20, 2017, 04:59 PM »
I am trying to move back to Windows from Mac.

One of the software I use on Mac is which shows notifications on when it's good to unplug and plug back in depending on calibrations it does to the battery based on its cycles run etc.

Am I right in understanding that it's not recommended to always have a (Windows 10) laptop connected?

Is there a similar program for Windows? I did a google search and found

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

When I open any image in Photoshop, it is all screwed up like in the attached screenshot.

At 200% zoom, it looks alright but when viewing at anything less than 200%, the image doesn't appear the way it is.

Any idea?

Operating System: Windows Vista 32-bit
Photoshop version: CS4

General Software Discussion / How to add URLs in RUNit?
« on: November 13, 2009, 10:54 PM »
I came to know about RUNit, a portable launcher via freewaregenius.

I can drag files and folders into the setup window just fine but can't understand how to add URLs to a list.

If anyone knows, please reply.

Currently left clicking and right clicking the tray icon does the same: show BTS menu.

It would be very helpful if left click cycles between the available browsers in the list.

General Software Discussion / How to run a program and minimize it?
« on: October 12, 2009, 09:57 PM »
There's this program Billy that gets minimized to system tray when the minimize button is clicked. I would like to launch this program and have it immediately minimized to sys tray. So I created a shortcut to it and set it to run minimized via the shortcut properties. However when it is launched via this shortcut, it doesn't go to the tray instead appears like this:


Is there a fix to this natively in Windows other than having to depend on writing a macro using AutoHotKey or otherwise?

General Software Discussion / What are some good multimedia viewers?
« on: October 05, 2009, 06:23 AM »
I am looking for a windows program that can be used to view, organize and tag multimedia: images, music and videos.

Does ACDSee handle videos and mp3s also?

General Software Discussion / Looking for a AutoSave program
« on: September 24, 2009, 06:37 AM »
I need a program that will send Ctrl+S to designated list of running applications every user specified time interval.

I tried running http://www.atopsoft....m/products/autosave/ and have it like so:


But it doesn't do anything at all.

Any other recommendations? AutoHotKey script is welcome.

I tried unsuccessfully to write a macro in MacroExpress:

Any idea how to fix this?

BrowserTraySwitch / Need help switching browsers using FARR
« on: September 22, 2009, 10:50 AM »
I can switch default browsers by right clicking system tray icons just fine.

I want to do the same by using FARR. So I set up the following aliases

Browser Tray Switch - Firefox | C:\Program Files\BrowserTraySwitch\BrowserTraySwitch.exe -switch C:\Program Files\BrowserTraySwitch\BrowserFiles\Firefox.btsregfile
Browser Tray Switch - Maxthon | C:\Program Files\BrowserTraySwitch\BrowserTraySwitch.exe -switch C:\Program Files\BrowserTraySwitch\BrowserFiles\Maxthon.btsregfile

Nothing happens when I use the above. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

I've put together an alias group using which one can search in one or all (Ctrl+Alt+Enter) of the following 12 sites:

Freeware Genius
Free Download a Day
Gizmo's Freeware Reviews
Elite Freeware
Freeware Mission
Download Squad
Cybernet News
Digital Inspiration


Attached is a zip file that has the .alias file and the needed icons.

If you find this useful and want to see more similar sites added, please reply.

LaunchBar Commander / Feature Request: Double click to open a folder
« on: September 08, 2009, 11:32 PM »
I have a lot of Folder type nodes that displays subfolders as submenus. I would like to be able to go to any folder when I double click on it (both in the dock as well as popup menu).

Currently the option available is Ctrl+Click (which for some reason doesn't work properly/always...I have to some times press Ctrl+click twice or thrice to trigger opening of the folder).

Double click is easier to do than Ctrl+click.

I am looking for a free s/w that will magnify a circular region around the cursor. Like in the screenshot below:

that screenshot is from a video and my guess is that it's a feature of some screencasting s/w on Mac.

I am on Windows and was wondering if such a feature is available in Camtasia or alternately if I can find any simple program that will magnify the region around the cursor.

Thanks for any pointers.

This is one of the best programs I have found out in the recent times! :Thmbsup:

I am looking for a bookmarklet or greasemonkey script or Firefox add-on that will show/highlight all those links (anchor text, if present for the link) on the current web page that open in new window/tab (i.e., URLs that have target="_blank" or target="_new").

If anyone knows this, please post.

@mouser: Please move this thread to the right forum if need be.

You can control Windows XP computer by using a free program called Shoot. It uses the in-built Microsoft speech technology. I wrote a blog post with a short video where I open browser, search, open and close tabs, switch tabs; run notepad, calculator etc. by issuing voice commands.

For details, visit :D

Below is a screenshot of my blog post. Clicking on it will take you to the above URL from where the video can be watched.


Is there any other similar free program that works on XP?

Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Google Chrome Wiki
« on: September 12, 2008, 02:56 PM »
Check it out: 

If you find that any Chrome related stuff that should be in there but is missing currently, please add it there or post in here.

Comments/feedback is appreciated. :D

Tab Mix Plus add-on for Firefox has a handy feature where in you can switch to previous and next tabs by scrolling your mouse (with the cursor on tab bar) up and down respectively. We can achieve the same in Google Chrome using AutoHotKey. This post gives the details:

Hi guys,

As you already know Google Chrome does not yet offer customizable keyboard shortcuts. In the mean time, we can use AutoHotKey for setting keyboard shortcuts to common tasks like switching to previous and next tabs, going back and forward in the history, closing and un-doing last closed tab. Function keys can also be mapped for these actions.

I have written about it in a blog post. If interested, check it out.

Thanks to Lanux.

Besides True Launch Bar and LaunchBar Commander, are there any other applications which can display sub folders & files upon mouse over? Let's say my 'My Documents' folder has 10 sub folders (again, some of them have sub content) and 2 files, most of the free s/w (like LaunchOnFly) can't let you simply add 'My Documents' AND show its content dynamically upon a mouse over. You will have to manually add each folder/file that you want to the menu.

TLB implements this best but isn't free.
Virtual Folders
You can also create virtual folders on the True Launch Bar. When you create a virtual folder, you select the folder's content you want to see in the toolbar menu. It can be any folder on your disk or on a local network (Favorites, Programs, Recent, etc.); or you can add file system folders such as Printers, Control Panel, My Computer, Dialup Network or other similar folders. If you right-click on an item in the virtual folder, you can see a full context menu like in the Explorer window, and you can perform any action from this menu (Properties, Open, Delete...).

LBC doesn't yet have a context menu for the menu items.

So, any other software? Ideally I should be able to bring up the launch menu upon a keypress at the current cursor position.

LaunchBar Commander / Show sub menu items on mouse over

Is it possible to have a menu's items come up on mouse over as opposed to mouse click?

General Software Discussion / How to extract icon of a folder?
« on: August 17, 2008, 10:39 PM »
I found several software that extracts icons from dlls and exes, but none that would extract an icon of a specified folder itself. I want to get the .ico file of a specific folder. Any ideas? I have already looked in %SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll and it's not in there.

On both Windows XP and Vista, pressing Windows+S key stores the session into memory (not sure if it is standby/sleep or hibernate) and resumes when the system is restarted. How do I prevent this? I don't want Win+S key to do anything to do w/ power management.

Thanks in advance.

Is it possible through some software to click the links and buttons on computer screen by touching with our fingers?

Techtree has a useful article on the search for the Perfect File Copy Manager.

The software mentioned are TeraCopy, CopyHandler, SuperCopier 2, Total Copy, YCopy and Unstoppable Copier.
