Idk anyone here talked about this topic or not. but its my favorite topic for years.
Thanks for BGM's suggestion JetToolbar
its a tab launcher. the only thing I don't like it is that it cant be active the tab by hover it, in this situation stablauncher
is a great alternative.
Then I got an idea I always have. what about we share our software collection!
Idk what exactly less-known means, it can be really less-know or just less-known to yourself but great useful tools you have found. Or something like files2folder
which is famous in the dc forum but may less-known outside.
But still I made some rules, the software must be:
- Less-known of course!!(that means it is seldom mentioned in the blog site like Ghacks&lifehacker)
- It should be old age(non-essential) but still works on the windows 7,8,or10
- Youd better give the download location
- Screenshot always welcome
- A short description is needed
Now I provide parts of my list here(actully I don't know whether my list is followed the 4 rules above or not, but that should be a good start, hmmmm...
network speed meter. portable with simple functionPandoc
the most powerful text converter but seems seldom mentioned(if it is really well-known then forget about this one)texter
from lifehacker my personal favorite text expander, written in AHKclipstep
Best simple clipboard manager!! its original from skrommel s AHK script, but l like this modified version. also you may say clipjump
is better and more powerful. but i like something just simple and function.
