I received my license key immediately and instructions were perfectly clear, thank you.
I googled "automatic screenshotter" this evening and the first result was from your site. I didn't know the name or your utility, I just typed it because I needed an automatic screenshotter for Windows, always useful to have some record of what's happening on more important PCs. Anyway, I was very impressed with your software - very configurable, very powerful, zero nonsense, I like it. And your website follows the same principles, totally different from marketing-heavy websites we are so used to today. Happy to offer some support.

Coding Snack: Shortcut Creator

blog clipart
I would like to select with a click a folder, file, program ; and applying a key combination over that selection automatically create a shortkey (direct access to that folder, file, program)  in another folder or place. Usually in the windows desktop.

Better is the key combination invokes a selection table with my shortcuts definible favorite folders.

I am trying to go faster that the usual way :

over the file , click right button - send to - windows desktop (shortcut)

Best Regards

Coding Snack: FFBookmarkUnpacker

Intended for use on a ramdisk that clears on each boot. For non-ramdisk use, avoid duplicates by deleting the old unpack root folder before running.

This is an easy way to have FF3 bookmarks show up in FARR and Everything.

Edit: a limitation: the script only unpacks one level of bookmark folders. It doesn't unpack recursively.

Coding Snack: ALT key down visual indicator (for when alt key is stuck)

blog clipart
i'm fighting my logitech mouse which likes annoying me by locking the ALT key down (i have alt + tab assigned to a mouse button and i suspect it doesn't release the alt key sometimes).

it would be helpful if i had some kind of warning, probably a tray icon, that indicated that the ALT key was held down (i could provide the icon for this, i'm thinking that a flashing red dot would be easy to identify).

i'm sure this is an autohotkey type problem so i appreciate that i could spend a few hours/days trying to figure it out - but i'm hoping one of you autohotkey masters will help out.

SelectAll: Using the Control and A Keys to Select All Text

I find that Control+A doesn't necessarily select all text in various contexts and typically notice this after typing Control+A.

Not finding anything that seemed to help, I put together a little utility tentatively named "SelectAll" in an attempt to improve the situation a bit.  I have been using it for a bit now and have found that it has turned out to be useful in my particular situation so after some discussion with mouser, decided to post it.  (Please let me know if you know of something similar or better.)

Boot Snooze: Faster boots combining hibernate and restart

A DC Member wrote about an interesting idea for a utility, which was promptly coded by resident DC coding snack phenom Skwire, and dubbed "Boot Snooze":

Many users use the hibernate feature instead of shutting down so they can start the computer faster next time, there a downside for this though: the computer will hardly ever get restarted, so it can't perform the usual startup checks and other stuff that keeps the OS healthy.

If others took the other rote and decided to shutdown the computer completely, the next start will be slower than a hibernate of course, but at least the OS will have a chance to reload, free memory..etc

So why not have both? When a user wants to shutdown his computer, the little program will kicks in: performing a restart instead, which will then be accompanied with a hibernate after the computer completely boots so the next boot will be 5 seconds away!
