This Small Portable Screenshot Tool Includes Annotation Tools 1 month 2 weeks ago rhiannon

I have and use Greenshot. It's a good program. I like this one more, it meshes almost seamlessly with how I work. Which is why it's good there are so many screen shot programs, one size doesn't fit all. :)

Attempted to download and run Freemake Video Downloader on Feb. 14, 2020. One can no longer download files in HD and/or MP3 (AAC only) formats for free. I kept getting a popup to 'upgrade to a paid version' for the ability to use those features.. Bummer!!!

I do not see an arrow icon. Here is a screenshot of what I see:

The two "bent" arrows do nothing related to creating arrows on my screenshot.

This Small Portable Screenshot Tool Includes Annotation Tools 1 month 2 weeks ago Frank D

I tried clicking on the two "right-angle" arrows, but that did not give me the ability to draw arrows on the screenshot I had made. I kept playing around with the program for about half an hour, but in no way was I able to produce an arrow of any kind. The only attraction for me to this program was the arrow feature, such as the one that "Fast Stone" has, and its small size. So I uninstalled it. By the way, I am using Windows 10, with no problems associated with it.

The arrows are on the bottom of the screen in Editor mode

This Small Portable Screenshot Tool Includes Annotation Tools 1 month 2 weeks ago rhiannon

Thank you so much for the screenshot. It looks like you aren't in the Editor section of the program.
Those arrows at the top of your screenshot are the forward and backward arrows, and you're right, they can't create the arrows you describe.

I took a screenshot of your screenshot. Along the bottom of the image are the function icons in the editing window. You can see the icons for creating arrows and and numbers and the drawing tools etc.
https://imgur.com/a/wgfyA5j
I can see why you would be frustrated, not seeing the right function icons to do what you want to do and I understand uninstalling it. I wanted you to see that the arrow and other image tools are part of the program and let you know that they are in the editing window.
To get to the editing section, after you create the screen shot, there's a menu at the top - the editing icon is a monitor with a pen. Clicking that will open the editing part of the program. I'm attaching an image of the Sniptool toolbar, the editor icon is the one that looks like a monitor with a pen inside.
Again, I truly appreciate you taking the time to respond and include a screenshot. Thank you. :)

Thanks for all your help, rhiannon and rolandflorida. My problem was this: when the program was run, the editing window was so large that the bottom "taskbar" was below the bottom of my screen, so I couldn't see the tools that create the arrows! I didn't even know there was a toolbar there. So now I can see that the program works "as advertised"! Thank you for a great little program! --Frank D

Some of these images look odd. It may be that we're used to seeing the sun acting in a different direction, and the shadows can make ridges look like valleys and vice versa.
If that's the case, you can rotate the display, but make sure you know how to restore it before you do so!

Using the arrow keys on the numeric keypad (4 is left, 8 is up, 6 is right and 2 is down),

Yes really, people are now becoming like data sources and companies just want to profit from that source. And problem is, how much you try, if you are on the internet, a lot of your personal information or your data in some form is already out there. No escaping from it. Only thing is you can do it, is to be careful with what data you share yourself knowingly, and where. And to be safe with your money, and look out for scam/phishing.

Get Pixel8 Seagate Premium Data Recovery Software Free 1 month 1 week ago gruff

Thanks. I looked there too and had the same luck. I think you're right that it reverts to the paid version after a year. Fortunately the only time I've ever needed to recover data was when Microsoft failed me. I'd been backing up a project I'd been working on for 11 months and the assignment ended. Then just to see if it would restore I tried and it didn't. Since then I've always kept my own backups in native format on an external drive. Even then I transfer it all to a newer disk every 3-4 years. Now I keep two external backups.

Best Free PDF Tools 1 month 5 days ago okspob

As one of the best and the most advanced tools for PDF documents I can mention PDF-Tools from Tracker Software. This software has features similar as PDF-Xchange Editor has, but it’s conceptually different from Editor. PDF-Tools offers seventy default tools that can handle huge number of documents at the same time, also users can create their own tools from the actions in Action Library and set the order of the actions. Most features are paid (lucky for very small price), but any user can try all (!) features for free without time limit and then decide to buy. It’s my favorite software for processing the batch of pdf documents.

Howdy, @Rhiannon, et al: I think you gals & guys are mistaken about this being "free", for one year or any other time period. You CAN download and test its ability to identify files that it "MAY" be able to recover but, then, you have to BUY an activation key to (try) and do so.

view
Get Pixel8 Seagate Premium Data Recovery Software Free 1 month 4 days ago rhiannon

I'm not sure what you mean by an paying for activation key? I ran this several different times on two hard drives and it recovered files with no problem. I was then able play the recovered mp3 files, open and edit text and document files, was able to open and edit images in Irfanview. At no point was I asked to purchase an activation key or anything else. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It does, when you go to recover files, say you've used an activation key. It's in the article. It will keep telling you that, but since the license is unlimited for one year, they are not relevant. It may apply to the paid version.

view
Get Pixel8 Seagate Premium Data Recovery Software Free 1 month 4 days ago rhiannon

You don't have to provide accurate personal information. Way too many sites ask for personal information in my opinion.
I keep a few sets of credentials - disposable email addresses, a Google Voice phone number, etc for this purpose because I do a lot of registering and downloading of things in order to write this column.

The  program is a full featured recovery program that you use on up to five computers, with unlimited amount of recoveries, for one year. This is clearly stated at the beginning of the article.
I guess you could classify it as trial ware, but historically trial programs revert to free version after 30 days, sometimes 90 days. This doesn't revert to a free version. I'm not sure what it reverts to, I haven't been able to find that information. My guess it that it reverts to a paid version but I don't know for sure.

There is also a "discover what's recoverable" app for download which *does* present a trial software details form like the one you described but there's no download button there, just the form. Interestingly, when it comes to the country, Australia (where I am) is not on the list!

I started with KeePass, then LastPass. Over a year ago I moved to Bitwarden and have not looked back. Excellent in all ways. I have it configured so that it does not autofill the passwords or forms, but requires an extra click to fill them. This adds an extra layer of security. It works very well for me and I recommend it to others all the time. Steve Gibson, (GRC.com) one of the world's top computer experts endorses LastPass in a blog, and BitWarden uses the same type of technology where your passwords never leave your computer or phone without first being totally encrypted.

Bitwarden - All the password management you need! 1 month 2 days ago eikelein

Update: THANK YOU Ms. rhiannon!

I just now tried Bitwarden in comparison to Lastpass which I have used several years now.

Scenario: My bank has a "home page" at
https://landmarkcu.com/ that includes fields for username and password.
Within the functionality of the pages involved they seem to pass the values of these fields to the next page that is on
https://www.landmarkcuonline.com/....

Lastpass has for quite some time now "harassed ;-(" me with a warning message about that and I needed to give special permission for this web site internal action EVERY TIME I had to log in!
That is nothing bad but really ANNOYING if it happens like clockwork!

And forgive me, I understand the text in that "warning" message; my average customer would NOT!

Bitwarden just does that without a hiccup and without engaging me.

Thumbs UP for BW!

Hmmm, that's odd.
To be clear, you're clicking the blue add to cart button for the platform you want and are taken to the checkout screen...the product is listed on the left, and the quantity is one, it says the product has been added to your cart, and when you select the Proceed to checkout it takes you back to the Proceed to check out page again?
If you have any ad blocking or security add-ons or extenstions, they might interfere, a system security program might interfere, and have you tried checking out using another browser?
I'm not sure location would be a factor,

I occasionally have problems with an overly enthusiastic security program installed on my computer - it prevents the oddest things in browsers and I have to add a filter or disable it for a bit.

Recover Product Keys From Your PC With This Free App 2 weeks 6 days ago rhiannon

Are you saying your anti-virus blocked the Softpedia download site? That would be quite unusual.

If it's blocking the author's site I would test it with at least one other anti-virus site or program, it's likely to be a false positive. I was not blocked from accessing the site by my anti-virus program and received no warnings using multiple browsers.

As to why it's identifying something on the site as PUP I don't know. Some anti-virus programs are over active and deliver a large amount of false positives - it's best practice to test anything your anti-virus program identifies as a threat with other sources.

I recommend using the Softpedia download link in the article, or the Major Geeks download site I mentioned here in the comments. Major Geeks scans all the programs they have on their servers for malware. Pretty sure if there were a problem it would have been removed from the reputable download sites.

I mentioned in the article that due to the nature of the program (it acts like a password retrieval type program and scans the registry) some anti-virus programs will flag as malware. Any program that behaves that way will likely be tagged as malware. The author mentions this on the site.

The portable version brings up some flags in Virus Total and other testing sites, though the executable version does not.
I've installed both and scanned both using security software on my computers and neither was flagged, and the site wasn't blocked by my security software.

Thanks, I'll give it a try. It looks good - a lot like Belarc, combining system information with Microsoft product key retrieval.

No problems with PUPs or the like here. Panda and Malwarebytes show the file to be clean.

There is a sponsored offer which nearly got me. Just click 'decline' and you will be right.

Cheers,

Paul

Be careful. If the software was installed by the computer manufacturer, these key finders will likely return a one-time bulk installer product code which won't work again. I've been burnt by this more than a few times.
Key finders work fine with a manually inputted product code.
