A Really Nice, Powerful Clipboard Manager 2 years 5 months ago tormozit

Very weak reason to choose clipboard manager. You can copy any piece of text from any place (even from other clip in clipboard manager) to make new clip and then you can edit it and it will be stored like usual clip. There are many clipboard managers that allow to do this (for ex. Ditto, ClipAngel).

Since this does not work in XP
XP users could use Ditto instead
This is the latest version that works in XP (32bit) -
https://sourceforge.net/projects/ditto-cp/files/Ditto/3.21.134.0/
I tried the latest 4 to prove that 3.21.134 is the most recent that works in XP
I was only trying the portable versions.
There is a slight chance that the installed versions will give a different result ? ?
Anyone who wishes to experiment with those, can find them here -
https://sourceforge.net/projects/ditto-cp/files/Ditto/
Rob
PS I am willing to give ClipAngel a go (in XP).
I am a bit worn out, but anyone who is interested, could do similar experiments with older versions of ClipAngel -
https://sourceforge.net/projects/clip-angel/files/
If you post the result (previous version that works in XP), I will Shirley give it a try.

I have a very specific set of requirements that include:

- tiny memory footprint (<5MB)
- truly portable (no dependency on any framework, including .NET)
- easy to trigger (Win + V or simpler)
- ability to format/manipulate text in the buffer
- ability to store/organize permanent snippets

ClipX was my go-to clipboard manager for many years, but it didn't play well with Windows 10, so I spent a lot of time trying out all the clipboard managers I could find to find an alternative. I finally settled on Clibor, and have never looked back. It's amazing how much power was crammed into such a small utility. If you can get past the crowded interface and sporadic wonky translations, I highly recommend giving Clibor an honest try.

I'm always going to give you a five just for the time you spent researching and writing the article, but I sometimes wonder where you find these, so called jewels/gems? I put no Trust in "Web of Trust" and I could find very little information about this offering. And the little I did find gave me no confidence in it. I do trust "VirusTotal", for that most part, but I'm not going to download and install a program just based on that.

Agree on all points made by wildweasel, including Web of Trust which I don't bother looking at anymore. It *may* be okay for tech stuff, but gets wildly skewed by trolls on topics where people have strong opinions, e.g. politics, spiritual paths etc. I appreciate the efforts put forth by those reviewing new freeware, but don't want to waste time testing every new program that comes to someone's attention when what I'm already using, e.g. TeamViewer in this case, is as good or better.
I'd suggest including a clear reason[s] in these recommendations why someone might want to switch software.

I tried this a long time ago and I distinctly remember that I hated it at the time. The idea sounds great in theory, but in reality it kept dimming the screen too much, it was never comfortable.

Perhaps it improved over time, I'll give it another shot.

I agree with Jojo. When I tried F.lux some time back I couldn't stand the reddish hue. Also, I prefer portable software whenever I can get it but F.lux doesn't have a portable version. The people over at PortableApps.com were trying to make it portable but it looks like that project has stalled.

Recently, I discovered a similar app called SunsetScreen ( http://www.skytopia.com/software/sunsetscreen/ ). It was first released on 2015.03.15 so it's pretty new. It also offers a certain amount of flexibility not present in F.lux. And... there's a portable version too.

A Replacement Windows Explorer. With Tabs! 6 years 5 months ago runbei

Suggest readers NOT install Explorer++. Would love to give them the benefit of the doubt. But there's a very serious problem - there is no known way to uninstall it in Windows 7 64-bit.

The suggested method is: make sure the option "Don't replace Windows Explorer" is checked, and then simply delete the .exe file.

If you do this and reboot, the default file manager continues to be Explorer++ in Windows 7. So if you open a folder in Windows Explorer, then double-click a folder to open it, you get an error message - application not found.

If there's a way to fix this, I'd love to hear about it. Is there a setting in Win7 I can change to manually remove Explorer++ as the default?

P.S. After posting to the Explorer++ forum and much waiting and searching, I found out how to make the uninstall process work. You HAVE to run Explorer++ as a system administrator or the uninstall doesn't work. Right-click the Explorer++ icon, choose "Run as Administrator," and follow the steps (they're in the readme).

A Search Engine For Your Windows Registry 1 year 10 months ago Australia

Registry Finder sounds like a great tool for experienced Windows users, who like to edit the Windows Registry

But if you are the average Windows user, there is no need to directly edit the Windows Registry, unless in extreme circumstances

I am a reasonably proficient Windows User since Windows 3.1 in 1992.
Over the last 25 years I have had to use the native Windows Registry editor (regedit.exe) less than 5 times, if at all
I only used a Registry editor when following instructions how to remove a computer infection, from a reputable computer website

Did you know Microsoft once provided a free registry cleaner named RegClean. It hasn’t been supported since Windows 98. Microsoft removed it from their website because it caused so many problems

Alternatively, some software customises which programs start with Windows - and allow you to indirectly edit the registry - these programs if reputable are usually safe
In addition, some uninstaller applications do check registry entries when you remove programs, even then only delete the registry entries directly related to the program being installed, and not other more general registry keys

Windows Finder is a Registry Editor
On the other hand, avoid any "Registry Optimising programs" that claim to speed up your computer, or claim to delete registry duplicate entries, or claim in any way to improve your registry or to optimise your computer in any way
Such programs are all designed to steal your money from you, and never work as intended
Such programs can damage your computer so badly it doesnt start, and Windows has to be reinstalled. You can lose all your data in some cases

The best ways to speed up your computer are:
1)Use portable programs wherever possible, as installing programs often adds to your computer start and shutdown times
In the last 25 years a major trend has been the advent of free and portable software (many on TechSupportAlert) for most computer functions
There are now very reputable portable Media Players, portable Image Viewers/Editors, portable ScreenCapture utilities, and portable Internet browsers. Find these and use them if they suit you, they prevent a lot of the bloat of installed programs
2)Use a freeware utility which lets you know which programs want to load everytime you turn on your computer
If software that you no longer use wants to start up with Windows, stop it from doing so
Dont stop a process loading at startup unless you know exactly what is it however, some may be important video or Windows drivers
3)Use Task Manager or one of the many freeware alternatives found on TechSupportAlert
Get to know how much memory is used, by each program that is on your computer. If a program is hogging a lot of memory, try and find an alternative program that uses less memory
4)Be aware that a lot of internet browsers have the problem of memory leak - the longer they are being used, the more memory they also use.
Use a Task Manager utility to see if your preferred browser has this problem. If so, find an alternative internet browser
5)Ensure the antivirus program you are using has good online reviews, and isnt known for slowing computers
6)Avoid visiting dodgy sites, including downloading sites, unless you know what you are doing
Increasingly more sites are infecting computers if you click infected links on these pages
7)Use a program uninstaller with a good reputation. Some programs like to clutter your RAM, and like to load on Windows startup and bloat your computer memory. A safe uninstallation program is invaluable for any program you no longer need or use
8)Windows 10 telemetry is Microsofts way of sending information about your computer back to Microsoft, and probably robs your computer of processing speed and/or memory with its various processes. Find reputable freeware on TechSupportAlert that safely blocks this telemetry, unless you have a need for Microsoft to be sending information back to Microsoft about your computer and your computer activities
9)Backing up the Registry can be a good idea. But this does not involve directly editing the Registry
Free and reputable Registry backup programs are available, to be used if your computer needs to be reset to an earlier time because of new malfunctions. Again always be careful with programs that work even indirectly with the Registry
10)Freeware programs are available which notify you everytime a program tries to add itself to the registry, to start up when Windows starts
Such programs are an added layer of protection, and restrict which programs actually are allowed to start when you turn on your computer !
11)Purchase more RAM for your computer, if your Operating System (32bit or 64 bit) can accept more memory

I wont recommend specific freeware utilities, they are all described on TechSupportAlert

In summary, for the average Windows user, unless you absolutely have to, there is usually NO need to be touching the Windows Registry

Lets let Microsoft have the final say. In March 2017, Microsoft specifically stated:
"Microsoft does not support the use of registry cleaners. Serious issues can occur when you modify the registry incorrectly.
We strongly recommend that you only change values in the registry that you understand or have been instructed to change by a source you trust, and that you back up the registry before making any changes.
Before you modify the registry, make sure you back it up, create a restore point, and make sure that you understand how to restore the registry if a problem occurs" (Google: 'Microsoft support policy for the use of registry cleaning utilities')

You seem to be under the impression that portable applications don't write to the registry. That's patently false. *Any* application can read and write to the registry. Further, when using portables, you typically lose features such as context menu entries that for some programs, are worth the price of admission.

Most sense I've heard for a long time on these comments.
However I do often go into the registry, mostly to delete all the left over crap from programs I try and then uninstall. Or the odd clever hack I find from somewhere.
I'll be trying this offering although at present I am happy indeed with the portable editor I've used for years.

A Search Engine For Your Windows Registry 1 year 10 months ago Remah

Your lengthy comment could do with some clarifications.

Registry cleaning was essential for Windows 95 and less so for each later version of Windows.

Microsoft's own registry cleaner (regclean.exe) was originally needed when Microsoft Windows 95 expanded the use of the registry to remove the proliferation of .ini configuration files. There was a crippling problem in Windows 95 when registry files got too big. The program was updated for Windows 98 and the last version was 4.1a in 1999.

It is notable that regclean was only discontinued late in the Windows XP era when it became incompatible with registry changes for Microsoft Office 2007 (released late 2006) and Windows Vista (2007).

Windows XP was also the last version of Windows where registry cleaning could easily produce a performance improvement. Vista still had some serious performance issues which left a little room to argue for registry cleaning but Windows 7 registry performance improved so much that it largely removed the need for registry cleaning.

I did a lot of testing of registry performance and you can read some of my test results for Windows XP in the article Do we really need Registry Cleaners? I stopped testing with Windows 7.

The "best way to speed up your computer" is generally to install enough physical memory because the primary cause of slowdown is so often insufficient physical memory.

I'm fully cognizant of what a "true portable application" is and isn't. I don't need to Google a guide. Simply correcting your statement, based on many years of software development.

view
A Search Engine For Your Windows Registry 1 year 10 months ago Australia

My post refers to 'true portable" applications that make no changes to the registry

For example, Registry Finder is exactly the 'true portable' application that I prefer to use:

"Registry Finder can be used without installation...
The utility does not store any of its data in the registry.
It stores settings in the RegistryFinder.config file located in the same folder as the executable. "
(As described on the homepage)

Over the years, one of the ways that builders kept the price of computers low was to put in the minimum amount of RAM that would work. As the price of RAM has fallen, machines came with more and more. Most machines these days come with a minimum of 8GB which is plenty for most people unless the user is editing photos or videos (or gaming). But the real rule of thumb is you can never have too much RAM.

Registryfinder needs to improve its error recovery routines. If you enter anything it doesn't understand as a parameter, it simply crashes. For example: registryfinder --h instead of -h will crash it. A lot of the command line options I tried caused a crash. For me, the command line parameters are not explained very well and need to show some working examples for each option. This could help avoid some of the crashes caused by entering the parameters incorrectly. Not all parameters are listed on the website as compared to what gets listed from the command line via -h.

Be careful, when I installed it on android it also brought unwanted spam and virus. Had to use malware and then uninstalled.

Further comment would be helpful.

Try to press the close button on an ad window or your device's back button to escape those ads. Hope this helps. view

I'm using Windows 7 so I got to the web site and got this To use this game, upgrade to Windows 10. So I guess I won't be able to use it.

Jojo Yee thank you for resonding.

I did not respond to any adds. I installed the app then as soon as the App was started my malware program came up with an instant message, "Progarm infected' Also there were unwanted pictures already installed. I am not saying that any of this was Jojo Yee's fault it could have been hacked into in some way.

A Top-Class Vector Illustration Package For Windows 2 years 3 days ago tabletguy

For some Windows 10 users, the first time starting up will take several minutes. It does NOT show any program window until after it has processed all of the fonts, although it is running in the task view window. (I started several instances when I thought it wasn't running.) Apparently, it's loading and processing all of the system fonts. One forum testor mentioned that the nightly development build didn't have that problem anymore. Hopefully that will be the case for everyone.

Not mentioned is the fact that Inkscape makes use of the Scalable Vector Graphics (.svg) file format, a World Wide Web Consortium open format for vector graphics. This is the vector format used wherever possible on Wikipedia and throughout Wikimedia, yielding thousands of high-quality, freely usable vector graphics.

And what's wrong with the totally free for Windows, Linux, and MacOS vector drawing s/w Inkscape? On their site http://inkscape.org/ is published a portable version near the installer - it's a matter of taste to install or not to install.

A Top-Quality Vector Drawing App Online For Free 5 years 3 months ago Remah Yes, Inkscape is worth looking at. It is the Best Free Vector Graphics Editor at this site. Just don't give Rob a hard time for not mentioning it. After all this is a "hot find" article rather than a roundup of alternatives. In fact, there are so few good alternatives to paid vector-graphic products that they we're always excited to see a new one. A bigger issue is that most users never bother to move beyond their favorite bitmap/photo image editor, of which there at least five times as many alternatives. view

Without saving / exporting to any vector format I don't find it useful. Free version limitation: Free account can export image (PNG, JPEG) with watermark only. It looks like good way to sell access to wast amount of eye-catching templates.

+1 for Inkscape

What about Sketchup?

Also, Wikipedia has a Comparison of vector graphics editors at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_vector_graphics_editors

Beautiful. I especially like the soft focus and warm colors. The contrast makes the flower seem to have been edged with a pencil. Nice.

A Touch of Yellow - Yellow Crocus Flowers (Wallpaper of the Week) 6 years 3 days ago rhiannon Hi Tim, I don't post desktop wallpapers for any given size, instead I do my best to find wallpapers that have a lot of resolutions, including dual monitor, Android, iPhone, etc. There are some good dual monitor websites out there (mandolux comes to mind), and some sites with good dual monitor sections. The Windows Personalization site has jumped on the bandwagon with some panoramic (dual monitor) wallpapers. I have dual monitors myself and am usually on the lookout for good wallpapers. :) view

Amazing and vibrant – that’s what I would like to call it. The brilliant combination of bright yellow crocus with green background looks as a perfect reflection of the approaching summer. The wallpaper is so vivid with a blissful colour blend that I now have it as wallpaper on my desktop and tablet. Even my friends liked the wallpaper and I couldn’t resist telling them how to download these. I just love the natural art this wallpaper has and I hope to see more of such brilliant works in seasons to come. Thanks!
