Windows95 TaskBar...Is like a year round Xmas tree with all these little
programs hanging on it.
I think I can't live without them. I am sure some will be duplicates
of other's favorites, but that just shows our good judgment. Some are based
on how you have your system setup and some are for just personal taste.
Most of these files are on the bbs and ready to download.
Hard Disk Led I use because my drive light is to my right in a tower case and I have to stop and open the door and turn my head away from my screen and the activity going on there. Hdled sits on the task bar and flashes a small light in syncopation with your drive activity in one of three color selections, yellow, red, or green. Shareware reg 5.00 HDLED.ZIP
SendToBack A desktop window shuffler. Fast and efficient. With just a right click you move top open windows to the rear until you get to the one you want. Maybe not for every one, but there are times I have many windows open and I always need one towards the bottom of the pile. Freeware SENDBK20.ZIP
Tray Utility is one that is not used all the time but it is handy to have when you need it. It closes all open windows and clears a portion of the task bar when you have to shut down files and windows to install a program. Freeware TRAYUTIL.ZIP
TopDesk30a The new version features an animated icon for the TaskBar and will call up your start-up menu besides any other individual desktop icon you need and will also hide your desktop if you prefer..Freeware TDSK30a.ZIP
Dunce252 Manages all my auto dial up and password entry for the internet. Freeware this version. DUNCE252.ZIP
Swapmonitor Is strictly for grins. I moved the Win95Swap file off my C: drive. Created a 100mb max, 5mb min, Win95swap file in virtual memory to my last drive and this little program, when you touch the mouse cursor to it gives you what size it is now, the largest it has been, the min etc. Lets you know which applications are the real mb eaters. Donationware if you want, otherwise freeware. SWAPMON.ZIP
ClipBoardPlus A simple little clip board extender. I can't work without one. You can set it to save as many clips as you want. Don't know what it's limitations are. I keep it set at 150 and that is enough for me. Freeware CLPBDPLS.ZIP
Not to be confused with a Notepad++ that is out there. NP+ is a Win95 Notepad
extender, handles large files, and has some formatting ability. I write
these little articles with it and read all the file_id.diz and other miscellaneous
file handling things without calling up a word processor. Freeware NPPLUS.ZIP
Although I have many more registered programs up there working, such as virus monitors, voice a cursor writing programs and my independent Bookmark Stash, CleanSweep, etc. these little utilities work hard and well. Plus they are free or have a very minimal fee. Happy File Hunting....
