push-to-talk-image (archived)

It toggles the audio device's mute. Used as a global push-to-talk when a program does not support such a feature, such as with a web browser that does not currently have focus.

(on Wikipedia)

A malware scanner.


  • Their portable scanner is still just an installer.
  • It found an Wajam plugin from Magic Camera, presumably installed for either Internet Explorer or Edge.

    • During scanning, it claims to have found infected files, but those files were neither reported at the end of its scan nor found in its quarantine. What gives?

A defragmentation tool for individual files.

Note that defragmentation is irrelevant with an SSD, and even with a HDD, Windows will auto-defragment if you leave it alone for a bit. For windows 8 and Windows 10, my administrative settings are so aggressive that when I'm inactive for five minutes it pokes around to see what it can defragment.

  • As of 2016-02-15 on Windows 10, 1.35.04 is in my toolkit.
  • I had tested v1.0.0rc1 on Windows 8.1 a while back, for Path of Exile.

Like a good Linux window manager, allSnap allows Windows' applications to snap to the main screen area or to one-another.

That is, when dragging or resizing a window, it will try to cling to a nearby window. This makes it easier and faster to adjust windows "just right".

  • Works on 32 and 64-bit Windows.
  • Run both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions to cover all applications.
  • 2017-09-01 - 1.5.0 beta on Windows 10 64bit

    • It's been working just fine for some time now.
    • The website is gone.
  • As of 2016-02-11, it hasn't been updated since 2010-07. (source)
