WHAT A DRAG!
Minimize Windows and Drag Files with Ease
Ever grab a file on your desktop only
to realize the destination folder’s sitting behind an
open window? To get around this, drag the file to an
empty space in the taskbar and all open windows will
minimize, allowing you to move the file wherever you
want. Using this method, you can hover files over
minimized windows to restore them.
Monitor CPU and RAM Usage
We can already keep tabs on our CPU
and RAM through the Task Manager, but there’s a better
way. CPUMon displays the same
information but ups the ane with an adjustable,
unobtrusive transparent graph, CPU-speed monitoring,
statistics that include the average CPU and memory
usage, and a handful of other options.
Enhance the Clipboard with Ditto
and take Windows’s clipboard to new heights. Ditto
retains up to 500 copied entries, including images, and
stores the information on your hard drive, so you won’t
be thwarted by a power outage or system reboot. Stay
productive by exporting saved entries and transferring
them to another computer, paste HTML as pain text,
perform keyword searches, and apply hotkey shortcuts to
the first 10 items.
GET FASTER BOOTS
Remove the OS Logo and Improve Boot
Until instant-on technology makes a
breakthrough in home computing, we’re left to our own
devices to reduce system boot times. One surefire way
to save a few seconds is by disabling the boot logo.
Open the Start menu, select Run, and type msconfig.
Under the Boot.initab, check the /NoGuiBoot box and
apply the change.
