Windows 7: FREE Great Programs for Windows 7 [2]


25 Jul 2012   #111

Windows 7 32 bit
 
 
WinDim 1.1.4.0

Ever want to size and/or position a window on your desktop exactly the same as another window without having to size with the mouse by eye? I have. That's why I wrote WinDim. It's a hotkey that sits in the tray. Winkey +g Gets the dimensions of the active window. Winkey +s Sets the size/position or both of the active window. If the target does not have a resizeable border(cannot be resized) it lets you know, but still allows you to position the window or just copy the dimensions to the clipboard.

You may download from my page here:

Here's a screen shot of the Set dialog

MyDefrag
Price: FREE
Publisher: JC Kessels
Web:MyDefrag v4.3.1

MyDefrag's predecessor, JKDefrag, was a command-line based defragger, which was very light on system resources. MyDefrag is based on the same program, but it's switched to closed rather than open source.

It even has a special mode for SSDs, if you insist on defragging your solid-states - not that we'd recommend doing this.



One of JKDefrag's best features was its ability to run as a screensaver. You could actualyl see it doing its business, bit-by-bit, which makes for fascinatingly ugly viewing. In fact, it prompted my ex to say "I THINK YOUR COMPUTER'S BROKEN".

But it is immensely satisfying to see everything fit into place properly. At 54 minutes long, MyDefrag was also the fastest in our roundup, and it certainly defragged our hard drive properly.

It's not particularly the most aesthetically pleasing of defragmentation software, but it does the job perfectly, and has a whole host of extra settings.

Highly recommended by TechRadar | Technology News And Reviews who gave it a score of 90% (review is from them as well)

Jim just to add to what Brink said you will find you will get even better results (I do at least) to run MyDefrag and then do the Windows one as someone else advised me that the system likes the way that Windows sets up the file system as per install.

I find the MD does the initial defrag real quick and knocks at least half the time off the Windows defrag.

NB If you have an SSD - no defrag mate!!

You can get windows to do boot optimization from an elevated command prompt.

defrag c: /boot

The /boot flag is not documented.
