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

Winbdows 7 ultimate x64 | Ubuntu 12.04 x64 LTS
 
 

I'm a little surprised as how this program haven't yet made it to this thread considering how much of a long time people spend in here...

If you spend much time before a monitor and care your eyes and don't want your sleep patterns to be altered (believe me i have experienced it, not good), should definitely install this.

F.lux: software to make your life better

Redshift | jonls devblog (Inspired by F.lux, focuses mainly on linux distro, but got a CLI version for windows)..


May seem a little awkward at first, but soon you'll get used too (and your eyes will be grateful to you ;p ).

Well now you do.
I used f.lux's linux version yesterday but it didn't performed well. Got reset on its own to normal color temperature. But thank god Redshift works just flawlessly.

UrlPack 1.5.0.0

UrlPack 1.5.0.0 is free for you to use at your own risk. It may be downloaded here:

Hotkeys

Just search "Url Pack" for the link.

The idea is to create a set of URLs by dragging from the browser Address Bar or associated icon, onto the Desktop or the URLS folder. This allows you to set the browser to open to a blank page, rather than bogging down coming up with a multiple tab set that's been saved. UrlPack either uses file association and delays to open the URLs in tabs, or creates a command line with multiple URLs. See the Readme.txt "Run Silent" for details.

But, in a nutshell, once you have saved a pack, you hit the hotkey and the browser comes up with those URLs open in tabs. Try it and see if you like it.

All my software is free for you to use at your own risk. See Requirements at the top of all my download pages. Some utilities may only work correctly on 32 bit systems. But most it shouldn't matter. I only have English Language Windows for testing. So I cannot deal with Unicode/Code Page problems. Likewise I have a single monitor system. So multi-monitor support is not possible at the moment.


edit: update : 1.5.1.0 no longer uses .vbs script. Everything is run right out of the AHK_L script now. I recommend updating so it will work on machines without PowerShell installed.

edit: update : 1.5.2.0 Bug fix release. Browser path could be wrapped in double quotes, even if already quoted. Fixed.


edit: update : Url Pack 1.6.0.0 Added Tray Menu command Set URL Folder to change the default URL folder. This allows you to save multiple packs.

Today I once again checked the list after a long while. I found that Exact Audio Copy has still not made it into the list.

Exact Audio Copy is about the best free program out there to rip CDAs into the lossless FLAC format. In addition it can retrieve the track names from a database on the Net and also make great cue sheets.

USB Image Tool

I find this program a must for keeping image copies of my bootable USBs.

USB Image Tool lets you create backup images of your USB drive(s) or other USB storage devices, such as flash drives and music players. Simply select the device you want to back up and click a button to create and exact backup image of your drive, which can be used to restore or duplicate your drive if it is damaged or lost. your USB drive. You can also use the software to swap the content of your drive by simply loading it with a different backup image.

Unassociate file types in Windows 7 & Windows Vista

This utility may come in useful:
Here is a utility that helps you unassociate a file type quickly in your Windows Vista or Windows 7 computer without the need to edit the registry manually. Windows 7 & Vista do not provide a GUI option to unassociate file types.

More information
Command Description Remove file association (User) Removes the user-specific association (via the Open With dialog) for the chosen file type. Note that this button will remain dimmed if there is no user-specific association for the file type. Delete file type Deletes the file type completely from the registry. Both the user-specific and global associations for the chosen file type is removed. Refresh list Refreshes the list box contents.
