The site also has other freebies. This is the first one I'm trying as I just noticed it mentioned on Addictive Tips. Here's the page for the program:

Should work on anything that AutoIt3 supports(which I believe is XP and later both 32 and 64 bit.)

btw I updated TicTac to v. 1.1. Now you can change the Hotkey modifier using a setting in the .ini file. For example, you can set it to use Alt or Control-Alt instead of Win Key etc.. Also has About dialog to show the current hotkey, show readme file etc..

The .ini file has comments showing how to set the modifier key.

For some reason Google Chrome - Get a fast new browser. For PC, Mac, and Linux is not on the list yet. This link also has a link to the Beta on the page. If you want to try the dev version, just Google it.

TicClick

Hotkeys


TicClick v. 1.2.5.0 does the same thing as TicTac, positioning the active window to one of 9 spots, except it only uses the mouse. WinKey Left MouseClick pops up a grid with the 9 positions and you click the position you wish to move the window to. You can edit the .ini file to change the hotkey. Eventually I'll have a menu command to avoid editing the .ini file. It will just pop up a dialog and save the result to the .ini file. I'm still working on the dialog stuff.

edit: I took the easy way out and added an "Edit IniFile" command that opens the .ini file with the default program(via Windows file association) and quits the app so it can be restarted with the new settings. At least this way you don't have to dig it out of the folder manually.

edit2: I updated TicClick to 1.4.0.0. Now it has a Check for Update command in the Tray Menu. Seems to work fine for me, but I haven't tested it with a dial-up connection. I'm updating a few other programs with this feature. It's preferable to just posting announcements.. also more convenient than going to the web page. Might take me a bit of feedback to get all the bugs out.

Note that these programs on my
Hotkeys
page now have a Check for Update command in the Tray Menu:

ReOpen
FolderCache
Selector
TicClick
TicTac

Way more convenient.


This is the first time I've implemented going online to check for updates so a few notes may be in order:


It seems to work fine on my system, but I don't have dial-up to test with a dial-up connection. The function uses standard Inet calls, so it should be pretty vanilla.

The update process only sends file download requests to the server. No other info is sent. The file version info in the .exe file on your system is compared with the latest version available, that's read from the downloaded file. If the one online is newer, it asks if you want to download. The version info is in a small .ini file I keep updated on the server. The name of your running program is used to look up the file version info from the downloaded .ini file. Once the update check routine has the info it needs from the .ini file, it's deleted. Super simple.

If you update, the zip file and the program folder are both opened, and the program quits, so you can overwrite it with the newer files.
