Free calculator software - Moffsoft FreeCalc is a great replacement for your Windows calculator.

Adjustable calculator size - Make it any size you want and Moffsoft FreeCalc will remember the size and position next time you use it. (see example)
Tape - Save, print, or clear the simulated paper history tape.
Color schemes - Select a color combination or use your Windows color settings. (see example)
New keys - Clear Tape {CT}, double zero {00}, triple zero {000}, and memory subtract {M-} keys have been added.
Visible memory value - You'll always know what's in memory because it's displayed on the calculator status bar.
Option settings - Flat buttons, always on top, tray icon, run on startup, and hiding the tape are some of the calculator options. (see example)
Digit groupings - Number groupings for easy to read numbers.
International support - Digit grouping and decimal point characters change based on your regional settings. (see example)
Tray icon - Turn on the tray icon for quick and easy access. (see example)
System requirements - Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/Vista/7

I can't tell from looking at the home page so perhaps I can ask. Can you use the number pad keys? I'm asking because these calc apps where you have to click the buttons with the mouse are next to useless for me. I didn't want to run the installer only to pull it right off my system.

I just did a simple addition test with the number pad on my laptop and it worked. Here is a screenshot of the keyboard equivalent.

Thanks. Mostly I use PCalc but sometimes the tape thing can be handy.

Quick Access Bar is a Windows Toolbar which can be used to add important shortcuts such as control panel, system drives, external drive, etc to a secondary taskbar on top with auto hide feature. It acts as a secondary panel with an option to add many of the commonly used items which you might not have space to pin to your default taskbar. Hovering your mouse over a system drive displays disk space and the startup Orb allows adding and removing items from the bar. It is a good option for people who might wish to add a secondary taskbar with auto-hide functionality to add shortcuts to Windows resources and custom folders. This way one can avoid cluttering the desktop with unnecessary shortcuts and can instead add them to a secondary panel.

The aim of Quick Access Bar is to improve productivity of an average user by providing quick access to local drives, external drives, control panel, etc.

Is there a way to move it to the side of the screen? Can't seem to find the setting.

Transpose 1.6.0.0

The main reason I wrote it was to make Control-t transpose the 2 characters left of the caret. The most common typo I make is reversed characters. By hitting Control-t I can fix it on the fly("thsi" after Control-t becomes "this" as I originally intened.) Since I run that in the Task Tray all the time now, I added a few other changes.
I've updated Transpose to 1.6.0.0. Instead of installing an AutoCopy type AddOn in each browser now you can just have Transpose running in the task tray. It now supports Chromium Firefox and Opera based browsers. To copy text to clipboard, select text with the left mouse button. Press the Alt key before releasing the left mouse button. On release of the key and mouse button you should see the text deselected. It should now be in the clipboard.

The About dialog has also been updated with the new browser and hotkey info. The new source is included. If you wish to add your browser get the ahk_class name using the ahk spy tool and add it to the "BrowserGroup" group in the code, then recompile.

I decided to give FreeCommander XE a try and *YES* you can use the Beta XE on the same system as the normal 2009.02b version. They use separate data areas under C:\Users (Win 7) to save the .INI file. Watch out for a bug where it tries to save the INI file to App-Data\Roaming\FreeCommander XE\Settings without first creating the settings folder.

I found several other bugs in the handling of ZIP files (but the interface is heading towards drag & drop - good improvement). There are also many features that have not been completed at this time.

In all, it will be great when it is done. But don't rely on it for production use yet.

I tried FreeComander XE for about a week and thought I might be able to switch to it permanently. Prior to this I have been using PowerDesk for many years, but PowerDesk comes bundled with a bunch of stuff I don't really want. Unfortunately, I discovered that the XE version does not have a built-in Search feature. So I gave up on it and went back to Powerdesk 8 which is available free if you fill out the German Language registration webform.

I've looked for a good PowerDesk replacement a few times in the past couple of years but so far have not been able to find anything that works better. FreeCommander came close...perhaps I should have tried the non-Beta version instead.

I've been using FreeCommander for years. I wouldn't let lack of a search bother you. Everything Search is pretty tough to beat since it senses updates on NTFS without indexing. When you plug in a USB drive or something that triggers it, it will scan your drives for a few seconds. But it's much less intrusive than Windows indexing service.

When the new FC comes out I just hope I can migrate my settings. I have many programs hooked into it. I still use Explorer for lots of stuff but FC has cool things like built in Rename utility and folder sync that are quite nice.
