Boss Key Explained

GemTech Articles

What is Boss Key?

Boss Key is a screen privacy application that has the purpose to protect the privacy of a computer user by instantly hiding applications without loosing data and without closing them.

Which issues does Boss Key solve?

Nowadays the offices are crowded and it is difficult to find a place where one can use a computer in private. Writing a confidential email or entering sensitive information on a web site could be a problem in the crowded office with inquisitive colleagues and a patronizing boss or at home with over-caring and curious relatives. The Boss Key application can solve this issue instantly.

How does Boss Key work?

Boss Key is an application that is loaded automatically when Windows starts and stays invisible in the system. The only way to view it is to use a secret key combination in order to activate it or view its settings. The settings can be password protected too so even if one manages to guess the shortcut the settings will be still hidden. Pressing the secret Boss Key combination the application hides all windows from the screen. At the same time the tool can mute the sound, hide system tray icons, task bar, desktop icons and even switch the display resolution. Once the threat is gone a single key stroke restores everything back to the state before the point of interruption.

Below is a demonstration video on how this works.

Print Directory

GemTech Articles

Printing directory is something that everyone has needed now or then. This simple-looking task unfortunately turns to be a bit hard as there is no built-in support to do that in Windows.

I recently found this cool tool that can Print Directory tree easily.

There is a video tutorial on how to print directory her:

The main goal of this free tool is the disk cleanup task, and printing a directory is just a tiny feature from all the things it can do. With its Explore style interface you can start using the tool right away without the need of checking the documentation. The application can scan certain folders or entire hard drives and present the results sorted by size in a neat report. This makes it easy to determine the space hogs immediately. The distribution of disk space is also visualized with nice pie and bar charts that can be interactively used for navigation too.

I will focus on the options to print the contents of a folder here rather than discussing the many fancy features of Folder Size. So in short there is a Windows Explorer context menu “Scan with Folder Size” and all you have to do is to navigate to the folder that you want to print and use it. This will start the application which will scan the corresponding folder and list all the files and sub-folders of the selected item.

In order to print the results use the File->Print option. This will display the Print Preview dialog where you can choose multiple options. Folder Size prints to many formats including the proprietary PPV (Print Preview), PDF, EMF or multi-page TIFF, of course it will print to the printer too.

Download this FREE tool and save valuable disk space by organizing your files.

Printing directories is easy as pie with the help of the Folder Size application.
