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.
Recently I came across some posts on forums from people complaining that there is no Folder Size column in Windows 7. While this is true there is a pretty good reason for it.
First of all none of the files systems support such option by design, which means that it is not available to the operating system. Why is that? Imagine for a moment how this should work at all and the reasons will be quite clear. If folder size information is updated it means that on every file operation the system must update this information. While this may not be a heavy operation if you save or delete a few files just think if you copy or move millions of files? Such operation will take ages. On the other hand you have at least 500 files open in your operating system at any given time (including ones used by the operating system itself) so all those have to be constantly tracked.
Such tracking will lead to immense system slow-down and if it was really implemented the people from those forums that complain about the folder size column not being implemented would be complaining against it. 😉
What do you personally prefer – a constantly slow system because of a feature that you use rarely or just to look for an alternative to scan your folder sizes under Widows 7?
Folder Size is not available not only in Windows 7, but also in Windows 8, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows NT, Linux, Mac OS or any other operating system because of the performance issues mentioned above.
I hope I have managed to explain this clear enough. I personally like the thinks they are and I use this FREE Folder Size application whenever I need it. It is very lightweight and fast and has a beautiful interface resembling the one of Windows Explorer with plenty of charts. This is my personal favorite in the disk cleanup process.
Watch this video tutorial:
There is a lot of information about duplicate finding on the web, but I am going to guide you to the best FREE tools to do that.
Finding duplicates is not an easy task and we have to first choose a duplicate finder tool to do this. There are plenty of tools out there, but most of them either do not work properly or they install some nasty spam stuff on your computer. Even the reputable ones install some tool bars and crap that you can not easily get rid of. This is really annoying as you was supposed to clean up hard disks not install extra stuff.
So the Windows 7 Duplicate Finder that I finally found is named Fast Duplicate File Finder and works like a charm:
The tools is very fast and finds all the duplicates properly. Some of the other tools that I tested missed duplicates or displayed incorrect results. Make sure to run this in 100% mode for duplicate detection as it has also a mode where it can find similar or duplicate file names.
This tools has also a PRO version, but all you need is available in its FREE version too. Of course if you need to do fancy stuff like export to XML or add some special filters to the search you will have to go PRO. For all of the rest of us the FREE version works just fine as it can find 100% duplicate files and also search for similar or duplicate file names. The tools supports all Windows operating systems including the latest Windows 7 and Windows 8 versions.
Oh did I forget to mention that FDFF has an internal preview? A very neat feature that displays most of the common file formats including images, video, text files, binary files and many more. This makes it very easy to review the results and compare them right inside the application.
Do not forget to check also the disk analysis tool by the same company as it is also FREE.
