Game Cleaner for Steam [246 KB] Win 7 - Win 10   Freeware

 

Game Cleaner can clean up all of the unneeded junk in your Steam folders.

 

We all know that Steam can become bloated, leaving behind numerous junk files. While that's not a huge problem for most, some of the junk can cause issues with your games.

 

We've seen problems with Steam games crashing, or not running where cleaning up junk is almost always the first suggestion. Often, after someone suggests you delete some files, you find that it didn't work, so someone suggests you delete other files. Frustrating.

 

Game Cleaner can save you the trouble of identifying specific files or folders and clean up everything at once.

 

Features:

Finds & Deletes old prefetched and cache data.

Removes old browser data cache images, scripts. etc

Unused stacked up data, from months ago, in your steam game folders.

Deletes install packages (DX, Physx, DotNet, VCRedist)

 

Game Cleaner is easy to use but should be a portable app. You can choose which files are deleted. Some of the categories include crash dump, HTTP, library, statistics, and GPU cache, log files, and numerous install packages.

 

During installation, the default language is Arabic, so be sure to select your language.

ipconfig GUI [463 KB] Win 7 - Win 10  Freeware

 

ipconfig GUI gives you a GUI for the command line ipconfig utility.

 

All included commands are easily accessible, and it provides the ability to select many individual switches like release, displaydns, registerdns, etc., or pick them all. To operate ipconfig GUI, choose a command, and click the Go button. The results are then displayed in color for easy reading. You can also modify the font colors directly from the window menu. This app takes a bit of the apprehensiveness that some newer users may feel when tasked with utilizing the command line. It is also a convenient option for the more experienced since it has the commonly used commands in a central location available for quick deployment.

 

ipconfig GUI can be downloaded as an installable or standalone program. The standalone version will not save settings.

Set up is a breeze, and the user-friendly interface allows for quick utilization and permits you to save any capture to regular image files with a truly massive amount of formats being supported. While using Hardcopy, after making a capture, you are greeted with a Hardcopy editing window. This window allows you to edit and tweak the image with annotations, title additions, correct/change the color scheme, as well as the ability to reallocate resources like bitmaps and EXE/DLL file icons. Every captured image is displayed inside a marked preview window that includes some to-be-expected screen capture tools (line/shape drawing, filters, watermarks, etc.)

 

Even though this version is free, there is no skimping on the included features, which are way too many to list here. But you can take a look at the comparison page at http://gen.hardcopy.de/pv.php3 for a full listing.

Stickies can be modified in size, font, and color (by single sticky or all the new stickies). When an alert is reached, the sticky automatically jumps to the center of your screen. The date and hour will be in red as well as including the possibility of adding sound.

QTranslate [1 MB] Win 7 - Win 10   Freeware

 

QTranslate allows you to perform language translations from various selectable online sources, including Google, Bing, and Yandex.

 

It supports fast hotkey translations using Ctrl+Q to show translation in a popup window or Double Ctrl click to reveal the translation in the main window). One neat feature is the ability of QTranslate to speak text from your translated data (Ctrl+E) as well as perform dictionary searches (Ctrl+Shift+Q). Also, you can open the main window and type text in manually or copy-paste.

 

QTranslate supports over 56 languages that are outlined when you select a service to use for translating your target text. If the particular service can't perform the translation, the selection is grayed out. If this occurs, you can jump to another service and pull the translation from them. It can also lookup individual words using several online dictionaries. You also have access to a spell checker, and translation history to keep track of your translations for future reference. There is also a virtual keyboard included, an option to custom set the auto-detect language and audio playback for your translation, including some regional accents.

 

If you need to translate text often, then you will find QTranslate simplifies the process and provides an efficient manner to complete translations.

Lively [183 MB] Win 7 - Win 10   Open Source

 

Lively is an Open Source, portable app that can turn video, images, emulators, HTML, websites, shaders, and games into Windows desktop wallpaper.

 

Lively comes with ten examples to get started, including video and web wallpapers. A link is provided to download live wallpapers from Reddit.

 

Lively has a friendly interface and a library of downloaded or added wallpapers.

 

One of the interesting features of Lively was the help system. For example, when I tried to drag-and-drop a JPG, Lively let me know how to do that and offered to take me to the required page.

 

We were also impressed with the limited resources Lively uses. On average, Lively used 100MB of RAM, and in our tests, we never saw our CPU spike past 5%.

TeraCopy [4.2 MB] Win 7 - Win 10   Freeware

TeraCopy is a compact program designed for quickly copying and moving files.

It comes packed with many useful features like the ability to copy files faster by dynamically adjusting buffers to reduce seek times to a minimum. Asynchronous copy allows for the speeding up of file transfers between two physical hard drives. TeraCopy will also allow you to pause and resume file transfers - being able to pause the copy process can help free up your system's resources when needed and you can resume copying with a single click. It will also verify the files after the copy process has completed ensuring that they are identical. This verification is done via source and target file hash comparison.

TeraCopy can also be fully integrated with Windows Explorer's right-click menu and can be set as your default copy handler for ease of access.

TeraCopy also features error recovery; in the case of a copy error, it will try several times, and if still unsuccessful it will just skip that file and continue with the transfer. You also have an interactive file list which shows any failed file transfers allowing you to fix the problem and recopy only the problem files.
