DeskAngel Information

Publisher's Description:

DeskAngel is an enhancement utility for Windows desktop appearance.

DeskAngel is an enhancement tool for Windows desktop. It is simple, portable and totally free. It contains following features:
1.) Directly scroll the document under cursor, whenever it is actived or not, while rotating the wheel of the mouse.
2.) Maximize and restore window under cursor after click the wheel/middle button of the mouse
3.) Auto scrolling the document with pressing the wheel button down and rotating one step.
4.) Toggle a window topmost after right click its titlebar.
5.) Transform left + right click to alt + right click, to enable the translator feature for Lingoes or Babylon without touching keyboard, etc.
6.) Transparent a window with ctrl+alt+wheel scroll.
7.) Capture a screen range to clipboard or into a file and save the file path to clipboard.
8.) Hide cursor while typing.
9.) Edge snap is like Aero snap of Windows 7, which makes windows snapped at the edges of screen.

In order to arrange my daily work and make the windows more fashion, I started to develop DeskAngel on year 2002, under windows 2000 pro. It went through windows 2000, windows xp and now arrived at windows vista. Some features are dropped in the journey, but more are added.

Under windows 2K, 'connect to remote pc' is one of my favorites. Because in our office, we should access data share pc, our assistant's pc, my colleagues' pc and etc. Sometimes we must delete the previous connection in order to fire a new connection request. It helped me much. But windows xp comes and, it can remember network accounts and passwords, the feature became outdated.

Then, I have my first notebook, IBM thinkpad r40e. It has a full-size keyboard, but is lack of win key. I used to lock my system by 'win+l' hotkey when I left and won't like to change it. IBM do provided a tool to map alt or control to win key, but the mapped key only pop up start menu. It could not be used as a modifier key. I also tried some other keymap tools, some of them can do the job, but they all need to restart the windows after mapped. So, I implemented the feature myself. I'm a programmer, huh!

Nowadays, my most loves are: 'set window top most', 'maximize/restore by middle click', 'inactive document scroll', 'left+right->alt+right' and 'screen clipping'. 'turn off monitor' and 'auto scroll' are also very useful when I'm working on a desktop pc. Now, things become common and usual. Says, if you never knew it, never had it, and never used it, life won't be different, but once you have it, you couldn't live without it. DeskAngel is such a tool.

Besides the features that make daily works easy, DeskAngel also offers some functions which make windows look a little cool and fashion. In the age of windows 2k, DeakAngel can make the text background of icons on desktop transparent, just like other softwares do. Windows xp can transparent it by itself, so that is another feature which was dropped by time. But that is not the only effect that DA can do.

The operation system of windows 2k and laters provide a way to create a translucent window, DA can do it for every windows alread created on desktop. Linux can display only the title of a window, DA can do it. Linux display a cross-arrow cursor when you are moving a window, DA can do it. Windows 7 displays only icons on taskbar, DA can do it. Windows 7 can snap a window to the edges of screen, DA can do it too. :-) And one of the users want to hide the cursor when he is typing in non-microsoft applications, now it's available.

Until Now, DeskAngel has about 20 features and most of them can be disabled if you don't like it. DA is totally free, and portable, without any advertisement, backdoor or something like that. After started, you can find it on the system notification area, aka system tray. It is running in background, silently. If you don't like it, double click the icon to exit. If you like it, signle click or right click it and select 'start with windows'.

As it is a tool that I also use day by day, bugs will be fixed immediately and new features will be added quickly if they are useful, sometimes it will be updated frequently. No matter how many features will be added, small, simple and fast are the most important things I have considered.
