Keyboard Banger - I wrote this Java application (not an applet) for my 1 year old. It runs as a full screen window and listens for keyboard or mouse events and draws interesting shapes and plays some funny sounds.

StartW is a small utility for starting other programs from Windows shortcuts. It can add or remove environment variables before launching the program, or it can ignore the program if it or another program is already running -- useful for games in folders used by children.

WinCtl is a free small command line utility which provides simple control of windows. From the command line, you can minimize, maximize, restore, raise, lower, hide, show, resize and reposition windows. You can specify which window by its windowid, name (title) or class.

Some useful free tools such as "DTREG" (command line registry manipulation), "MSGBOX" (display message from batch file) and "ACTIVATE" (start or switch to window/program).

The "DTREG.EXE" program has some very handy command line features.

The Code Project - QuickWin -

Dialog and Windows Programming

A simple windows program which captures standard output and standard error from a console type application (a "more" like program).

This program can be very handy when working from a command prompt.

I have a "p.cmd" which basically looks like:

 quickwin.exe %COMSPEC% /c %* 

And I can call it like:

 p dir c:\*.cmd /s

About these Bookmarks

These bookmarks are of subjects or products I find useful (or think I may in the future). I never link to a site as a pre-condition for them linking to me! As I use Windows I am mainly interested in software for this operating system. Where good free software exists I generally only list the free software (I list some shareware and even some commercial software where it is exceptional).

If you have some completely free software (no adware and without timeouts or major restrictions) which you would like listed then please email me:

  1. The URL (direct to resource's page) - not to the download.
  2. A proposed category (existing one if possible)
  3. A short description
To bypass my SPAM filter the subject should begin "SUGGESTED LINK:".


Creating These Book Mark Pages

This page was automatically created from Windows internet shortcuts (or favorites) created with IE or Netscape (OS/2 WPS URLs can also be imported). You can comment any link or category and just about anything can be changed (links don't even need to be in tables). PPWIZARD, a free tool for Windows, Mac OS X, Unix or OS/2 built these pages using this source code .

All URLs are checked periodically using the my free URL validation tool (for Windows and OS/2). This ensures that very few if any links point to moved pages or return 404 errors etc.

Made with my FREE PPWIZARD program (HTML preprocessor). Create MAINTAINABLE sites using templates. My site contains over 600 pages.
