The prime purpose of the KatMouse utility is to enhance the functionality of mice with a scroll wheel, offering "universal" scrolling: moving the mouse wheel will scroll the window directly beneath the mouse cursor (not the one with the keyboard focus, which is default on Windows). This is a major increase in the usefullness of the mouse wheel.
 
Another (optional) feature involves the wheel button. Since the wheel button is not consistently used in Windows, KatMouse can use it for a kind of task switching: with a click of the wheel button you can push a window to the buttom of the stack of windows that is your desktop, making a recovered window the active window.

Thank you for the pin!

 

Just a few simple utilities...

 

Revo Uninstaller, uninstalls programs. (Better than the paid version)

 

CloneSpy, it finds duplicate files and can delete them automatically.

 

Paint.NET, simple image editor. Photoshop is still best! :P

 

ImgBurn, burns bootable discs.

 

:)

Ever have a problem playing SWF files in your media player? This one should do the trick:
 
Flash Movie Player is a free stand-alone player for ShockWave Flash (SWF) animations, based on the Macromedia Flash Player plugin. In addition to all Macromedia Flash Player abilities, it has some extended features, such as animation rewinding, advanced full screen mode, playlists, browser cache integration and exe projectors support.

Quick Folder Locate & Open
 
You want to open a file but to get to it you have to open multiple folders, one folder after the other, which sometimes gets annoying. The answer to this problem is this small utility, which allows you to locate the folder you want, and then, by one press of a button, opens just that one folder.
 
 
Don't you just hate looking for files in those long file structured folder directories?  This tools helps to save time in that.

Those are always good. Little sites that offer simple links to stuff. This link is nice in looking for specific task minded software...
 
Windows Download Hubs
 
Download Hubs help you to easily and quickly find software that performs a specific task. But here's the twist: we won't just recommend the "best apps ever" and force you to take our word for it.
 
Instead, our editors create a list of hand picked software titles that can accomplish the task and you can make a choice based on your own criteria.

Snap2HTML
 
Snap2HTML takes a "snapshot" of folder structures on your harddrive and saves as HTML files. What's unique about Snap2HTML is that the HTML file uses modern techniques to make it feel more like a "real" application, similar to Windows Explorer, displaying a treeview with folders that you can click to view the files contained within (see example output). There is also a built in file search. Still, everything is contained in a single HTML file that you can easily store or distribute. 
 
 
This one comes in real handy!
