ChromeCacheView provides a simple set of tools for monitoring your browsing history within Google's Chrome Web browser. While its layout is disappointingly bland, its results are ample enough to appeal to all but the most jaded information junkies.
The program's interface is a very basic window with not much to speak of in the way of graphic design, which was disconcerting at first. However, we quickly learned how things worked without any instructions or Help file. ChromeCacheView proves its strengths in the form of data. It immediately showcased our browsing history within Google Chrome. Everything buried inside our … Read more
Next to antivirus protection, regular backups may be the single most important measure you should take to protect your PC, your data, and yourself, yet studies consistently show it's the preventative measure PC users neglect most. There is simply no excuse for not backing up your system, especially when you consider the following facts: (1) You have a lot of money invested in your hardware and software; (2) Your PC most likely contains files, records, and archives that are important to your life and well-being; (3) something is certain to go wrong; and (4) backups are easy, especially with … Read more
Periodically you may have a collection of files that you may wish to catalog by printing a list of the file names out on a per-directory basis, or by saving the name list in a document. Unfortunately there is no way to do this directly in the Finder. There is a "Print" command in the Finder, but this will open a document in the preferred application and try to print it from there instead of printing the current folder view.… Read more
WinMend Folder Hidden is an interesting security utility that can safely hide any file or folder on a Windows partition or removable device, which covers most users' hard drives and external drives as well as flash drives, memory cards and sticks, micro devices, and anything else you can store a file on. Your files and folders stay safe and hidden even if they're reinstalled on another computer, and they can't be seen or accessed by other programs and operating systems. You can enable password protection for specific files and folders or whole volumes of data. WinMend claims that &… Read more
SpaceMan 99 is a file management tool that lets users maximize their disk space. The program's simple layout and common-sense features make it effective and easy to use.
The program's interface is plain and looks a lot like Windows Explorer. The contents of the user's system are displayed in four panes: one shows folders, one shows files within the selected folder, one shows the names of duplicate files, and one shows the location of duplicate files. Users can run a scan of a given folder to determine how much space is being used and can then have … Read more
Google Docs has long let users share documents between one another, but folders--a feature Google begrudgingly added to Docs back in mid-2007, have largely been left out of the picture.
That changed on Monday, as users are now able to share entire folders of documents, spreadsheets, and presentations with other people.
The benefit here is that the permissions settings for a shared folder controls the individual file permissions of all the documents inside of it, meaning that you don't have to go through and change each document's viewing permissions one at a time. It's also an easy … Read more
TextCatch pulls words from any document or Web site, operating very much like a screenshot tool. With simple controls and excellent results, this program is great for anyone needing to copy text.
We were pleased with the program's interface, which is a single screen containing only a few intuitive commands. The topical Help file was only useful when we were performing the more technical duty of specifying input. Since we'd used screenshot software before, this program felt instantly familiar. We were given the option to choose a whole screen capture or to draw our own box. In each … Read more
iTunes requires shared folders to authorize any purchases you make from the iTunes Music Store. Should this folder be moved or deleted, or have the permissions changed, users could experience several issues with authorization.… Read more
