BossKee – Hide any window instantly with a shortcut

BossKee is a utility which I coded in a single day to help hide any Window from prying eyes. There are numerous times when you are reading something private (like an email, nsfw joke) or viewing photos and suddenly out of the blue realise someone behind your shoulder is peeping at your computer screen. Usual reaction is to fumble trying to find the minimize button (atleast mine is!)

BossKee User Interface

This application lets you target a specific Window from a list of open Windows. BossKee then runs in the background silently monitoring the Window you selected. The minute you press the shortcut (Ctrl + Space), it hides the selected Window instantly. To bring the Window back, simply press the shortcut combination (Ctrl + Space) once again. Go on, fire up that browser or application you were working on, without having to watch your back.

“BossKee – I have your back!”

CopyX v1.0 beta – File / Folder queue utility for Windows

CopyX User Interface

I’ve continued developing in .NET and C# and have developed this small application called CopyX. I tried to make it as simple to use as possible.

When you want to copy multiple files / folders in Windows (even Windows 7!), explorer will open a new copy dialog for each operation. This will eventually slow down the copy process as you run multiple copy / move operations. I wanted some way to queue up files / folders to be copied like adding multiple jobs and processing them like a queue. I searched online and came across TerraCopy but for some reason it wasn’t stable on my system so I decided to write something of my own and release it for free ( as always 🙂 )

CopyX was born! Please use it, abuse it, do what you like with it! It comes with no warranty or support. If you have issues let me know but I’m not sure when I will release an update. Hope it helps someone out there the way it helped me.

Note: You need Microsoft DOT NET Framework 3.5 to run CopyX

Simpo v1.0 beta – The Simple Password Organizer

Simpo User Interface

DOWNLOAD

I’ve been a hardcore C++ buff right from the early days. Recently I decided to take up learning C# and .NET. Boy, was I in for a treat. I was blown away. Don’t get me wrong. C and C++ are still my favorite languages. But the simplicity and speed of C# and .NET reminded me of the Visual Basic days. Heck, they’ve even gone and made Visual Basic Object Oriented (VB.NET)

Anyways, I developed this nifty little application in my spare time (~ 3 days). Hope you guys find it useful. It basically maintains a list of all the sites and passwords that you enter in it so that you can keep track of all your passwords in one place. We all know how frustrating it is especially with multiple accounts and logins and not remembering the passwords at the right time.

The application even encrypts all the usernames/passwords/comments you store so that no one except you can have access to this sensitive information. Just make sure you don’t forget the password. There is no way to recover the master password and you will lose your data if you do. Lastly, this is hobby software and comes with no guarantee. Let me know if you find any bugs or if you can suggest some enhancements. This program needs .NET framework 3.5 installed on your machine.
