Windows 10 Color Control

Program: Windows 10 Color Control Version:N/A
Author: RaMMicHaeL
Website: [ http://rammichael.com/getting-brighter-colors-in-windows-10 ]
Download: [ 112.8 Kb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: Windows 10 allows you to customize the taskbar and start menu colors, but it provides only a limited set of predefined colors. In addition, no matter which color you’ll pick, the taskbar will end up being dark. I searched, but haven’t found a straightforward way to have a bright taskbar on Windows 10. Fortunately, I have discovered that there’s an undocumented registry key which makes explorer use an alternative color calculation algorithm, which in turn produces brighter colors. You can see the difference in the example image above. I wrote a quick application, Windows 10 Color Control, which allows you to modify the Windows 10 colors, and to get this alternative color calculation algorithm. The original Windows 10 calculation algorithm is referred to as the “New auto-color accent algorithm”, according to the undocumented registry value name.

Mirror

Program: Mirror Version:1.4
Author: Guillaume Ryder
Website: [ http://utilfr42.free.fr/util/Mirror.php ]
Download: [ 130 Kb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: Mirror copies a directory to another location. If the destination directory already exists, Mirror only copies the files having been added, modified, or deleted comparatively to the source directory. Mirror is especially adapted to frequent backups. Compared to a classical directory copy, time is saved because only added or modified files are transferred. Moreover, when Mirror detects that a file is no more present in the source directory, it deletes it in the destination directory too. This saves disk space if you rename or move files. Mirror is a command line tool, without graphical interface. It can be easily used in scripts and BATCH files.

Website: [ https://cresstone.com/apps/shellNewSettings/#appInfo ]
Download: [ 6 Kb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: The 'new' context menu in explorer tends to get cluttered with entries that never get used. The usual way to manage it is with Microsoft's Tweak UI application; but it's difficult to install on versions of windows newer than xp. So I made this app as an easy way to disable/enable entries. It disables shellnew entries in the same manner as Tweak UI, so the applications are compatible.
