Wandering through post there are the forever questions of:
How do I do this or that? These include from the impossible to those task easily accomplished with the use of Power Tools as well as Peaks and Tweaks.
Many of you may be familiar with Karens Power Tools, however for those of you who are not, they are some very useful little programs. Ever wonder exactly what your home network is doing? How about the exact guts of your computers? How about those shortcut things for Shut Down or Hibernate? Ever want to easily print the content of a folder?
Karen makes her tools available for a very good price. FREE! Which is reasonable enough. No bullshit, no spyware garbage, just plain good stuff free. The power tools are available as a compiled program ready to run, also for the developer minded, they are available as open source code in VB 6.0. Using the free source code, the developer minded can modify and change the code to suit their purposes. You need to have VB 6 installed to mess with the code. Also for those running Windows 98, 2000 or ME you need to download and run the VB6 Runtime download available.
You can find her tools here:http://www.karenware.com
Look to the left at free programs and read the newsletters that pertain to the programs (helps to know how to use them). Then download and enjoy. Again, if you are not developer minded, do not download the open source code developer versions. Without VB 6 installed, they will not even open. Just download the program.
For those on dial up, no big deal as the programs (Tools) are relatively small files.
