    Nice to see this thread is still plodding on!

    I use Locate32 to search my PC. It is without doubt the fastest and most versatile I've ever used.
    Cheers,
    Keith

    A couple of programs I've come to love since the last time I posted in this thread:

    Filezilla FTP Client and Server http://filezilla-project.org/

    Audacity Audio Editor http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_pro

    VideoLAN Media Player http://www.videolan.org/

    and I've really come to love the flexibility of Thunderbird http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/

    But I was talking about the Program, "Search Everything"
    Not Windows's search which is junk!

    Free File Transfer Program

    Go to https://www.wetransfer.com/ for a free little program that will tranfer your large files in a very fast time frame. It is free but they try to sell you a paid ver. Transfer large files in seconds if not a minute or two. I love it!

You know the one's I'm talking about, the first ones that you put on a computer if you've just installed the System Software. Those little programs that maybe even Microsoft has realized how good they are and they've integrated them into their OS (like a zip program).

    I can name a few, but I'd like to hear your favorites and if you can offer a link to them that would be great as well.

    One of my favorites is MomWallpaper, a wallpaper randomizer that let's you set the amount of time each wallpaper is shown, resize, stretch, run randomly or sequentially, and it works with just about any image format. I liked it so much that I bought version 1.1.3 years ago and it works perfectly, but you can download free trial of it.

    Another of my favorites is GoldWave. It's another shareware program that gives you a huge amount of options in editing Wav files and you can also use it to record any sound the comes through your sound card at excellent quality.

    I'll list one more (although I've got probably a dozen or so I love). The last one is CDex. I believe it is Freeware. You can rip tracks from your audio CDs into Wav or Mp3 format and it even supports CDDB so it can download and automatically list the CD Artist, Song Titles, and more. It supports a ton of audio formats and even lets you convert audio files as well.

    Well there, I've listed just a few of the "little" programs I really enjoy and you can even download all of them for yourselves (at least a trial). I'm very eager to hear some of your favorites.


    me too! I love MOMWALLPAPER.So nice!

    Is it really so that this "What Little Programs ...?" thread is closed to new posts? I don't see a way to initiate a new one.

    I'm not sure I follow what you mean. Posting a new message is what you did when you clicked on "Post Reply." Now if you want to post a message, unconnected to this thread, you would create a new thread, by clicking on the "New Thread" button at the top of this forum.
