Display Changer II 1.7.3

Change the resolution of any Windows display (width, height, color depth, refresh rate, scaling, and rotation) permanently or only while a specific application is running. Display Changer II can also clone (duplicate), extend, add, detach, and rearrange the displays in a multiple-monitor setup. It can even configure your multiple monitors for AMD Eyefinity (so you don’t need to bother with the AMD Control Center). This is useful for presentations with laptops as well as games and home-theater computers. Display Changer II uses XML files to specify your monitor configurations. This can be an advantage over Display Changer, which uses command line switches to specify settings and must be run once for each monitor.

Typecast 3.11.2

Typecast displays a list of the television shows you want so you don’t have to crawl through an endless grid of channels. Typecast uses your custom searches and the television listings for your area to find the programs you want to watch instead of a seemingly-endless sea of junk. Whether you’re a serious TV viewer who DVRs and time-shifts everything or a casual viewer who watches TV before bed, Typecast finds what you’re looking for.

Typecast displays only programs that match your searches, from recent PG action/adventure movies during primetime with closed-captioning rated four or more stars to soccer matches between the Chicago Fire and the New England Revolution to new, HD episodes of Saturday Night Live with Whoopi Goldberg or Will Ferrell. No more wading through Paid Programming and reruns of Project Runway (unless that’s what you’re looking for). 🙂

If you use Windows Media Center, Typecast can communicate with WMC and display which programs have been recorded and which are scheduled to be recorded. You can also use Typecast to schedule programs to record on your WMC. (If you used Ceton’s abandoned My Media Center application, this makes a great replacement.)

Enterprise deployments of Windows frequently suffer from corruption of the built-in Windows Calculator app. Enterprises also often disable the Microsoft Store. In those cases, companies can use on-line or off-line licensing for CalculateX. If those solutions are not right for your company, please contact Sales to arrange volume pricing and distribution.


Timekeeper 1.62.4

Display the date and time on your taskbar in any format and color (including transparent). Get rid of that tiny, useless Windows clock. Pop up a calendar when you need one. Resize it to show as many or as few months as you want. Move Timekeeper around and it’ll remember its position and size, or not—your choice).

(I have released Timekeeper as open source on GitHub. Contributions are welcome, especially a fix for the display issues on Windows 10.)
