Bulk Rename Files and Folders

We've covered a bunch of different applications that can be used to bulk rename files and folders, and normally they all have their own strong points. Bram is another one of those utilities, and like the others it has some features that set it apart from similar apps.

Fast Image Viewer for Windows

I remember testing out the ImageGlass photo viewer last year and was impressed with the speed at which it could shuffle through photos, but I wasn't very fond of the interface. When I recently checked back in on the project I noticed that a technical preview of ImageGlass 1.5 was available, and it is looking pretty good.

Easily Share Text, Images, and Videos With Others

When you are looking for a way to share content with friends there is a seemingly infinite number of ways you can do it. Another option you should add to your list is JustPaste.It. This website doesn't require a login, and makes it really easy to share text, images, and even videos (but only videos uploaded to another site like YouTube).

Wrap Around the Mouse Both Horizontally and Vertically

We've covered some apps that will wrap around your mouse when it reaches the left or right side of the screen, but Mousinity is one of the first we've seen to do all four sides of the screen. That means it can jump from the left and right sides, but also from the top and bottom.

Organize Files on a PC by Name, Date, Type, and More

Sometimes a folder can get overwhelmingly unorganized, and trying to sort it out manually would take forever. That's where a program like Folder Axe is handy. You can throw a huge directory of files and folders at it, and then choose how it should sort the files. It will then organize them into directories or ZIP them up for easy archival based on the parameters you specify.

Archive a Site on a Mac

Last year we wrote about a free Windows and Linux tool called HTTrack that will let you create an offline archive/copy of a website. Unfortunately the app wasn't available for Mac users, but there is a great alternative called SiteSucker that does pretty much the same thing and has a much nicer interface.

I'm sure you've come across a situation where you've wanted to track the changes that have been made to the Windows Registry because it can be nice to know the changes a program is making. That is where an app like Regshot comes in to play.

Automatically Restart Crashed or Closed Programs

If you have a program that you want to ensure is always running the free ReStartMe app may be a necessity for you. All you have to do is give it a list of processes to monitor, and if one of those processes are ever caught not running it will immediately start up the app again.

Terminal Alternative for Mac

I spend quite a bit of time living in the terminal on my Mac, and so I was rightfully excited when I came across the free app called iTerm 2 that squashes some of the things I wanted the built-in app to offer. One of the things I really needed was a search feature to quickly find things from past commands I've run, and iTerm 2 does that very well.

Safely Eject Drives in Windows

In Windows there is an option to safely eject a drive from the machine, but it's not always successful nor is it very thorough. The free and portable ProEject tool tries to take it a step further by cleaning up all possible traces of the drive to make sure it isn't being used anymore.

Toggle Individual Function Key Actions on a Mac

When using an Apple keyboard with your Mac the function keys take on alternate purposes. For example, if you press the F8 key it will play/pause your music instead of sending the F8 signal to the application you're using. There may be some of those function keys you'd prefer to act like the F1-12 that they do on other keyboards instead of the special functions that Apple assigns to them.

Perform Actions on the Text/Images You Copy

Whenever you copy and paste something you are probably doing so with the intent of transporting that snippet of text or image somewhere else. Maybe you're copying it into a Word document, saving it in Evernote, performing a Google search, mapping an address, or one of the many other possibilities.

Inbox2 Brings Your Mail and Social Networks Together

I know a lot of people who stick with their webmail interface because it's simple and does everything they need it to do. The nice thing about Inbox2 is that it may be a desktop mail client, but it tries to aggregate mail from all of your different accounts as well as your social networks.

Intype: Text Editor for Programmers

A lot of programmers I know prefer to use a simple text editor when programming rather than a full-featured development suite. If you're one of those people I highly recommend that you try the very polished Intype text editor. It is easily one of the best programmer-focused text editors I have ever used, but you may be disappointed to hear that it is only free until version 1.0 is released.

The Google Alphabet

Google's auto-complete feature tries to predict what you want to search for by looking at popular search terms for your area. I decided to make a list of the most popular search terms in the United States, which I was able to accomplish by manually setting my location to the United States rather than my specific city.
