ShareX: Screenshot Capture, Upload, And Share All Wrapped Into One

What if you could take a screenshot at any time, in any shape, in any format, all with no more than a simple click of the mouse or tap of the keyboard? What if you could instantly upload your taken screenshots to an image host, so you can share them immediately with friends? And what if you could also share image files from your computer? If any of that sounds intriguing to you, then I have the perfect program for you: ShareX, recently suggested by one of our readers. I compared ShareX to my other favorite Puush.

Why You No Longer Need a KVM Switch For Your Multi-PC Setup

Why You No Longer Need a KVM Switch For Your Multi-PC Setup

A KVM switch makes me think of those archaic hardware A-B switches that once were used to hook up a parallel printer to two computers. KVM is actually short for “keyboard, video and mouse”, and is a still-relevant device to hook up one keyboard, mouse and monitor to multiple computers. But if you really want to save some time and money, there are software solutions to operate two PCs with just one mouse and keyboard. Imagine you could just slide your mouse off the one screen and see it arrive on the other!

3 Ways To Remove EXIF MetaData From Photos (And Why You Might Want To)

Did you know that your photos contain hidden information, including the GPS coordinates of the location they were taken at, the date and time, camera shutter setting details, and possibly even the name of the program you used to edit them? This type of metadata can be useful, but you may want to remove it from your photos before sharing them online. Cameras — both standalone digital cameras and smartphone cameras — add this metadata to the photo when they create it. You can easily view this metadata and erase it.

Hack Windows Explorer for Efficiency Boosts

Windows Explorer — known as File Explorer on Windows 8 — is an application that you probably spend a good amount of time in. Even Windows geeks that avoid using any other Microsoft program tend to use Windows Explorer instead of a third-party file manager. But, while we spend time customizing our browser with extensions, we often don’t think about hacking our file manager. There are a lot of ways you can customize Windows Explorer to make your file management experience faster and more efficient.

5 Lightweight Music Players That Don’t Sacrifice Features

For some time, I have been searching for the best free music players out there. Time and time again, I find myself coming back to my tried and trusty Foobar2000, but every once in a while I wonder if there might be anything even better. In terms of sheer power, yes, there are great programs like MediaMonkey and MusicBee, but is there anything both awesome and lightweight? Personally, I’m just bored looking at the same music player day in and day out. Won’t you join me as I explore these high-performance alternatives?

3 Best Third-Party Uninstallers & Why You Need Them

To uninstall a Windows program, you can’t just hit ‘Delete’ — you need to run the software’s uninstaller. Unfortunately, the ‘Uninstall a program’ option in the Windows Control Panel does not always completely remove it from your system. Traces like registry files or program folders might remain. To get rid of an app once and for all, you sometimes need to use a third-party tool. There are many third-party Windows uninstallers to choose from. Here are the right Windows uninstallers for your needs…
