Hide Everything Outside the Main Application with CinemaDrape

With the advent of the widescreen LCD/LED monitor we have established a visual landscape where we can easily open more than one application on the screen and take in more information. Under most circumstances this is a wonderful thing; however, I know myself there are times I wish I could create a distraction free environment and hide everything on the screen except the main task (or application) I am focused on.

Well, my wish came true with CinemaDrape

CinemaDrape helps you focus on your current task on the screen (such as a video in a web page, a photo or a document editor area) by instantly blanking or dimming the other less important areas in a web page or in the background windows.

CinemaDrape gives you the ability to turn off (or hide) the side elements by exposing a drape.  For example, let’s say you want to watch a video and hide everything else on the screen.  It is possible with CinemaDrape.  The drape will cover everything but the video.  To get the idea, watch the video [ HERE ] .


Once you install CinemaDrape, there are two things to remember. By pressing Ctrl + F12 on your keyboard will startup CinemaDrape and by pressing Esc on your keyboard will close CinemaDrape. CinemaDrape requires no memory when the drape is not active and no extra tray icon!

Easy to start

CinemaDrape is easy to start: just move your mouse over the area you want to focus on and press Ctrl+F12 (or your own favorite custom keyboard combination). This works in any Web browser or in any other program you are using.

To focus an entire window (such as your current, active window), just move your mouse over the title bar at the top of the window and press Ctrl+F12.

To focus the previously selected area from the last time the CinemaDrape was used, use the Ctrl+Alt+F12 keyboard shortcut anywhere in Windows.

Easy to close

CinemaDrape is easy to close: just press Esc or select Quit from the context menu.

CinemaDrape is also very customizable in that you can resize the focus window, save the focus window as a favorite (to use later), and  change the color of the surrounding drape.
