Control Your Computer’s Sound Volume and Balance From the System Tray

January 31, 2013

Many of us depend on controlling the sound volume on our computers by adjusting the knob on the speakers themselves or through a dedicated controller on the keyboard.

Today, I want to share with you a small utility, called SimpleSndVol, that installs an icon in the system tray where you can, with minimal effort, manage the sound volume and balance to your speakers. Simply click on the icon and the following interface pops up with sliders that you can move around to make volume and balance adjustments.

SimpleSndVol

What I especially like about SimpleSndVol, is that you can hover the mouse pointer over the icon and use the mousewheel to raise or lower the volume; plus, by performing a middle click will cause the sound to mute.

If you right mouse click on the SimpleSndVol tray icon, you will presented with a menu where you can open various system sound controller utilities on your computer (such as the volume mixer, sound applet and volume control options), the SimpleSndVol settings, and an IconSet that give you the ability to change the tray icon. My favorite icon is the one labelled “Triangl [Update]”. There are also some optional hotkey functions built-in if you prefer controlling the sound volume through the keyboard.

  SimpleSndVol

All-in-All, SimpleSndVol is one of my favorite sound utilities that is a work in progress that works nicely on Windows XP/7 and 8.

Quickly Turn Off / On the Internet

June 19, 2012

Typically, I turn my computer “on” in the morning, which is connected to the internet, and leave it “on” until I go to bed at night. A practice that I have gotten into is that when I am away from the computer I will disconnect (or disable) my internet connection through my network settings.  I primarily do this to prevent my computer from communicating with the internet and to prevent any opportunity for an outside intrusion (such as malware) to occur.

Recently, I came across a nice utility, called InternetOff, that makes turning the internet “on” and “off” very easy, right from the system tray (which is typically located on the right side of the taskbar).

InternetOff

After installing InternetOff, a small icon, representing a globe, will appear in the tray. Simply click on the globe and click on “Turn off the internet”. When you want to turn the internet back “on”, click on the globe icon again, and you will be presented with several options to turn the internet “on”.  You can turn it “on” for 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, an hour; OR, just turn it “on” (permanently).

Automatically Get the Mouse Cursor Out Of The Way

March 29, 2012

You probably noticed that the past several days I have not posted much. This is due that I have been using my writing skills on another personal matter that has consumed, not only my time, but what brain cells I have left.

During the course of this personal writing venture, there were quite a few occasions where I had to swat the mouse pointer out of my view so that it would not distract me or change my focus. Afterwards, I started to wonder if there was an utility out there that would move the pointer out of the way for me (automatically)? In other words, I was looking for something that when I started to type, the cursor would move out of view and park itself.

Sure enough, I soon found my answer with Park Cursor Aside

Whenever you type on keyboard, the mouse cursor is automatically parked (moved) aside to a defined screen / active window position. This way your view of the input field is not blocked by the mouse cursor.

Right click on tray icon and select Settings, to define the parking position and other values.

Use Magical Jelly Bean To Recover Your Software Product Keys

February 20, 2012

I have drafted articles in the past which featured various utilities to use to recover your software product keys. To name a few there was LicenseCrawler, ProduKey (by NirSoft), AND SIW -System Information for Windows.  Today I found another one, called Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder, that you can add to this arsenal.

KeyFinder screenshot

The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install windows from your registry (plus over 300 other software products). It also has a community-updated configuration file that retrieves product keys for many other applications. Another feature is the ability to retrieve product keys from unbootable Windows installations.

There is nothing more frustrating than when you go to install software that you paid good money for and cannot find the product key to install that software. As a matter of fact, in the real world of computing, and I have helped many; most people fail to keep the product keys and in many cases cannot even locate the CD’s. It may be years, during the operation of your computer that you may need the CD’s and the product keys; therefore, GENERAL RULE OF THUMB —  Keep those CD’s and Product Keys together in one place so that you will have them available in the event a re-install is required.
