I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.6! I don't normally release new versions so close together, but an important issue was brought to my attention that couldn't wait until the next scheduled release date. This new version fixes a major issue with folder name matching when using the "include files filter". It should now work as expected, without skipping any folders. I also took this opportunity to include a couple of new features as well. The results list now shows each file's correct icon, instead of a generic icon. To make multiple-folder searches easier, there is now a "Browse & Append" button on the main window. If you use this button, the folder you select will be appended to your search path instead of replacing it.
If you would like to see the complete list of changes, please visit the FileSeek Change Log. I would encourage everyone to update to version 1.9.6 as soon as possible so that folder searching will start working as expected. Thanks everyone!

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.5! This release adds a few requested options, as well as fixing some minor interface glitches. The biggest change is the addition of an option to toggle sub-folder searching. Now you can choose whether to search only the selected folder, or the folder and all sub-folders. Also, the FileSeek window will now remember it's last position and state between uses. This should make it much easier for anyone who frequently opens and closes FileSeek and has to keep moving the window around. To see the complete list of changes, please visit the FileSeek Change Log. Thanks everyone!

DisplayFusion has been featured in a number of excellent YouTube videos, and I thought I would take some time today to highlight a few of them. This is not a complete list of all the videos about DisplayFusion, just a few randomly selected videos. I am not responsible for any of the content in these videos. Some of the videos are about older versions of DisplayFusion so the information may be a bit out of date, but I think they still have some useful tips. Enjoy!

I am very happy to announce the release of TrayStatus 1.1! This new version of TrayStatus fixes a few hard drive monitoring issues, and adds a handy Settings window, instead of editing an INI file by hand. Do you have a notebook or keyboard without a NumLock or CapsLock indicator light? Do you have a computer without a hard drive activity light? If so, then TrayStatus is for you. I recently purchased a notebook that had no indicator lights at all, and after a couple of weeks I got frustrated and created TrayStatus. TrayStatus can show you the following information in your taskbar's notification area (system tray):
If you need to show this information in your taskbar, download the new version of TrayStatus today!

I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.1.8! Despite this being a small point release, it is jam-packed with new features and bug fixes. There's something for everyone! The official DisplayFusion Change Log contains a long, boring list of things that have changed, so I'll do my best to summarize the most exciting things here.
There are a pile of new features:
What a party! Of course, a new release wouldn't be complete without a generous helping of bug fixes as well. Let's take a look at some of the more important fixes:
I would encourage everyone to update to the new version today. If you are already a DisplayFusion Pro user, you have probably already downloaded and installed the new update automatically, because DisplayFusion Pro can do awesome things like that.
If you are using the Free version of DisplayFusion, and would like to help support the future development of DisplayFusion, please consider purchasing your very own DisplayFusion Pro license. It helps cover the cost of web hosting, bandwidth, development/testing/support time along with purchasing all of the crazy hardware needed to test DisplayFusion in different configurations.
Thanks everyone, and I hope you continue to enjoy DisplayFusion!

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.4! This release is mostly a bug-fix release, and contains a number of important fixes. The biggest change is the ability to select multiple results items and use the Windows Context Menu, as long as they are in the same folder. Line numbers are no longer shown when using an IFilter search, as the line numbers returned by the IFilter handlers are unfortunately never correct. The last bug-fix allows OpenOffice documents to be properly searched using an IFilter search. For some reason OpenOffice doesn't correctly register it's IFilter components correctly, so a work-around was necessary.
I would also like to let everyone know that you can get settings for the "Open with Other Application" context menu option from here:
These settings allow you to open a search result item to a specific line number, once the "Open with Other Application" item is configured. This is very helpful for anyone working with source code files, or any other document type where being able to quickly open a document to a specific location is important.
I would encourage everyone to update to the latest version of FileSeek today. Thanks everyone!

After only 2 short weeks after the FileSeek 1.9.2 release I have decided to release a new version with a few minor changes. I received quite a bit of feedback regarding the changes to the file/folder name matching. In version 1.9.2 I added the ability to toggle file/folder name matches by query text or the "include files" filter. This added some long-needed and much requested flexibility, but it also added some complexity. I decided to put those options in the Settings window, not realizing how often people would need to toggle it. After some thought I have moved these options onto the main search window in the form of a dropdown list with 4 different options. This should make it easier for everyone to toggle these settings for each search, without adding too much interface clutter on the main window. I'd like to send out a big thanks to everyone who send me feedback and helped to design this new version. Thanks everyone!

I am very happy to announce the release of HashTools 1.3.1! This new version adds some extra options in the installer, like the ability to create desktop icons and create Windows context menu entries. It also adds full compatibility with Windows Vista and Windows 7, something that was long overdue. If you would like to see the full list of changes please visit the HashTools Change Log. I would encourage everyone who uses HashTools in Windows Vista and Windows 7 to update to the new version today. Thanks everyone!

I am very happy to announce the release of DisplayFusion 3.1.7! This new version brings a pile of changes and bug fixes along with it. It has more changes than any version since the main 3.1 release almost 6 months ago. It brings with it a completely overhauled Wallpaper window, a new Compatibility tab in the Settings window and more Context Menu options when right-clicking on a DisplayFusion Taskbar.
Here are some of the large new features:
There are some changes to existing features as well:
Of course, there are many important bug fixes as well:
Believe it or not, there are still dozens of other fixes and enhancements that made it into this release as well. If you would like to see the full list of changes, please visit the DisplayFusion Change Log. I would like to send out a huge Thank You to everyone who helped with this new version. From the hundreds of people who submitted bug reports and feature requests, to the dozens of beta testers in the DisplayFusion Forum, to the dozens of people who contribute to one of DisplayFusion's 25 different language translations. This new version wouldn't have been possible without you!
Some of the new features are for DisplayFusion Pro users only, like the application window edge snapping. If you are currently a DisplayFusion Free user and would like to help support this application, I would encourage you to check out what the Pro version has to offer. With Multi-Monitor Taskbars, random wallpaper changers, and enhanced TitleBar Button and HotKey support, the $25 Pro version is worth every penny. But, of course, I'm biased so why not try it out for free with a 30 day trial license.
I would encourage everyone to update to the new version today to take advantage of the increased performance, stability and new features. Thanks everyone!

I am very happy to announce the release of FileSeek 1.9.2! This release fixes a few long-standing issues, and adds some expanded search options. You can now treat your search query as a complete string (like all previous versions) or you can treat the query as words and find files that match any or all words. This new ability adds some much needed flexibility when searching files for multiple text strings. Another new addition is the "Search" tab in the Settings window. This adds a handful of new settings for configuring what will appear in the search results. For example, you can have filename matches appear that match the text query or the "include files" filter, or both. Previously, both matches were shown for filenames with no way to configure this. Here are a few more changes in this release:
You can see the complete history of changes in the FileSeek Change Log. Thank you to everyone who submitted bug reports and helped to test this new release. Thanks everyone!
