Right Click Enhancer – Take control of your mouse

right-click-disableI remember my first experience using a mouse, back in the day. I was tutoring word processing students at Oakland University in Rochester, MI in a Mac lab.  90% of all the troubleshooting we did back then involved 2 things – don’t hit return at the end of every line of text (people were too used to hitting the carriage return on a type writer), and most verbal exchanges often began with, “OK, now, take your mouse and move it over to…”  That was in 1984, almost 30 years later, we’re still tethered to these magical pointing devices, and in order to get a better handle on how you work with them, cool utilities like Right Click Enhancer can make working with a mouse on a Windows box a lot easier.

Right Click Enhancer allows you to control the right click, or context menu everyone uses. With it, you can edit your right click menu, customizing it to give you the options you need. Right Click Enhancer consists of seven tools to manage your context menu.

Sometimes your PC desktop is cluttered with lots of shortcuts. These issue is easily solved by the Right Click Shortcuts Creator tool. It allows you to add applications, files and folder shortcuts to your right click context menu. If need be, you can also create sub menus if you have Windows 7 or Windows 8. You can add applications, files and folder shortcuts to these sub menus, too.

You can add command line arguments to the application shortcuts as well as edit previously added shortcuts and sub menus with ease. Regardless of how much you customize your context menus, your PC’s performance will not be affected.

Right Click Tweaker allows you to add useful functions to your right click context menu. With it, you can add functions that help save time by enhancing the common tasks found on your context menu, like copying or moving files, renaming files and accessing admin options.

Right Click Tweaker is a great utility to have and one that most users who find it will register, in my opinion.  The app is slightly overpriced at $10 USD, but not greatly so.  Depending on the level of customization you take and the OS you have on your PC (XP vs. Win7/8), you should easily be able to justify the expense.

The app’s Win7 God Mode brings all of Windows 7 customizations together in one place and places it clearly atop my short list of must have applications for my Windows 7 PC.

Google I/O – The Cool Stuff: Part 2

A lot of cool stuff came out of Google I/O last week. Let’s take a quick look at some of them in this sweet two-part series.

 

IOGoogle I/O is Google’s big annual developer bash. Like Microsoft Build and Apple’s WWDC, Google I/O is designed to showcase Google’s latest goodies and achievements. The idea is to attract new developers to use the new features and functionality that will in turn attract more consumer and enterprise customers to the Google side of the mobile world.

This year, Google rolled out a number of new developments in both the desktop and mobile platform spaces. Over the next couple of days, I’m going to highlight some interesting developments from both areas and try to show you where you might find value for yourself. Today, we’re going to concentrate on mobile.

 

Mobile Developments

 

Galaxy S4 with Stock Android
Google has chosen the latest Samsun Galaxy S phone, as its Nexus phone and will offer a version of the S4 with a vanilla version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The phone is scheduled to cost a steep $649 for an unlocked version of the device which should work on any GSM carrier.

Enhanced Google Maps
Google Maps has pretty much set the standard for a maps on demand GPS solution, at least in the Android part of the world. If you have an Android device, you have Google Maps; and as long as you live in an area with decent cell coverage, there’s no need to look for or use any other navigation solution.

As part of I/O, Google announced that it will be rolling out updates to maps that make searching larger maps more personal. Using technology that powers Google Now, Maps learns what your searching for and future results will get better the more it’s used.

Auto Enhance
Most people use point and shoot cameras to take digital photos vs. those that use DSLR’s. Most of those point and shoot cameras are actually cellphones. Digital camera technology has come a long way in the past few years with many cellphone camera specs rivaling those of dedicated point and shoot models. Your cellphone is most always with you , too.

Google is introducing Auto Enhance, a tool that offers users a way to improve brightness, contrast, saturation, structure, noise, focus and a number of other photo attributes automatically. The tool allows you to upload photos and to open a light box to see what Google improved for you.

Google+ Hangouts App
Google+ Hangouts offer members a virtual gathering place where they can chat, discuss and congregate with other members. Hangouts are often used for podcasting and live shows, sharing files and photos; but are also used for collaborative work.

Google has announced the release of a standalone application for Hangouts that works across Android, iOS and the desktop. Gmail users can now replace GChat with Hangouts. All they have to do is click the “Try it out” link on their chat lists.

Google+ Redesign
Google+ is the Google’s contribution to social networking; and its recently been updated with 41 new features, including design elements, updates to Hangouts, photo editing tools, additional storage, etc. While I’m certain that the Google+ mobile app has been updated, you can best see all of the design changes and feature editions on the desktop. If you haven’t seen Google+ lately, you need to check it out.

The one big disappointment out of the Google I/O keynote was the lack of a new Android OS or Chrome OS announcement. Perhaps Google is taking the time to delay a new version of either OS to address fragmentation and symmetry issues. This would be a GREAT idea in my opinion. The many different flavors of Android available and in use today are issues that Google needs to address.

At some point, Google will want to retire some versions and insure that those that can update do. This is going to be challenging, though, as many mobile carriers have control of what’s updated on what devices on their networks.
