Throughout my professional life, I’ve favored multi-monitor setups, whether homogeneous or heterogeneous (although I naturally favor homogeneous ones, but you cannot always have that luxury). They give you more screen area to play with, make organization of work easier and considerably speed up tasks (personal experience here). However, for most people, multi-monitor setups imply having two display devices attached to a single PC, which is generally easy to manage. Things start getting complicated when you have perhaps three or more displays attached with a single PC, meaning that you get to control all of the extra desktop space with a single keyboard and mouse. One annoyance that such setups present is the excessive mouse movement required to travel/navigate across the multiple desktops. Multi Monitor Mouse (M3)
is a very small tool that allows your mouse pointer to quickly jump across various monitors, making the whole experience considerably faster.

Or perhaps you may have a slow download or long installation going on, that you may want to keep a tab on, but the constant back and forth movement between windows is just not worth the effort. What do you do? One solution might be to use the thumbnail preview feature that Windows 7 provides, but in all honestly, the thumbnails are, as the name implies, thumbnails, and hence, too small to be of any real use. Another might be to go looking for an alternative solution that would help you get out of the fix. Well, we have the solution.
This is a small tip to help users in finding out which version of .NET Framework is installed on their system, complete with service pack information. DNVC

A few days back I covered a tool named Google Translate Client
that translates any text to any other language instantly. But what if you want to translate a word and then find it’s meaning? Or perhaps, you simply want to research more about it on Wikipedia?
is a free portable tool for Windows that is a combination of four important online services, Google Dictionary, Translate, Suggest, and Wikipedia. In other words, it is also a multilingual dictionary.
After you have installed the tool, it will show an icon in the system tray. Right-click the system tray icon and select Options. Now under Dictionary+Translation, select the language that you commonly use to translate and click OK.
