Introducing interesting software

This section includes a more detailed introduction of software that you can install or run from a hard disk or removable disk device. We focus on free Windows programs.

DesktopSnowOK: Virtual (not only) snow on your computer

Although most of our territory has until recently been more or less overdue summer weather, with the coming holidays it is good to think of inducing the right atmosphere. And it can also include snowfall. If we can’t afford snow outside, at least a virtual version can be used. The free application DesktopSnowOK offers interesting possibilities in this respect.

DesktopSnowOK specializes in creating “snowfall” on your computer. It does not have to go directly about the snowflakes. We will have several textures, respectively. objects.

For example, it can be falling leaves, flowers or stars. The list is quite shallow. We can select which object or texture to use directly in the user interface. Custom textures can also be added. Although a bit awkward, dragging and dropping images using drag-and-drop into the application window.

In addition, there are additional settings to adjust the “snowfall” or “snowfall”. we will adjust to our liking. Whether it is the choice of falling objects, the level of transparency and the rate of falling.

Additional settings include, for example, enabling object rotation and random object size – so not all flakes look the same. We can also choose the “snow” algorithm.

Of course there is also the possibility of short-term deactivation of snow. Although overall, the application does not take up a lot of system resources, sometimes “snowfall” can be counterproductive – especially if we need to use all the resources of a computer or focus on a particular task.

The application itself does not require installation and several language localizations are available.

OpenOffice 4.1.6

These days, the OpenOffice comprehensive office suite has also been updated. In addition to LibreOffice (which is better supported), this is another interesting and well-equipped alternative for Microsoft Office. In addition, it supports various platforms, including Linux. Brings a text editor, spreadsheet, presentation, drawing, and so on.

PrivaZer 3.0.57

The application is one of the helpers who remove “redundant” files from the disk (such as old backups or history) while helping to protect our privacy by eliminating device traces. PrivaZer delivers in-depth cleaning, even with removable drives – such as USB keys. The new version enhances the cleaning of Chrome cookies.
