/g/ shilled me SumatraPDF and Cryptomator and I love both programs.
SumatraPDF is a superfast and minimalistic PDF reader, Cryptomator is perfect for protecting your files stored in the cloud.

Sumatra is pretty trash, it's just a wasted megabyte that ninite baits people into installing. If you open a lot of PDFs it's trash because it doesn't implement many features. If you don't open a lot of PDFs your browser's shitty renderer is just fine.

Adobe's PDF reader sucks because it doesn't have an option to ignore the extremely annoying behavior of some PDFs where clicking on a bookmark will reset your zoom level, if Sumatra can't do this then that's a strike against it

And here's your (You):
SumatraPDF is really fast at viewing (actually "looking at") PDFs. Sadly it fails miserably at searching trough documents, printing them or extracting any content (passively so drop your "muh not an editor" argument).
Like said before every web browser renders PDF as good as Sumatra.

Tl;Dr sumatrapdf it's good for viewing pizza menus.

It's supposed to hide running programs, not minimize it to a tray. It's not supposed to be intuitive so the persons you're trying to hide shit from cannot easily check it out.

It still plays everything great, you donut. Start your smear campaign when you actually find a video it can't run.

>> No.65849535

So your benchmark for being worth shilling is "it plays video files"?
I still have MPC-HC installed but it doesnt support scaling properly, and its falling further out of date. If someone doesnt already use it there is no point in starting now when alternatives being maintained exist. (mpv, vlc, MPC-BE are all decent choices and living)

Not this guy but mine pretty much is. I don't sperg over porn player.
MPC has the buttons to play previous/next file in directory. MPV and VLC don't, PotPlayer has this function but randomly fails to load files in some directories.
I may check this out but your arguments are stupid an your scaling problem is completely non relevant to me.

I suggest that you give a try for google docs. I did my entire graduation using google docs (was mad with both open office and libre office) and it's pretty good. By far the ability of share a document with your pals and edit at the same time is a pro, and being able to access it from everywhere is nice too (i did more things in my work than in my home)

DontSleep - Blocks windows from dropping into screensaver, shutting off the monitor, or restarting. Handy when you're watching the progress of a print from the couch while watching TV.

Process Hacker - Edgy-sounding name, but it's basically ProcessExplorer on steroids. Open source.

Duplicati - Duplicity-based backup system for windows. Still in beta.

ConEmu - Tabbed console emulator for Windows.

Chocolatey - Package manager for windows, has most free programs.

DisplayFusion - Not free, but recommended for multiple monitor setups. Extends statusbar and adds hotkeys, fixes some awkwardness.

Rapid Environment Editor - Great for editing PATH and other env vars.

WinDirStat - See what's sucking up HDD space.

I like Xnview since it's very similar to the old Windows XP/7 photo viewer (which was *dramatically* superior to the shit-awful one built into Windows 10) but there are quite a few things that are just stupid or don't work.

>don't save settings

That said, the "Display Color Information" tool (ctrl+shift+i) is super useful, I use it all the time.
