Judy's TenKey is a three-in-one desktop calculator that has some interesting extras. It can be a standard full-function calculator, an adding machine, or a scientific calculator. A scrolling tape shows you just where you are in a running tally of calculations and automatically recalculates totals when you change something; multiple undos extricate you when you change something you shouldn't have. You can customize the look, add sound, and more.
An optional demo walks new users through the many features and settings Judy's TenKey offers. It starts by explaining how to hide the onscreen number pad, since most users enter digits directly via their keyboard. This also explains the process for customizing your calculator by displaying only those functions and features you need. The demo also configures the tape and shows how to make corrections, reuse totals, paste numbers, calculate statistics and averages, and more. The Configure menu accesses numerous additional settings, and there's a Help file for further explanation than the demo offers, though we found the demo plenty thorough. One extra that few other calculators offer is financial calculation capability via a simple dialog. Another is a zero-install option that lets you use Judy's TenKey from a flash drive or other portable device. Black and red numerals, favorite-spot memory, and other nice touches make it a pleasure to calculate with.
Judy's TenKey adds up to one of the most comprehensive aftermarket Windows desktop calculator we've seen, not to mention among the easiest to use and most affordable. We feel you can count on it.Editor's note: This is a review of the full version of Judy's TenKey 5.02. The trial version is limited to 30 days trial only.
