Editors' reviewThis program allows users to take command of their open applications by hiding them with a quick mouse click or a few strokes of the keyboard, but preferences should be set to ensure ease of use. AceHide is a simple icon docked in the system tray which can be either clicked or right-clicked to perform a set of tasks. By default, clicking once on the icon will hide any opened windows. Clicking again will bring those windows back into view. Users can right-click to bring up a menu with several options, preferences, and a help file. By customizing the preferences, users can set hot keys and change settings to have more control over what the program does. The program also features password protection, prompting the user to enter a password before showing a window. AceHide uses minimal system resources and will help anyone manage a cluttered desktop. We recommend this tool to any user who wants to maximize a computer's desktop space.
You find yourself on your office computer reading something enjoyable, writing a personal letter, or simply surfing the web. All of a sudden your boss walks in. You have a few options at this point: 1) You can try to close each application and then continually confirm that you do not need to save the data. 2) You can quickly press the reset key on your computer and then spend a great deal of time trying to restore working applications which were active before the reboot. You can hide your window(s) by pressing a hotkey and, when your boss leaves, you can make the window(s) visible again by pressing the hotkey.
