Editors' Review

Le Dimmer helps you stay focused on the task at hand by dimming all windows except the one you're actively working in. This can help you avoid distractions like seeing e-mails pop up in the background so you can increase your productivity and get your work done faster. There are multiple options for dimming, making this app an efficient way to manage your desktop distractions.

When you install Le Dimmer, it starts running immediately and automatically dims all windows except the one you're currently working in. If you'd like to undo the dimming at any time, you can access the app from the taskbar in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. To make another window your focus, just click on it as you normally would to move it to the top. The previous window you were working in will dim and then the new window will become clear. It is also possible to adjust the maximum window size allowed and set the degree of transparency on a scale from 0 to 225, with a default setting of 150.

The interface of Le Dimmer is about as streamlined as it gets, with options in the pop-up menu for About and Quit. But the app works well, it's free, and it's a useful tool for anyone who has trouble staying focused while working on the computer.

"Don't download this from CNET."

May 24, 2013  |  By AcidSnow

 |  Version: Le Dimmer 1.0.0.4

Pros

None, because CNET installed 3 other programs, one of which gave me random "pop up windows" when switching websites.

Cons

CNET wants you to download this, so they can farm out extra programs that you didn't ask for, and also get ad revenue from the background stuff that gets installed.

Summary

This is the second time I've used CNET to download something, and both times I've had issues with secondary programs being installed (even after I UNCKECK multiple boxes). I will never use or recommend CNET's download service ever again.

"If you are using Windows 8 then this is must have app."

May 13, 2013  |  By saurabh_kulkarni

 |  Version: Le Dimmer 1.0.0.4

Pros

- Very useful in Windows 8 (as drop shadows are only 1px thick)
- Darkens everything on the screen except the currently focused window
- it works perfectly for me compare to Ghoster

Cons

- No option to enable at Windows Start up (but, "Start Menu\Programs\Startup\" works fine)
