Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This application may not look like much, but it does let you instantly hide windows. Mr. Hyde's drab but functional interface is divided into three sections. In the first, you can change the default hot keys to hide windows and call up the program's control panel. In the second, you can add items you want the program to hide by class or title. Lastly, you can designate windows the program should never hide. Mr. Hyde doesn't offer an option to hide all active windows, a feature found in other programs, but we like its simplicity and it worked flawlessly in testing. The program nicely runs in the background and doesn't show in the taskbar or in Task Manager's Applications tab, though it does appear in the Process tab. Though its scope may be limited, this freeware app can help any user manage active windows.
