Plancoin

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

This free application quickly hides specified windows with the press of a hot key, just don't set your expectations too high. Plancoin is very basic and simple to use. Its minimal features allow you to hide and reveal specified windows and to launch its elementary interface.

While we like the fact you can define specific windows by keywords to automatically hide with a user-defined hot key, the program should include a hide-all button in case the user doesn't want to constantly go in and insert sentences. Frankly speaking, Plancoin works, just not as efficiently as competitive applications in this category.

Developer's Description

Plancoin allows you to hide selected windows in one keypress. It lets you set up two hot keys: one to hide the windows and show them back, and one to show the Plancoin settings window. The program then runs in the background and responds to the hot keys. To determine which windows must be hidden, you have to set up a list of sentences. In the include mode, every window whose title contains one of the sentences will be hidden.

This mode is the default one. In the exclude mode, every window whose title does not contain any of the sentences will be hidden. As Plancoin needs to run in the background all the time, it has been designed to use as few system resources as possible. Version 0.2 adds ability to see the dialog settings from the first instance.
