Although this application hides currently opened programs on your computer, it isn't always reliable. Silent BossKey lists all the opened programs in your taskbar on its standard interface. You'll have to select the programs you'd like hidden by the user-definable hot key and move them to the right side of BossKey's dual-side window. Since comparable programs allow you to select applications that will be hidden from start-up by a set hot-key combination, the constant configuration of this software is a mark against it. We also find its boss-key combos and boss-mouse feature aren't always reliable in a pinch; sometimes they work during testing, sometimes they don't. In all fairness, the program works, just not as well as other competitive applications like it.
