It may not offer an extensive feature set, but this tiny application lets you quickly hide open windows. WinBoss offers a basic interface to view or modify the hot key for hiding the currently active window or all windows. The program's system-tray icon is designed to resemble the Task Manager's CPU-monitor icon for even more privacy. WinBoss performed well in testing and made hiding programs a breeze. Hidden items can't be detected through Alt Tab and won't be displayed in Task Manager. Just click the icon to quickly and easily restore windows. WinBoss works well and will suit any user who wants an effective way to hide his or her work from prying eyes and, best of all, it's offered free of charge.
