Moo0 Right Clicker Enhances Your Context (Right Click) Menu

Posted by Rich On December - 24 - 2009
Windows Guides’ Rating Compatible with
1 Star1 Star1 Star1 StarHalf Star4.5 out of 5 Windows 7Windows VistaWindows XP


PROS: This program works well and I didn’t find any bugs at all. My screenshots below show what kind of a difference can be made by using this software.

CONS: Untested on 64-bit (I didn’t try it as my only 64-bit machine is not for testing–it needs to be up 24/7.) Price is a little high, but still great value if you have a need to organize your context menu.

VERDICT: This program does what it says on the box: it organizes your right-click menu and helps you access what you need with ease. The Pro version is reasonably priced, although $20 is always a sweet spot for me with tools like this. I recommend the pro version in support of the developers who’ve worked hard to make this great tool.

PRICE: Free (Pro $26.)

Windows 7 Media Center Customization Handbook Released

Posted by Rich On November - 17 - 2009

Windows 7 Media Center Customization HandbookRSVR85 and I got together about a month ago and put together the Windows 7 Media Center Customization Handbook. RSVR85 took his previous Windows 7 Media Center Guides, updated them, and made them even easier to follow. I just put everything together and now it’s online and ready for your reading pleasure.

I’d like to thank RSVR85 for his hard work. This book is fantastic and I can’t wait to update my Media Center PC to Windows 7 so I can put these hacks into effect. His original forum post on the topic helped me customize Windows Vista’s Media Center (and this handbook will work, mostly, for Windows Vista Media Center.)
