Getting Power of PMW System Menu on Windows 7

Windows 7 has introduced the concept of Jump list and removed the old system menu.
But  you can get the old standard system menu (XP, Vista style) using Rammichael's
7 Taskbar tweaker

Please note that right clicking on title bar of any application, and
right click on taskbar thumbnail preview still gives the old style system menu with PMW menu injected ;).

I hope that in next version of PMW I will be able to give following two options to Windows 7 users.
1.  Inject PMW system menu into Jump list.
2. Allow user to disable Jump list and  show standard system menu.

Stay tuned. Sphere: Related Content

PMW next version under construction...

Last couple of weekends, I am working on next version of PMW.
Done with the refactoring and now trying to internationalize it.
Once I am done with Internationalization will ask PMW users to provide
me the all PMW Strings ( Kill, Hide me, Hide Others, etc) in their native language,
So i can ship PMW 's next version i nyour language.

As per current plan ( which may change), user would be able to add any new language
by adding a new language file into [PMW installation directory]\languages\
Format of that file will be quite simple (XML, Unicode 16 ), user can actually make a copy of
English.xml as German.xml and edit it. and PMW will recorgnize that.

User would be able to change the Language at runtime, from
PMW Tray context menu->Language menu.

Hope this intended workflow will work.

New version of Custom-Right-Click

New version of Custom-Right-Click is being released.

What does new version include?
With eariler version once you have trapped the right-click event and got rid off Flash-Context-Menu, It wasn't (easily) possible to stop trapping the right-click event and restore the Flash-Context-Menu.

Now with this version you can trap right-click event or restore default behaviour anytime
while your SWF movie is playing.

Process Manager for Windows (Launched on eve of Diwali 2008)

It has always been a pain to use applications like MS Word, MS Outlook, MS Excel, Matlab, Delphi, Mozilla, Image editing s/w and video editing s/w. They take huge memory... they eat up half of your CPU ... and when you wanna close them, then also they take huge time ... to get rid off all these...
I have developed this small utility.... so now ... you can just right click on any application in taskbar and say "Kill"...
Also if you wanna increase/decrease the priority of any application, then all you have to do is just one click on the application in the taskbar and say increase/decrease priority...
I hope public will like it and encourage me to add more features...
