vtm is a windowed multi-user environment for unlimited number of terminals. In other words this is an infinite 2-D space of terminal windows. To render its interface, vtm needs a text console -- be it a terminal emulator, Windows Command Prompt, or a Linux VGA Console. See Tested Terminals for details.
vtm is just a single executable file without any third party dependencies.
vtm renders itself at 60 frames per second into its own internal buffers. Output to the text console occurs only when the console is ready to receive the next frame. All pending frames are merged for smooth running even on non-accelerated text consoles.
vtm's multi-user architecture allows any number of participants to directly connect to the environment for collaboration. Each environment session is identified by an operating system's named pipe that serves as a gateway for users. To connect, the user just need to run vtm in their text console, either locally or remotely via SSH. See the command line options for details.
Fan Control is a highly focused fan controlling software for Windows. No installation required. Low on resources, high on power.
Fan Control has extensive support for a variety of motherboards, GPUs, and other hardware, like AIOs. Say goodbye to the "silo" approach of using multiple softwares to control your different fans. Have all of them controlled by a single smart entity, and start thinking about cooling and noise as a system-wide concern. Fan Control has ALL the parameters. Response time, hysteresis, hysteresis direction, step up, step down... Fine tune to your heart's desire. Control your fan's start and stopping logic, for smooth 0 RPM operation.
The Open Hardware Monitor is a free open source software that monitors temperature sensors, fan speeds, voltages, load and clock speeds of a computer.
The CPU temperature can be monitored by reading the core temperature sensors of Intel and AMD processors. The sensors of ATI and Nvidia video cards as well as SMART hard drive temperature can be displayed. The monitored values can be displayed in the main window, in a customizable desktop gadget, or in the system tray. The free Open Hardware Monitor software runs on 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 and any x86 based Linux operating systems without installation.
To install just unpack the zip archive and run OpenHardwareMonitor.exe with Administrator rights. Without Administrator rights most hardware sensors are not accessible.
This Utility is a compilation of Windows tasks I perform on each Windows system I use. It is meant to streamline installs, debloat with tweaks, troubleshoot with config, and fix Windows updates.
Requires you to launch PowerShell or Windows Terminal As ADMINISTRATOR! The recommended way is to right-click on the start menu and select (PowerShell As Admin Windows 10 - Windows Terminal As Admin Windows 11)
Hard Disk Sentinel is a multi-OS SSD and HDD monitoring and analysis software. Its goal is to find, test, diagnose and repair hard disk drive problems, report and display SSD and HDD health, performance degradations and failures. Hard Disk Sentinel gives complete textual description, tips and displays/reports the most comprehensive information about the hard disks and solid state disks inside the computer and in external enclosures. Many different alerts and report options are available to ensure maximum safety of your valuable data.
No need to use separate tools to verify internal hard disks, external hard disks, SSDs, hybrid disk drives (SSHD), disks in RAID arrays and Network Attached Storage drives as these are all included in a single software. In addition Hard Disk Sentinel Pro detects and displays status and SMART information about LTO tape drives and appropriate industrial (micro) SD cards and eMMC devices too.
Hiren’s BootCD PE (Preinstallation Environment) is a restored edition of Hiren’s BootCD based on Windows 10 PE x64. Since there are no official updates after November 2012, PE version is being developed by Hiren’s BootCD fans. It contains the fewest but best free tools.

With the useful tools inside of the CD, you can fix many problems related to your computer. It does not contain any pirated software, it contains only free and legal software.
After boot, PE version tries to install drivers like graphics, sound, wireless and ethernet card for your hardware. So that you can connect to a WIFI or Ethernet network. Please Contact Us with your hardware model if your WIFI or Ethernet card is not recognized by the PE version. We will try to add the required drivers in the new releases.
Busybox ported to Windows. Can be compiled for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows. Includes shells. Can be cross-compiled from a Linux box. Make sure that you look at the README.md file, not the regular README for build documentation.
This guide is meant for advanced users who wants to get rid off Windows 11's bloatware and telemetry. Last tested on Windows 11 22000.376. Gets rid of bloatware. Disables most of the telemetry. Better performance. Optimizes Windows 11 for gaming as well as productivity. Strips Windows 11 to barebones (In Advanced removal below). Unfortunately, it also breaks Sysprep and the sfc/scannow commands.
A collection of keyboard shortcuts for Mac apps, Windows programs, and websites.
The Capsulecorp Pentest is a small virtual network managed by Vagrant and Ansible. It contains five virtual machines, including one Linux attacking system running Xubuntu and 4 Windows 2019 servers configured with various vulnerable services. This project can be used to learn network penetration testing as a stand-alone environment but is ultimatly designed to complement my book The Art of Network Penetration Testing.
A site that has a rather large collection of screenshots of classic desktops and windows.
Text mode window environment. A "retro" program for embedded or remote systems, that doubles as X11 terminal and text-mode equivalent of VNC server. It's a serious oversimplification, but think text-mode X, or maybe something like Desqview for DOS. Mouse support, window manager, terminal emulator and networked clients, all inside a text display.
A free-as-in-beer and free-as-in-freedom (GPLv2), open source screen reader for Microsoft Windows. It is developed by NV Access in collaboration with a global community of contributors. Specifically designed because most screen readers are incredibly expensive. Includes support and training materials for both sighted and sight-impaired people. Has the usual heavy hitters funding the project.
