Free Windows Applications


Perhaps you find something useful here, but be aware that these programs are quite old, mostly. This is an archive.
The little programs on this page are all free, but I cannot guarantee compatibility with Windows Vista or Windows 7 / 8 and there will be no more updates - use at your own risk. Microsoft .Net Framework Version 2.0 is required for some programs.

Ear Test Ear Test / Hearing Test
The program is designed to give you a quick test of your ear's capabilities to hear all frequencies of the audible spectrum, separately for each ear. You can measure with good accuracy up to which frequency you can hear and compare your result with those of your friends and family. The test result is drawn as a graphcal chart.

The upper frequency limit of the human ears is strongly dependent on a person's age. A child can usually hear frequencies of up to 20,000 Hz (oscillations per second), while for an old person it can be as low as 5,000 Hz and even lower. For a middle-aged person (40 years), a frequency of 14,000 Hz is an average value. Some people can have gaps in their hearing spectrum, due to inner ear injuries - this can also be checked. Due to the lack of calibration, this program cannot replace a medical hearing test. Please be careful when using it with headphones.

This program is designed to scroll any number of text items in a draggable and resizable window on your desktop, in a horizontal or vertical direction.

Using the mouse wheel, you can manually scroll the messages back and forth.

Multi Clipboard Multi Clipboard
With Multi Clipboard you have access to nine clipboard texts (slots), which you can select either via mouseclick when the program window is active, or via Hotkey "Ctrl + NUMPAD 1.. 9", even if the program is inactive or minimized to the system tray. This copies the selected slot to the Windows clipboard, from which you can paste it into your active application (for instance with Ctrl + V). The hotkey "Ctrl + NUMPAD 0" hides or shows the program window, depending on the previous state. If nine slots are not enough and you need more, you can change to another of three available files.
