ned Productions – StickyFront2

by . Last updated .

StickyFront is a utility which enhances and modifies the Win32 user interface to make it quicker and easier to use. The alterations include:
  • Ability to quickly stick and unstick windows to the front
  • Much quicker access to the main window menu (as a context menu)
  • Suppression of modal dialog boxes - now you can alter windows disabled by dialogs!
  • Extension of file drag & drop allowing loading and saving files to be done entirely by drag & drop!

StickyFront has been hand-crafted in C++ directly using the Win32 API for speed and size - the executable is only 24Kb and the patch DLL is only 12Kb! The code is additionally exceptionally robust with excellent error handling, assuring you that if anything does go wrong during the patching process that all errors will be handled gracefully.

System requirements:

  • Any Win32 platform (eg; Microsoft Windows 95, 98, ME, NT 4 or 2000). NT 3.5 should provide limited functionality.
  • A Windows-supported pointing device (eg; mouse, trackerball)

Recent happenings:

  • Added 14th December 2000:
    It's still being tested folks ...

Recent issues:

  • Added 14th December 2000:
    We're still getting occasional cases of applications dying. This is related to the anti-modal feature, turning it off prevents the problem.

    Additionally, turning off anti-modal or quitting the program while anti-modal is in effect causes some very nasty problems. Hopefully it'll be fixed prior to release.

Download the demo:

The demonstration version of the utility is complete in every way except that:

  • The utility ceases operation after two hours and displays an annoying message. You can run it again if you want for another two hours.

This is intended to give you a good idea of what the utility is like and how much better Win32 is when using it but still encouraging you to pay for a registered copy if you like it.
