WindowsComments Off on Creating animated GIFs from screenshots
I have posted two animated GIFs lately to show features of GExperts or the popup menu entry for Windows Defender.
These GIFs were created using ScreenToGif which is an open source tool written by Nike S. Manarin. One feature of it that I particularly like is that it is a "Portable App", that is, it works without needing an installer.
Windows, Windows 8.1Comments Off on Add a “Scan with Windows Defender” context menu to any folder or file
Windows Defender is the virus scan tool that is included with Windows 8 and later. While it provides basic security it does not have any of the convenience functions that other virus scanners have. In particular I miss a context menu option to scan a file or folder.
Both open a console window for the console version of Windows Defender to run. That’s a bit ugly but we aren’t in this for a design award, are we?
To add these files to the registry just double click them. Windows will warn you about possible threads. It’s a good idea to read through files like these before double clicking. Maybe I am just trying to hack your computer? 😉
It works for me on Windows 8.1, but it should also work on other Windows versions like 10.
