I just came across 2 free tools that I have immediately begun using a ton. Maybe you will find them helpful…
For a Gmail or Yahoo user, this is a must. This allows you to click on any email link and it will put an email in your Gmail or Yahoo draft folder. You can also right click on a file in Windows Explorer and choose send to mail recipient. It will also put an email in your draft folder with the file attached. It basically sets your default email software as Google or Yahoo. Pretty cool.
There are probably many free screen grab tools, but I have found this one really easy and straight forward. You can grab your whole screen, just an active window, or you can drag a rectangle to grab any portion of your screen. You can instantly turn these grabs into a bmp, gif, jpg, or send it to your clipboard. No frills, no extra fluff, it does what it says well. Perfect!
Gotta love free stuff!
