    Hi lads and ladies,

    I am an olde member from the days this site was known as www.xp-erience.org

    Now in those olde days, there used to be a "Powertoys" download in the appropriate section that included all those little nifty tools available at the M$ website and some more, like a background switcher, etc.

    It has dissappeared!

    So I was wondering if the siteOP(s) would like to see it reappear in that section since M$ seems not to make available some of teh powertoys anymore...

    email me to talk about it!

    Hi all,
    I have created a complete collection of the Microsoft Powertoys for Windows XP, which I created from scratch. Here are the latest versions of all the official Powertoys, as well as the cancelled Powertoys all in one collective file like the originals were.

    I created this file because I hated installing each Powertoy separately, this file is just over 1MB, M$'s separate install files are more than 5MB, plus it has all the cancelled Powertoys which I like.

    Included Official Powertoys are:-
    ---------------------------------
    Alt-Tab Replacement
    CD Slide Show Generator
    HTML Slide Show Wizard
    Image Resizer
    Open Command Window Here
    Power Calculator
    Taskbar Magnifier
    Tweak UI
    Virtual Desktop Manager
    Webcam Timershot

    Included Cancelled Powertoys are:-
    ----------------------------------
    Background Switcher
    Internet Explorer Find
    ISO Image Burner
    Shell Audio Player
    Super-Fast User Switcher


    If you want the file let me know.

    The first Powertoy set is still available from
    http://www.chip.de/downloads_updates/downloads_updates_8607673.html
    Btw the Superfast User Switcher powertoy never worked very well for me.


    The site is in German. Go to "Low speed download", on the next page click "Weiter zum Download von Powertoys for Win XP ", then finally on the third page "CHIP-Online-Download-Server". Direct link didn't work.

    There are no language versions of Powertoys. They are always in English. Since they work in my German version they should work in your Spanish version, too. :)

    Don't know why MS says that. Actually never noticed this statement before. I have most of the Powertoys installed, from the actual set, some of the first set, even one of the Win 95 Powertoys. All work without problems.
