ExeProperties

Program: ExeProperties Version:1.1
Author: ExtraBit Software
Website: [ http://www.extrabit.com/exeproperties/ ]
Download: [ 640 Kb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10
Description: EXE files contain the program code for Windows applications and programs. These may load DLL (Dynamic Link Library) files that contain additional program code. When an EXE or DLL is built, it will either contain 32-bit code or 64-bit code. 32-bit code can run on any processor, but 64-bit code requires a 64-bit processor and a 64-bit version of Windows. However, Windows does not provide any built-in way to determine if an EXE or DLL is 32-bit or 64-bit. This is where ExeProperties comes to the rescue! It is really easy to use, once installed it extends the built-in Windows File Explorer by adding an additional tab to the properties panel that shows extended properties for EXE and DLL files. To view these extended properties, right click on an EXE or DLL file in Windows File Explorer, and select Properties from the context menu. The additional tab added by ExeProperties is called Exe/Dll Info. Select this tab to view the extended properties.

PlainTextClipboard

Program: PlainTextClipboard Version:1.0
Author: ExtraBit Software
Website: [ http://www.extrabit.com/plaintextclipboard/ ]
Download: [ 336 Kb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10
Description: PlainTextClipboard is a very simple program that takes any formatted text it finds on the clipboard and replaces it with unformatted text. This is useful for those situations where you want to paste text and have it formatted like the text where you are pasting instead of keeping the original formatting. Some applications provide an alternative paste command that lets you treat any pasted text as unformatted. For example, the Thunderbird mail client provides a Paste Without Formatting menu command. Microsoft Word provides a Paste Special menu command that brings up a list of options, one of which is to treat the pasted text as Unformatted Text. However, even when using applications that do provide such commands, it is almost always quicker to just invoke PlainTextClipboard to convert the text and then use the normal paste command, especially if you use the CTRL+ALT+T keyboard shortcut that is set up when PlainTextClipboard is installed. If you run PlainTextClipboard when there is no formatted text on the clipboard, it will simply do nothing.
