Ran this a few times and works exceptionally well. Great stuff Joe - very helpful indeed.

One feature suggestion for a possible future revision - include a column for "Date Published" - Possible? :)

Thanks for your work Joe - fantastic stuff.

Endorsed!

Edit: Oh and while I have your ear, how about a column for "Number of comments" too?  Sorry, you may have opened up a huge can of worms here. You know how I can get when I like one of your creations lol ;)

Hi Andrew,

> works exceptionally well

Glad to hear it!

> Great stuff Joe - very helpful indeed.

Thanks for the positive feedback...I appreciate it.

> include a column for "Date Published"
> a column for "Number of comments"

Great ideas! Both already implemented. Will upload the enhanced version (and some updates to the article) as soon as my high-speed Internet service returns (connected via my mobile phone now...anything beyond these text comments would be painful).

> Endorsed!

Thanks for that! Regards, Joe

You are confronted with an issue that you don't know how to resolve and at times know nothing about. So, how do you research on your own to find out about the issue and what the ways are to resolve it? Experts Exchange is a great start but when you need to know more there's the Internet.

Hi Andrew,
I want to let you know that the comments in my last post were not empty promises. I now have a beta version of TrayLaunch that contains the four features mentioned in that post, i.e., all functionality available via keyboard (including right-click on tray icons via hotkeys); alternative text for all graphics and screenshots in the manual; command line calls for all features; and 24 colors (A-Z, except for C and O, explained below).

Also, I added the ability to increase the font size in the program's GUIs. There are now the typical letter "A" boxes representing five font sizes, which I'm calling: tiny, small, medium, large, huge. The small size is the point size that is in all prior TrayLaunch versions. I decided to put in one smaller choice, but three larger ones.

The select-color-stars-to-run dialog box with the 24 colors and five font size choices looks like this now:

TrayLaunch 5.0.15 (beta) select color stars to run
The font size selection is sticky, automatically saved, and used in all GUI dialogs. That screenshot is from W7 with "Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys" ticked via Control Panel>Ease of Access Center (it works the same in W10). As you can see, each color has Alt+<first-letter> as its access key. This is why O and C are not for colors, since Alt+O is the access key for the OK button and Alt+C is the access key for the Cancel button.

Once again, wanting you to know the impact of your article! Btw, as a beta user, you'll be getting the new version soon. :) Regards, Joe

Hi Andrew,

Great article! I use screenshots extensively at Experts Exchange (in posts, articles, and steps at videos), nearly all done with IrfanView. Good quality screenshots are not simply a matter of having my posts/articles/steps look pretty...it is a matter of conveying information in an effective way that aids the reader significantly.

You asked for "tips and tricks" with IrfanView, but as you rightly pointed out, it has a host of powerful features, so we could be here all day with tips and tricks. That said, I'll give your readers one tip...cropping. I often capture either the entire screen (actually, all screens in a multi-monitor environment) with the PrintScreen key or the focus/active window with Alt+PrintScreen, then paste (Ctrl+V) it into IrfanView. I then utilize IrfanView's easy-to-use cropping feature to get just the portion of the screen(s) that I want for posting the screenshot. The cropping is done by simply keeping the left mouse button clicked and dragging from one corner (such as upper left) to the other corner (such as lower right), then selecting the menu pick Edit>Crop selection (Ctrl+Y). Of course, do a Save or Save As after that to create the file with the properly cropped screenshot.

Once again, kudos on your article! Regards, Joe

Great tip Joe and something I've done myself. These days, I rely on my screen capture software but it can certainly a useful and also time-saving tip to use when more than one part of a screen is desired.

As you note, women aren't well represented in the tech field. However, skin color is relevant in that women of color are marginalized even further. While women as a group potentially experience sexism --  women of color are simultaneously exposed to both sexism and racism. The theory of intersectionality discusses this experience, but the easiest way to explain is that women of color are facing more bias and a more complex social dynamic.

I couldn't have said it better, Lucas. Thank you for your insight. Women of color face both sexism and racism in the US. I'm actually speaking at Amazon re:Invent on intersectionality in tech. I hope to see you there!

Thank you, Kesha,
An informed and appropriate article.

As a White Male with a long career in IT, I would like to point out one of your observations:
In this development process, I did not include race as a data factor, because I did not want this tool to ever racially profile individuals. Other developers from the white, male, computer-science background may not have thought of that.

If you are speaking about current White Males in IT, perhaps. But why is that so? The existence of questions about Race, Gender, Ethnicity, Socio-Economic status as it exists in IT now, may need redress. that is indeed your generation's duty to do so. It is a legacy of the past, "My Generation".

When you say
I did not want this tool to ever racially profile individuals
is to miss the point of my generation. The use of "Race" during those years in IT was never meant to "profile" with denigration. As if delimiting African Americans, Asians, American Indians, or Latinos, male or female, was the focus of the question. It was always in service of the requirements of the system, often Government Title and IRS provisions.  In these cases, it was driven by the Civil Rights Acts, Gender Equality, ADA, and other inclusive targeting which came out of the changes my generation sought during the 60' and 70's.

The data many of my systems collected was used for meeting the laudable ends of erasing the racial, economic, and gender lines of the prior generations (1950's and before). I and my colleagues never used our IT programming for "profiling" for negative effect! We opted for "Neutral" as in "All People" to be included, which required redress of the past, which (in an ironic way) required targeting those groups for such redress!

I find it distressing that observations like the ones you make here are part of broad-brush strokes that are based on a presumption of something that is not "proven" by discovery of the past.  As one of my generation that embraced the wonders of the digital age, I can certainly say that the majority of us from the 1960's on have never entertained the thought of using our systems to denigrate others based on exclusion! We also embraced those previously excluded individuals who joined our ranks. Some of the smartest and best of my colleagues were of other than white males. Were we all "perfect" according to today's standards? Of course not! We grew and changed as every generation must do The enlightenment of today did not occur overnight! It takes time!

You do your older IT colleagues a disservice in their being a small part of the change that brought you to your place in the world today. As Hillary Clinton so often says "It Takes a Village". The IT Village was not founded or became what it is today if those of us before you did not embrace the "Right Things" when we saw it.

I embrace what you express in your article, thank you.

With Respect,

An Old White IT Guy Who Loves Tech, and All The People It Serves!
