Get to the bottom of any problems ailing your computer with CrystalDiskInfo, which shows you exactly what’s wrong in an easy to use interface.
Why you need it
If there’s something wrong with your computer, it’s not always obvious what the problem is. Even experienced PC users can be stumped by a faulty computer, which makes CrystalDiskInfo such a useful program.
Get it up and running and it displays the S.M.A.R.T. information of your PC – that stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology, and it lets you see exactly what’s ailing your computer.
CrystalDiskInfo breaks this down and makes it easy to know exactly whether a drive is too hot or whether your computer is in general good health or is about to lay down and die. Even better, this useful little app can automatically send you alerts if a problem arises, meaning you can quickly address the problem before any serious damage is caused.
Works on: PC
Diagnose problems: Find out exactly what is ailing your computer and solve the problem fast
Monitor PC health: CrystalDiskInfo can send you alerts when things go wrong, especially useful if you need to monitor several systems at once
Windows: One of the nice things about Windows is that if you don’t like a particular detail, you can change it. CustomizerGod allows you to manage nearly everything—including icons, branding, the Start button and more—in one place.
The app includes many categories for things you can customize like the appearance and behavior of the Start button, the Charms bar, system tray icons and more. It can also backup your settings so you can revert your changes later. The installer does have some unwanted software selected to install by default, but simply check the appropriate boxes and read each step carefully and you should be good.
Windows/OS X/Linux: Adobe just launched Brackets 1.0, a text editor for web developers. It’s free and has Inline Editing, Live Preview, and Preprocessor Support features, which all deliver unique conveniences.
Using the Inline Editors feature, you can see two or more files side by side instead of flipping back and forth between tabs like most other text editors. Live Previews show you the changes you make, as you make them, in the browser. You don’t have to worry about periodically refreshing the page to check on your progress. Preprocessor Support makes it easy to find, add, and edit class correlations between your HTML and CSS files: hover over a class in the index.html file and hit Command+E. Each CSS file the class is affected by will pop up, then proceed to open the file(s) you want in the inline editor to make changes. If you haven’t added CSS code for the class you select, you can do so right then with just a click.
