809 downloads..so I have to help someone and remember how to get the session ID, then remember how to shadow. All from a command prompt. Not cool. So I wrote this, Is coded for Windows in English. May work in other languages too. ( as long as "qwinsta" runs, this should work ) It now calls wtsapi32.dll For this to work as intended, uncheck "noPrompt", or make the changes to the group policy, only if you know what you are doing. ( I will not aid anyone on how what, as I'm not qualified ) This is for when all works as you wish, but have to use the command line to shadow a user ( and everyone is in a hurry ). This gives you a list of users to just click to help the user on a remote session, by guiding them ( view ) or interacting with the desktop ( control ). I do not advise to change anything on your system, nor to use this, but if you find it useful, then, it is a very practical utility. I did not post in the examples forum as is not an example worth posting. It grabs the text out of qwinsta Calls wtsapi32.dll and runs mstsc. Not a noteworthy example.
Subtitle pretty much says it. This program darkens the screen except for the active window with options accessible through a convenient tray icon. Other options are supported as well, including: active window-change fading controlcustom darkening color (instead of default black)background image choice (faded image over background windows. weird, but ok.)etc...Obligatory Screenshot: Download: WindowDarken.zip (source) Off-topic notes: I have no clue if there are other programs that do something similar, nor did I really check. I didn't really check the forum thoroughly either to see if something like this already existed, sorry. This was written initially for Windows XP, so I'm sorry if I wasted your time if something like this exists in your Windows Vista or 7. Tech summary: Forces the active Window as Topmost and a solid "darken" window on top of the normal windosw. Has complications concerning topmost state changes of both windows and other topmost windows. Doesn't seem to get along with some windows (namely GIMP's editor window). Some exclusions are coded in, but there may need to be an option added later to allow custom exclusions.
