Ever go from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and notice how the default “This PC” Explorer view is just so cluttered with Pictures, Videos, Documents, Etc? Also notice how these folders also show up on the left navigation bar?
Want to fix it? This is for you.

Please note that I have ONLY tested this on x64 Windows 10 1703-1809, Server 2016 & Server 2012 R2.
After purchasing a UPS, I was surprised by the quality of the monitoring software that was available.
It was either too bloated, or looked so old that I didn’t want to install it. I still don’t understand why I need such a large program, to do such a basic task.
Due to this, I decided to create Battery Notification. It’s a simple open source program, less than 1mb in size, that (as of now) runs in the users session and monitors the computers power state. If it notices the power state change, it send you an email (which you can configure within the program) and writes to a local log file.
I wrote this mainly for myself, but while making it decided to ‘extend’ it a little and make it more universal.
The next goal is to create a Windows Service that can run in the background, but this will come in the future. Check back here, or on my github page for more.
In this category of “Software” posts I will be documenting a few useful little Windows applications I have made that help make my life a bit easier, and teach me something about coding.
This particular application is a very basic MD5 hash generator. Simply select a file, and click “Check MD5.” It will output the hash into the box below, and there you go! Very small application, and you don’t have to memorize how to do this in CMD.
If an error is generated, the application will create an ‘errorLog.txt’ file in the same directory as the EXE.
If you find any bugs, please comment or email me, and let me know in the comments or by email.
