While working on the computer we tend to open lot many windows and applications, don’t we? Some applications are general while others might contain some confidential data. Thus it becomes very important for us to protect our data and hide if someone is nearby.
To hide the data what we generally do is minimize the window and/or shut down the monitor but this does not prevent the unwanted attention. Moreover this is little tedious, wouldn’t it be great if there is something that can instantly hide the application windows but keep it running in the background? I am sure this is what you were looking for.
Here is a simple and free tool called Hide Windows that does exactly the same. This program can be used to hide all the program windows that are currently opened on your computer instantly. The main advantage of this tool is that it doesn’t terminate the programs whereas it makes them invisible and they keep executing in the background.
All you have to do is just run this utility, and it will display a list of all the applications that are running at the moment in your computer. Now you can select to hide/unhide any window from the list. The tool can also be used to terminate a program too.
Since you can’t run this app every time to hide a window, you can make use of the hotkey combination to access this feature. The tool is free and very simple to use however it is currently supported in Windows 2000, 2003, 2008, XP, Vista and Win 7.
