HideWin is a small Windows program designed to hide windows from view. It is particularly useful for removing the message banners/advertisements/popup windows placed on screen by numerous ISPs and web sites, but can be used to hide any windows created by any program. Unlike other programs that
"kill" these windows, HideWin simply hides them from view. Sometimes, killing a window can be counterproductive.
For example, some ISPs will terminate an internet connection if a message bar window is closed. HideWin solves this
problem by simply hiding, and not closing, any windows you specify.
HideWin will hide any windows whose title and/or class match strings that you specify. A window's title is the text
displayed in its titlebar. Specifying a title is usually sufficient (and the easiest way) to identify and hide windows.
Simply type the title of the window you want to hide and click the "Add" button. When specifying a window title, capitalization and spacing are important. If your title string does not match the window title exactly, the window
will not be hidden.
The class of a window is not usually displayed on the screen, but can be used in conjunction with a title to uniquely
identify windows that share the same title, but belong to different classes. Alternatively, you can specify just a
class name (leaving the title field empty) to hide multiple windows of the same type (e.g. all notepad windows have
the class name of "Notepad"). To see a listing of the class names of all visible windows, click on the "List
Visible Windows" button.
Because popup windows sometimes become visible again, HideWin continually searches for and hides windows. Enter
the number of milliseconds to pause between searches in the "Hide Frequency" box.
(Note: 1000 milliseconds = 1 second)
