TrayStatus. A simple but effective program
The program lets you see which keys are activated and how your storage capacity works.
It may be that on your computer or your keyboard, you don't have a light that tells you if the caps or number lock is on. Or you don't have a computer that doesn't show you how your hard drive activity is.
If so, we have a solution for you and your Windows computer.
TrayStatus allows you to see several simple things, saving you from wasting time typing in capital letters or numbers when you want to type symbols.
This application is from the company Binary Fortress, which has several programs to help the community. It was released in 2011 but has received several updates over time. The last one was in August 2020. So we can say that they have been updating over time.
Another positive point to highlight is that it is a lightweight and free application because it does not take care of much. That it is free is already a great benefit because if it is a program worth trying, we do not lose anything.
One of the features is that I do not know of other programs that fulfill this function, which is a function that few need. But if you need it, I know this program has no competition. It is the only program that does this—the right program for you.
Next, I'll tell you about some of the features of TrayStatus:
- Performance Indicators
You can view memory, CPU, and hard disk activity. There is also the option for you to view performance counters, such as Internet activity or tasks the hard disk has to run.
- Show Key Status
You can see the status of the keys that block numbers, capital letters, or the displacement of the mouse.
You can activate notifications with sound or icons to see which key is activated. It does not innovate much with this type of notification, but they are still helpful.
You can use these triggers to lock or unlock capital letters and numbers automatically. Customize this to your liking to make it a more straightforward task for you.
- Themes by Icons
You can use the black or white version that already comes pre-installed or create the icons that best suit your style. Excellent design detail to make the program more beautiful.
- Buttons to lock or unlock what you want
There is not much to explain. They are simple buttons that allow you to lock or unlock numbers or capital letters.
It comes in several languages, so you can use the one you need. You won't have to guess what each word means in English.
As I said in the title, it is a simple but easy-to-use program. If this is your case, you need to see this because you don't have the light that other keyboards inform you of this… Great! Great! This is the solution!
This program is only available for Windows, and if you want to use your Mac with a wireless keyboard or with Linux or other operating systems, you won't be able to. But if you have Windows, great.
It's a program that suits the needs of a few, but those people can use it a lot.
The installation is typical Windows, and you will probably have no problems with anything. You'll know what to do if you've ever installed anything simple on Windows.
I have read one or two reviews saying that this program has viruses or comes infected after testing it with my local antivirus on my computer. So if I were you, I wouldn't worry. There are times when other companies that are competitors of this product do bad publicity to other programs and thus prevent more people from joining.
I tested it with the advanced Windows antivirus, which works quite well with McAfee, and none of them detected the application as malicious.
Plus, as I said before, it's free and lightweight - nothing to lose!
If this program suits your needs, there is nothing better than a free and fully functional product. It can be beneficial for you.
It should be noted that it is a particular product, and it is likely that most people will not find it helpful.
But if you find it helpful, incredible!
