A simple program that changes your taskbar into a dynamic color-changing resource meter!
Latest Version: v2.2.2 - Added automatic updating and single-instance enforcement.
View your CPU, RAM or Active Disk Usage as a dynamic bar representation... in the form of your Taskbar!
Auto-check updates: will check for updates daily
Show settings at startup: open the settings window whenever you run the program
Fade colours: whenever it changes from one colour to another, it will blend the colours in a smooth animation
Hide tray icon: removes the tray icon from the system tray. Closing it will require ending the process, and to restore the icon you must edit settings.rcts in a text editor and change it to:
appearing as such:
Split by width/height: arrange the two bars side-by-side or on top of one another
Left-aligned/Bottom-aligned: anchor the relevant bar to the left or bottom of the screen (depending what side of the screen your Taskbar is on)
Refresh rate: how often the bar updates its values in milliseconds
Supports: Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1
For Windows 7, works best with AeroPlain
(irrelevant for Windows 8 and 8.1)
