UMPCScrollbar Powertoy for XP and Vista


Umppc_scrollerOne of the more frustrating issues since the Origami-based UMPCs arrived has to be dialog boxes that don’t quite fit on the native 800 x 480 screens. I’ve made good use of the resolution switching hardware button on my Q1s but thanks to Vikram Madan, I no longer have to and neither do you! Vikram introduced a Powertoy earlier this week for Vista-based UMPCs and that small application is now available for XP devices as well. I’ve used it all morning and it works like a charm for me, but remember that it is an unsupported Powertoy so YMMV.

The UMPCScrollbar runs quietly in the background until it senses a dialog box too large to vertically fit on your screen. Once that happens, it appears as a transparent scroll bar that allows you move the oversized window up or down. This just got added to my "must have" UMPC application list!

Hello Dears,

Another way to scroll dow and up was for me to use Winscroll, a japan utility hard to find now.


Another nice tools is Virtual Desktop (from Japan too). Ypou can have 2 to 10 desktop with the ability to move windows from one to others. I use just 2 Desktop (upper and lower). By this way all buttons from any windows become “clickable”. In this way too, you can easily share many floating windows frome one soft. Just drag a floating windows on another Desktop. A click on the mini dock help to navigate from one to another (or Shortkeys). Don’t be afraid the app is in japanese at the launch, but in the options choose “Use English”.

A very good app !


Another one, Frenchth this time is Yod’m 3D

A 4 desktop on a rotating cube. Version 1.3 at this time !

Tested too with succes on my Samsung Q1.


More crazy in a near future, a simmilar approach (french too) but more a “Beryl like” and “Aero 3D like” for Windows XP.

Have a look here !

Best regards
