No comments
Once in a while, having breaks from your usual office tasks is good to stay focus and refresh your mood. Breaks may include but not limited to playing games, browsing your favorite websites and watching movie clips. Such activities are commonly prohibited at the office so I strongly advise to do it discretely. To quickly hide selected applications from prying eyes of co-workers or even from your boss, you can use Panic button apps such as Winhide.SB and Window hider. Another software on this division is Clicky Gone. It allows you to hide any active window on your desktop with a keyboard shortcut.
