Master Links  Version 1.00.0238 - 05/31/2009
    Along the way I have collected over 4000 links to web pages I have searched for information and saved so I wouldn't have to search for the information again.  But I have found that looking for the link takes more time than doing the Google search again.  Master Links organizes your links into searchable databases.  Databases can be created, renamed and deleted.  You can import links from a web page or a folder (Windows "Favorites") and they can be transferred to other link databases of different categories by multiple item drag and drop. Databases can be searched for words or phrases in quotes in the link name or in the page the link points to.  When a link is found, double clicking on the link opens Internet Explorer for that web page.  Web pages come and go, the links in a database or all the links in all the databases can be tested if a real web page is out there.  The ones that fail are moved to the "Recycle Bin" inside the program where they can be manually clicked on and tested again and then deleted if they fail.  Link names can be edited so they are more meaningful or deleted by right clicking on a link.  While in Internet Explorer a right click on the web page provides a menu item called "Master Links Capture".  The web page name and link is sent to the Master Links "Captured" database where it can be later transferred to the database category where it belongs.  The databases can be Backed up and Restored so they can be transferred to another computer.  Shortcuts to the program are made in the Programs Folder, on the desktop and in the Quick Launch Tray.  The program has a complete Uninstall feature.  Runs on all Windows versions.

Usernames and Passwords  Version 1.00.0113 - 08/07/2010
    I have over 60 password logon web sites where I purchase computer products or get information.  I have kept a sheet (sheets) with all the usernames, passwords, revision dates, url to the logon page and additional information needed to use the web site.  I was constantly updating the database in Word and printing out three new sheets for shop, home and the wife's business.  I wrote a program to make it easier to manage.  In the program you can go to the logon page of the web site, double click on the item in the program list associated with the web site, go back to the web page and paste your username and password into the logon fields and click the logon button on the page.  The program can be password protected at startup, the password can be changed and a startup shortcut is made in the quick launch tray.  Items in the list can be Added, Edited and Deleted.  BackUp and Restore features are provided.  The database list can be printed.  The database is a plain text file that is encrypted and resides only in your "My Documents" folder.  An in program Help file is provided.  An Uninstall feature is also provided.  Runs on all Windows versions.

ErieRecord  Version 1.00.0411 - 01/07/2008
    My youngest son started this obsession, we have traveled to Ireland several times and he's fallen in love with the Traditional Irish music, "Trad" as it's called in Ireland.  He's been listening to and asked me if there was a way to record it to MP3 files so he can burn CDs to listen to on the way to and from work.  Windows XP

SafelyRemove  Version 1.00.0048 - 08/06/2010
    If you use a removable USB device frequently, Flash/Pen drive, USB Hard Drive, MP3 Player, Camera, etc. you know what a pain it is to go through the "Safely Remove Hardware" sequence to disconnect it after your done with it.  If you don't do this you risk corrupting the data on the device.  This program will generate a shortcut on the Quicklaunch tray or Desktop to disconnect the device with one click.  You can have a shortcut for as many devices that you have with a friendly name for each, "Safely Remove SanDisk U3 Cruzer Micro USB Device".  UNINSTALL old version before installing new!  Windows XP

To download a file:
   When I downloaded a file from a website, I would copy the title of the file to the clipboard. Then I would download the file to a desktop folder I would create with the title in the clipboard and save the file to the folder. I then would copy a link to the webpage to the folder.  Click the Easy IE button on the Internet Explorer toolbar. The title of the page will be pasted into the Easy IE bar "Title:" textbox and the Url to the webpage will be pasted into the Easy IE bar "Page:" textbox. Click on the download file link on the webpage and download the file in the usual way. The download will be directed to a folder name on the desktop that was created by Easy IE with the "Page:" textbox title. After the download is finished open the folder and you will find the downloaded file and an internet link to the webpage for later referral.

Copy text from a web page and save to a file in a folder:
   Click the Easy IE button on the IE toolbar, high light only the text you want or the entire webpage, right click the high lighted text and choose "Copy" from the right click menu. Click the "Text" button on the Easy IE bar and an edit window will popup with the high lighted text in the window. Close the window and say Yes to save. The text will be saved into a desktop folder of the "Page:" title name with a file in it by the name of "Easy IE1". If you save text from the same webpage again the next file would be "Easy IE2". Also a link to the page is generated in the folder. The saved text files can be setup with a file extension of DOC for Microsoft Word, HTM for Microsoft FrontPage, RTF for Microsoft Wordpad or TXT for a plain text file. Click on "File" and then "Save as:" on the menu bar of the main Easy IE or the "Copy and Save Text" window to select.  If you are a writer you can plagiarize the entire World Wide Web!

Make a link to a web page in a desktop folder:
