WinHide is a program that quickly hide your working programs and windows. You don't need to close your working applications, just hide it. The hidden programs are not displayed in the Taskbar, in Ctrl-Alt-Del list or in task manager and they cannot be activated pressing Alt+Tab, but programs continue to be executed. You can hide and restore programs using keyboard shortcuts, WinHide System Tray menu or the WinHide window.
Imagine that you have a lot of Internet Explorer windows open at the same time, and for one moment you need to use some other program, but it will not be easy - whole desktop will be filled with Explorer windows. You press a Hotkey and suddenly, there are no Internet Explorer windows on the desktop, so you can use your program. When you are finished, you press the same Hotkey and all Internet Explorer windows reappear.
WinHide protects your privacy and prevent your information from being seen by anyone else. WinHide allows you to work calmly and do not worry about uninvited visitors. While your applications are hidden, they still work and you can show them at any time.
You can set hotkeys for basic program commands:
Hide/Show active window
Hide/Show all windows
Hide/Show a group of windows. You can specify groups of windows by their title text and set hotkeys for them. (For example, a group can comprise all windows that have 'Internet Explorer' in their title text.)
WinHide can works in hidden mode, not making anyone know that it is there or optionally can put an icon in the system tray for a quick access.
