Print Screen
EasyDesktop will let you make real print screens. When you have something on the screen that you want to print, or save to a file, press the <PRT SCR> (print screen) key, and "Paint 3D" will appear, giving you the choice to print or save.

Special Keyboard Commands
Menu pages can be changed by using the <F1> to <F9> keys.  You can also use the <PAGE UP> and <PAGE DOWN> keys.

Inserting Special Characters
EasyDesktop comes with a utility that will let you instantly insert special characters such as the copyright symbol, into any Windows application. When you need to insert a character, simply click on the little blue font box, in your taskbar, and select the character that you want. The character will be automatically inserted where you were typing. For more information click here.

Font Samples
EasyDesktop has a utility that will let you sample all of your fonts on screen, as well as print out sample sheets. To access this utility click on the little blue font box in the taskbar and select the "Font Samples" choice.

Disk Space
When you use EasyDesktop's "Explore" feature (press the "Explore" button in the toolbar), the free disk space is displayed next to the drive.

Keyboard Launching
You can launch EasyDesktop menu buttons using the keyboard.  Press the numbers 1 thru 4, depending on the menu page column.  Letters will be displayed to the left of the button titles.  Then press the letter next to the menu item that you want and it will be launched.

The "Special Character Menu" appears when you click on the little blue font icon in your Windows taskbar (by the time display).



When you click on a special character from the resulting menu, it is inserted exactly when you were typing.

Information EasyDesktop does not look right due to screen / font scaling
Posted by: Flying Dutchman - 04-27-2020, 05:10 PM - Forum: EasyDesktop 10 - No Replies

Sometimes the EasyDesktop screen will not scale correctly due to the resolution settings in Windows. If this happens you can override the scaling settings. Right-click on the EasyDesktop icon on your desktop and select "Properties".

   

In the "Properties" window select the "Compatibility" tab. Then press the "Change high DPI settings" button. In the resulting window check the "Override high DPI scaling..." option and select "System (Enhanced)" in the drop-down list. Then re-launch EasyDesktop and it should look better.
