- Do you remember your frustration when you're trying to read or look at something on the screen, but mouse cursor is right on the spot and covers exactly what you're looking for? It happens time to time (frequently at most inappropriate time) and what you have to do is to get that mouse and move cursor away (until the next time). It takes your time and creates a frustration. But there is solution that makes mouse cursor disappear from the screen when you do not need it. It is a tiny program Mouse Hider that watches your mouse activity and hides mouse cursor after some period of idle time. Now, you may read again -- cursor will not obscure your important part of the screen. To make your experience even better it allows to hide mouse cursor right at a time when you press any key on keyboard and usually at that particular time you don't need that mouse anymore. When you move mouse or press any mouse button cursor reappears immediately on the same spot, serving its good purpose. No hassle, no frustration, just convenient way to have mouse input right at the time when it's really needed.
The latest version of Mouse Hider may help netbook users also. It can emulate 'Fn' key with 'Context menu' key on the right side of keyboard. And because usually 'Context menu' key is close to arrow keys, if you want to move in your document one page up or down, instead of using two hands (left hand taking care of old 'Fn' key and right hand manipulating with arrow keys) you can use only one hand. Just depress 'Context menu' key with one finger of your right hand and press corresponding arrow key with another one.
Download (the latest version is v.2.1) here: Mouse Hider. Mouse Hider does not require any installation - just unzip executable into any appropriate folder and simply run it. You don't need special uninstall program - remove executable and that's it.

- If you want to have a convenient way to request an advanced search via secure and private StartPage service by using IE context menu - install "StartPage Search Helper" add-in for IE.

You may even make a search request in the web site locally and StartPage will make search for you within the current site/domain only.
