WinDynamicDesktop: Change the desktop wallpaper depending on the time and location.

WinDynamicDesktop brings dynamic desktop capability from MacOS Mojave to Windows 10. Uses your location to set sunrise and sunset times, and changes your desktop wallpaper to the time of day.

Select a theme and enter your location the first time you run the application, then it will minimize to your system tray and change the wallpaper in the background. You can import custom themes or create your own and customize the application to automatically change the color of Windows 10 or periodically update your location. 

The application uses the LocationIQ API to convert your location to latitude and longitude, or the Windows Location API, if authorized. Location data is anonymous and is never stored without your consent.

Microsoft PowerToys: Add useful enhancements to Windows

Microsoft PowerToys is a set of tools that add some extra useful features to Windows. 

Inspired by PowerToys of the Windows 95 era, this application provides some improvements with the most basic in my opinion being PowerRename, a Windows Shell extension for advanced bulk file renaming and image resize through which we can change the dimensions in the simplest way in any image.

RetroBar : Replace the taskbar

RetroBar is a simple, free program, which aims to replace the classic Windows taskbar on modern computers running Windows 10 or Windows 11 operating system. 

The application does not require installation, however it can be launched with the taskbar of your choice if desired. 

So, if you miss using the taskbar of older versions of windows, you can replace your current taskbar with that of Windows XP, Windows 95-98, or Windows Me. However, at any time if you wish, you can close the application and return to the original.

9Locker: Lock your patterned desktop

9Locker offers you a fully customizable pattern lock screen that you can quickly install on any computer. It will help you lock your computer just like you would your tablet or smartphone.

It gives your computer a pattern lock screen where you drag your mouse along a 3x3 grid until you create your predetermined pattern. 

You can also set an emergency password to get into your computer in the more traditional way if you want.

The program comes with five custom backgrounds that you can use on your lock screen, but you can set the background to be any image you want, a nice customization option.

The program asks for your e-mail during installation, which makes the setup take a little longer. However, if you give 9Locker your email, it can send you an alert whenever someone tries to break into your computer. 

It can even activate the webcam and take a picture of the intruder.

9Locker offers you a unique way to lock your PC that fans of mobile gadgets will love. 

It backs up all that style with substance, too, adding a layer or two of security.
