Hide Active Window Into the System Tray Using UltraHide

Almost all of you must have experience the situation like you are doing some private work on your computer. And suddenly someone enters in your room and you need to close your work because you cannot minimize since another guy is quit smart to see your minimize window.

Another instance, suppose you are in office and you are reading something enjoyable or doing some personal work and suddenly your boss approach towards you. Yes, you can minimize the window but I don’t think your boss won’t have any idea about taskbar. 😛

In both cases, when they leave you, you again render that files to continue where you have stopped. Don’t you think, it takes time to search again the same file in the computer and also you have to remember from where you have stopped.

These efforts can be reduce by using freeware software called “UltraHide” which not only hide active window but also protect it with password without which you or anyone else cannot reopen the same window atleast from desktop. It’s really helpful.
