Simple Ping is a software program that was developed specifically to aid individuals in pinging their Internet connection and keeping an eye on it, through a small pop-up window.
Hassle-free setup and non-obtrusive interface
The installation process does not offer to download third-party products and it is over in a jiffy, yet if you are interested in bypassing it, you should know that a portable edition is also available, called Portable Simple Ping. The GUI you are brought to presents a minimal and unobtrusive interface, as it encompasses just a few buttons and some slider bars. It is suitable to all types of users, regardless of their previous experience with the IT world.
Input IP address and customize pop-up window
First and foremost, you should know that this tool creates a small pop-up window on the window, which enables you to easily keep an eye on the ping. By clicking on the system tray icon, you can easily access the settings panel, as well as close the app entirely.
You can input the IP address you want to ping, the time period at which to ping, as well as the bytes, TTL and timeout. In addition to that, you can customize the pop-up window, by adjusting the width, height and rounded corner size with the help of the incorporated slider bars, and changing the background and text color, and font type, style and size.
It is possible to set it up to always stay on top of other opened windows, launch at Windows startup, enable a transparency mode or blend it into the desktop.
To wrap it up, Simple Ping is a pretty handy piece of software when it comes to pinging an IP address. The interface is user-friendly, the response time is good, the amount of resources required is quite low and we did not register any errors or crashes in our tests.
