Windows Enabler 1.1

The program allows the user to enable disabled windows and controls such as buttons and tick boxes
Tweaking the operating system and especially gaining access to functions that are normally unavailable in applications are surely high on top of the list of things any user would like to be able to do on a regular basis.

Nonetheless, when we come across a grayed out function inside a program or an inactive menu entry, few would think that they can be actually used, with a bit of help from a tiny friend. It's name is Windows Enabler and its existence is dedicated to making those unavailable commands work.

From the get-go you should note that it will not work for absolutely every single application you will try it on. Also, extra care is required when using Windows Enabler because the behavior of some programs for which you use the disabled controls may be erroneous.

The small utility runs minimized in your system tray and waits for you to click its icon in order to activate its functionality. While Windows Enabler is working, you will see that over the tray icon is written 'ON'. This means that you can now use those otherwise inactive buttons, menu entries or tick boxes.

Since installation is not necessary for this application and no modifications will be made to the registry, you can simply place it on a portable storage device and run it on any system. The only requirement is that you keep together the executable and the DLL library and Windows Enabler will work just fine.

All in all, this lightweight program can be a true gem for anyone who is in dire need to use a control that for some reason is not normally accessible. However, given the nature of the tool and taking into consideration the fact that many apps are able to ignore the command sent by Windows Enabler, you should not expect to have 100% success rate with it.
