OuttaSight is a lightweight application that was designed to help you deal with a problem you have faced countless times. An overcrowded desktop.
With this little tool you are able to hide application windows using both automated and manual methods. OuttaSight displays a comprehensive, tabbed interface that is user-friendly. It doesn’t take you more than a couple of minutes to get the hang of it and start using it as it was intended.
The application enables you to hide windows manually and minimize them to the system tray or hide them as soon as they appear. This proves very handy in case of applications such as antiviruses or malware scanners that display a popup window every time an event occurs.
OuttaSight offers you an auto-hide feature that allows you to choose from a list of opened applications and choose whether to hide them automatically or manually. In case you go for manual mode, you can set custom hotkeys to maximize or minimize the applications. It’s a really good feature to have since you most likely have a set of applications you use every day. It can save you a lot of time and make computer use much more comfortable.
Another way to use OuttaSight, can be to quickly hide windows from passing eyes and keeping your screen private. Moreover, as far as privacy is concerned, you also get to add a password which controls access to the applications you lock.
Besides allowing you to set a key that hides or reveals any window, OuttaSight provides a set of key combinations that hide all the windows or just the active one. Pressing another hotkey setup brings out the ‘Magic Wand’ tool that automatically hides all the windows you click on. It’s a very practical tool when you need to be picky with the ones you hide.
In closing, the only real disadvantage that OuttaSight has is that it is rather old and that you might find it difficult to run it on Windows versions passed XP, though it is highly possible.
