242 Tiny (1kb-10kb) Windows XP+ GUI Programs in a 1.44mb Floppy Image (+ documentation)

Hello everyone,

I've collated all the 242 tiny (10kb and less) Windows XP+ GUI programs that I've collected over the last 25 years and put them on my small Synology web site.

These are mainly programs from the early to mid 2000's aimed primarily at Windows XP and they have all been tested and confirmed working on Windows XP.

Many will work with Windows 9x through to Windows 10 (based on cursory testing done to date) but that's for you to find out as I don't have the time to test all these on each OS from Windows 95 to Windows 10.

I've only included Windows GUI programs and there are no DOS, Windows 3.1 or Windows 9x specific programs, or Windows XP CMD line programs.

There are also no device drivers, no system files, no games, no screensavers and no wallpapers or themes - just small functional freeware programs.

There are some most excellent small Windows programs in the collection.

I've included a brief description of each one and tried to identify the author, although that wasn't possible for all programs.

I've also included URL links to the author's web site where possible but most of these now only exist on the Internet Archive.

I've steered away from Java and NET programs (with 2 exceptions) but there are quite a few VB/VC programs.

I've marked those programs I found had a dependency in the documentation.

The programs are grouped into 7 categories, simply to make them easier to browse as 242 programs on 1 page is a bit awkward.

There are also documents with program details and screenshots for each group, as well as the program files themselves.

I've also included a floppy disk image in IMA format that has all 242 programs as well as a description document (and room to spare).

The downloads are small, so download whatever takes your fancy and enjoy.

And finally, thanks to all the authors of these programs for making them freely available for everyone to enjoy.

Best regards,
