Old Favorites Returning from the Original PowerToys

To quit the Mute program:

Double-click the speaker icon.
In the Mute Speaker dialog box, tap Yes to exit.

Cascading Menus

To explore folders in Explorer view, hold CTRL while double-clicking the folder.
Fully customizable: just drag the files, folders or shortcuts you'd like to see on the menu to the Windows\Start Menu folder.


Paint Program for Windows CE
Create pictures and edit images with a pocket-sized version of the Microsoft Windows 95 Paint program. Paint for Windows CE works just like Paint for Windows 95 on your desktop computer.

Sound Schemes
Copy one or more of the following custom sound schemes to your H/PC. Use the Sound tab on the Volume & Sounds control panel to activate them. These classic schemes are available: Analog, Metallic, and Organic. This new scheme has clever connection sound effects: Sci-Fi.

Bitmap Tiles

Notably Missing

Remote Control for Windows CE
Note: Unfortunately, Remote Control no longer works in version 2.0. The technical reason is that a change to the graphics subsystem no longer allows a 2-1 splitter to be dropped into the video-out system. Thank you all for your positive feedback about enjoying this PowerToy.
