ceOpener is a virtual desktop generation app with task management and application launcher functions

When you start ceOpener, the taskbar will be displayed at the bottom of the screen. There is a "Start" button on the left end of the taskbar, and a list of running applications is displayed next to it. The task tray on the right side of the task bar displays the plug-in setting menu, clock, etc. Running apps are often listed in the form of the app name or the name of the file that the app is opening. Also, the dictionary app will appear with the name "SHARP Simulator". A long press on the respective app item will open the following pop-up menu.

forced termination
Force quit that app. It may fail.
Put that app in the background.
Close that app.

You can also collapse the taskbar by pressing the triangular icon on the far right of the taskbar. Press it again to restore the taskbar.

Press the Start button on the left end of the taskbar to display the Start menu.

My device
Explorer will launch.
Control panel
The Control Panel will be displayed. Since the item has been deleted in the 2nd and 3rd generation, please put the file downloaded from here in \Windows. No reset required.
You can run the file by entering the full path or from the folder tree.
all programs
A list of applications in \NAND3\Apps or \Storage Card\Apps will be displayed and can be started. In this case, it is necessary to have the same file structure as when starting from the dictionary side (executable file name is AppMain.exe, index.din file at the same level).
The setting menu for various plug-ins will be displayed. This menu can also be displayed from the task tray.
The ceOpener settings menu opens.
close the dictionary app
Quit the Brain Dictionary app. If it's already closed, it will be named "Open Dictionary App" and will open the Dictionary App instead.
Closing the ceOpener
Exit ceOpener.


ceOpener can extend its functionality by adding plugins. In addition, Grain/Ho's 2nd generation and later compatible versions include all plug-ins from the beginning.

Localize Patch
A plug-in that applies Japanese fonts to the CE environment.
Input Switch
This is a plug-in for Japanese input. On the 2nd generation (models with a sub-touch panel), the input character is switched from the sub-touch panel, and on the 3rd generation or later, the key assigned in the ceOpener setting is used to switch the input character. When entering Japanese, you can use the space key to convert to kanji. Also, in 3rd generation or later, you can enter symbols by unchecking "Use sub-touch panel".
A plugin that assigns keys. You can set keys that are not on Brain's keyboard and keys that can be assigned to running apps, etc. There is also an import/export function for assignment states.
Opener Shot
A plugin that allows you to take screenshots. Create a folder to save screenshots, register it in the OpenerShot settings, and set the key to use for capture from "Settings" -> "Key Assignment".
Power Manager
A plug-in that configures settings such as power management and brightness adjustment.
Opener Pointer
A virtual cursor plug-in for models without a touch panel.
