You might be tempted to pass on this app based on its busy interface, but be patient and you'll find that it offers a logical system to manage multiple open windows.
iHide provides a shell within which you may run your apps and use customized hot keys to open and close them--this functionality is particularly handy if you're running multiple apps and your desktop is so cluttered with open windows you can't easily find what you need. iHides interface isn't stylish or elegant, and on first sight you may think its a cluttered and confusing mess. But quickly scanning its multiple panes reveals that its straightforward design is very functional and simple to understand and navigate. Each section is clearly labeled, as are the steps you must follow to locate an app, assign a hot key, monitor system usage, and view which system processes are currently running.
iHide performed well in our tests, launching, hiding, and opening quickly in response to our hot keys. We liked how easy it is to assign hot keys to apps, and how this tool allowed us to tweak our system with commands such as Remove Recent Documents, Disallow Notepad, Disallow Internet Explorer, Disable Print Sharing, No Writing to USB Drives, and to tweak Vista.
The monthlong trial period is adequate to determine iHide's usefulness based on your PC needs. It's not super-cheap, but the price seems right for folks who will appreciate the app's functionality and responsiveness. It's certainly something power users should give a shot.
