Information...priceless! Modern programs do their best to protect you from data loss. Text editors create backup copies of documents, web browsers remember login info that you enter on Web pages. Password managers help you manage your passwords, backup managers help you backup virtually everything. Yet, how is it that you still spend hours or even days restoring pieces of precious information? How is it that you lose your info again and again?
Is there a solution? I was happily surprised to find a freeware program that does exactly what I need. This program is called REFOG Free Keylogger. Despite its funny name, the program has nothing to do with spying. It simply logs all applications that you start on your own PC, the titles of their windows, all your keystrokes, and more.
How can it help you? Imagine you are writing a long e-mail message. Then you click a wrong button or your e-mail client hangs and you have to write the same text from scratch. Sound familiar? With REFOG Free Keylogger you will never lose any of your text, whether it was typed in an e-mail client, a text editor, a text field of an on-line form or anywhere else. Simply open Refog's log. You will find all your text right there.
Sometimes I need to copy several fragments of text from a web page or a Word document. Windows clipboard only allows you to copy one piece of text at a time. I use REFOG Free Keylogger to grab as many pieces of text at a time as I need to. I just copy them all into the Windows clipboard and end up with the whole thing in my REFOG log.
What was the address of that page? Why haven't you added it to your bookmarks? I was guessing addresses as you do. But now I know that my REFOG Free Keylogger saves them all for me. Yes, it also logs the addresses of all the Web pages that you visit.
Did I mention passwords? All my passwords and registration keys are also safely logged now!
