CinemaDrape 220.127.116.112reviewed by Vedin Klovo on 4/5
Focusing on the job you need to finish on your computer is not always an easy task. Distractions come in many different forms and sometimes a major part of your screen is actually irrelevant to your current preoccupation. If only there was a way to hide such parts of your screen...
CinemaDrape is a free, light-weight program which basically either hides or dims the parts of the screen you are not using at the moment. You can download and install an installer package or alternatively there is also a portable .zip version available. Either way, it only takes up a couple of kilobytes on your computer.
Its interface is limited, as there is no window or home screen in a classic sense. When you first open the program, everything is colored black and you are prompted with the welcome screen which gives you enough information for you to start.
Simply use your mouse to select rectangle areas which display the parts of your screen that were previously hidden. When you finish making the selections, you will only be able to use the selected parts. You can have many different areas to use and they don't need to be connected at all.
You can change the color of the hidden part of the screen easily and you can change the opacity in order to make the hidden part less obscure. The app otherwise doesn't mute sounds and you will have to do that manually to prevent distractions.
