UnderCover is a free software to hide controls of Windows. When you run any software on your computer that has button controls or other controls, you can use UnderCover to hide controls on that. This could be useful if you are running some program, and you don’t want anyone to tinker with its controls. For example, you might be playing some movie on Real Player, and do not want your kids to push buttons of Real Player; this freeware will come handy in that case (or, you can just use Keyboard lock software).
UnderCover is quite easy to use. Just download UnderCover from here. The download size is less than 1 MB, so it should download in a jiffy. Once you have downloaded it, double click on the exe file to run it. There is no installation required.
When you run the software, it will immediately go to the system tray, and will show a small icon. To hide controls on any window, just press Ctrl key, and Right click on that window. This will make controls of that Window disappear. Its as simple as that.
I am not sure what is the exact procedure to get the controls back. For me, getting control backs was a bit random. In some cases, the control would come back on just pressing the Ctrl key. In other cases, I had to click Ctrl and Right click, and in some cases I had to kill the software.
To change settings, you can just Right click on the system tray icon, to get the settings Windows.
UnderCover is a nice tool to quickly hide controls of any Windows. It is not perfect, but it is quite unique in what it does. Try it out, and see how it works for you.
