[Icon of Censured!]Censored!

Censored! is a tiny program that will create as many black windows as you want. You can move and resize the windows as needed so they can black out parts of your screen that you want to keep hidden from prying eyes.

When you start the program, you will be presented with a solid black window. Move this to where you want it, and resize it so it obscures whatever part of your screen you want to hide from people looking over your shoulder. The window floats above the other windows on your screen, even when you switch to another application.

More Censorship

If you cannot black out all the areas you need with one window, choose File → Censor Something Else, Too from the Censored! menu to create another black window. You can have as many windows as you want.


Censored! currently has Dutch and English localizations.
