Acer Aspire One 110/150 essentials!

If you're running Windows XP on this net book then here are some absolute essentials to get you started...

These pages were designed to fit an Acer Aspire One (1024 x 600 pixels) exactly when using your browser in full screen mode (press F11 to switch to/from full screen mode). It has been tested with IE6, IE7, IE8, Apple Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox 2 and Firefox 3. If you're using something else then it may not display correctly.

Fan Controller and Screen Resizer The cooling fan on some Acer Aspire Ones (including mine) can be intrusive, especially in a very quiet environment (office, school, library). Acer have set the fan to come on far too soon so this utility will stop the fan entirely below a (very safe) temperature.

This utility lets you set your screen size to 1024 x 768 pixels so you can scroll down a bit and see the lost information. There are two useful ways of doing this...

Digital Photo Frame Ok, this freeware utility isn't actually promoted as a digital photo frame but your Acer does the job beautifully for no extra cost to you!

It's actually a Windows Wallpaper Changer; that (boring) background picture you have displayed all the time can be changed (cycled) as often as you want with this program.

Know of any other essential utitlies? That might lend themselves particularly to the Acer Aspire One series? PM me with the details and I'll add suitable items here (full credit to the submitter, of course!).
