Whenever you are looking at an intense amount of data or extensive charts, a problem you may have is not being able to easily line up data with the appropriate axis or column. If this sounds familiar then check out the freeware program, CrossHair.
The description on the web site does a better job than I did of explaining:
CrossHair displays two full-screen lines intersecting your mouse cursor when you press a hot key. As you move the mouse cursor, the lines follow over any program or window. The program is tiny, and runs completely transparently until you call up the crosshairs. It’s useful for eyeballing any kind of chart or tabular data on screen, and for aligning objects in graphics or design applications.
I have been using this tool for when I have to line up boxes on a “free form” with no ‘snap’ holders. This makes it infinitely easier than my old method of using the side of a Windows Explorer window to line them up. This program is small and fast and it consumes virtually zero system resources.
