I wrote Dim XS for myself out of "Burning Necessity" LOL. If you like, or even Love the tool as much as I do, please show your appreciation with a Donation of your choosing. I use Dim XS just about every day, and as a PC gamer of 30+ years, I'm really surprised it took me this long to solve this problem. Enjoy!
