Windows only: ScreenMask is a small and portable application that allows you to mask off sections of your screen to minimize distractions or increase focus on a given area. Why would you want to mask your screen you ask? If you're watching a video on the web and the site doesn't allow full screen mode—or the full screen mode looks awful— you can mask away the web browser and site interface by highlighting only the actual video window. Alternately you might need to temporarily pay attention only to a portion of the screen such as a notification window, while doing work at your desk but preferring to not be distracted by other things going on at your computer. ScreenMask has the ability to change the colour the mask between navy blue and black, has a quick hide button, and the presets to allow you to save the three most common screens you use. ScreenMask is freeeware, Windows only.
