HISTORY TAPE: Records your calculations in a scrolling list which you
can save, print, and resize (a real help in keeping track of your calculations).
You can also reuse tape entries, saving typing and reducing errors.
SELECTABLE SYNTAX: Judy's TenKey can process numbers like a
scientific calculator (RPN), an adding machine, or a normal calculator. If
you are familiar with one and not another, you know how difficult and
frustrating it can be to try to switch. Perfect for accountants, engineers, and
CUSTOMIZABLE DISPLAY: You can decide how you want your TenKey
to look (selecting from tape, memory, statistics, functions, trigonometry,
finance, and number pad options), enabling you to optimize screen usage.
Any TenKey function can always be activated via the keyboard regardless of
the current display configuration.
FINANCIAL CALCULATIONS: Judy's TenKey calculates monthly
payments for most loans (e.g., cars, houses, etc.), expected investment
growth, necessary retirement savings, inflation adjustment, and more.
STATISTICS: Judy's TenKey calculates standard statistics for highlighted
tape entries, including average value, sum, and standard deviation.
KEEP ON TOP: You can set Judy's TenKey to stay on top of all other
windows, so you quickly calculate something even when editing a document
DECIMAL SETTING: You can set Judy's TenKey to display the number of
decimal positions you prefer, ranging from 0 to "as needed". If you
frequently deal with money, you might want to set the decimals to 2 (for
cents) or 0 (for dollars).
INTELLIGENT COPY & PASTE: You can copy tape entries to other
applications, including Microsoft Word, Excel, and Notepad. You can also
paste input from these applications. If extraneous text and special formatting
are mixed in with your numbers, Judy's TenKey uses heuristic reasoning to
extract and interpret appropriate information.
EXTRA TOUCHES: Judy's TenKey remembers your favorite screen
position and displays itself there every time. It also uses commas for
moderately large numbers (e.g., "1,000,000"), displays negative numbers in
red, and allows you to use the backspace key to edit results for further
calculation. When in scientific mode, it provides an unlimited stack.

more reliably. Once you can see (and reuse!) the numbers in your
calculations, you will never return to the default Windows calculator. We're
