Whether surfing the web, playing a game, or listening to music, Boss Blocker is there to save you when you need to quickly switch screens. Simply hit the Boss Blocker keyboard shortcut and Boss Blocker will take care of the rest -- hiding windows, muting audio, and pausing media players -- all while displaying a "productivity" window of your choice, or activating the screen saver.

Important: Boss Blocker runs in the background, and optionally lives in the MENU BAR. App Store puts the Boss Blocker icon in the dock, but you can remove it from there if you'd like. Be sure to test your Boss Blocker keyboard shortcut with the apps you normally use -- please note that some games intentionally disable global hotkeys while in full screen mode!

Great App to Quickly Hide Screen! - When I saw Boss Blocker I was immediately taken back to my childhood where my Mom took us to an electronics store called Incredible Universe and she said we could each get something for our new Macintosh Performa 638cd and I chose the book/disc 'The Macintosh Joker' which contained a bunch of extensions for Mac classic, one of which was an extension hotkey to quickly change the screen to act like you were working. I had so much fun with this collection and I actually used the hide extension a lot as I was on BBS's running up my parents phone bill and had to hide my screen! Boss Blocker is a great hot key program, when enabled quickly changes/hides your screen. People aren't on BBS's much anymore but I can see many people using this to quickly hide their Facebook pages and online games super quick! :) Great find, great app! Well worth the price! Keep up the good work!
