To start with, this multi-faceted desktop calculator can be used in three different syntaxes which are –standard Calculator (Infix Notation), TenKey (Adding Machine), and Scientific (RPN) calculator. The calculations it records in the scrolling list can be saved, annotated, resized, or even printed, plus it even lets you to reuse recent entries in new calculations. Its integration with other Windows applications is another add-on wherein you can cut-paste the scrolling list entries to/from applications like Microsoft Word, Excel, Quicken, Adobe Acrobat, and more.

Installation

Installing Judy’s TenKey is extremely quick and easy, as all you need to confirm is the setup destination path and no other information is required. After the installation completes, you will be prompted to select the preferred syntax (out of Standard Calculator, Adding Machine, or Scientific) for the calculator. It can be used on systems that run on these operating systems: Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7/8.

Interface

Interface of the application is pretty clean, accessible, and intuitive. The size of the window is resizable which can be very helpful during long calculations. In fact, many parts of the calculator are highly customizable as you can move the placement of number pads and the entry line to one side of the window (to make more space for the tape), make the number pad invisible, or even choose not to display the scrolling tape at all. The toolbar shows self-explanatory icons for the operations like reuse lines, copy entire calculations, show more digits, enable/disable sounds, and configure settings. The Help file is very useful and the step-by-step tutorial demo guides you through its main functions.
