Most Viewed in April 2021

This site had 19,810 visits in April 2021 from 13,995 unique visitors. That’s 660 visits per day. Collectively, they downloaded 97,482 pages.

The list below is of document pages that were each viewed at least 100 times in the month. Ranks in parentheses are from March 2021. Faded titles are just index pages which I presume are viewed only or mainly on the way to others, especially while moving from one Table of Contents (TOC) to another. One of those index pages is just the skimpiest of placeholders, pending my writing an introduction, which I likely never will get round to. The TOCs are omitted entirely, as is the banner page, since none of these are meant to be seen independently of a document page.

Clearly, there’s a lot more user-mode interest than kernel-mode. That a decade-old throw-way page about the Windows Explorer’s command-line switches gets nearly 20 views a day is just embarrassing, but I will take note that the most-viewed pages of technical cataloguing are of functions exported from KERNEL32 and NTDLL. I haven’t updated these even roughly for myself in years. They still go no further than the original Windows 10. Updates surely would have happened anyway when I get to these pages as part of the site’s ongoing (but slowing) reworking of scripts and style sheets. But I will move these ahead.
