Many times while working on our computer we get distracted to various things on our computer, this can be avoided if there was a possibility to blank out all the parts of the screen except for the user selected custom area. Zorro is a free application that allows you to blanks out the entire screen except for the user selected area.

Below is the screen that looks before the blank out, in this example we have an open window of Opera browser:
