I found myself doing a number of Base64 conversions recently – I usually use PowerShell for this, but I decided it would be handy to have a tool to do it, so I created one! Not something that hasn’t been done before or can’t easily be done online, but it’s always nice to create your own tool that looks and functions just how you want it 🙂
The tool can encode and decode either text, images or any kind of file. You can also use it to convert images from one format to another – simply open an image an encode to Base64, then decode the Base64 and save it with the file extension you want to convert it to.
You can install it from the Microsoft store:

1) If you try to decode an image and don’t enter a name or path in the output box then instead of showing an error it just crashes / closes
2) Would be good if it has a box where it showed the decoded image on screen as well as just allowing to be save – or even better show it on screen before you choose to save it?
just a though
Thanks for the feedback.
Just released version 1.1.2 which fixes (1) and adds (2). You can update from the MS Store.
Excellent, thanks Trevor – just left you a review / rating in the Microsoft Store too 🙂
