Q-Dir (32-bit)
Manage your files with ease using Q-Dir

Windows Explorer is the tool built into Windows that can be used to navigate and organise folders. It can be used in a couple of ways - as individual folder windows or as a file navigator with a tree structure. While both options have their uses, they also have limitations and this goes some way to explaining the sheer number of Explorer-replacement tools that exist.

Q-Dir is one such utility, but rather than offering the dual-paned view favoured by many programs, this software goes a little further by feature four panes. This Quadro-View approach means that it is easier to work with numerous folders at the same time, or copy and move files between media with ease.

Each pane of the program can be used to display a different folder or drive and colour coding can be used to highlight files of a particular type. Built in support for .zip and .cab files makes it easy to work with compressed file formats and an integrated FTP client means that files can be easily uploaded and downloaded from your web space.

A much requested feature that is missing from Explorer can be found in Q-Dir - the option to print directory contents. There's also built in previewing of a number of common file types and a screen magnifier to enlarge sections of the screen. Q-Dir is everything you could ask of a file browser and more.

This is the portable version of the program, which can be run directly from USB flash drive.
 

Verdict:

As Explorer replacements go, Q-Dir is one of the best, offering unique features that are simply not found elsewhere.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
