Windows 8 Skin Pack
Use 8 Skin Pack to get the look of Windows 8

A skin pack is a great way to give your computer a completely new look without the need to fiddle with endless settings or designing your own icons and backgrounds. Rather than having to go to the trouble of using one tool to change your icons, another to change your desktop theme and yet another to apply other tweaks, a skin pack represents a great way to give Windows a serious makeover with very little effort.

8 Skin Pack enables you get the look of Windows 8 by installing a new desktop theme, changing your desktop wallpaper and installing a new set of icons. But it does not end there. The skin pack goes a great deal further, enabling you to work with a completely new Start menu and feel the benefit of some of Windows 8’s new visual effects.

There’s also a new boot screen and login screen, a customized version of Windows Explorer and much more to work with. The skin pack gives you the opportunity to try out the new Metro interface of Windows 8 without the need to replace your existing copy of Windows with the developer preview or fiddle with virtual machines.

It is worth noting that the installation of the Skin Pack includes the Incredibar toolbar as standard. If you would prefer not to install this, take care to select the Custom Installation options at the start of the setup routine as this will enable you to deselect all of the options relating to Incredibar. It is also worth noting that this is an online version the installer which will check online to ensure that you have the latest version of the pack. There are 32- and 64-bit versions of the software available, as well as a special version for Windows XP user, so take care to install the version that is most appropriate for your system.

Verdict:

If you don’t want to install the developer preview of Windows 8, this is the perfect way to get the look of the upcoming operating system .

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.
