Clover 3.3.7
Add browser style tabs to your Explorer windows

If you find that you are having to work with multiple folders at the same time, you no doubt find it annoying to have to have multiple Explorer windows open. Just as web browsers now all support tabs so that it is possible to view multiple web sites within the same browser window, so Clover enables you to add much the same feature to Explorer – this is an add-on for Windows Explorer rather than a replacement.

There are a number of Explorer replacement tools that can be used to gain access to extra features such as a tabbed interface, but these have one fairly major down side. Most people access Windows Explorer using the Windows key and E keyboard shortcut, and as this is a reserved shortcut, it is not possible to assign it to other program – thus Explorer-replacement tools have to be launched using a different key combo.

This is not the case with Clover. Rather than being a replacement for Explorer, it is actually and add-on. This means that when you launch Explorer – be it by using a Start menu shortcut, a Quick Launch icon or the keyboard shortcut – you still gain access to these extra options. The big news in Clover is the existence of tabs, and these work precisely as you would expect.

Any folder you would normally have open in a separate Explorer window is now housed in its own tab. You can navigate between them in just the same way as in your web browser. The same keyboard shortcuts work with Clover – so you can press Ctrl and T to open a new tab – and there are also extra features such as the ability to create a toolbar filled with links to your most frequently used locations.

Version 3.3.7 brings:

- New Function:Open bookmarks in new windows.
- Improved:Realize login function through the return key.
- Fixed:Fail to add bookmark through dragging file/folder.
- Fixed:Unexpected crashes occur after dragging bookmarks.
- New Function:Open bookmarks in new windows. Improved:Realize login function through the return key. - Fixed:Fail to add bookmark through dragging file/folder. Fixed:Unexpected crashes occur after dragging bookmarks.

Verdict:

One of the best enhancements you will find for Explorer. It is simple, elegant and immensely useful.

The installer is Korean. I had to accept the default settings with no idea what they meant. Found it added too much to the registry for my taste.

I like the way it uses basic explorer and adds to it. I know hence called an add-on. :) The feature I miss the most is session handling like other explorer replacements do. I use CubicExplorer but have for now switched to this one. Thanks to the author.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.41

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.41

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
