My Computer Manager
Add shortcuts to Control Panel, This PC

My Computer Manager is a portable tool for adding files or folders to Control Panel or the My Computer/ This PC folder.

Launch the program and it first displays the details of your existing Control Panel applets. That's immediately interesting because it displays the command line used to launch them. You'll probably know Explorer's Folder Options dialog, for instance, where you tell Windows you'd like to view hidden and system files, please. My Computer Manager reveals that you can display the dialog from a shortcut or your own script by using this command (adapting the folder for your system, if necessary):

C:\WINDOWS\System32\rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\System32\shell32.dll,Options_RunDLL 0

My Computer Manager also allows deleting custom Control Panel or My Computer items you don't need. Beware, this is effectively deleting a shortcut only-- it'll remove the item from Control Panel or My Computer, but the original file will remain in place.

You're also able to add files or folders of your own to My Computer/ This PC, or Control Panel. You can specify the file, optionally a command line parameter and icon, much like creating a shortcut.

My Computer Manager can remove any of your custom options later, or you can do it from Control Panel by right-clicking the item and selecting Delete.

Verdict:

It's mostly useful as a Control Panel Manager, but whatever you're doing the program provides a handy way to understand and customise the Control Panel, My Computer/ This PC folders.

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
