OutlookTools 2.3
Easily access advanced Outlook settings

OutlookTools 2.3 is a useful tweaking tool for Microsoft Outlook 2000, 2002/XP, 2003, 2007 and 2010.

At its simplest, you can use the program as a quick way to discover useful information. Do you know where Outlook keeps roaming and local data, for instance? What about the temporary folder where it opens attachments? There are probably leftover files there from previous Outlook sessions, but OutlookTools can delete them all in a click.

OutlookTools can apply many useful Outlook tweaks. Would you like the program to minimise to the system tray, for instance? One click will make it happen. Tired of the desktop alert for new mail? Shorten its duration here, or make the alert more transparent. Need to receive forbidden attachment types? Click the Blocked Attachments tab and select the files you'd like to allow (though be careful - this will compromise your security).

And if you're technically inclined, there's a lengthy list of 49 command line switches that will change how Outlook behaves, the next time it's started. If the program won't launch, for instance, use the /safe switch and it'll load without addons. The /cleanprofile switch can fix some Outlook Registry issues, /firstrun opens the program as though it's been launched for the first time, and there are plenty of other troubleshooting and management options to explore.

Verdict:

If you use Outlook, then grab a copy of OutlookTools, too. You won't use it every day - or even every month - but there's plenty of troubleshooting power here and it could be very useful in emergencies

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.
