Shortcut Search and Replace
Search for, delete or repair broken shortcuts

Shortcut Search and Replace is an interesting tool which can track down, delete and even repair broken shortcuts.

Is your Start menu cluttered with shortcuts which no longer work, for instance? Click the "User Start Menu" and "Common Start Menu" buttons, then click "Search Dead Links" and the program will scan for shortcuts which point to files which no longer exist. You'll get a full report in just a few seconds, and can then delete them all in a click.

Sometimes you may have broken some shortcuts yourself, though, perhaps by moving a set of portable applications. Normally you'd have to repair each shortcut manually, but here that's no longer necessary; just enter the old path in the Search For box, the new one in the Replace With box, and again, the program will process them all in a click.

But if you need to take manual control occasionally, that's not a problem, Shortcut Search and Replace allows that, too. Simply right-click any shortcut and select Properties to see the regular Windows properties dialog, where you're able to tweak whatever setting you need.

As a bonus, the program is also portable, so there's no installation required and it can be safely run from a USB flash drive on any convenient PC. And it's open source, too, so if you're a developer then the original source is C++ freely available from the author's site.

Version 1.6.14:
   - Bad icon display for shortcuts on known document types bug solved (Bug introduced in 1.6.13 version by some optimizations)

Verdict:

The interface isn't always as intuitive as we'd like, but once you understand what's going on then Shortcut Search and Replace becomes an easy way to manage your shortcuts.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.51

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 2.17.51

• When typing text in a chat, you can tap and hold to select the text and easily bold, strikethroughor italacize it.
