Listary
Quickly navigate your files and folders with Listary

When it comes to searching for files, Windows’ own search utility is generally pretty effective, but Listary aims to make things even easier. The tool can be called up using a keyboard shortcut meaning that there is no need to explicitly launch the app, and it can be used to search any type of list, from lists of folders and files, to registry keys and much more.

Searching is performed in real-time, so as you type the first few letters of a file name or other item, suggestions will automatically appear ready for you to select. When performing searches, wildcards can be used if you are unsure of the precise name of what you are looking for.

Used straight out of the box, Listary is a useful and unobtrusive tool but you have the option of adjusting its on screen position and appearance. Whenever an Open or Save dialog is active, Listary is automatically on hand to enable you to quickly jump to folders without the need to manually navigate.

There is also a pro version of Listary available that includes a number of additional features. Listary Pro allows you to configure a list of favourite folders so they can be quickly accessed with a couple of key strokes – as Listary’s autocomplete also kicks in when you are typing, there is often no need to type more than the first couple of letters of a folder name before it can be selected.

The pro version also features support for regular expressions, so your searches can be used to home in on text that contains a particular range of letters or numbers, and you also have the ability to export lists as CSV files that can be opened in spreadsheet software such as Microsoft Excel.

Version 4.23.1728:

•New: Search filters (Check Listary Options – Search for more information).
•New: Search Path now support drive letters.
•New: Export list content to Excel (.xlsx).
•New: Projects now supports Search Path.

•Improved: Huge Launch Apps and Projects performance improvements.
•Improved: Refine UI.
•Improved: Projects search results sorting.
•Improved: Change default hotkey to Win+G for Windows 8.
•Improved: Improve folder dialog support.
•Improved: Improve Total Commander Directory Menu support.

•Fixed: Default file name being replaced accidentally when using find as you type in a Save File dialog.
•Fixed: Wrong working directory for executables.
•Fixed: Minor bug fixes.

Verdict:

A great time saving tool both in terms of file searches and folder navigation, Listary is an essential utility for power users.

Unreal Engine 4.8

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."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
