Extend the capabilities of Windows Explorer with KO Approach

For many people, Windows Explorer is all that they know and they become used to the various quirks that can sometimes make it annoying to use. Other people give up on the program entirely and seek out alternatives. But there is a third way, and this is something that is provided by KO Approach, and add-on for Explorer that can help to greatly speed up navigation.

The application makes it possible to access your folders from almost anywhere thanks to a highly customisable menu system. This works in much the same way as the familiar context menu that appears when right clicking, but in this case it is activated with a long left click. You can then use the menu that is displayed to navigate through the contents of your hard drive without the need to launch Explorer.

Another option is to activate 'approach' feature which enables you to access the same menu from the KO Approach notification area icon. The final option is to make use of titlebar menus. As you might deduce, this type of menu can be accessed from the titlebar of any program - all you need to do is hold down Ctrl while left clicking.

The different methods of browsing through your folders can be used in different ways. For example, you can use the notification area icons to access your most frequently used folders, while the other two menus can be used to browse through the entire contents of your drives. It is also possible to add extra shortcuts to programs and web sites to make the utility even more useful.

An important feature of KO Approach is it support for plugins. There are a number of free plugins available and these enable you to extend the capabilities of the program in a number of ways such as adding file previewing and copying information to the clipboard.

Verdict:

An interesting alternative to Explorer alternatives - KO Approach sits happily alongside Windows' build in file browser and compliments it superbly.

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.
