KO Approach
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.

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
