Prevent maximised windows from completely covering your screen

MaxMax is an easy-to-use tool that prevents maximised windows from fully covering the screen, which means you're able to leave a margin on the left, right, top or bottom.

This can be useful if, say, you want to monitor some desktop gadget or similar tools, but find they keep getting covered whenever you maximise a window. You could always minimise it again, of course, or perhaps press Alt+Tab to switch tasks, but with MaxMax running this doesn't have to be a concern at all.

By default the program leaves a 160-pixel margin on the right-hand side of the screen. If that's not suitable for you, though, right-click the icon, select Configure, and tweak the settings to suit your needs. 

In our experience this all worked very well, but if you have problems with particular applications then that also doesn't have to be a major issue. By pressing a user-definable hotkey (left shift by default) you're able to disable the program temporarily, and so fully maximise whatever other apps you might happen to be using. And MaxMax also provides an Exclusions list where you can name any processes you'd like it to ignore; these will be allowed to maximise as normal.


MaxMax is a simple and straightforward way to get a little more control over how windows are maximised on your PC

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.
