Explorer Toolbar Editor
Customise your folder toolbars with Explorer Toolbar Editor

Explorer is no different to other Windows applications in the way it includes toolbar that can be used to quickly access common options. As you are browsing through your files you will notice that depending on the type of folder you have selected, there are buttons on display that can be used to do everything from burning files to disc or adding them to a playlist to emailing them or changing sharing properties.

Explorer Toolbar Editor is a free tool that can be used to customise the buttons that are displayed in the toolbar - and it is possible to choose which buttons should be visible depending on which folder or library is selected. You can opt to apply the same toolbar to all folders and libraries, or you can take your customisation a step further and opt to use a different set of buttons for different types of folder or library.

The utility is handy for anyone who wants to streamline the Windows interface. If you find that your windows are cluttered up with buttons you never use, you can use the application to eliminate anything you do not need - should things change in the future, you can always revert back to the default settings.

Similarly, you may well be perfectly happy with the default selection of buttons that Microsoft has decided to include in the Explorer toolbar, but this does not necessarily man that you agree with the order in which they have been displayed. Using Explorer Toolbar Editor, you can easily change the order of toolbar buttons as well as adding and removing them so that Explorer can be perfectly tailored to suit the way you work.

Verdict:

A great customisation tool - it is surprising how much of a difference personalising the Explorer toolbar can make to the usability of Windows.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
