OpenWith Enhanced 1.15
Easily discover which programs can open any given file type

OpenWith Enhanced is an interesting Windows extension which helps you to find new applications that can handle a particular file type.

You might have downloaded a file, for instance, only to discover that none of your programs can open it. So what will? Right-click the file, select Open With or Open With > Choose Default Program, and the standard window will appear - with a few OpenWith Enhanced additions.

This time you won't only see applications on your system which can open the file type. After a few seconds, OpenWith Enhanced also displays the most popular applications selected by previous users of the program, which can also successfully open these files. And so when we right-clicked a PDF, for example, we didn't only see Adobe Reader; OpenWith Enhanced also displayed icons for Foxit Reader, SumatraPDF, Nitro PDF, Slim PDF Reader, and more. Hovering your mouse cursor over an icon tells you more, and double-clicking opens a browser window at the relevant program download page.

The OpenWith Enhanced choices are generally very good. Use "Open With" on an image, for instance, and you'll be presented with options including Photoshop, Irfanview, Picasa and XnView: there's something for everyone here.

And just in case that's not enough, OpenWith Enhanced provides a few other bonus options, making it easy to search the web for file types, remove this particular file association, or edit it's "Open With" menu options.

Verdict:

OpenWith Enhanced is a good idea, well implemented, and an easy way to discover how to open particular file types

Useful Program

Does what it says it'll do, and does it well.
Not only does it provide useful suggestions, it can be used to add Windows 7-style Open With to Windows XP systems as well.

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.
