Chrome Remote Desktop
Chrome Remote Desktop makes it easy to give remote help using your web browser

Giving help to someone can be tricky, particularly when you are trying to help someone with a computer problem when you are not together. Giving advice over the phone can be frustrating and you are reliant on the other person to describe the problem and explain what is going on. One solution to this is to make use of a remote access tool, and that is exactly what Chrome Remote Desktop is.

Unlike most remote access tools, Chrome Remote Desktop is a browser extension. As you might expect, it can only be used with the Chrome web browser, but does allow you to view and control the desktop of another computer as if you were sat in front of it. Security is provided through the use of access codes to prevent unauthorised access.

The beauty of the Chrome Remote Desktop is that it can be used on Windows, Mac and Linux providing the browser and extension are installed on the computers involved, and for beta software this is incredibly stable. It is slightly annoying that there has to be someone sitting in front of each machine in order to renter the necessary code and grant access, but it is still wonderfully useful.

It is a shame that there is not the option of accessing your own computer remotely – such as when you are away from home and need to access a file you forgot – but the tight integration with Chrome means that this is a value tool for problem fixing and diagnosis that can be used from almost any computer with an internet connection.

Verdict:

An incredibly easy to use remote access tool that will not replace the likes of VNC, but it is a valuable utility nonetheless.

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.
