DesktopSnowOK 2.51
Give your desktop a touch of winter magic in seconds

DesktopSnowOK is a tiny tool which can add soft, fluttering snowflakes to your desktop in a click.

Despite being only a 78KB executable, DesktopSnowOK is highly configurable. There are twelve flake styles to choose from, for instance, covering everything from tiny orbs to chunky full-sized flakes. And a host of other options (soccer balls, base balls, tennis balls and more) ensure the program will be useful - if that word really applies here - all year long.

You can also choose the number of flakes you'd like on screen at any one time, their transparency, and how quickly they should fall.

And while DesktopSnowOK isn't a Windows screen saver, you can produce a similar result by setting "Deactivation" to "If pressing a key or mouse events". Leave your PC for a while and the snow will start to fall; come back, start typing or moving the mouse and the flakes will disappear again.

If you're thinking this isn't exactly the most useful program ever, then you've probably got a point. DesktopSnowOK is portable, though, so perfect if, say, you'd simply like to add a little temporary Christmas cheer to your desktop. Just download it, run the executable to apply its wintry effects, and delete the file when and if you've had enough.

Version 2.51 brings:

- Verification, validation, and further tests of the Desktop-Snow-OK. for / under Windows 8.1. 

Verdict:

A surprisingly configurable and fun little winter addition to anyone's desktop

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.
