Windows 7 App Launcher
Start mulitple programs simultaneously with Windows 7 App Launcher

When you are working with Windows it is likely that you use your computer for a number of different tasks. When working you might need your word processor and web browser to hand, while when working with digital photos you will need a file browser and an image editor. While it is possible to launch each of these applications individually, Windows 7 App Launcher can save your time by enabling you to create shortcuts that can be used to launch multiple programs simultaneously.

To save you from having to constantly navigate the Start menu or cluttering your desktop with countless icons, Windows 7 App Launcher can be used to create shortcuts that are activated by a keyboard shortcut and can launch several applications at once. As an added bonus, the app itself is portable so you pop it on a USB drive and take it with you as you move from one computer to another.

Windows 7 App Launcher can be used as a desktop gadget, essentially providing you with an alternative to the Start menu when it comes to launching applications, but it is in its multi-app launching mode that it is most useful. While the app is undoubtedly useful, it can take some time to configure the various profiles you might need to turn it into an essential utility, but it is time well spent – you just need to try to cater for every circumstance.

Used with Windows 7, Windows 7 App Launcher makes great use of thumbnail previews. Hover your mouse over the taskbar button and you can use the popup that appears to navigate through and activate any of the various profiles you have set up.

Verdict:

Slightly awkward to set up, Windows 7 App Launcher is nonetheless a useful tool which could save you time and effort

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.
