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

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
