CodeTwo QR Code Desktop Reader 1.0.0
Quickly read QR Codes on the Windows desktop

CodeTwo QR Code Desktop Reader is a simple tool which allows you to work with QR Codes on your PC.

QR Codes? They're the characteristic blocks of square dots which you'll often see on ads, websites, packaging and more. Mobile phones can interpret them with ease (once you've figured out the appropriate app to use, anyway), and QR Code Desktop Reader now brings the same ability to Windows.

The program makes it easy to grab a code from your screen, for instance. If you see one within your browser, say, switch to QR Code Desktop Reader, click "From screen", draw around the code, and the program will display whatever text it contains.

QR Code Desktop Reader can also open and read QR Codes stored in all the main graphics formats (BMP, GIF, PNG, JPG, TIFF).

And whatever text the code contains may then be copied to the clipboard, or saved to a file, with a click.

It's mildly annoying that such a very simple program (just a single executable, essentially) requires installation. Making it portable would have been more convenient.

We can't complain too much, though: QR Code Desktop Reader is free, easy to use, and a very handy addition to any desktop, and that's good enough for us.

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.
