Fast Shutdown
Fast Shutdown

Do you find that it just takes too long to close down Windows. You need to close down all of the application windows you have open, open up the Start menu and find the Shut down option. If all of this sounds too much like hard work, the appropriately named Fats Shutdown could be just what you have been looking for.

This tiny, portable executable file can be used to shut down your computer with a minimum of fuss – just double click the executable and you’ll be shut down in a flash. To help make things even easier and faster, you can stick a shortcut to the app in your system tray for one-click access.

By default, Fast Shutdown will perform a ‘safe’ shutdown of your computer, but there’s also the option of performing a forced shutdown. The program has not UI, so in order to switch to this mode you have to get a little hands on and create a file called Fast_Shutdown.ini which contains the line force=y.

This is a program you will want to use with caution as you will not be prompted to save your work, but for those times when you just want to get out of Windows, it enables you to do so as quickly as possible.

Verdict:

A little risky, but possibly the fastest way to shut down Windows.

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.
