Arrange Your Desktop 2.1.0
Clean up your desktop with a click

If your PC is a permanent mess then Arrange Your Desktop may be able to help, by moving stray documents, images, executables and other files to their proper home.

Have you just copied a load of digital photos to the desktop, for instance? The program will create a desktop folder called "Pictures Files" (yes, really) and move them all there.

If you've a habit of downloading PDFs to your desktop then they'll be moved to a new desktop folder called "Documents Files". Videos on the desktop are sent to a "Video Files" folder, archives to a "WinRar & Zip Files" folder, and - you get the idea.

There are some odd deficiencies here. So while you might expect to be able to choose where, say, your images are moved (your Pictures folder would seem an obvious choice), this isn't actually possible.

And the program doesn't cover all common file types with its default settings. There's nothing for music files, for instance, although you can set up a single custom file type to cater for this.

Still, if your desktop is always completely full then Arrange Your Desktop might help you get just a little more organised.

Please note, the installer will by default install multiple browser toolbars and other "extras", using a variety of techniques to try and avoid your attention.

When we tested the program, for instance, we had to clear checkboxes to avoid these additions on a couple of pages, while clicking "Decline" on another. Pay close attention during the setup process, and if in any doubt, check Control Panel's list of installed programs when it's all over to confirm that you've only got what you expected.

Verdict:

While it's fairly simple (you could probably create a batch file which does more), Arrange Your Desktop is a quick and easy way to bring some order to your desktop

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
