ShortcutsMan 1.10 (32-bit)
View, fix or delete your system's broken shortcuts

ShortcutsMan is a very lightweight and portable tool which can help you to detect and fix your PC's broken shortcuts.

Launch the program and it'll scan your Start menu, desktop, Quick Launch toolbar and other areas, listing all the shortcuts it finds. And this is useful in itself, because it displays a lot of detail. For every shortcut you'll see its name, link, any command line arguments, the opening window style (normal, minimised, maximised), the hotkey (if any), location, date, any custom icon, and more.

Even more usefully, though, the program highlights any shortcuts which are broken. And you can scroll the report to view these individually, or click the "Broken Shortcut" column header to sort by that field and group them all together,

If your system has some broken shortcuts then you can select one or more of them yourself, or right-click the report and choose "Select broken shortcuts" to select them all. And then you can either delete all the selected items, or ask the program to resolve them (search for the target file and update the shortcut accordingly).

This final option seemed oddly inconsistent when we tried it, fixing some broken shortcuts immediately, failing with others (even when they pointed to the same files). Still, even without this feature, ShortcutsMan is a useful way to find out more about the shortcuts on your system.

Verdict:

ShortcutsMan is great for exploring your shortcuts and deleting any that are broken, not always so good when trying to resolve them

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.19

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.
