ShortcutsMan 1.10 (64-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

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."
