TaskbarPinner 1.1.0.0
Pin files, folders, libraries and more to the Windows 7 taskbar

Right-click a shortcut in Windows 7, click "Pin to taskbar" and it'll be copied to the taskbar, for easier access in future: great.

Right click a folder, though - or a file, a library, a Control Panel applet and more - and you'll find no such option. There are various manual workarounds you can try, but an easier solution is just to use TaskbarPinner, which allows you to pin just about anything you like.

The program arrives as a tiny download (236KB), just unzip this and launch the right file for you (even at this size, there are both 32 and 64-bit versions included).

The TaskbarPinner interface looks very much like a regular Windows 7 dialog, and it's very straightforward. You have four options - "Pin a File", "Pin a Folder", "Pin a Shell Location" and "Pin a Library" - and all you have to do is click one, choose whatever it is you'd like to pin, and you're done. (As usual, right-click and select "Unpin..." to remove anything later.)

Probably the most interesting option here is "Pin a Shell Location", as this gives you access to all kinds of system features (not just your own folders). So you can pin Control Panel applets, Windows Help, the Recycle Bin, Windows Search, the Run box and more.

And if you really like the program, then checking the "Explorer context menu" allows you to access it from Explorer, or the desktop. To pin a file, folder or drive to the taskbar, say, you'd just right-click them, select "Pin with Taskbar" and it'll be added right away.

Verdict:

TaskbarPinner is an excellent tool which makes it easy to access just about any system resource from your Windows 7 taskbar

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.
