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

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."
