Le Dimmer 1.0.0.4
Automatically dim your entire desktop - apart from the active window

Le Dimmer is a tiny portable tool with a single, simple task: it automatically dims everything on your desktop apart from the active window.

The program is very straightforward to use. Just run it, and the dimming starts right away; launch another application and that one will appear, while the other is dimmed. It's all very easy.

And if you decide you don't like the effect, or just don't need it any more, right-click Le Dimmer's system tray icon and select "Quit".

If you do need a little more control, though, there's a useful command line switch. Give the program a number between 0 and 255 ("LeDimmer.exe 150") and you're setting the "dim factor". 150 is the default; increase this to darken the rest of the screen even further, or cut the value to reduce the dimming effect.

Make sure you check the Le Dimmer Readme.txt file for more on this and other useful details.

Verdict:

A quick and easy way to help you focus on the task in hand

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.
