DeskIntegrator 1.0.0.3
Launch programs from the desktop right-click menu

DeskIntegrator is a small tool which helps you to launch programs directly from your desktop right-click menu.

You can already place shortcuts on your desktop, of course, or pin them to the taskbar. But if you like to keep your desktop uncluttered then that might not be so appealing. So as an alternative, DeskIntegrator can add one or two of your most frequently-launched programs to the desktop context menu. And in future, launching them will be as easy as right-clicking the desktop and choosing whatever application you need.

The program is portable and straightforward to use. Launch it, enter the name of your application in the Title box, and the location of its executable in "Path". You can optionally choose where it should appear in the menu (top, middle or bottom), as well as adding a custom icon. But otherwise, just click Add/Modify and the item will be added immediately - right-click an empty part of the desktop to see it.

Changed your mind? Click the "Remove Menu" tab and you're able to delete any of your menu customisations. You can also remove the standard Windows entries ("Screen resolution", "Gadgets" and "Personalize" in Windows 7) and anything added by third-party applications, making DeskIntegrator also useful as a way to clean the context menu. Be careful, though - there's no "are you sure?" check, and if you delete a menu entry by mistake, DeskIntegrator has no way to bring it back.

Verdict:

An easy way to launch 3 or 4 favourite applications, without tying up valuable desktop or taskbar space

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."
