Snowy Night theme for Windows 7+
Dress your desktop with 13 spectacular winter wallpapers

Microsoft's Snowy Night theme is a collection of 13 background images, packaged as a Windows theme (a .ThemePack file for Windows 7+).

The package includes 13 beautiful snowy photos. Some are simple: a Christmas tree, a lantern in the snow. Others pull back a little, perhaps showing a cottage surrounded by trees. And there are gorgeous city shots of Scotland, Bulgaria and Canada.

Installation is easy, at least in theory. Download the file, open it, and the Windows Personalisation dialog should appear with your new theme. Select it to apply the default background, then change this to whatever you like.

If it doesn't open correctly, right-click the .ThemePack file and select Open With > Personalisation CPL to launch it manually.

And if you're still having problems - or you're using XP or Vista, but want to take a look anyway - just use your archive program to extract the .ThemePack's contents (7-Zip handles this well), and set your preferred wallpaper manually.

Verdict:

There's less variety here than in some themes, but the pictures are beautiful, and this is definitely a great way to welcome winter.

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.
