cmder 1.1
Get more - much more - from the command prompt

Cmder is a tiny free software package (based on console enhancement tool "ConEmu" and Bash-like editor "clink") which extends the Windows command line in some very useful ways.

There's tab support, for instance. If you're working in two folders, there's no need to keep typing the full path; just press Ctrl+T to create a new tab with a second session. This can easily be launched as an administrator, or another user. Right-clicking any tab then reveals a host of interesting options: you can switch tabs to a separate window, close or restart them, take a screenshot, search for text, and much more.

You get plenty of helpful keyboard shortcuts. Shift+Up moves you up to the parent directory; Alt+Enter toggles full screen on and off; Ctrl+' sends cmder to the taskbar, and brings it back; and Ctrl+Alt+2 launches PowerShell, which of course then also benefits from the other cmder features.

The real power here is probably the line editor, though. Editing text in cmder works much as it does in any other Windows applications; you can press Ctrl+V to paste from the clipboard, say, or Ctrl+Z to undo. And there are many more advanced command completion, editing and history tools waiting to be discovered.

Verdict:

There's very little new here, as cmder is really just repackaging ConEmu and clink. It's a good package, though, and if you're not already using those tools then cmder will be a quick and easy way to improve your command line experience.

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.
