Easy Context Menu
Add useful options to Explorer's right-click menus

Easy Context Menu is a compact portable tool which adds useful options to various Explorer right-click menus.

The program opens with a list of the various options you can apply to the desktop context menu. These include "Delete Temporary Files", "Copy IP" (copies your current IP address to the clipboard), "Reduce Memory" (free up RAM), "Show or Hide File Extensions", and "Fix Print Spooler" (get your printer working again if a print job is "stuck").

Adding any of these options is as easy as clicking a checkbox. You can apply your changes in a click, and they should be visible immediately, no need to reboot: you'll be able to (for example) right-click the desktop and select "Delete Temporary Files", rather than manually launching some other tool to do this for you.

File and Folder menus have optional tools of their own. "Take Ownership" gives you the permissions necessary to access something; "Open with Notepad" provides an easy way to get a quick view of a file; "Block In Windows Firewall" and "Remove In Windows Firewall" helps to customise how applications work with the Windows firewall.

Easy Context Menu can also create "System Tools" and "Turn Off Computer" menus with further options. "System Tools" launches your choice of Windows applets (Registry Editor, Device Manager, Network Connections and so on), while "Turn Off Computer" includes your choice of shutdown options: Sleep, Hibernate, Restart, Shut Down, Shut Down Force (close down even if documents are unsaved), and more.

Version 1.5 changes:
    [Fixed] – File location parameter error (in Items.ini) – Critical
    [Fixed] – List Editor’s Item rename Bug
    [Fixed] – List Editor’s Icon selection Bug
    [Fixed] – If you add a folder/file… (whose icon changed) to your context menu, Ec menu doesn’t recognize folder’s icon

Verdict:

The internet is packed with tutorials on how to manually add this or that option to your right-click menus, so nothing Easy Context Menu does is particularly surprising. The program does make it quick and easy to customise your system, though, and on balance it's a useful way to get a little more from your context menus.

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."
