ScreenBlur 1.3.0.25
A very customisable Windows desktop lock screen

ScreenBlur is a free tool which can temporarily lock and hide the Windows desktop.

Launch the program and it adds an icon to your system tray. Right-click this, select "Lock", and an "Access Denied" message is displayed. Type the password you chose at installation and the desktop will reappear.

ScreenBlur can also lock your screen via a customisable hotkey, or when your computer has been idle for a specified period of time.

While there are similar tools around, ScreenBlur stands out for its many configuration options. You can have your applications hidden or minimised while the screen is locked, for example. The program can mute your sound. There's an option to avoid locking "on idle" if you're watching a full screen movie. If your computer has been locked for a specified length of time then you can have it sleep, hibernate or shut down. And you're able to change the interface colours, the fonts, even set a custom lock screen image.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use and exceptionally configurable lock screen

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."
