Windows 8 App Remover 0.55
Wave bye-bye to unwanted Microsoft apps with Windows 8 App Remover 0.55.

Let’s be blunt: the Modern UI portion of Windows 8 and its immediate successors has not exactly been popular. But even if you’re a fan (or can at least stomach splitting your time between the Start screen and traditional Windows desktop) you may be frustrated at the number of apps Microsoft pre-installs alongside Windows 8.

In most cases, you can happily ignore these, but what if you want rid permanently? Or want to build a Windows 8 or 8.1 installation image that doesn’t include them by default? You could use Windows’ own command-line tool, dism.exe, but for a simpler, more pleasant experience, install this portable tool instead, which basically acts as a graphical front end for the dism.exe tool.

Once downloaded, simply double-click the tool to launch it. If you simply want to remove apps from your current Windows installation - which needs to be brand new (no updates installed) - then leave Online selected under Image to edit, then pick your version of Windows – 8, 8.1 or 8.1.1 (Windows 8.1, Update 1) from the drop-down menu. Finally, click List Apps and the greyed out list of apps will update to allow you to select some or all of them for removal. Once done, just click Remove Apps. Job done.

You can also use Windows 8 App Remover to strip these unwanted components out of a Windows compressed .wim file. Select the file, pick an empty folder to mount it to and then click Mount .wim. Once done, list the apps as before, remove those you don’t want and finally click Unmount .wim, which will convert the changed folder back into a new compressed .wim file you can subsequently convert into a bootable disc armed with the right software. However, for the average user it’s best employed as a tool for removing unwanted apps immediately after installation.

Verdict:

Windows 8 App Remover does the job simply and without fuss – a good option for removing unwanted Microsoft apps from your new Windows 8 PC.

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.
