RecentFilesView 1.20
View the list of recently opened files on your PC

RecentFilesView is a small portable tool which displays the files recently opened by Explorer (anything double-clicked, or opened via a standard Open dialog box) as recorded in the Registry, and the "Recent" folder.

Launch the program and a table displays its full report. You'll see each file name, its modified, created and last executed times, where the record is held (the "Recent" folder or Registry), and whether the file is still located on your PC.

The table may be sorted by clicking any column header. Click "Execute Time", say, and the files will be sorted in the order they've been accessed.

RecentFilesView has the usual NirSoft options to save its data as an HTML or TXT report, for easy reference later.

A command line interface gives you further options. You could have the program automatically save its data in the background whenever your PC starts, perhaps, making it less likely you'll miss anything important.

RecentFilesView isn't necessarily about monitoring other people, however. If you're looking to maintain your privacy then you can use the program to selectively remove records you'd rather no-one else saw. Just choose them in the list, and press Del.

Verdict:

If you need to see what others are doing on your PC then the easiest route is to open the Recent Items folder yourself (C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent). RecentFilesView does include extra information, though, and provides various reporting options, making it a useful monitoring tool.

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.
