MouseController 1.7.1.0
Record and replay your mouse actions

MouseController is a tiny portable tool (a 63KB executable) which can record your mouse movements and clicks, then replay them later.

Launching the program displays a basic but straightforward interface. By default pressing F9 starts to record your mouse actions, but you can change this to any other function key. Press your choice whenever you like to begin recording, then use your PC as normal, pressing the hotkey again to toggle recording off.

A "Start Playback" button tests your macro immediately, and worked well for us: the cursor moved around, repeating all our points and clicks without difficulty.

Your macro can be customised in various ways. MouseController can replay it at different speeds. There's an option to display the number of every click, as it happens, perhaps useful for demonstrations. You could automate some action by having MouseController repeat its macro every few seconds or minutes, or for a fixed number of times, and there's even an option to launch it from the command line via your own scripts.

This kind of mouse automation needs to be used with extreme care. MouseController doesn't know what it's clicking, and if your system changes before playback - there's a different screen resolution, other windows happen to be open - then anything could happen.

If you understand the risks and work to reduce them, though - perhaps maximising one program window and closing everything else - then MouseController works well enough, and may be able to help you automate some common tasks.

Verdict:

MouseController is a straightforward program for creating and replaying mouse macros, with far more functions and options than we'd expect for something of this size. Like all mouse recorders, it's not a very reliable way to automate PC tasks, but if you understand the risks then it may be able to help.

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.
