Ultimate Settings Panel 1.0
Access key parts of your system from one convenient location.

Configuring parts of your system can be tricky, even if you know where to look. Windows 8 made things that bit trickier by ditching the traditional Start menu, so Ultimate Settings Panel aims to redress the balance by putting key system and selected software settings right at your fingertips.

Version 1.0 of the utility offers five tabs: Windows, General, Outlook 2010, Configuration (Manager) 2007 and Configuration (Manager) 2012, with more promised in future releases. For now, you’ll mostly be concerned with the Windows and General tabs.

The Windows and General tabs provides shortcuts to key Control Panels and more deeply buried tools like File History in Windows 8 or ODBC Admin in XP – there’s also a shortcut to "God mode", which basically puts every single Control Panel option at your fingertips. The Outlook 2010 tab offers some handy repair and management shortcuts like cleaning the auto-complete name and email address list or restoring missing folder to the default delivery location.

System administrators will also appreciate access to key Configuration Manager 2007 and 2012 options, such as opening the Client Applet or Software Center.

It’s all very simple to operate – the app is portable, so copy it somewhere convenient, double-click it (you may get a security warning or two, but the app is perfectly safe to use) and off you go. In this early state, you may find the app doesn’t really offer the shortcuts you’re looking for, but over time we expect it to evolve a whole lot more functionality, making it worth grabbing.

Verdict:

It may not yet be the "ultimate" settings panel, but this app shows plenty of promise and should improve as time goes on.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

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.
