DeskTask for Outlook
Use DeskTask to view Outlook tasks and calendar to your desktop

DeskTask is a tool which displays your Outlook calendar and task list on your desktop. And so there's no need to launch Outlook to check your upcoming appointments any more - a glance at your desktop will tell you everything you need.

The floating transparent window can be placed anywhere on the desktop and there are various options available to customise its appearance and functionality (how frequently the display will be updated, the fonts used, transparency and so on).

DeskTask can display the contents of your Outlook Calendar and Tasks, and you get full control over these, too. So you might decide to monitor just the calendar, for example, and only if contains upcoming items. You get to choose the number of days the program will monitor (anything from 0 to 90). There's even an option to launch Outlook when you click on a particular item.

Please note, when we first launched the program it hung while collecting data, then displayed various error messages. Running it as an Administrator didn't help. But after restarting the system everything worked just fine, so we'd recommend you do the same, reboot after installation to reduce the chance of any problems.

Version 1.4 changes:
 - Added an option to show the calendar and tasks in the tray menu
 - Added na option to refresh the data when opening the tray menu
 - Clicking on the Header of Calendar and task Items with the shift key down executes the respective Outlook interface to create a new item
 - Main desktop window Visibility option is now preserved across sessions
 - Updated the priority icons to the latest version of Outlook

Verdict:

DeskTask makes it very easy to keep track of your tasks and appointments. A real time-saver

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.
