USBDeview (64-bit)
Take control of your USB devices

USBDeview is a small tool that allows you to manage the USB devices connected to your computer.

Launch the program and you'll get a lengthy list of every device that's even been plugged in to your system, including its description, the device type (storage, webcam, audio and so on), driver name and more.

Right-click a USB drive, say, and you'll find an option to disconnect it, allowing you to unplug the drive safely. You're able to disable a device, just temporarily, if it's conflicting with other software or hardware. And if you no longer use a device, then right-click its entry, select Uninstall and Windows will remove its driver.

There's a Speed Test option that will benchmark the performance of your USB drives. This could be very handy if you're planning to use Windows ReadyBoost, for instance - it's important to pick the fastest drive you have.

And Windows experts will appreciate the right-click "Open in RegEdit" option, that launches the Registry Editor at the device entry you've specified, ready for manual editing. If you're not a Windows expert, though, be careful with this one - playing around with low-level Registry settings can seriously harm your PC.

Version 2.45 changes:
 

  • You can now choose to connect a remote computer or external Registry file from the 'Advanced Options' window (In previous versions, you could do it only from command-line)
  • Fixed to display an error message when USBDeview fails to connect a remote computer.
Verdict:

A handy mix of USB-related features, with the speed test being our favourite

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
