When you have temporarily finished with an app, you probably minimize it so that it is still accessible for when you need it again, but is not taking up space on your desktop. If you have a large number of program running, it is easy for your taskbar to fill up with countless buttons and this can make it difficult to identify individual items when you need to access them.

RBTray Portable is a free portable app that can be used to minimize programs you are not currently using so they appear in the system tray rather than the taskbar. This is a simple tool with no fancy option; it has one task to do and that is all it does.

There is no program interface to work with, and little or no indication that you have the application running. In order to minimize an app – or indeed an Explorer window – to the system tray, you simply need to right click on a window’s regaulr minimize button, that’s all there is to it.

RBTray Portable is not compatible with every single program you may be running, but in test we found that it was compatible with everything we threw at it. Accessing the programs you have minimize in this way takes nothing more than single clicking the system tray icon. A great tool to add to your USB drive.

Verdict:

Deceptively simple, this is a very useful tool that provides a useful way to manage open windows.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.71

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.71

- Group admins can now choose to allow only admins to send messages to a group. Open "Group Info" > tap "Group Settings". Non-admins will still be able to read messages and respond privately by tapping "Message Admin".
- You can now easily notify people when you change your phone number. Tap "Settings" > "Account" > "Change Number". You can select which contacts or chats you would like to notify.
