NetConnectChoose
Easily set your default internet connection

When you have multiple internet connections available on the same PC then it's not always clear which one Windows will choose. But if you'd prefer one connection to be used above the rest, then NetConnectChoose will help you set this as the default (and it'll give you lots of other useful connection-related details, too).

This is all very straightforward to use. There's no installation, just run NetConnectChoose to view your current network setup. Select your preferred connection, click File > Set as Default, and you're done - Windows should now choose that connection whenever you want to go online.

If life is a little more complicated, and you need to change the connection occasionally, click Options > Put Icon on Tray and close the main NetConnectChoose window. Right-clicking the program's system tray displays an option to switch the default connection, or you can open the main program window to take more precise control.

While this can be very useful in some situations, many people will never have to switch connection priorities at all. But even then NetConnectChoose can have some value, because of the details it provides about each connection.

Browse the table and you'll find your network adaptor's MAC address, for instance. The length of time the connection has been running. Its current send and receive data speeds; the number of bytes and packets sent and received; your IP address, default gateway, name servers and DHCP server; your MTU setting, interface speed and more.

Version 1.07:
    - Fixed bug: NetConnectChoose failed to remember the last size/position of the main window if it was not located in the primary monitor.

Verdict:

If you ever need to reset your default internet connection then NetConnectChoose makes it easy. And even if you don't, the sheer volume of connection stats mean it's still a useful portable troubleshooting tool

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.80

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 2.17.80

• Now you can delete messages you've sent by mistake. Just tap and hold a message you sent in the last 7 minutes, tap delete, and select "Delete for everyone." The message will be deleted for you and everyone in the chat. Requires the latest version of WhatsApp.
• Live location: now you can share your location in real-time with family and friends. Open any chat, tap the + icon > location, and tap "Share Live Location" to get started. 
• Fixed an issue that was preventing some message notifications from appearing on iOS 11.
