Snowy Night theme for Windows 7+
Dress your desktop with 13 spectacular winter wallpapers

Microsoft's Snowy Night theme is a collection of 13 background images, packaged as a Windows theme (a .ThemePack file for Windows 7+).

The package includes 13 beautiful snowy photos. Some are simple: a Christmas tree, a lantern in the snow. Others pull back a little, perhaps showing a cottage surrounded by trees. And there are gorgeous city shots of Scotland, Bulgaria and Canada.

Installation is easy, at least in theory. Download the file, open it, and the Windows Personalisation dialog should appear with your new theme. Select it to apply the default background, then change this to whatever you like.

If it doesn't open correctly, right-click the .ThemePack file and select Open With > Personalisation CPL to launch it manually.

And if you're still having problems - or you're using XP or Vista, but want to take a look anyway - just use your archive program to extract the .ThemePack's contents (7-Zip handles this well), and set your preferred wallpaper manually.


There's less variety here than in some themes, but the pictures are beautiful, and this is definitely a great way to welcome winter.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

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.
