A dual-panel file manager for Windows

Saladin is a straightforward dual-pane file manager for Windows.

The program opens with two independent Explorer-type views on your file system, and both work just as you'd expect. Double-click files to open them; right-click to access the Explorer content menu, double-click folders to navigate through your drive; multi-select files with the keyboard, and drag and drop to copy or move files from one folder to another. You'll be using the program right away.

Tiny buttons to the right of each pane display a history and a simple bookmark tool. You're able to easily step back through folders you've accessed recently, or add the current folder to a Bookmark list for speedy recall later.

There's another bonus navigation feature in the ability to set a custom Home folder for each pane. If you always copy to a particular backup folder, for instance, you could make this the home for the right-hand pane, but use something else entirely on the left.

The toolbar displays buttons, text descriptions and (sometimes) a keyboard shortcut, again making it easy to understand how the program works.

The toolbar has View, Edit, Copy, Move and Delete buttons, for instance. These all work as described (multi-select files, hit Move to move them somewhere), but many have additional options. The Copy and Move function can copy files to the destination folder or clone them in the source; the View function supports viewing multiple selected images or plain text files; Delete can move files to the Recycle Bin, or delete them permanently.

There are bonus tools to open a console window at the current folder, pack files into a ZIP, run simple searches and - if all else fails - open and use Explorer, instead.


Saladin looks a little basic, and it doesn't quite always work as you'd expect (you can't multi-select files by dragging with the mouse), but overall it's a likeable file manager with some time-saving functions and features.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.11

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 2.19.11 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
