Auslogics Windows Slimmer
Save space and remove unnecessary files from your Windows installation

If you have a lightweight laptop, chances are it might only have a small SSD, meaning that once you install Windows and your other applications, you don't have too much spare space. A 128GB SSD is fairly standard on entry-level laptops, meaning juggling space is an ongoing battle.

Of course, you could try storing data in the cloud, downloading only the relevant files when you are on the road, but this also relies on a steady internet connection and being able to access the cloud files (some firewalls may block access).

Another solution is a tool such as Auslogics Windows Slimmer, which will analyse your system, advise and remove a number of unwanted files. From the team behind the popular BoostSpeed software, Windows Slimmer is from a tried-and-tested company, meaning you should be able to trust the advice.

We analysed our own laptop to see what it could find. In the One-Time Maintenance section, we ran the suggested cans. Old Windows data was taking up over 3GB of space, whilst Windows Update files were taking nearly 400MB of our drive. In the Regular Maintenance section, nearly 1GB of space could be salvaged, whilst in the App List Cleanup it's easy to see how much space some of the largest installed applications take on our drive.

Windows Slimmer is a simple tool that will reduce the size of your Windows footprint. Even better, we found that after installation, we were offered a free Auslogics Bitreplica code, worth $29.95. But, be aware that you are also encouraged to install trial versions of other Auslogics software during installation and the installer will ask if you want to set Yahoo as your default web browser search engine. You can can easily decline.

- Resolved some user interface issues.
- Fixed some minor bugs.


Decent tool for reducing your Windows footprint, but just be careful of the files it attempts to install during installation.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.31

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.
