Stuffit Expander 2011
Stuffit Expander 2010 can handle almost any compressed file format you throw at it

Although ever-increasing hard drive sizes mean that disk space is rarely an issue any more, files are still frequently compressed. This is generally for one of three reason - downloads, emails or backups. Even though a large proportion of people connect to the internet with an ADSL connection, compressed files are often made available for download in a bid to reduce server traffic.

When emailing files to people, it makes sense to compress files to reduce the overall size of the attachment, which speeds things up for both the sender and the recipient. When backing up files, compressing files means that they take up as little room as possible.

In order to access the files stored in compressed archives, a decompression or extraction tool is needed, and this is where Stuffit Expander comes into play. The program is capable of extracting more than thirty compressed formats including the ever popular zip file.

The simple drag and drop approach means that extraction is made as quick and easy as possible. Whether you have opted to use Firefox or Safari, Stuffit Expander works well with your web browser to allow for seamless extraction of downloaded files. With great perform and wide format support, this is an essential tool.
 

Verdict:

With Stuffit Expander installed there's no need to worry about the format of compressed files you receive - the program will be able to handle it.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
