Microsoft Outlook 2010
Outlook 2010’s Conversation View helps to bring order to a chaotic inbox.

When it comes to email, Microsoft Outlook has long been considered the choice for professionals and business users. It’s one of the jewels in Office’s crown, and that’s before you consider its other capabilities as a general tool for organising your life.

Outlook 2010 finally adds the full ribbon interface to Outlook, and does so in such a way as to help make it easier to stay top of the ever-increasing volume of email that appears in your mailbox. It’s now possible to condense, categorise or even ignore entire conversations with a few clicks. The new Conversation view helps you manage an overloaded inbox by organising it into just a few relevant conversations. Two other new tools – Mail tips and Quick steps – also help speed up the way you navigate your mail folder.

If you have multiple email accounts set up, you’ll be glad to know you can now combine them all into one single, easily accessible view – the same is true for calendars and address books. A new Schedule View also allows you view multiple calendars from Outlook, Windows Live and other shared calendars using a single horizontal display.

New easy-to-access contact cards, which segue in with IMessenger-compatible apps like Windows Live Messenger, give you an at-a-glance view of a person’s availability, or you can get a more detail viewed of someone using the new Outlook Social Connector, which doesn’t just provide a recent history of your dealings with that person, but links in with other social networking platforms including Windows Live and SharePoint 2010 to provide updates about that person and links to their colleagues and friends.

Finally, as with all Office 2010 apps, the File tab on the ribbon provides access to the new Backstage view – in Outlook it’s your one-stop shop for managing your accounts, inboxes and more.

Note that there is no trial version of Outlook 2010. You can try the Office 2010 suite.


If your inbox is becoming unmanageable than Outlook 2010 has much to offer, along with a much better, more streamlined ribbon compared to the halfway house adopted in Outlook 2007.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
