Free Opener
Open PDF files, Office documents, images, music, video files and more with this universal file viewer

Free Opener is a comprehensive file viewer that allows you to open more than 75 file types: documents, videos and audio files, images and more.

Unsurprisingly, many of these are formats that you can view and play now, anyway: HTML, JPEG, PNG, WMV, AVI, MPG, ZIP, assorted plain text variants, and so on.

However, Free Opener can also handle many Office documents: DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, XLSM, PPTX, PPT, and PPS. Graphics support includes the ability to open Photoshop PSD files and many RAW file types. And it can also display email formats (EML, MSG), Flash animations (SWF), archives (7z, ZIP, RAR, GZ, TAR, TGZ, JAR), PDF files, even source code formats (VB, C, CS, JAVA, JS, PHP, SQL, CSS, ASPX, ASP).

The program isn't just a viewer: a few file types allow you to go just a little further. So if you open a RAR archive, say, then you're able to extract selected files, and after opening a PHP module you're able to edit it. The editing options are basic in the extreme - Windows Notepad provides more functionality - but this may still be useful.

Please note, Free Opener installs multiple components to assist in its work, including the K-Lite Codec pack and .NET Framework Client Profile. You don't have the option to install these or not, so if you'd rather keep complete control of the codecs on your PC then it's probably best to give this a miss.

Verdict:

The viewers may be limited, but Free Opener is still a very convenient way to open a host of common file types from a single application

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.
