Duplicate cleaner is a useful program to help you organize the contents of your home hard drive or corporate network.

You’d be surprised just how many redundant or duplicate files you could find forgotten in an obscure documents folder. Duplicate Cleaner will deep scan for all types of files – photos, music, films/video, Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, text files – you name it, if it appears twice on your computer then Duplicate Cleaner will find it. Once these files are found you are provided with helper tools to enable you to select which copies to delete or move.These files can be deleted to the recycle bin, moved into an archive elsewhere, or replaced with hardlinks.

System Folders Customizer released

We are pleased to release System Folders Customizer, a free tool that lets you add Internet Explorer, important System folders, Control Panel applets to your Computer folder, Libraries and Desktop.

Many a times we need to access these folders and we have to click a couple of times to reach them. This tool will let you access them in a click, since they are placed in regularly accessed places like Computer folder, Libraries, etc.

 

We had earlier posted on how you could add the Recycle Bin to your Computer folder. You can now do so in a click using System Folders Customizer, since it lets you add many such shortcuts to your Computer folder, Libraries and Desktop.

To add the desired shortcuts, simple check the selected boxes and click on Save Changes. To undo the changes, un-check the boxes and click Reset Changes. You may have to restart explorer.exe to see the changes on the desktop.

While our Windows Access Panel let you access these  controls or the in-built Windows programs from a single interface and while our Handy Shortcuts lets you add such shortcuts to the desktop, System Folders Customizer goes a step further by placing their shortcuts in Libraries etc.

System Folders Customizer v1.0 has been developed by our 13-year-old TWC Forum member Paras Sidhu for The Windows Club and has been tested on Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit

Linux Kernel 3.0.0-rc1 Released

Linux creator, Linus Torvalds has released the 3.0.0-RC1 version of Linux kernel to mark the 20 years of Tux powered computing. Linus first released the 2.0 version of the Kernel about 15 years ago. The new release is surely going to make all Linux hackers and UNIX enthusiasts happy.

The 3.0 version adds support to Microsoft Kinnect – the gaming platform. Linus mentions in this email that the new Kernel code has been optimized for AMD Fusion and Intel Ivy & Sandy Bridge silicon. As expected, it also offers updated graphics drivers and some support for new hardware. The new Kernel is still in evolutionary stage and the new version was introduce to mark the beginning of the third decade. The OS has not been overhauled yet. There is lot of work that needs to be done and the RC needs some more refinement before its gold release.
