The context menu is a quick way to access functions in Windows without leaving the file or folder at hand. While the default options are useful, it’s when you add your own custom options and functions that make it phenomenal. We’ve seen this before in our guides which detailed the process of adding PowerShell to the menu and including shortcuts in the Send To menu. Another way to add custom functions is to use Context Menu Tuner.

To combat this problem, WinPenPack has put together different packages of portable apps to run from just about any portable USB drive. The applications are not some random
ISO Image files are great for a lot of reasons. When your computer doesn’t have an optical drive, you can use an ISO image on a portable drive to reinstall the OS. You can also use it to install various games and other software. Whatever the reason you are using an ISO Image file, they can be a chore to open. WinCDEmu gives you one click mounting for ISO Image files. WinCDEmu created a virtual drive for the image file. This means you can mount multiple ISO Image files at the same time.

Sometimes you need to hide a file. It may be a surprise birthday party invite list, a sensitive work document or even something a bit more nefarious. Whatever the reason, File Camouflage will do the trick. What happens when you camouflage a file is, the file you want to hide is masked as one of your existing picture.
