If you are making a PowerPoint presentation, poster, graphic, or anything that requires typography, you may find some of these fonts useful. There many free fonts out there but it is often hard to find good ones as there is so much choice and so many fonts are not very high quality. In these collections, I attempt to find the best free fonts out there and provide direct download links to them so you can start using them straight away. If you are unsure of how to install a font, learn here.

Happy Holidays from mintywhite.com

Happy holidays everyone! I wish you the happiest holiday season and new year; may you have a wonderful time with family and friends :)

I’m unavailable until January 4th, 2010 as I take some time off work, get one year older on my birthday, and work on the site for 2010. I’ll get back to you all then, so keep the comments coming and be sure to keep the conversation going on Windows Forums.

Here are some Christmas links for you:

PROS: This program works well and I didn’t find any bugs at all. My screenshots below show what kind of a difference can be made by using this software.

CONS: Untested on 64-bit (I didn’t try it as my only 64-bit machine is not for testing–it needs to be up 24/7.) Price is a little high, but still great value if you have a need to organize your context menu.

VERDICT: This program does what it says on the box: it organizes your right-click menu and helps you access what you need with ease. The Pro version is reasonably priced, although $20 is always a sweet spot for me with tools like this. I recommend the pro version in support of the developers who’ve worked hard to make this great tool.

PRICE: Free (Pro $26.)

VERSION REVIEWED: 1.37
