This utility is designed for Professional Presenter, Speakers and Instructors and Online Course-ware Developers (Mooks) to get quick access to common tools they use. 

This tool installs a "Presentation Apps" Context-Menu accessible from you Windows Desktop that contains the following handy shortcuts too; 
  • Calculator
  • Control Panel Properties to Mouse, Sound, and Display (to extend it)
  • Magnifier (to zoom in on parts of the screen, during presentation)
  • Snipping Tool (create presentation, capture portions of screen)
  • Problem Steps Recorder - annotate full screen captures 
  • Screen Recorder - Record screen into a movie using free Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 Screen Capture - you must first install Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 with Service Pack 1 (SP2) free version records 10 mins at a time.
  • Window Media Player (play audio and video files)

This utility has the following features; 

  • works Windows 7,8, 8.1, Server 2012, 2012 R2 but only 64-bit version
  • adds link to Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 Screen Capture (must be installed)
  • comes with proper uninstaller located in "Add or Remove Programs" oops Programs and Features

Prerequisite (kinda)

Download and Install Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 with Service Pack 1 (SP1)
It's free from Microsoft and works on Windows 7,8,8.1, 2012, 2012 R2, with one caveat; the free version records only 10 mins at a time.  But it contains no malware, viruses, or bloatware (OpenCola, Conduit).

NOTE: If you don't install the Screen Recorder link will simply not work.

Install

Download file for Windows 7 (64-bit) and unzip PresentationAppsWin7.zip.

Download file for Windows 8+ (64-bit) and unzip PresentationAppsWin8.zip.
Simply, right-click onPresentationAppsWin(7or8).inf and click Install.





Confirm UAC Installation (click yes).

Done.


Confirm Install 

To test this now right-click on the Desktop and you see the new context menu "Presentation Apps" option!




Uninstall

The great thing about this inf file, is it creates a uninstall option.

Goto Programs and Features, and double-click "Desktop Presentation Apps Context-Menu..." to uninstall.


To remove this blog page (only) IE tab on start-up follow http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/change-home-page#ie=ie-11. I couldn't remove this key in the registry using inf.
