ultra bookWindows “Ultrabooks” are thin, fast competitors to the Macbook Air. They usually come with relatively small solid-state drives (SSD) that use the same technology as so-called thumb or flash drives. Typically they hold around 128 gigabytes. That’s not half as much as a typical Windows laptop, but there’s a way to extend it.

“Windows Application Mover” lets you move programs — not just data — to another drive when your regular Ultrabook memory is out of space. This is normally a tricky thing to do but this program makes it easy.

The program comes from PC Magazine’s “Utility Library,” and is free for anyone who paid $20 for a year’s worth of free downloads. Otherwise, it’s $8. We paid the $20 and have found several useful programs.
