Microsoft Location Finder
Turn your laptop into a GPS-type device without having to purchase extra hardware. Microsoft Location Finder is a client-side application that turns a regular WiFi enabled laptop, Tablet, or PC into a location-determining device without the addition of any separate hardware. When launched by a user, Microsoft Location Finder uses WiFi access points -- or reverse IP lookup when WiFi is not available -- to center and display the person's location on a Windows Live Local, enabling the user to quickly and easily search in their present location.
USB Flash Drive Manager
The Microsoft USB Flash Drive Manager will help you backup and restore presentation, pictures, songs and applications from and to USB Flash Drive devices and take them with you. The application can also help you to classify and name USB Flash Drive images (for instance, "My network configuration" or "The pictures for my grandma") and lets you see this name whenever the USB Flash Drive is plugged into the computer.
