Each month I get the magazine and each month a disk is supplied with lots of programes "from the magazine" Some are self explanatory but how can I establish what they others are all about without loading? Examples this month are...Strokelt, Konfabulator Activicons..etc etc.I have no idea what they are all about!

put the disc in the computer. click exit when it auto starts. press the windows key+E for win Explorer go to CD drive click on little + to expand the folders keep doing this on + look for read me files etc and double click on them to read, you will get these and similar in most programs

Within the same folder you should see a .exe file or setup file, double click this to load the program. It may be a zip file, most are self extracting

woodchip... Yes, investigating via Win Explorer works in some cases, but there a still many that cannot be identified and only the setup programme is shown. Unless you use the setup prog. to load the programme on to the cptr. you cannot tell what it does.

"from the magazine"

exactly as stated read the magazine,

the programs/files will be mentioned in the mag. often as part of answers in the Here's How- Help section

Fruit Bat /\0/\....No they are not, only 8 have a write up. And they are the main "free" programes mentioned on the CD and front of the Mag.
