Sparrow 1.6.3
Sparrow offers a great way of keeping in touch with Gmail

Email programs are continually evolving, adding new features and redesigning themselves to keep pace with the competition. Over time, they can find themselves bloated and over-complicated to use – after all, the main purpose of an email program is simply to read, compose and reply to email. You could, of course, collect your email through your browser using a web-based account like Gmail or Hotmail, but that’s almost too much effort too.

This is where Sparrow comes in. This program aims to give you a clean, clear and uncluttered interface for reading your mail: it displays all your mail in a single, narrow window, with all the controls you need provided as a row of buttons across the top of the window (for composing, replying, archiving and deleting) and a further row of buttons down the left-hand column for navigating and managing your inbox.

You have two options for viewing messages: you can enable the preview pane as shown in the screenshot, or double-click a message to open it in a new window if you wish to keep the interface clear and uncluttered.

A free Lite version is also available, which supports only one email account and be ad-supported.

The brand new Sparrow 1.6.3 ships with these new features/fixes:

- improved performance when loading huge conversations
- URL in subject can be clicked
- date and subject in headers can be selected
- improved avatar in message cells
- improved IMAP compatibility
- brazilian localization
- fixed progress indicator in message view
- fixed crash when loading some HTML messages
- fixed crash with POP accounts fixed

Verdict:

It may sport a minimalist interface, but Sparrow has all you need for streamlined email checking – only downside is that it’s currently Gmail-only.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
