BWMeter
Monitor and control your network and internet traffic

BWMeter is an extremely versatile network tool that can work as a bandwidth meter, monitor, traffic controller and even a firewall.

You could use it just to monitor your network or internet traffic, for instance. Simple graphs reveal your current LAN and internet use, and the program also maintains daily, weekly, monthly and yearly statistics of your network use.

BWMeter can also help to control your traffic by setting speed limits for various connection types, or connections to particular internet sites.

A firewall blocks programs from using your internet connection until they've received your permission. By default, this alerts you with a really annoying blaring siren sound, but this does at least mean you won't miss the message, and you can change the sound, or switch to silent mode if it's a hassle.

And a comprehensive settings dialog means you can customise just about every other aspect of how BWMeter works, too.

So you can choose which network interfaces to monitor. User-definable filters allow you to define how you measure and visualise bandwidth use. You can set up alerts to perform particular actions when, say, your download bandwidth use reaches a particular figure. And there are options to customise the bandwidth graphs, choose how statistics are collected, decide how BWMeter's system tray icons will function, and a whole lot more.

Version 8.2.0 (version history):

- New: Visual Studio 2019 recompilation for better compatibility to new systems
- New: adjustments for the latest updates of Windows 10

Verdict:

It's arguably a little expensive, but BWMeter's lengthy list of features and configuration options mean there's a lot on offer here, and if you'll use the bandwidth monitor, speed control and firewall then overall it's still a good deal

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.
