GPU-Z
Easily monitor your GPU load, temperature, fan speed and more

GPU-Z is an interesting system information tool that tells you everything you'll need to know about your graphics card and GPU. (Despite the name and appearance, it has no connection to the CPU-Z program.) And we do mean everything.

So you don't just get the basic details, like your graphics adapter model, memory driver and clock speeds. The program will also report on the GPU revision, die size and number of transistors. It'll tell you the DirectX version supported by the card, mention the type of RAM it uses, provide performance details like the pixel and texture fill rate, and highlight the driver version you're using, for example. (If you want to keep this information for reference later, the camera icon top-right will save a screenshot.)

GPU-Z also includes a handy monitoring section, that tracks details like your core, memory and shader clock speeds, GPU and PCB temperatures, fan speeds, memory use, GPU load, memory controller load and more, which could be very useful if you've overclocked your card and want to confirm that it's still stable.

And while the straightforward interface doesn't exactly look weighed down with options, the program is actually quite configurable. Check the arrow to the right of each attribute and you can tell GPU-Z to monitor it (or not), and whether you'd like to see the current, lowest, highest or average reading. And if you check "Log to file" then your temperatures, fan speeds and so on will be recorded for posterity, allowing you to exercise your card by running some graphically intensive process, and then find out exactly how your system copes under pressure.

Version 2.13.0 brings (see the changelog for more info):

Fixed missing fan speed sensors for pre-Turing cards using GeForce driver 400 and newer
Fixed some rare crashes during GPU-Z startup
Minimize on close will now trigger on "Close" button click, Escape key, ALT+F4. Use the tray icon menu to exit GPU-Z when "minimize on close" is enabled.
Screenshot button tooltip will no longer be visible in screenshots

Verdict:

This portable and easy-to-use monitoring tool can help you with many graphics problems, from discovering which BIOS version you have to checking for an overheating GPU

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 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 Windows 8 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.

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

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
