DriveLetterView
Use DriveLetterView to more easily manage drive letter assignment in Windows.

Many computers now have two or more hard drives installed, and in addition to this, removable drive, media card readers and CD/DVD drives can means that when you open up Explorer there are a large number of drive letters listed. DriveLetterView is a free tool that enables you to take control of these devices and better manage drive letter that have been assigned to them.

In the case of memory card readers, it is common to find that even empty media slots are listed in Explorer and have been assigned a drive letter. When the time comes to copy files to a drive, it can be difficult to determine which is the one that you should be using. Using DriveLetterView you can opt to hide drives that are not being used and easily change drive letters to suite your needs.

Run in standard mode, the program can used to simply view a list of all of the drive letters that Windows has assigned to different drives. But opt to run the program as an administrator – just right click the program and select the Run As Administrator option – you can set about the task of changing drive letters and hide unwanted drives.

The program interface makes it easy to make the necessary adjustments, but power users can take advantage of command line parameters to create batch files to automate certain tasks. In reality, DriveLetterView does little that cannot already be achieved in Windows, but it makes the entire process so much easier. The option to create an HTML list of your drives also proves useful.

Version 1.46:

You can now send the information to stdout by specifying an empty filename ("") in the command-line. (For example: DriveLetterView.exe /scomma "" >> c:\temp\dlv.csv ) You can use it only inside command-prompt window.

Verdict:

A simple free tool that is a great supplement to Windows’ own drive management tools, and much easier to use.

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.
