Take a closer look at exactly what any given Windows process is doing with this compact low-level system tool

ProcessThreadsView is an interesting tool which provides a great deal of information about the threads of any process you might choose.

On launching the program you'll be asked to choose a particular process of interest. Select one and ProcessThreadsView will display a table containing all its threads, and details including the thread ID, number of context switches, thread status, the user and kernel time it's consumed, the time each thread was created, and more.

So is this just the Threads tab from Process Explorer, then? Not quite. One notable difference is that ProcessThreadsView displays strings held in the stack data of any selected thread, and if you're trying to figure out what that thread is doing, or why it's behaving in a particular way (if it's locked up, for instance) then that can be very interesting. Browsing various threads for Skype.exe, for instance, revealed prompts, file names, Registry keys, URLs, database queries and a whole lot more, invaluable for low-level research.

Despite its name, though, ProcessThreadsView isn't solely about reporting on your system. You also get the option to suspend and resume selected threads at a click. Exercise this ability with care, though - choosing the wrong thread could lock up the process or crash your entire PC.

Version 1.27:

Fixed the 'Creation Time' column in 'Choose Process' window to display the date/time in local time (Instead of GMT).
Added 'Align Numeric Columns To Right' option.

Verdict:

ProcessThreadsView is yet another interesting free tool from NirSoft, delivering valuable low-level system information that is difficult to obtain any other way.

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.
