Kingsoft Writer Free 2012
Kingsoft Writer Free 2012 is an impressive free word processor

Microsoft Word may well be the word processor that first springs to mind when thinking about office software, but there are plenty of alternatives to choose from. There is a growing number of free word processor available, and Kingsoft Writer Free 2012 is one such tool. For anyone that is familiar with Word, Writer is instantly recognisable and incredibly easy to use.

For day to day tasks, there are all of the usual formatting and styling options you would expect, and support for a wide range of popular file formats means that it is easy to slot the software into an existing workflow. The ability to save your documents as PDF files is a seriously useful option and there are a plethora of clipart images available to brighten up your documents.

When used in the office, or for work purposes, Writer includes a mail merge feature that can be used to quickly and easily create personalised letters and envelopes. There are also tools on hand that make it easy to create and adjust tables and the equation editor can be used to perform complex calculations with ease.

To help automate common tasks, you have the ability to create macros, and if you’re having trouble getting started, there are a range of templates to choose from. The fact that Kingsoft Writer is available completely free of charge, coupled with the fact that it includes pretty much everything you could ask for from Microsoft Word, it is well worth trying if you are in the market for a new word processor.

Verdict:

A competent word processor that is far more powerful and usable than many of the other free alternatives to Microsoft Word.

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.
