Adobe Digital Editions 4.5.10
Easily view and manage your PDF and ePub eBooks

Adobe Digital Editions is a simple tool to help you manage and view your eBooks.

At a minimum you might want to use the program as a basic eBook reader. And this is easy enough. Just drag and drop your chosen file onto the program - PDF, PDF/A and EPUB formats are supported, as are eBooks with embedded SWF files - and it'll appear.

Reading is then fairly straightforward. There are a few basic viewing options, so you can display one or two pages on the screen at a time, increase or decrease text size at a click, and scroll through the book using your mouse or the keyboard. You get a simple text search tool, and the ability to create bookmarks on particular pages, and of course there's a print option, too. So we're not talking feature-rich here, but if you just want to read then there's enough to get by.

Adobe Digital Editions can also manage your eBooks, by maintaining them in its own library. Every time you drag and drop an item onto the program, it's added to the "All Items" bookshelf, which makes it easy to find and reload later. And you can also create additional bookshelves, then drag and drop eBooks to categorise them as you like: "Holiday Reading", "Sci-fi", "Favourites", whatever suits your needs.

And if you own copy-protected eBooks, then Adobe Digital Editions can help you to transfer them onto other computers or devices, so you can read your collection wherever you are.

What's new in 4.5.10 (see full release notes for more info)?

- TBC

Verdict:

It doesn't have the longest of feature lists, but if you just want to read then Adobe Digital Editions will probably be enough. It's also easy to use, and had no problem opening whatever PDF and ePub files we threw at it.

Windows 10 November 2019 Update ISO (build 1909)

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.

November 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 1090 which is the November 2019 Update.
