Connectify Hotspot
Turn your computer into a wireless hotspot

Connectify Hotspot is a tool which quickly turns your PC or laptop into a wireless hotspot, making your internet connection available to other devices.

Getting started is easy. Choose the network connection to share, enter a password (make it a good one if you're in a public area), click "Start Hotspot", and you're done.

Within seconds a "Connectify-Me" hotspot should be visible to other wireless devices. Pass your password to their users and they'll be able to connect.

A "Clients" tab lists everything using your hotspot. That's convenient as a quick security check, and you also get real-time stats showing their bandwidth usage and upload/ download speeds.

By default, Connectify launches when your PC starts and automatically restores its last state. If that's not what you need, the program can keep its hotspot running all the time, or only when you specifically turn it on.

There are assorted other low-level network settings for experts to explore, including UPnP support.

There's both a Pro and Max version of Connectify Hotspot which have additional features such as sharing 5G connections, a bridge mode and more.

What's new in 2019.1.2 (see release notes for more)?

- Fix for an error starting the hotspot on some 64-bit systems.

Verdict:

The latest editions of Windows can create a wireless hotspot on their own, no third-party software required. Connectify does make the process easier, though, and bonus features like viewing any connected clients are also handy.

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.
