Foxit Reader Portable
Open and manage your PDF documents with this lightweight reader

PDFs make the distribution of readable documents, easy. The key advantage of a PDF is that you can keep the layout, whilst embedding the fonts, images and other components. This means you can use an advanced desktop publishing tool, such as Quark, to layout a document, publish as a PDF and then distribute it to other users, irrespective of the computer they use.

Better still, PDF documents now enable us to use any design tool to create a document you can then give to a commercial printer for creating your newsletter, poster or invitation. As long you give them a commercial-quality document, you can expect printed material as it looked on your computer screen. Believe it or not, this is a fairly recent event. Only a few years ago you had to use Quark and it had to be a version your commercial printer had installed.

Problem is, you need a PDF reader to open the documents. Macs can do this out of the box, but Windows users need an external program. Most users would consider Adobe Reader, but this can be slow and cumbersome. There are better, smaller and lightweight alternatives.

FoxIt PDF Reader is one of the better alternative PDF readers and the latest version supports the PDF 1.7 standard. It will start swiftly, open and manage large PDF documents and much more.

This is the portable version of Foxit Reader.

Verdict:

Quickly open your PDF documents using this lightweight and super-fast PDF reader

One of those annoying programs that tries to install a browser toolbar. Just wish it didn't cheapen itself with trying to slip in other things you don't want. Otherwise seems to be a decent product.

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.
