Bgcall
An ultra-lightweight wallpaper changer and desktop calendar

Bgcall is a small and simple tool which can regularly change your wallpaper, and optionally add a monthly calendar to your desktop.

This isn't one of those tools that will find and download new images for you, so you'll need to have a good collection of wallpaper pictures already, but if that's the case then there's plenty to like here. Bgcall can quickly import your chosen images into up to 8 different lists, and reorder them to suit your needs. It can then automatically change your wallpaper once a day, or every time your system starts. And you can also launch a special shortcut to cycle the wallpaper whenever you like.

There's also the option to further customise your desktop with a simple text calendar of the current month. This is extremely customisable, so you can set the calendar position, font, date format, text colours and more. You're even able to mark particular days as "holidays" (although these can also be birthdays, anniversaries or anything you like), and these can then be displayed in a different colour.

And while none of this is particularly revolutionary, Bgcall at least manages to do its work while making very few demands on your system. So it's a tiny download (221KB), there's no adware, and the program doesn't need some resident process to be running all the time. Once set up, it launches at boot time, changes your wallpaper if necessary, then closes down and gets out of your way.

If there's a small issue with the program, it's that the Help file is Japanese-only. This is unlikely to be a major problem - the interface is fairly well designed, you'll probably figure out the key details yourself - but if you are confused about something then it could be a concern.

Version 2.6.8.0:
    - "Add the font setting functions such as window, other. "

Verdict:

It would benefit from an English language Help file, but otherwise Bgcall is a lightweight and configurable wallpaper changer

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.
