Whether you’re an ex-UK resident who has moved to another country only to find that some of the content you’ve come to know and love – BBC iPlayer for example – is no longer available to you, ExpatShield could be the tool for you. This is a free proxy tool that can be used to assign yourself a UK IP address so you can get around country restrictions and access sites that would otherwise be blocked.

There is another helpful side-effect to working with a proxy in this way; it helps to improve your security and privacy. As you are working with a proxy that assigns you a temporary IP address based in another country, you are, to all intents and purposes, anonymous.

While the software is available free of charge, it is supported by advertising. While this is not a major problem, it is something to keep in mind as there are alternative proxy tools out there that are not supported in this way. The advertising is not too overwhelming, and ads can be closed after a while so you are not forced to endure them the whole time you are online.

Something else worth noting is the fact that the program cannot currently be used with Windows 8. Versions of Microsoft’s operating system up to 7 work perfectly, but if you have upgraded to 8, you’re going to have to look elsewhere.

Verdict:

An effective means of bypassing country restrictions, providing you don’t mind advertising and are not running Windows 8.

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.
