DrawPad Graphics Editor
A useful vector draw/ paint tool

DrawPad Graphics Editor is a small and straightforward vector graphics editor.

The program includes Pencil and Paint tools (with multiple brushes), line and text options, and has the ability to draw simple shapes.

As these are all vector objects, they can be selected later and modified in various ways. At a minimum, you're able to click an object, move, resize and rotate it. But you can also adjust its border width, add a customisable drop shadow, a bevel/ emboss effect, maybe create a gradient fill.

A zoom slider (25% - 400%) helps you place your objects with reasonable precision.

Simple layer support can help you manage more complex designs.

A tabbed interface means you're able to have multiple projects open at the same time.

And your finished designs can be exported as JPG, PNG, BMP, SVG, PDF, or DrawPad's own internal DRP format.

Verdict:

At first glance DrawPad Graphics Editor looks a little basic. Its brush and object styles, drop shadow and fill options mean you can get quite creative, though. The layer support is welcome, SVG export was a surprise, and for a free tool requiring barely 2MB drive space it performs very well.

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.
