Tweak-10
TotalIdea's classic PC tweaker, now available for Windows 10

Tweak-10 is a collection of tools for customising, optimising, and generally getting the most from Windows 10.

A simple tabbed interface organises Tweak-10's features into categories like "System Info", "Visual Tweaks" and "Network + Internet". Scan through these and you'll find many of the tools you'd expect in a maintenance suite: a junk file finder, Registry cleaner, internet connection optimiser, startup program manager, and memory "optimiser". These generally work well, although some options aren't available in the trial ("Auto Optimizer").

The program is really more about its tweaks, of course, which give easier access to features normally buried in Control Panel or the Registry. In a click or two you can add useful options to the Explorer menu, customise the taskbar and Start menu, fine-tune your security settings, optimise your hardware and more.

Not all of this is as useful as it looks. The program still includes the almost entirely pointless Windows QoS "tweak", and repeats the idea that somehow deleting your prefetch files might be a good thing.

Still, there's a lot of functionality here, including many tools you don't usually find in PC maintenance suites (a RAM disk, a module for restricting access to applications, folders, entire drives).

What's new in build 1060?

- Service release including fixes and optimizations

Verdict:

Tweak-10's expensive and we've not convinced by all the tools, but fans of the program will find plenty to explore.

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.
