Etcher
Burn images to USB keys, SD cards

Etcher is an easy-to-use cross-platform tool for burning images to SD cards, USB drives and other removable devices.

The program keeps operations to the bare minimum, all of them clearly displayed on a simple interface. Choose your image, then your drive, and finally click the "Flash!" button.

Etcher supports many different image formats: ISO, IMG, RAW, BZ2, DMG, DSK, ETCH, GZ, HDDIMG, XZ and ZIP.

The "Choose a drive" step only allows selecting removable devices, reducing the chance that you'll accidentally trash a fixed drive. If this doesn't suit your needs - maybe a removable device isn't being detected correctly - you can disable this protection by turning on "Unsafe Mode" in settings.

Once the image is written, Etcher validates the results to make sure it's worked correctly. That's usually a good idea, but can take a while, and if you prefer you can disable validation in Settings.

Verdict:

Etcher is a simple and straightforward image burner which works almost anywhere. It's a likeable tool, but keep in mind that it only burns the image. If you need extra abilities, like an option to burn a Windows image and make it bootable, look for a more sophisticated tool such as Rufus.

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.
