Rambox
Combine multiple email/ messaging apps

Rambox is an open-source tool which organises multiple messaging and email services into a single Electron-based application.

The program opens with bookmark-type icons for 90+ supported services: Flock, Gmail, Hangouts, Hootsuite, Hushmail, iCloud Mail, ICQ, LinkedIn Messaging, Outlook, Outlook 365, Pushbullet, Skype, Slack, SquirrelMail, Steam Chat, TweetDeck, WhatsApp, Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Messenger, Zimbra and more (you can add custom services, too).

Click a service and you can add it as a tab. These tabs may be grouped and reordered to help you organise and switch between them.

Rambox can be left running in the background, optionally minimising to your system tray. When there's something new to check, a native desktop notification lets you know. If the program is open anyway, a badge appears in the tab to raise the alert. And if you're busy and don't need any of this, a "Don't Disturb" feature disables all sounds and notifications.

Rambox may be password-protected, ensuring snoopers can't launch it and access all your messages. It's also possible to lock the program if you'll be away for a while.

An "Add Custom Service" feature enables adding more web services. This can be almost as simple as giving Rambox the service URL, but experts can go much further. The program is able to inject custom JavaScript code into websites, allowing users to add new functionality.

Rambox is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. Even better, if you set it up on one system, you can sync your settings with other devices, allowing you to switch between computers without any hassle at all.

What's new in 0.6.8 (see changelog for more)?

- Fixed Gmail and Outlook unread counter.
 -Fixed WhatsApp unread counter to prevent muted chats and scroll badge to be counted.

Verdict:

An easier way to organise and work with multiple email and messaging apps, smartly designed and highly configurable.

Windows 10 November 2019 Update ISO (build 1909)

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.

November 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 1090 which is the November 2019 Update.
