Process Lasso
Take control of unruly processes

Most programs are polite, well-behaved, use only their share of system resources and so make the minimal impact on your PC. But others aren't quite so restrained. At a minimum, they might constantly use a low level of processor time, just enough to stop your laptop ever going to sleep. And at the worst, they'll hog just as much of your CPU's attention as they can get, bringing anything else you're running to a grinding halt.

You might think this is just the way things are, but Process Lasso is specially designed to offer an alternative. This interesting program runs in the background and tries to detect when unruly programs are slowing down your PC, then intelligently adjusts their priorities to ensure your system's responsiveness isn't affected.

If this sounds like it might be complicated, then you're right - the underlying technology really is. However the authors have gone to a great deal of trouble to hide it. You don't have to spend an age configuring complex options and settings before you can get started, just install the program and it'll work reasonably well on its own.

If you're a more experienced user, though, then exploring the menus will reveal all kinds of interesting features. You can give processes standard priorities, for instance, so important programs run at the best possible speeds. It's possible to limit the number of instances of some processes, or prevent others from running at all. And a useful Gaming Mode optimises your PC for full-screen games, while also temporarily placing your PC in the High Performance power scheme for an extra speed boost.

See the changelog for release info.

Verdict:

A powerful tool to help Windows multitasking performance. Well worth a try

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.
