Notepad Replacer
Quickly replace Windows Notepad

It's no secret that Notepad is just about as feeble a text editor as you'll find anywhere. If that bothers you then you may have installed something more powerful - but that's not a complete solution. Other applications often still launch Notepad by default, whenever they want to display or allow you to edit text files, and there's nothing you can do about that.

Unless, that is, you install Notepad Replacer.

The program is just about as simple as any utility can be. Install it, you'll be asked to choose the executable that you want to replace Notepad, and - that's it. Your chosen editor should now appear instead of Notepad, just about all of the time, and you can finally get more productive with your text editing.

Don't worry, Notepad Replacer doesn't do anything dangerous, like replacing any system files or changing file permissions. And it doesn't run in the background or change system resources, either. The program just makes a few tweaks to ensure you'll be seeing a lot less of Notepad, in future. And while it worked well for us, if you find you prefer Notepad after all, then just uninstall Notepad Replacer and the editor will immediately return.

Verdict:

Notepad Replacer is a simple way to ensure you get more from your preferred text editor

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 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 Windows 8 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.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
