Winstep Nexus
Quickly access and switch between your applications

Winstep Nexus is a free, stylish and eye-catching Windows dock that provides speedy access to all your favourite applications.

The program is supremely easy to use, and can be improving your PC life within seconds of installation. Tell Winstep Nexus to display running apps in the dock, for instance (right-click the Nexus icon, click Tasks, check "Show running applications in this dock") and you'll see an icon for every program running right now. These can be grouped, or not; you can customise the icons, or exclude particular apps from the list; and it's even possible to create custom actions that will occur when you click each icon. You might middle-click an icon to close that application, for example.

Adding other apps to the dock is as easy as dragging and dropping a shortcut from the desktop or Start menu. And you can also drag and drop icons within the dock to rearrange them.

You also get some useful gadgets, including a CPU and RAM monitor, a weather tool, email checker, screen capture option and more.

And Winstep Nexus includes a huge number of customisation options. You get complete control over fundamentals, like dock icon sizes, spacing and more; there are 19 bundled themes, with many others available; a lengthy list of mouseover and click effects including blurs, ripples and reflections; a selection of sound schemes, and more.

Please note, Winstep also produces a more advanced Nexus Ultimate version of the dock that includes additional features. It allows you to create multiple docks, sub and tabbed docks, for instance; can display the contents of folders like the desktop or Control Panel in tabs; can display the system tray in a dock, and more. Prices start at $24.95 and you may order from the Winstep site.

Nexus 18.10 is a minor update. See the changelog for more info.

Verdict:

Winstep Nexus is an excellent free dock that, despite all the graphical gorgeousness, still makes only minimal demands on your system resources

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.
