Batchrun 4.4.2
Build up a batch file quickly using Batchrun

Batch files enable you to automate repetitive tasks quickly and easily, but these require coding by hand using Notepad or another text editor, and things can quickly become confusing for less experienced users or those who keep needing to look up command-line references as they go.

Batchrun eliminates the need for typing commands in by hand thanks to its more user-friendly approach. Install and launch the program, and you can quickly build a set of batch commands using the supplied drop-down menus and file selection boxes.

The process is relatively simple: launch the program and select the type of command (Run, copy, rename, make folder, delete, delete folder, end process, kill process or copy text to the clipboard). Select the file or enter file-based variables to perform this task on, input parameters, set a priority level and – if applicable – choose a working directory. You can also opt to delay the task or run the selected program minimised, maximised or using its normal window if applicable. Once done, click Add to add subsequent commands. Commands can be dragged and dropped to sort them in a different order if necessary, and individual commands can be tagged with a “Wait to kill” option that pauses the batch file until the program launched is closed by the end user.

It’s also possible to launch dial-up connections using a combination of the Run command and the rasphone.exe file – full instructions can be found inside the program’s help files.

Batch files can be saved to the desktop for easy access, to the startup folder so they launch with Windows or executed directly from the program. A portable version is also available.

Version 4.4.2 adds support for using environment variables (e.g. %programfiles%) in batch files, and improves the program's general support for 64-bit systems.
 

Verdict:

A competent little tool that offers a more user-friendly alternative to creating and editing batch files.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update build 1709

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows - Fall Creators 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? The latest release brings 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 1607 which is the August 2016 Anniversary Update.
