Patch My PC  4.1.0.2
Easily keep key Windows applications and tools up-to-date

Patch My PC is an easy-to-use tool which can quickly check your PC for outdated software.

Just launch the program, and it will check your installations of Adobe Reader, Flash, Firefox and Acrobat (if present), highlighting any which aren't the very latest version. If you spot any problems, just click "Run Updates" and Patch My PC will download and install any required updates for you.

The program can also check the following packages for update, amongst others: Google Chrome, CCleaner Slim, CPU-Z, Defraggler, ImgBurn, SandBoxie, VLC Player, File Zilla, WinRar, Pidgin, iTunes, Dropbox, Pot Player, Safari, Google Earth, Spybot Search & Destroy, KeePass, Picasa, Malwarebytes, Thunderbird, Speccy and others.

And just for completeness, Patch My PC will also display whatever Windows updates might be available for your system. Which could be useful, even if you have the essentials installed automatically, as it displays details of the optional updates as well.

Version 4.1.0.2 brings these  changes (see changelog for more):

- Fixed the downloaded Dropbox file name.
- Fixed ProcessLasso & UltraDefrag from installing x86 on x64 by default.
- Excluded “Skypemate” from interfering with Skype detection.
- Improved Adobe Flash products & Java 8 detection and installation process.
- Updated “Brave” silent switch.
- Updated “System Mechanic” Silent Switch, Shortcut & Process Name

Verdict:

Patch My PC may only work with a few applications, but it's ability to update all these silently is impressive, and as it's portable you can easily have the program update all the Windows computers you use

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.
