Mendeley Desktop for Windows
Keep all your research notes and documents in order with Mendeley

Does your virtual desktop and filing system get as cluttered and disorganised as the real thing? If you’re frequently left scrabbling about your computer looking for documents, you need a tool that can do the hard work for you.

Mendeley is a tool aimed at researchers and academics, making it easy to organise, cross-reference and index any kind of document. Although aimed at high-brow users, its features can in fact be used by anyone with a need to work with a slew of documents of different types scattered across your hard drive.

Mendeley is also designed to work with the cloud – and you’ll need to sign up for a free account with 1GB storage space (500MB personal, 500MB shared) when you start. This allows you to access your research from your web browser, plus synchronise your setup across multiple computers as well as access it on the movie via an iPhone/iPad app, but it goes beyond that.

You can also opt to put your research papers up for collaboration and peer review from others in your field via private and public groups. Again, it’s something aimed very much at academia and researchers, but skip this part and you can still use the service as a backup and sync tool for your important papers – or whatever else you wish to use it for.

The desktop tool is simple enough to use – drag and drop your documents in any of the supported formats (including Word and PDF), then check their details before organising them into folders and sub-folders.

Mendeley also automatically extracts any meta-data from your documents and builds an index of the text within, which you can subsequently search to quickly track down the documents you’re looking for. Note that Mendeley will attempt to find metadata for the document from various online resources, so expect some false alarms to appear. Sadly, there’s no way to switch this feature off – you’ll have to edit the details yourself manually.

You can add notes to specific documents, plus view them within their own tab in Mendeley itself, complete with annotation tools like sticky notes and highlighter pens. You can even - with the help of free plug-ins - create source citations in later versions of Word and OpenOffice directly from Mandeley itself.

Whether you're a serious researcher looking for a way to keep your documents and other research tools in order, or someone looking for an easy way to organise a set of personal documents, Mandeley could be just the tool you need.

What's new in 1.19.1? See the Release Notes for more info.

We have improved security for users accessing Mendeley Desktop on a shared machine
Literature search has been updated so you should see better results
We have fixed a bug so you can now rename groups again without going to mendeley.com
We have fixed some bugs in the MS Word plugin that caused:

 Incorrect citation to be added when using footnote citation styles
 Errors on editing citations when the bibliography was selected

Mendeley Desktop now supports the LibreOffice 64bit version on MS Windows
We also fixed some bugs in the LibreOffice plugin that caused:

Citations not to be added after a bibliography had been inserted
Issues with inserting a bibliography

Verdict:

Although it can be used for non-research purposes, Mendeley is very much a tool that will be of most use to academics and researchers.

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.
