Test your computer's battery life and stability with StressMyPC

There are plenty of benchmarking tools that can be used to test the raw power of your computer, but StressMyPC is a little different. As the name suggests, the purpose of this particular program is to push your computer to its limits to see what it can handle. You may wonder why you might want to do this but for anyone interested in checking the performance of their laptop’s battery this could prove to be a valuable tool.

StressMyPC is a fairly basic affair, but it does include a number of options that can be used to test different aspects of your system and push it in a variety of ways. The program comprises three basic stress tests which you can run individually, all at the same time, or in combination. If you are experiencing problems with the stability of your system, these tests could help you to determine what might be the root cause.

You can run intensive tests on your hard drive, your processor and your graphics card, and if you run the tests one at a time and note when your computer crashes, you can discover if any of these components are responsible for your stability problems. The app can also be used to see how long your laptop battery lasts when your computer is being used for different purposes – graphic intensive apps are likely to result in a different battery life that graphically intensive apps, for example.

It is important to note that if you use this software on a computer that has been overclocked a lot, you do run the risk of permanently damaging your hardware. However, when you are performance system diagnosis, this could be a very valuable tool and the fact that it is a portable app that can be copied onto a USB drive means that it is a helpful app for anyone who might be called on to assist with a friend’s computer.

Verdict:

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.
