Convert your Blurays and DVDs for free with MakeMKV

Having films and other video stored on DVD and Blu-ray disc is great in many respects, but it is also somewhat restrictive. If you want to watch a particular video on a laptop that does not have a built in optical drive, you are a bit stuck for options, but MakeMKV is a tool that can help you to overcome this and other problems. There are numerous tools available that can be used to convert discs into video files, but this one is incredibly easy to use.

Where MakeMKV really shines is in just hoe simple the whole conversion process is made. Once your disc has been analysed, your will be provided with a new video file in a very short space of time – the biggest limitation here is the speed of your drive. The benefit of using the MKV format is that it preserves the menu structure of DVD and Blu-ray discs so you can maintain the full contents of a disc including film extras.

As well as keeping menus and chapters intact, the program will also retain all availbale audio and video tracks. The fact that the program can be used with both protected and unprotected discs is likely to appeal and in practice the app seems to cope well with all discs. It’s good to find a simple conversion tool that does not require the installation of countless extras – everything you need is ready right from the word go.

During the beta testing phase of MakeMKV’s development, the converting of Blu-rays will be free, but at the end of the beta period there will be a charge for this feature. However, the ability to convert DVD is and will remain completely free of charge. Anyone who has used the old program DVD Shrink is likely to find this particular app very familiar as the two program have a very similar look and feel.

Version 1.12.3 (see revision history for more):

- Improved handling for discs with mastering errors
- Improved handling for Japanese BDAV discs
- Many small miscellaneous improvements

Verdict:

A great way to backup your discs and make your movies available on all of your computing devices.

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.
