MiTeC InfoBar
The most feature-packed desktop accessory you've ever seen?

MiTeC InfoBar is an incredible system monitoring tool and desktop accessory which comes packed with features. Some are aimed at programmers, but there's more than enough here to appeal to just about any PC user.

Launch the program, for instance, and a small horizontal toolbar will appear at the top of your screen, displaying all sorts of information: date, time, free memory, CPU utilisation, power status (mains/ on battery, if applicable), system up time, current weather conditions and scrolling headlines from Reuters.

Sounds good - but it's just the beginning, as double-clicking most of these sections displays much more information. Double-click the weather conditions panel, say, and a pop-up appears with a forecast for the next five days. Double-clicking the free RAM figure displays a breakdown with details for your physical RAM, virtual memory and paging file. And double-clicking the system up-time shows you your system's network name, IP and MAC addresses, the currently logged-in user, and more.

Not impressed yet? Then click the star icon at the far left of the menu and you'll find more substance in the shape of several small but very capable accessories.

The Desktop Explorer, for instance, is a developer's tool which provides a host of information about your chosen window: class, handle, size, the current mouse cursor position, and the parent process and process ID, and you get a magnifier and colour-picker thrown in for good measure.

There's a scientific calculator which comes with so many functions and constants that it could easily be a capable application all on its own. (It doesn't look that way as the program opens with two entirely empty panes, but just enter some equation - 45*sin(30) , for example - and you'll see how it works.)

The calculator's not enough? Version 1.8. adds a spreadsheet. It's simple, of course - no graphs, no file import/ export - but again there's more than enough to be useful.

You also get a simple text editor, just a little more capable than Notepad (right-click in the window for the program's menu); a basic calendar displays day names and astronomical events (no scheduling of your own events, though); and there's an ACSII table, assorted useful small developer tools, and a basic but usable RSS reader.

All this is reasonably configurable. If you find the RSS feed distracting, say, you can turn off the scrolling. If you don't like toolbars, you can have InfoBar automatically hide so that it only appears when you move your bar to the top-left of the screen. And all the accessories are available via customisable hotkeys, so if you need the weather forecast, say, just press Ctrl+Alt+W.

And best of all, it won't eat up your system resources. On launch we found InfoBar required little more than 8MB of RAM, and even when using several tools simultaneously it would peak at around 16.5MB: considering what you're getting here, that's not bad at all.

What's new?
Process monitor enhanced, coding tools enhanced, bug fixes.

Verdict:

MiTeC InfoBar is an amazingly versatile desktop tool with a lengthy list of useful features - there really is something here for everyone.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

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.
