HotKeyMan 1.21
Easily create keyboard shortcuts which can be used in all your programs

HotKeyMan is an interesting tool which makes it easy to set up personal keyboard shortcuts to speed up your PC operations.

This starts very simply, with some basic shortcuts created during the installation process. Pressing Win + N will launch Notepad, for instance, whatever you might be doing. And pressing Win + S captures the current screen, then allows you to save the image to file with a click.

But that's just the start. Create a hotkey and you're able to choose the key itself, before selecting from a lengthy list of possible actions. Your shortcut can minimise, maximise or close the active window; open a document or launch a program; fire up the default browser with your chosen website; place the content of a given file in the clipboard; capture the active window or screen; exit Windows, or even send keystrokes to the current window.

These features are generally implemented in a very basic way, so for instance you can't send an Alt+F keystroke to open a menu in the current application, which limits HotKeyMan's possibilities for automation. The program is lightweight and easy to use, though, and if your needs are straightforward then it could still be very handy.

Recent changes have included the following:

HotKeyMan 1.21 - 16. jan. 2013
+ Open app settings folder button in settings window
+ Quick search in hotkey settings window
+ New hotkey function for showing HotKeyMan hotkeys on screen
* Will no longer allow the program to run more than one instance at a time

Verdict:

HotKeyMan is a simple free tool which makes it easy to automate some basic PC tasks

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.
