Freehand Painter
Sketch and paint on your touch-screen PC with this free tool

Freehand Painter is a small, simple and free vector drawing and paint tool with touch screen support.

The program is easy to use. Getting started is just a matter of choosing a colour and brush size, then dragging your finger across the touch screen (or using the mouse, if your system isn't touch-enabled).

You've made a mistake? The Undo tool will reverse your last steps. You can alternatively use the eraser to remove pixels or an entire stroke. While the Lasso tool helps you to select a vector object and move it elsewhere.

When your masterpiece is complete, you're able to save it as an ISF file, or export the painting as a bitmap in GIF, BMP, JPG or PNG formats.

And while Freehand Painter isn't exactly complicated, a straightforward local Help file explains other details which you might find useful (like some handy keyboard shortcuts for selecting tools, varying the brush size, and more).

There's no great depth to any of this, but that's probably part of the program's appeal: it's simple enough for kids to use, yet still provides enough tools and options to keep them busy for quite some time (as long as they've some artistic talent, anyway).

Verdict:

This simple vector paint tool offers plenty of fun for beginners, especially on touch-sensitive screens, although if you're familiar with more advanced software then Freehand Painter will probably feel a little basic.

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.
