EaseUS CleanGenius
EaseUS CleanGenius presents its tools via this slick-looking control panel.

Does the world really need another optimisation tool for PCs? EaseUS thinks so, which is why it’s released this. Despite the name, CleanGenius isn’t a direct port of the more established Mac app, it’s actually a collection of cleanup, speedup and optimisation utilities, all bundled together in one program.

The idea is nothing new, and that’s ultimately where the program falls short. It’s got more options than the likes of CCleaner for example, but some of these are restricted to the Pro version, although the amount of functionality in the free version is still impressive.

You get options for performing various cleaning and privacy scans, plus a one-click “Turbo Boost” tool that does work (largely as it disables a load of Windows Services and hang the consequences – sadly you can’t configure which services get disabled, so will likely find yourself having to switch it off again if things don’t behave as they should).

There’s also a Privacy Protect tool that’s designed to let you clean up sensitive areas of your PC, although why these programs persist in including recent files by default escapes us. Thankfully EaseUS has sensibly included a backup tool, easily accessible by clicking the More button and selecting Recover Manager. Sadly it didn’t actually recover our recent files or jumplists, which just goes to highlight the dangers in using these programs without being careful.

Other tools include a context menu tweaker, startup manager, disk defrag tool, file encryption and driver backup. All of these are free, but those that aren’t include Registry cleaning and defrag tools. Also restricted to the Pro version are scheduling tools for keeping your PC optimised automatically. But seeing as we’ve just highlighted the dangers of letting it loose on your system without due care and attention, maybe that’s not such a bad thing.

Verdict:

It’s competent enough at what it does, but EaseUS CleanGenius doesn’t offer anything new or innovative to stand out from the crowd.

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.
