Skype for Windows 10
Stay in touch with your contacts from a Windows 8 Skype app

Skype has become one of the most widely used messaging tools in existence, and the move to a touch-sensitive Windows 10 app is one that has gone incredibly well. If you’re using a Windows RT device the app can sit running in the background without draining the battery so you’re ready to exchange messages with your Skype, Messenger and Outlook.com contacts whenever you need.

The touchscreen interface makes it very quick and easy to browse through program options and access settings. The interface is large and clear so that contacts can be easily loaded with a quick tap and you can also use and on-screen dialler to call regular phone numbers if you have Skype credit.

Typing using the onscreen keyboard is not perfect, but it still works pretty well, but this is an app that has been designed with audio and video calls in mind. A particularly great feature of the Windows 8 version of the app is the option to snap the window to the side of the screen, this enables you to get on with other work and use other apps.

The Windows 10 version also adds touch screen compatibility. As well as tapping your way through your contacts and start and ending calls with a tap, you can also re-order the Skype pane and swipe down to access recent conversations.

Verdict:

For both home and office users, Skype is an incredibly valuable tool, although the Windows 10 version is quite different with it's all-black user-interface.

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.
