Free PNG Optimizer 2.3
Quickly reduce the size of PNG files, without affecting image quality

Free PNG Optimizer is a lossless compression tool which can reduce the size of PNG files without affecting their image quality.

The program looks and feels very professional. There's a quality ribbon interface; you can add files, folders, folder trees or more in a second or two; there's great control over the output images, and it all feels very configurable.

And the results aren't bad, either. We tested the program with a sample of 50 PNG web graphics, grabbed from real web sites, and Free PNG Optimizer compressed them by an average of 32%. That's impressive for files which you'd expect to be already heavily optimized, and if they were on your website, could help make a real difference to its performance and your bandwidth use.

If there's a problem here, it's that Free PNG Optimizer has a lot of competition. PNGGauntlet, for instance, combines three PNG compression tools to produce even more effective results, and managed to shrink our test images by 42%. Other tools also compacted our test images by more than 40%.

The results these programs can produce will vary a great deal depending on the source graphics, though, so if PNGGauntlet and other compression tools haven't been effective for you then it's definitely worth giving Free PNG Optimizer a try.

Verdict:

A configurable and easy-to-use image compression tool

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.
