Microsoft PerfView
Analyze and optimize your apps with Microsoft PerfView

When designing and coding and app, performance is always a primary concern. Tracking how your app makes use of memory and processor time can be key to optimizing performance and this is something that Microsoft PerfView can help with. Whether you are experiencing performance issues with your code, or just want to ensure that your apps are well optimized, this utility provides you with the tools you need.

It can often be difficult to determine the exact cause of performance issues, but PerfView makes it possible to perform complex analysis on memory and processor usage. If an app seems to be using up more memory that expected, PerfView can help to track down the source of leaks. Similarly, in the case of long wait times or hangs, the program makes it easy to see just why the app is waiting.  

PerfView can be used to work with a wide range of app, including Windows Store apps, JavaScript, ASP.NET and more. It is possible to get very precise with how you analyse the performance an app. You can single out individual processes to see how they are performing, manage memory dumps and set up a range of different scenarios to thoroughly benchmark and stress test your apps.

This is not necessarily a tool for the faint of heart. It is not the sort of thing that most people will be able to just jump into and start using without any form of introduction. That said, anyone who finds themselves coding apps of their own is already off to a good start, and there are a number of helpful introductory videos and tutorials available from Microsoft to help get you up to speed.

Verdict:

A valuable tool for developers looking to get the best possible performance from their apps.

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.
