X-Ripper 1.5
Extract hidden images, audio or videos from other files

X-Ripper is a tool for locating and extracting images, audio or videos from other files. It's aimed at helping you extract content from a game library - soundtrack, images, cut scene videos and more - but can also extract JPEGs from a PDF file, find the images from a DLL, and more.

One very notable problem is there's no MP3 support, but otherwise X-Ripper does support a good range of file types, covering audio (WAV, OGG, WMA, MID, VOC, AU, AIF), image (BMP, JPG, PCX, PNG, DDS, GIF, TGA, TIF) and video (AVI, WMV, SMK, BIK). And in theory you can add support for other file types yourself via the program's X-Ripper.ini file, although this does require some knowledge of the file format.

While all this sounds quite complex, X-Ripper itself turns out to be implausibly small - just a single 120KB executable. And it's also very easy to use: select the file to scan, the output folder and file formats to locate, click "Start Searching" and the program will try to detect and remove them for you.

We say "try" because this won't always happen. X-Ripper doesn't understand the format of the file it's scanning, it just scans it as a simple binary stream, and if that happens to be compressed, encrypted or similarly manipulated then the program won't find anything at all.

Some files don't seem to be detected or extracted properly, either; in a few cases X-Ripper claimed to have found some TGA files in our test files, but they didn't seem to be viewable images.

Generally, though, the program worked very well for us. We pointed it at some PDFs and it extracted the JPEGs just fine, and using C:\Windows\System32\Imageres.dll created more than 600 PNGs of various Windows icons and other graphics: very easy.

Verdict:

Results vary - and we really wish there was MP3 support - but when it works X-Ripper is a quick and very easy way to extract images, audio and video content from other files

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.
