SmartSystemMenu 1.0.0.37
Make windows transparent, always on top, a specific size, more

SmartSystemMenu is a small, open-source tool which adds five useful functions to your window system menu (as displayed when you click the window's top-left corner).

"Information" displays various details about the window and its process. Most are aimed at developers (Handle, Class, Style), but the Process tab highlights the full path of its executable, handy if you need to know where it's stored.

"Always On Top" sets the window to float above all others, so it's always visible. Choose the option again to turn this off.

"Resize" allows you to set the window to a precise size. If you'd like it to be 1200x800 pixels for a screenshot, say, just choose it from the list, or manually enter whatever width and height figures you require.

"Transparency" allows you to set the window transparency, either to a predefined figure (100%, 90%, 80% etc) or whatever other value you define.

"Minimize to System Tray" completes the set and does precisely what its name suggests, minimising your target window to the system tray. Click the application icon there to restore it.

Verdict:

SmartSystemMenu is a small and simple tool, but performed well in our tests. The only problem: it may not work with applications which already add custom functions to their own system menu (Internet Explorer, say). Try it and see.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 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 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.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
