Homedale
Locate and monitor wireless access points

Homedale is a portable free tool which detects nearby wireless access points, displays their details, and plots signal strength over time.

Launch the program and its "Access Points" tab provides an in-depth report on your network neighbours, including their name, MAC address, vendor, signal strength, encryption, country ID, mode, frequency, band, first and last seen times, supported bitrates, model and adapter. A convenient right-click menu allows you to connect to (or disconnect from) any particular access point.

An "Access Point Signal Graph" page plots signal strength over time. Run Homedale on a laptop and you'll be able to access connection quality in various locations. Right-clicking the graph displays options to save it as an image, or log the signal strength data to a text file.

A "Location" tab uses Google Geolocation and Mozilla Location Service to locate your current position on a map. Not exactly essential, but worth trying once, just to see if it works. (For us: Google did, Mozilla didn't.)

Homedale also has one or two useful configuration options. For example, by default it removes access points once they've disappeared for 1 minute, so you're only ever seeing active networks. Tell Homedale to never remove them and the report will list every detected network, whether it's currently active or not.

Verdict:

A simple and straightforward wifi monitor with just enough features to be useful

Spotlight: Free Full Software

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.
