Search torrents from the Windows desktop

TorrentRover is a torrent search tool for the Windows desktop.

Getting started is easy. Download the file, unzip it (no installation or adware here) and run TorrentRoverPortable. Type something in the Quick Search box, the program passes your query to a few torrent search engines (PirateBay.se, Kickass.so, BitSnoop.com, isoHunt.to), collects any matches, and sorts them in order of quality. Double-click anything that appeals to open it in your default torrent client (TorrentRover is purely about search, it won't download anything itself).

Any search you run is automatically saved, with a matching button displayed at the top of the TorrentRover window. At its simplest, this means you can use it again with a click, no retyping required.

What's more interesting is that you can edit these searches. There are options to refine them (search only a particular category of file, or your favourite search engines), to schedule them to run at a particular time, even to automatically download the preferred file.

A "Plugins" menu can run the same search on YouTube, Amazon, eBay, Wikipedia, IMDB, last.fm, MetaCritic, Walmart and (if all else fails) Google.

In theory you can configure all this via the Preferences dialog, but that's the only feature which didn't work for us. Whenever we tried to access it, the program closed down.

Version 1.2.7 brings (Version History):

- Replaced memory checking method (not all systems support Performance Counters, so switched to WMI)

Verdict:

Although it's been around for a while, TorrentRover is still classed as a beta, and in some ways that shows (not being able to access the Preferences is a fairly major problem). The core of the program worked just fine, though, so on balance it's one thumb up from us.

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.
