Nox APP Player
Play Android games on your Windows desktop

Nox APP Player is an emulator which allows you to run Android apps in a window on your PC desktop.

Installation was slow on our test PC, but straightforward enough. The only action we had to take was to agree to the installation of a USB driver, and after doing that, the program was ready to go.

On launch Nox APP Player fired up a virtual Android 4.4.2 tablet in a near-full-screen window. This only has one or two apps by default, but fortunately Play Store is included, so you can search for and install whatever you like in the usual way.

The program has reasonable gaming support, and allows you to play using a joystick, mouse, or the keyboard (map your preferred keys to make life easier). But other apps work just as well, and everything we tried ran without problems.

A toolbar to the right of the window provides options to simulate shaking your device, to set a virtual location, take a screenshot, install an APK from the host, and more.

Nox APP Player also has some useful settings, including options to change your screen resolution, and optimise performance by assigning more (or less) RAM/ CPU cores.

Version 5.0.0.0 (Changelog):

1.Re-designed the user interface of NoxPlayer to comply with flat design principles and give the users a whole new experience

2. Added Theme center. We are the only Android emulator that supports this feature. You could change between different themes to give your Nox a new touch.

3. Dramatically improved the engine to boost NoxPlayer’s performance

4. Added Rotate button to change Nox screen display from vertical to horizontal or back with just one click

5. Changed the interface of Keyboard control settings and File share between PC and NoxPlayer

Verdict:

There's nothing too advanced or surprising here, but Nox APP Player's Android 4.4.2 KitKat base - and its ease of use - make for an appealing program.

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.
