Auslogics Windows Slimmer 1.0.17.0
Save space and remove unnecessary files from your Windows installation

If you have a lightweight laptop, chances are it might only have a small SSD, meaning that once you install Windows and your other applications, you don't have too much spare space. A 128GB SSD is fairly standard on entry-level laptops, meaning juggling space is an ongoing battle.

Of course, you could try storing data in the cloud, downloading only the relevant files when you are on the road, but this also relies on a steady internet connection and being able to access the cloud files (some firewalls may block access).

Another solution is a tool such as Auslogics Windows Slimmer, which will analyse your system, advise and remove a number of unwanted files. From the team behind the popular BoostSpeed software, Windows Slimmer is from a tried-and-tested company, meaning you should be able to trust the advice.

We analysed our own laptop to see what it could find. In the One-Time Maintenance section, we ran the suggested cans. Old Windows data was taking up over 3GB of space, whilst Windows Update files were taking nearly 400MB of our drive. In the Regular Maintenance section, nearly 1GB of space could be salvaged, whilst in the App List Cleanup it's easy to see how much space some of the largest installed applications take on our drive.

Windows Slimmer is a simple tool that will reduce the size of your Windows footprint. Even better, we found that after installation, we were offered a free Auslogics Bitreplica code, worth $29.95. But, be aware that you are also encouraged to install trial versions of other Auslogics software during installation and the installer will ask if you want to set Yahoo as your default web browser search engine. You can can easily decline.

What's new in 1.0.17.0 (see changelog for more)?

Improved program stability.
Fixed a few minor bugs.

Verdict:

Decent tool for reducing your Windows footprint, but just be careful of the files it attempts to install during installation.

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.
