Choose which applications get the greatest share of your web bandwidth

Download managers are a great way to grab the files you need at the maximum possible speed. Until you decide you'd like to use your browser, of course, and find it's crawling along because there are only scraps of bandwidth left.

Install NetBalancer, though, and you'll be prepared for these situations. The program lets you assign download and upload priorities to your web applications, so you could, say, set your download manager to "low priority" for a while, and your browser would automatically get a better share of available bandwidth. Or, in emergencies, you can prevent an application from accessing the internet at all.

The program doubles as a useful bandwidth monitor, too, listing all your running processes, graphing current network activity, and detailing exactly which network connections an internet program has open at the moment. And so you could also use NetBalancer to identify malware, perhaps, by spotting its efforts to phone home.

There is an unregistered 'free' version of NetBalancer, you're limited to controlling the bandwidth of no more than 3 applications. We think this should be sufficient for most people, as you really only need apply it apps that will consume all your bandwidth, like download managers or P2P software. But if you need more, then you can upload to the unlimited NetBalancer Pro version for $29.95.

Recent changes include a digital signature, compatibility with Windows 10, and a few improvements under the hood, the most important of which is "Sync Edit": now you can edit the Sync settings remotely from your web control panel, for multiple computers at once.

For 9.12 new features, see the NetBalancer changelog.

Verdict:

While it looks a little intimidating, NetBalancer is straightforward to use, and will be very handy for anyone who's always running multiple internet apps at the same time

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.
