Driver Detective
Use Driver Detective to ensure that your drivers are always up to date

Driver Detective is a tool which can automatically identify your PC's hardware, list any outdated drivers, and even download and install them for you (although the last part only applies if you buy the full version - the trial lists potential updates only).

The program's operations are largely automatic. Launch it, click Scan, and all you have to do is watch as any outdated drivers are listed. The entire process is very quick, taking well under a minute on our test PC.

If you don't want to pay just yet, select "Out of date" in the "View" box and Driver Detective will display only your outdated drivers. Just seeing this information is useful in itself, as you can now scroll down the report, identify anything that looks important, and visit the manufacturer's site to download the update manually.

For real convenience, though, it would of course be much easier to let Driver Detective handle all this automatically. And if you're happy to pay, click Next, follow the instructions to pay for and register the program, and it'll then be able to look after your driver management needs, all on its own.

Please note, Driver Detective will by default install extra applications. If you don't want this then pay close attention during setup, and click the Decline button when it appears.

Verdict:

It isn't always necessary to keep your drivers up-to-date, and if it accidentally installs the wrong driver then this kind of tool might cause more problems than it solves. Still, Driver Detective can at least help you find if there are updates available, and that won't cost you anything at all.

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.
