PowerISO
Work with almost any disc image format

Download large applications and they'll often come in the form of disc images, typically ISO files. To use these normally you'll have to burn them to CD or DVD first, then access the disc as usual. It's time-consuming, inconvenient, and costs you money if you're not using a rewriteable a disc, but there are alternatives. And PowerISO is one of the best.

At its simplest you can use the program to mount the disk image as a virtual drive. It'll appear in Explorer just like any other drive, you'll be able to browse the image, launch setup programs, without the need to burn it to a physical CD.

PowerISO makes it just as easy to access virtual disk images for VMware (VMDK), Virtual PC (VHD) and VirtualBox (VDI) - simply open them, and browse their contents, edit individual documents, drag and drop files to or from the image and generally treat it just like any other drive.

But the program really comes into its own when you start creating your own images. Are you tired of software that won't run unless its disc is in your drive, for instance? Create an image, mount it to a virtual drive and put the real disc safely away: easy.

You can also create disc images with your own choice of files, make images bootable, password-protect or encrypt them, even compress them to save drive space, or reduce download time, if you're putting them online.

And perhaps best of all, PowerISO works with a huge range of image formats: ISO, DAA, BIN/ CUE, MDF/ MDS, IMG, NRG, CIF and others, more than 30 in total. Whatever images you come across, the program should be able to help.

New 7.4 features (see the changelog) include:

- Improve compatibility when making bootable USB drive.
- Some minor bug fixes and enhancements.

Verdict:

A powerful tool that makes it very easy to view, create and edit disc image files

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.
