Replace Explorer with the powerful Avanquest PowerDesk Pro

Windows Explorer is probably best described as functional. While it allows for the management of files and folders, it is somewhat lacking in features - this is something PowerDesk Pro aims to rectify. This advanced file management tool features integrated FTP support so you can work with remote as well as local files.

It is possible to use the program to synchronise the contents of two folders making it ideal for creating automated backups of important files. There is also built in support for more than 30 compressed file types, so no additional software is needed to open a wide variety of archives.

A dual pane view makes it easy to copy and moves files from one location to another, and the Size Manager tool enables you to keep an eye on how your hard drive space is being used up. With tools to help with the management and organisation of MP3s, an integrated file viewer and much more, PowerDesk is a complete suite to help you to work with your files.

The program can also be used to manage your desktop, storing custom layouts so your icons appear where you want them to. You also have a number of security options available, including the password protection of files and secure deletion of sensitive data that is no longer needed.

Verdict:

One of the most advanced Explorer replacements available that caters for every aspect of working with 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.
