Directory Opus 12.15
Handle your files and folders more productively using this Explorer replacement tool

If you work with lots of files, then you’ll soon find that the Windows Explorer can be rather frustrating. For example, you have to open multiple windows to handle a source and destination location for your files, Explorer doesn’t always remember your previous location, so you have to dig deep to find the destination and you can’t worked with tabbed windows, making multiple destinations difficult.

Directory Opus is much different. At a basic level it will replace Explorer. This enables you to quickly and easily open a new Opus window from, say, double-clicking on the desktop in any location, or right-clicking the mouse menu to open a window. You can have single-pane Opus windows, a dual-pane and, of course multiple windows.

The key to Opus is the flexibility of the user-interface. You can customise it as much or as little as you require. Add quick links to your favourite folders, your drives and other destinations. Use Opus to handle your create, open and extract archives. It also enables you to work with FTP sites as if they were local to your computer. Even copy from one server to another.

Once you’ve started using Directory Opus, you won’t want to go back to Windows Explorer. Yes, Opus has a high-learning curve. It’s difficult to figure it out for the first couple of weeks. However, keep configuring and you’ll soon have it exactly how you require.

The Directory Opus changelog is here.

Verdict:

One of the best Windows Explorer replacement tools available

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.
