Task Coach
Whatever you need to do, Task Coach makes it easy to keep track of your progress

Modern life means that most of us have to remember a large number of appointments and deadlines every day of the week, and in many instances, a traditional diary or calendar will not suffice. One option is to turn to a personal information manager (PIM), but these have a tendency to be large, complicated beasts which are overpowered for what they are needed for. Many PIMs are also somewhat limited in the way in which they handle the creation of tasks, and this is where Task Coach may be able to help.

In essence, the program is a simple To Do list manager, but it has been designed with one important idea in mind - one which is all too often overlooked. The program is capable of handling composite tasks - an entry on a To Do list which is made up of several individual components - which means that it can be used to manage simple tasks and well as more complicated projects.

Tasks that are created can be assigned a start and end date as well as a priority level and a search facility is on hand to make it easy to track down information that may have been attached to a particular item. Saved in XML format, Task Coach files can be imported into a range of other programs, but on its own it does an excellent job of handling both small and large lists of tasks that need to be completed.

What's new in 1.4.6 (see changelog for more)?

- Workaround for an underlying wxPython limitation we ran into. After some time Task Coach would exhibit various symptoms because of an exception in the event loop.

Verdict:

Highly effective task manager which is not weighed down by unnecessary features

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.
