Replace Notepad with the versatile AkelPad text editor

Text editors are ten a penny, but finding one that has the perfect blend of speed and functionality can be difficult. This is where AkelPad is a little different. Out of the box, it is a very basic, light-weight and speedy text editor that can be used for everything from coding to taking notes, but support for plugins means that the application can be tailored to suit your needs.

If you have Total Commander installed, AkelPad can be installed as the default editor for use with the program's file manager, but it works equally well as a standalone application. The installation process also give you the option of replacing Windows Notepad with AkelPad - this is something that could be achieved manually, but it is nice to see that the option can also be taken care of automatically.

The application can be used to create and edit all manner of text based files, and its seeming simplicity makes it ideal for coding and HTML work. For some people, the interface and options available in AkelPad may seem a little limited, but this can soon be addressed through the use of plugins.

There are a huge number of plugins that can be accessed through the program's menus, and these can be used to add everything from standard toolbars and features such as a spell checker to advanced search and formatting options. The beauty of the app is that you can choose exactly which options should be enabled so you are not overwhelmed with tools and features that you will never use.

Version 4.9.8 (Full Changelog):

- Added: flag 128 in the manual parameter "PaintOptions" - unit of vertical scrolling is line (default is pixel). 
- Added: optional parameter for commands 4103,4106: 
- 1 - force to use last directory. 

Verdict:

One of the most customizable text editors available, AkelPad can be put to endless uses.

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.
