PDF24 Creator
Build, split, merge and digitally sign your PDF files

PDF24 Creator is an easy-to-use suite of tools for building and manipulating PDF files.

Install the program, and, just like many similar applications, it'll add a virtual printer driver to your system. And then, to create a PDF file from just about anything, you simply open the relevant document, choose the Print option, point your application at the PDF24 printer, and it'll produce the file for you.

If you need more control, then viewing the Printer Preferences will allow you to change settings relating to image and page compression, font embedding, and more.

And the PDF24 Editor then allows you to play around with the file you've just created (or any other PDF file you might have available). So you can split or merge PDFs, for instance, rotate pages, or move them from one file to another. There are options to change the file quality. And the program even allows you to create a self-signed digital certificate in just a few clicks, which you can then use to sign your PDF file.

What's new in 8.9.0 (see the changelog for more info)?

- Format options dialog visually improved
- User settings key name changes of the assistant and creator
- Single instance lock of the PDF24 Updater
- More options available in the settings UI
- Auto rotate pages are now enabled by default when converting PS files to PDF
- MAPI mail interface now creates modeless dialogs
- Mail interface selection bug fixed
- Reduced wait times of command processor
- PDF printer auto save command template
- Option NoReader=1 did not work correctly
- Fix for a PDF security settings issue in case of an empty owner password
- Update to QPDF 8.4.1
- Update to Ghostscript 9.27
- Optimized PDF password encoding

Verdict:

PDF24 Creator doesn't offer quite as much control over your PDF files as some of the competition, however its editor and digital certificate features mean the program may still be worth a look

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.
