DTaskManager Portable
Take control of running programs and processes with DTaskManager Portable

Whatever version of Windows you are using, the built in Task Manager tool can be used to monitor and control running programs and processes, giving you the option of closing anything which is proving to be problematic or unstable. DTaskManager Portable is a free alternative that grants you even greater control over your computer and comes with the added benefit of running from a USB drive.

The utility provides you with three different ways of terminating programs and process you no longer need to be running. The standard method sends a request to the process and attempts to perform a regular, neat termination. You can also use a forced termination if this fails to work, but this could be interrupted by a dialog box generated by the application.

DTaskManager Portable gives you the option of performing an advanced forced termination which will close any application or process and ignore any dialog that may be generated. A handy feature of the program is the option of selecting multiple programs and processes so they can all be terminated in one fell swoop.

If you are trying to balance system resources when carrying out a hardware intensive task, the option to pause and resume processes will prove very useful. This enables you to suspend any tasks you do not need to be running right now so you can concentrate on something else, before resuming from where you left off.

Verdict:

A couple of handy options that are not already offered by Windows, but this is not a tool that is going to be used every day.

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.
