Yale
Easily monitor your system's CPU, hard drive and network activity

Yale is a small (272KB) portable tool which can monitor and display details on your system's processor, hard drive and network use.

The program lives in your system tray, and a quick right-click, Show is enough to open its panel. Here you'll see your current CPU and hard drive usage, as well as your network transfer rates for all adapters, as well as a graph revealing resource use history for the past few seconds. This display also updates as you watch, of course.

Clicking on one of the network adapters reveals even more information, as the panel expands to show traffic according to its type: TCP, UDP, HTTP, FTP, UPnP, Shared Network Folders and so on. (Although, annoyingly, this won't work unless the program has administrative rights. Right-click the executable, select Properties > Compatibility and check "Run this program as an administrator" to permanently avoid this problem in Windows Vista or 7.)

Yale has a few problems. It's not too configurable, for instance: if you're not interested in CPU or disk activity monitoring, then you can't turn those graphs off. And, even more basic, if your network adapter names are lengthy then they'll be displayed over the first network transfer speed figure, making it very difficult to read.

Still, if you'd like a network monitor which breaks traffic down by protocols then it could be handy. And, of course, as it's portable there's nothing to install, no penalty for trying it out.

Version: 1.16 · New: Minor improvements

Verdict:

It's short on configuration options, but otherwise Yale is a straightforward network monitor, particularly interesting if you'd like to see your traffic broken down into its various protocols

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.
