DesktopSnowOK
Give your desktop a touch of winter magic in seconds

DesktopSnowOK is a tiny tool which can add soft, fluttering snowflakes to your desktop in a click.

Despite being only a 78KB executable, DesktopSnowOK is highly configurable. There are twelve flake styles to choose from, for instance, covering everything from tiny orbs to chunky full-sized flakes. And a host of other options (soccer balls, base balls, tennis balls and more) ensure the program will be useful - if that word really applies here - all year long.

You can also choose the number of flakes you'd like on screen at any one time, their transparency, and how quickly they should fall.

And while DesktopSnowOK isn't a Windows screen saver, you can produce a similar result by setting "Deactivation" to "If pressing a key or mouse events". Leave your PC for a while and the snow will start to fall; come back, start typing or moving the mouse and the flakes will disappear again.

If you're thinking this isn't exactly the most useful program ever, then you've probably got a point. DesktopSnowOK is portable, though, so perfect if, say, you'd simply like to add a little temporary Christmas cheer to your desktop. Just download it, run the executable to apply its wintry effects, and delete the file when and if you've had enough.

What's new in 3.78 (see history for more)?

- Some improvements for Microsoft's latest Windows 10 build
- Updating the language files in DesktopSnowOK

Verdict:

A surprisingly configurable and fun little winter addition to anyone's desktop

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.
