Machete Lite
Trim unwanted frames from your AVI and WMV videos with this simple lossless editor

Machete Lite is a simple video editor which makes it easy to trim surplus content from AVI and WMV videos. And it does so without re-encoding them, so you can remove an unwanted intro from a clip and save the enhanced results, without any loss in quality.

The program is extremely basic, but this does at least make it very easy to use. Open a video and you can play it as normal; you're able to step through, frame by frame if necessary, to find the footage you need (or, perhaps, don't need); select the beginning and end of the section you'd like to trim, and you can then delete it at a click.

There are multiple ways to carry out most actions, which again helps to improve usability. So to step through your video, for instance, you can drag a slider, click a toolbar button, choose a menu option, press the left or right arrow keys, or use dedicated keyboard shortcuts.

And although the program is really just about trimming unwanted frames, there are one or two small extras on offer here. So a Tag Editor helps you to edit the file's metadata, for instance; you can save the current selection as a separate video, or just save the current frame as an image (though only in BMP format).

Please note, the authors also produce a more powerful commercial version of Machete. This supports many more formats (MP4, MOV, FLV and so on), can extract the audio stream from a movie or replace it with another file, and includes a few other capabilities. It's yours for $19.95 and you can find out more at the Machete site.

Verdict:

It's extremely basic, but if you're just looking for a way to trim your AVI/ WMV videos then Machete is a quick and easy way to get the job done.

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.
