SkyFonts 3.0.0.33
Install and use Google Fonts offline

SkyFonts is a small tool which can install Google Fonts (Google's collection of more than 1,100 professional fonts) on a PC or Mac for offline use, automatically update them as required, even synchronise these fonts with all your devices.

For this to work you must first create a fonts.com account, if you don't have one already (click Services, sign in, and follow the instructions).

Next, click Services > Google Fonts "Manage" > Google / Fonts.com, and a browser window will open at the fonts.com site. Click Browse Google Fonts, and you'll be able to scroll through and view the various Google Fonts. If you see something you'd like to use, click SkyFonts > Add > Close, and it'll automatically be downloaded, installed and become ready for use on your computer.

By default SkyFonts sets itself up to run when your system starts. This is fine if you'll be choosing new fonts all the time, or will make particular use of the program's sync feature, say, but otherwise it's not such a good idea. Especially as the program uses a surprising amount of RAM (44MB on our test PC). But you can at least turn this off via a configuration option (click Advanced, clear "Start SkyFonts on machine startup").

Maybe we're missing something, but we couldn't see an option to remove a font from your PC, either.

Otherwise, though, SkyFonts works well enough, and it's an easy way to install some great fonts for offline use.

Verdict:

The interface needs work, but SkyFonts does make it easy to browse Google Fonts and install any favourites on your own PC

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.
