Fing 2.2 on Windows
Fing doesn’t provide a user-friendly interface when used with your desktop or laptop.

Staying on top of what devices are currently connected to your network can be a real chore. Your router may have some basic options available through its web-based interface, but if you’re looking to take a more detailed audit of your network and what’s connected to it (overtly or otherwise), you’ll need Fing.

If you plump for the desktop version, don’t expect a flashy user interface – instead, everything is run from the command line or Terminal.

Windows users should opt to add Fing to the system path for the current user (or all users) during installation, making it easy to launch Fing from its Start menu shortcut or any command prompt by simply typing fing. After installation, Mac and Linux users should type sudo fing instead.

You’ll then be prompted with a number of options that ultimately are used to build up the parameters under which Fing is run. It’s all quite complicated, but administrators will appreciate the power and options available. Regular users will, however, be put off and would be better served using one of the mobile apps instead, which are far simpler to use.

Users can also sign up to a monthly Fing membership, with prices starting from €5.99 (around $8.30) per month - a 15-day trial is available. Features include cloud sync, remote discovery and service monitoring. A paid-for account also unlocks some features in the mobile version, specifically the ability to view logs.

Verdict:

The lack of any user-friendly interface will limit Fing’s appeal to administrators and power users only.

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.
