XnShell
An easier way to work with images from Explorer

XnShell is an Explorer shell extension which provides several useful image-related tools.

It allows you to view an image without double-clicking, or turning on the Preview pane, for example: just right-click, select XnView and you'll see a thumbnail (plus its resolution and bit depth) in the context menu.

There are simple options to rotate the image by fixed amounts (or according to the EXIF tag), flip it, or edit its IPTC tags.

You're able to convert your selected files directly to GIF, BMP, JPG, PNG, PCX, TIF and TGA from the context menu.

A separate "Convert..." option opens a dialog with more formats, resize options, and the ability to set your output folder.

There are menu items to send the image to the clipboard, or upload it to ImageShack, which immediately puts it online and ready for sharing (no registration required).

It's also easy to set the chosen image as your desktop wallpaper.

If you don't need any of these features then they can be removed from the menu via XnShell's Options dialog, where you can also configure the program's look and feel (size and quality settings of the image thumbnails, for instance).

Verdict:

XnShell doesn't do anything too surprising, but if you regularly work with images from Explorer then its integration should save you a little time.

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.
