ScanFS
Quickly locate the files you need

ScanFS is a capable file search tool with some unusual extras.

The program starts much as you'd expect. Type a file mask (*.mp3), choose a starting folder, click Enter, and ScanFS crawls through the folder tree and displays any matches.

You could also search for multiple file masks (*.mp3;*.flac), and filter the results by size ("more than" x, "less than" y), or created and modified dates.

Any results may be filtered further (*.jpg containing the text "Rome"), and there's optional previewing for images or plain text files.

ScanFS also supports searching text file contents by simple plain text or regular expressions. If Preview is enabled, your text file appears with any matches highlighted.

There's even a search and replace option to update text across all your files at once.

ScanFS offers simple file management tools, with right-click options to copy, move, delete or create an archive of your results files.

Your current search parameters may be saved for instant recall later, or you can launch a new ScanFS instance (optionally as an administrator) to run another search.

Surprisingly, there's even a command line interface which turns the program into a sort-of grep. Here's an extreme example.

scanfs.exe /file=*.txt /path=c:\temp /s /da=2007-1-1 /db=2008-1-1 /dt=c /size_min=20m /size_max=30m /contents=123 /output=c:results.txt /exit

Verdict:

A well-designed desktop search tool, particularly useful for its file management, search and replace options.

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.
