Notepad3
A powerful Notepad replacement

Notepad3 is a Scintilla-based text editor with some Notepad2 code included, and a few additions of its own. These include code folding, support for bookmarks, the ption to mark all occurrences of a word, word auto-completion, syntax highlighting support and more.

If you don't recognise the names, it's essentially a smart plain text editor which you can use just like Notepad, but has plenty of useful extras just below the surface.

There's drag and drop editing, for instance (select a block, drag and drop it somewhere else); case conversion; bookmarking; powerful find and replacement with regular expression support; "always on top" and transparent window support; a zoom tool, extended clipboard, line manipulation tools, file change notifications, and more.

The program is aimed at developers, so you also get syntax highlighting, line numbers, code folding, visual brace matching and more.

If you're not a developer then you don't have to use, or even see most of these features. Click the View menu, clear "Line Numbers" and "Long Line Marker" and Notepad3 will look much like any other editor.

Verdict:

Notepad3 is a capable Notepad replacement with some worthwhile additions of its own, especially bookmarking and the extended syntax highlighting. If you'll use these extras it's worth a try.

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.
