Network Drive Control
Automatically map the network drives you need

Network Drive Control is a free tool which automatically maps the appropriate network drives for whatever networks you use.

For example, you could have the program map a backup drive on your home network, a completely different set of drives at work, and none at all if you log on to a network you've never accessed before.

Setting this up takes a little work. You must remove any automatic mappings you've set up in Explorer, then manually add the details of every drive you'd like to access: network name, the local drive letter to use, the remote drive path, your user ID and password.

Once it's up and running the program should work largely automatically, although there are tweaks available if you need them. If automatic mapping doesn't always work, you can have the program wait before connecting drives, or disable automatic mapping entirely and leave you to connect drives on demand.

If you run into any other problems, a local Help file provides some useful information. Example: if you connect to a network via a VPN, it'll seem to be a different network than when you connect directly. What to do? Creating two separate mappings should solve the problem-- the Help file explains all.

Changelog


1. Changed the way the display refreshes when the "Move Up" & "Move Down" buttons are used so that it refreshes faster. 2. Fixed typos in help file.

Verdict:

Network Drive Control is very much a niche product, but if you're in the target audience - someone who connects to multiple networks and perhaps maps several drives on each one - the program could save you some 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.
