Icecream Screen Recorder
Record, edit and share videos of your desktop

Icecream Screen Recorder is a comprehensive tool for capturing still images or videos of your desktop, editing the results and sharing them with others.

The program offers a wide selection of capture types. It can grab the full screen, a freehand rectangle or specific window. There's also an option to record a fixed-size area around the mouse cursor (a 640x480 portal which follows your mouse, say), and a "last area" option to quickly repeat whatever you chose last time.

Recording can be paused and resumed with a click, or a hotkey.

You're able to draw on the video as you work, add shapes or text captions. If you're recording a software tutorial, you could click Pause at a key point, highlight one area with colour, resume for a few seconds, maybe draw an arrow somewhere else-- it's up to you.

The program records audio from microphone as well as the system speakers, allowing you to add a narration.

Videos you create and save appear in a list. You're able to preview them with a click, trim them, copy videos to the clipboard or upload them to YouTube.

The free build has a couple of major restrictions in a five-minute maximum recording time, and WEBM-only output format. But you can work your way around this by using other tools to combine clips or convert their format. Alternatively, buying the full version for around $25 lifts the restrictions and gets you more: scheduled screen recording, custom watermarks, priority support, and a lifetime licence for personal and commercial use on up to two PCs.

What's new 5.88 (see changelog for more)?

- H264 'narrow' crash fix
- Filename popup crash fix

Verdict:

A nicely-designed screen recorder with some welcome extras. Capturing a moving area around the mouse and the ability to draw on the screen could be very useful, and the trimmer is handy too. The maximum 5-minute recording time and WEBM-only recording formats are annoying, but better than plastering your clips with watermarks, and overall Icecream Screen Recorder is a likeable tool.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 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 Windows 8 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.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
