Notepad2 4.1.25
A feature-packed, developer-oriented Notepad replacement

Notepad is perhaps the most basic of all Windows applets, with little changed since it first appeared in Windows 1.0, back in 1985. It doesn't seem that Microsoft are too interested in adding more features, then, so if you'd prefer a more powerful text editor then you'll probably have to locate and install one yourself. And we have the perfect candidate in mind.

Notepad2 loads quickly, looks a lot like Notepad, and is primarily designed to work with plain text files - but it manages to cram in many extra features. So there's direct support for many different encodings (ANSI, Unicode, UTF-8) and line endings (Windows, Mac, Unix), helping ensure that your recipients can read whatever you create. Line numbers and automatic text indents are particularly useful. And the Find and Replace dialogs are greatly extended, with options to match case, match whole words, match just the beginning of a word, use regular expressions, and more.

Automatic syntax highlighting makes it easier to read HTML, JavaScript, CSS and XML documents. There are syntax schemes for many programming languages, too, and if your favourite isn't included then you can add support yourself.

A range of other developer-oriented features will help to clean up source code: select a block of text and you can indent or unindent it, strip trailing blanks, compress white space, remove blank lines and so on.

And perhaps best of all are the productivity-boosting features that just make your life easier. So, for example, you're able to open multiple document windows, view recently opened documents, or save commonly-used files in a Favourites window for speedy access later.

Verdict:

A tiny text editor that's full of high-end features. There's no built-in documentation, though, so beginners may struggle to find their way around for a while

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.
