Q-Dir (32-bit)
Manage your files with ease using Q-Dir

Windows Explorer is the tool built into Windows that can be used to navigate and organise folders. It can be used in a couple of ways - as individual folder windows or as a file navigator with a tree structure. While both options have their uses, they also have limitations and this goes some way to explaining the sheer number of Explorer-replacement tools that exist.

Q-Dir is one such utility, but rather than offering the dual-paned view favoured by many programs, this software goes a little further by feature four panes. This Quadro-View approach means that it is easier to work with numerous folders at the same time, or copy and move files between media with ease.

Each pane of the program can be used to display a different folder or drive and colour coding can be used to highlight files of a particular type. Built in support for .zip and .cab files makes it easy to work with compressed file formats and an integrated FTP client means that files can be easily uploaded and downloaded from your web space.

A much requested feature that is missing from Explorer can be found in Q-Dir - the option to print directory contents. There's also built in previewing of a number of common file types and a screen magnifier to enlarge sections of the screen. Q-Dir is everything you could ask of a file browser and more.

Q-Dir 7.53 brings these changes:

•  Important updates of the language files in the Quad Explorer
• Small corrections in Q-Dir as well as improvements

Verdict:

As Explorer replacements go, Q-Dir is one of the best, offering unique features that are simply not found elsewhere.

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.
