Windows PowerToys Preview

6 September 2019


Microsoft has released a preview of the new Windows PowerToys utilities. Meant to be the spiritual successor of the old Windows 95 PowerToys, the latest batch of these small tweaking utilities is for Windows 10 and includes FancyZones and Shortcut Guide. More will be added later, and users can also create their own PowerToys.



AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 19.9.1

5 September 2019


AMD has released the Adrenalin Edition 19.9.1 driver for the HD 7700, HD 8500 series and above on Windows 7 and 10. This driver improves support for Gears 5 and the Vulkan API, as well as providing bug fixes.



Windows Updates

4 September 2019


Microsoft has acknowledged the bug in the latest update for Windows 10 Version 1903 which can result in Cortana using large amounts of CPU resources unnecessarily. However, it has not done this in the normal manner, which is to add it to the list of Known Issues on the Update's Page, rather it has posted it on Twitter.


Update: Microsoft has now added this as a Known Issue on the Update's Page. I've written an editorial on this on the Site Updates page.



Office Updates

4 September 2019


Microsoft has released its latest Updates for the Office Suite.



Firefox 69.0

4 September 2019


Mozilla has released Version 69.0 of the Firefox browser. The changes in this major update include improved CPU prioritization in Windows 10, strengthening of Enhanced Tracking Protection, the Block Autoplay setting now has the option of blocking audio and video, removal of the 'Always Activate' option for the Flash plugin, and the disabling of userChrome.css and userContent.css loading by default - if you want any customizations in these files to execute at launch, you need to set toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to True in about:config. This update also provides security and bug fixes.
