It has been a while since we saw the last update of Rufus, a simple program to easily create a bootable USB Drive.

Just in time with the upcoming Windows 10 May update. This if you need to make a bootable USB stick to install your new Windows 10 Update. After a successful track record, the developer has come up with Rufus 3.14, with some fixes and improvements that have been made to the tiny program. Down below, you can see what’s fixed and changed in this new release.
