We live in a world that is run by computers, and the most used operating system today is Windows. I mean, come on. When we hear the word “Windows”, the first thing that comes to a lot of people’s minds is a computer operating system rather than some square holes in walls that allow people to look outside their closed rooms. Chances are high that you are using a windows computer at the time of reading this article. In fact, I’m using a Windows computer too. Windows is a great operating system no doubt. But nothing is perfect. Today, I would like to talk about some applications that would help the application get closer to perfection. So, let’s get right into it!
Okay, we’ve all been there, haven’t we? Having to Alt+Tab again and again between multiple File Explorer windows? Isn’t it annoying? Having multiple folders open is an integral part of my day-to-day life. So having to Alt+Tab again and again between multiple windows kills the flow of my work and makes me want to procrastinate. QTTabBar fixes this problem by adding browser-like tabs to your File Explorer. This is a piece of software I can’t thank enough for the amount of time it has saved me. This one is an absolute must considering how much it improves one of the absolute basic applications in Windows.
Free Download Manager
An app that does what it says. It’s a download manager. Yes, it’s true we can use our browsers to download, but download speeds on browsers aren’t very strong with respect to download managers, and downloading larger files using a browser is a hassle. As the name implies, this application is free, however, I find this one better than a lot of pay-ware alternatives.
Grammar is an essential part of our speech, but so is it for our documents and text conversations. Not all of us have a good grasp of English, but some of us do. But the best of the best speakers sometimes make mistakes, and nothing is perfect. Grammarly is an application that points out the mistakes in your sentences and helps you to correct those. This is an application I use regularly, and a portion of the quality you can find in this article comes from Grammarly.
Having months of work nuked because of a dead hard drive has to be one of the most frustrating things a computer user can experience. So it is wise to monitor the health of your drives every now and then. That’s where HDD Sentinel comes in. This application shows you the health of each drive and also shows how much storage is left in each partition using a bar next to them.
Do you know what hurts even more than the death of an entire HDD? A malware that compresses all your files then demands money. In order to avoid these issues, a good malware protection system certainly does come in handy. Besides Windows Security, I’d suggest having Malwarebytes on your PC. It succeeds in picking up a significant amount of harmful material that Windows Defender fails to. I have witnessed multiple situations where Malwarebytes had come to the rescue where the computer was having serious trouble.
That’s it for today folks! Happy computing, have a great day!
