If you’re a coder, you could prefer exquisite text, but a graphic designer will spend the majority of his time in Photoshop. But, regardless of what you do for a living, there are a few pieces of Windows software that everyone can benefit from. Hello there, in today’s article, we’ll look at several lesser-known yet essential Windows applications.
#1 At night, Flux warms up your computer display. Flux is now a must-have program for everyone who spends late nights in front of a computer.
According to studies, blue light from your computer screen suppresses melatonin, affecting your sleep cycle. However, depending on the time of day, this little software adjusts the brightness and color of your monitor. If you’re working in Photoshop in a hurry, make sure to turn it off. If you’re performing any color-sensitive work, make sure to turn it off.
PhotoRec. #2 Files that were mistakenly deleted can recover. It’s a robust data recovery program that can help you recover files that mistakenly deleted. Alternatively, corrupt hard disks could be the source of the problem. PhotoRec, unlike Recuva (another popular data recovery tool), does not have a graphical user interface.
It’s instead a command-line interface with a severe learning curve. But believe me when I say that it is more powerful and has more choices for data recovery than any other free data recovery program. Check out the link in the description for a detailed explanation on how to use PhotoRec.
#3 Eraser is a tool that used to remove smudges Remove all sensitive information. Now that we know that, we may use data recovery software to effortlessly recover erased files.
Let’s imagine we have sensitive data that we want to permanently erase.
In these circumstances, you should use Eraser. This little malware overwrites your data numerous times, rendering it unrecoverable by any other data recovery software.
Wizmouse is number four. Scroll between windows that aren’t open. If you’re working with multiple windows at the same time, such as writing a document and viewing the web on Chrome, you’ll have to first click on the appropriate window and then use the scroll bar on your mouse to scroll down on the browser.
Wizmouse, on the other hand, allows you to just hover your mouse over a document and begin scrolling without altering the focus. In a nutshell, it allows scrolling in non-active windows. This may not appear to be a big problem to some of you, but trust me when I say that it will enhance your productivity in the long run. Fun fact: This is a standard feature in Mac and Linux, although it has eluded Windows for many years.
ClipX is #5. Manager of clipboard history We frequently use copy paste choices.
The previous text, however, is removed from the clipboard when we copy a new text. Right. ClipX saves all of your copied objects, whether they’re text, images, or screenshots, on a separate clipboard so you can easily copy them for later use.
#6 Spotify is a free music streaming service. I’m sure most of you are familiar with Spotify, which is an audio streaming service with millions of songs organized by mood, genre, playlist, and other factors. Spotify should be used instead of YouTube or local storage to stream music.
If you live in India or another location where it isn’t available, you can still use a VPN to download it. I’ll include a link to the tutorial in the description.
MyLockbox is #7. On Windows, you can hide folders. Mylockbox is a simple tool for hiding and password-protecting your folders, as the name implies. But, unlike the typical ‘hidden folder’ options on Windows, myLockbox also prevents the contents of the folder from displaying in the Windows search, and it’s considerably faster at concealing and showing files because it doesn’t use encryption like truecrypt. Overall, for many average computer users, it is ideal folder hiding software.
Though it has recently begun to include bloatware, make sure to pick the custom installation option when executing the setup.
Popcorn Time is #8. Torrent movies can be streamed. If you need to view a television show or a film, you must first download it from a torrent site and then watch it later. Right? However, you may immediately stream torrents while they are downloading in the background with popcorn time. In other words, you do not have to wait for the download to complete.
Popcorn Time is a free open source application that works on all versions of Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. However, while popcorn time is not unlawful in and of itself, streaming copyright movies is.
9 Autohotkey. Keystrokes and mouse clicks are automated. This app is similar to tasker for Android. It allows you to automate time-consuming tasks.
For example, we must repeatedly type our email address or open our favorite folder or application throughout the day. Instead of performing it manually, we may use Autohotkey to automate it. For example, it will autocomplete my email address if I write predefine term. With the click of a button, I can open a favorite folder or application. These are only a few basic examples.
However, because it has a built-in programming language, you can do some pretty cool things with it. And you’ll be able to automate your life for good.
#10 ChromePass is a password manager. Usernames and passwords are stolen. Since you’ve traveled this far, you’ve earned a reward. So this next program is pure evil, since it allows you to obtain a victim’s password in just 5 seconds. So all you have to do is run this little application on the victim’s machine, and it will display all of the passwords that the user has saved in their browser.
It’s best to utilize it to recover a forgotten password or check your system’s venerability. But if you want to have a good time with your pals, go ahead; I won’t judge you. These were some of the lesser-known but essential Windows apps.
I hope this essay has taught you anything new.
