I love Windows. I know it isn’t perfect but that flaw gives me room to get creative and improve the operating system that I love. So today I am going to share 5 free softwares that I use to turn Windows better then what the basic function offers.
This program replaces Windows basic file transfer system with a more powerful and sophisticated one. This program is designed to give Windows user to copy and paste at the best maximum speed possible.
TeraCopy also allows you to pause your file transfer to free up system resources and lets you continue again with a single click of the mouse.
A feature that I really find useful is that this program shows you which file failed the transfer and lets you recopy the specific problematic file again. This feature really helps when file transfer goes awry. It reduces the hassle to copy and paste again all the files to the destination.

I love notepad. I think that it is the program that I almost use everyday. But since I found out about Notepad++, I less frequently fire up notepad. Notepad++ offers an even more extensive functionality compared to the original notepad.
Notepad++ supports tabs for opening multiple documents. The program helps you do your programming by giving your code colour coding which helps a lot when you’re doing extensive programming. Oh yes it also supports multiple programming languages as well.

Who says you can’t work without Microsoft Office. Yes I agree many of us are used to it and it is easy to operate the program but here is an alternative that can save you massive bucks, it is called LibreOffice.
This office productivity software is just as good as Microsoft Office and you can open Microsoft Office files with it as well without a problem. Best of all its “Libre” which means free.

If you’ve noticed, when you uninstall some programs it will leave traces of itself in your computer instead of being completely removed. It is such a drag to go and trace it yourself and delete the unused folder of that program.
If you do not want junk in your computer than you should have Revo Uninstaller installed in your machine.
