    Total Commander
    TC is a Shareware Orthodox File Manager (OFM) for Windows® 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10, and Windows® 3.1. In other words it is very similar to Norton Commander for those that actually used it. The learning curve is big but it will be worth it.

    I've tried: xyplorer, xplorer2, q-dir, diropus and they all failed to suit my needs. I'm a man that always needs to run with multiple tabs/folders. For daily use I require 12 folders to be up at all times. TC was the only one to suit my needs, granted I HATE Orthodox File Managers but it's way better than xyplorer or xplorer2.

    And Windows CE, and Android, and it's great There is a clone called Double Commander which is nearly identical in functionality, but open source. I didn't switch to it to avoid spending time reconfiguring everything from scratch, but I highly recommend trying it out.

    I'm looking for a screenshot capture tool that will also allow annotation (text, graphics, lines, the works). Looking for something similar to Snipping Tool in windows (just select area, and open image for editing). Do you guys know anything good? Currently using FastStone Capture.

    When screen capturing mentioned, I can't think of any other thing than Snagit. I'm not sure about capturing lines/text but for images, it is the top one. Official site is techsmith.com

    Synergy
    Synergy combines your desktop devices together in to one cohesive experience. It's software for sharing your mouse and keyboard between multiple computers on your desk. It works on Windows, macOS and Linux.
    I'm affraid this is the only one that works correctly on all operating systems.


    Never mind - it's a flawed software. DO NOT USE IT!

    LameXP

    My favourite audio file converter

    LameXP is a graphical user-interface (GUI front-end) for various of audio encoders and decoders: It allows you to convert your audio files from one audio format to another one in the most simple way. Despite its name, LameXP is not only a front-end for the LAME MP3 encoder, but supports a wide range of output formats, including MP3, Ogg Vorbis, Opus, AAC/MP4, FLAC, AC-3 and Wave Audio. The number of supported input formats is even bigger! Furthermore LameXP not only runs on Windows XP, but also on Windows 7, 8 and 10 as well as other operating systems. 32-Bit and 64-Bit systems are supported.

    Note: Some Antivirus programs mistakenly detect Malware (Virus, Trojan, etc.) in official LameXP downloads. This is a FALSE POSITIVE!

    That's grand, but the best audio converter is...



    (Options? You don't need that... but there are a few, in case you still think you do.)

    MPV Player

    mpv is a fork of mplayer2 and MPlayer. It shares some features with the former projects while introducing many more.
    MPV is my favourite media player. It is pretty much the perfect example of a modern, minimal application.

    We need a fork of mplayer that can use the Enhanced Video Renderer under Windows I haven't been able to make hardware-accelerated video work on my hardware through any other means.

    Youtube-dl

    youtube-dl is a command-line program to download videos from YouTube.com and a few more sites. It requires the Python interpreter (2.6, 2.7, or 3.2+), and it is not platform specific. We also provide a Windows executable that includes Python. youtube-dl should work in your Unix box, in Windows or in Mac OS X. It is released to the public domain, which means you can modify it, redistribute it or use it however you like.

    f.lux

    Ever notice how people texting at night have that eerie blue glow?

    Or wake up ready to write down the Next Great Idea, and get blinded by your computer screen?

    During the day, computer screens look good—they're designed to look like the sun. But, at 9PM, 10PM, or 3AM, you probably shouldn't be looking at the sun.

    f.lux fixes this: it makes the color of your computer's display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.

    It's even possible that you're staying up too late because of your computer. You could use f.lux because it makes you sleep better, or you could just use it just because it makes your computer look better.

    You can rename files based on the tag information, replace characters or words in tags and filenames, import/export tag information, create playlists and more.
