14 Windows Programs You Should Be Using

Sunday, June 18th, 2017 by | Filed Under: Computer Terms, Free Downloads, Windows 10

Some PC users get by using only Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook and Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge. But by just using these “got to” programs, they’re missing out on a whole wealth of features their computer can offer. But which ones are worth it, and what do they do?

Did you know about Microsoft OneNote, for example? It is a great way to collect notes from the internet, things that you type in, and even sketches you make with your stylus or fingertip. What’s more, you can share this virtual scrapbook between your devices, or with a team of like-minded colleagues.

If it’s gaming that you’re into, and you’d like to share videos of your accomplishments, try hitting Windows+G to bring up Microsoft’s supercool screen-recording function. You can set it to record just the game or app you’re using (not the whole screen), or even to reverse record the past 30 seconds of action. Upload your footage to YouTube, and prepare to become a gaming community legend!

There’s all sorts of stuff you can do with Microsoft’s hidden apps. Our new infographic highlights fourteen such forgotten programs that can transform the way you use your PC today.

Whether you want to create amazing content or just to navigate your daily workload, you probably already have the software to do it. Now, you will know where to look. To see a larger version of this graphic, just double-click on it and then click the magnifying glass to make it larger.
