Six essential tools that every Windows user requires

Almost 90% of the world uses Windows, but the most used programs are not pre-installed in the Windows by default. In this list of tools, I will list out the tools that are must haves and provide huge functionality to your existing Windows installation.

Notepad plus plus

The simple notepad that comes with Windows is quite outdated and should be replaced with a well-enhanced software. Notepad plus plus is a third-party program that is freely available and provides all the needs for your common editing, programming, and various other functions.

Mozilla Firefox


Although Windows has updated Internet Explorer in the Windows 10 version but still you need a very good quality third-party browser that can add add-ons, have compatibility with various scripts and other things. My recommended browser would be Firefox, and it has many add-ons for almost all tasks and provide various web development functions with it.



Flux is a small program that helps you in changing your screen according to the time in your Zone. It dims, increases and changes the color of the screen according to your sky, whether and room conditions.

7 zip


Although Windows contains its own Windows archiving facility, that does not help in comprising large files to the extent that we want. It also does not have features like splitting the archive into various files so that they can be uploaded to almost all file sharing sites. Seven zip helps in compressing the files very thin 7–zip archives that can be split into any amount of small archives. 7-zip archives can be easily extracted using 7-zip or win rar.

Flash fxp


Windows does have the facility to export files using FTP, but that can only be done using command prompt that is not that flexible. Using programs like Flash fxp, FileZilla, and others, you can have a GUI interface to deal with FTP things.


It is a must have tool for anyone who want to clean up their windows completely and increase its speed by doing so. CCleaner completely erases all the waste files on your system and provide you the functionality to choose between – what to delete and what not to.

Microsoft Office


Windows created by Microsoft, but very little of this editing can be done on it by default. You need to install Microsoft Office, which mainly consist of Microsoft Office Excel, Microsoft Office Word, and Microsoft Office PowerPoint. It has many other tools like one note, access, Outlook et cetera but the earlier 3 mentioned are the most used.
