Well, we all know what PC is and the different operating systems. There are few operating systems supported by laptops and desktops. i.e. Windows, Mac OS, etc. Today, we are going to discuss the five most essential software that a PC owner should have. Actually, these softwares are of my choice.
Well, Do I have to talk about the browser? I don’t think so. You might be reading this article in the web browser. However, it is software that allows you to connect with the internet. It gives a visual interface to the user. There are lots of Brewers available on the internet like, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, etc.
#2 Media Player
The windows have its own media player- Windows Media Player. Due to some reason, it is not so much popular these days. So, we recommend VLC media player, which is free. The VLC Media Players supports multiple platforms like Linux, Mac, IOS, Android, etc. VLC is so much popular because of its simplicity and lots of features are available. You can download it here.
#3 Photo editing software
Sometimes, you have to edit some photos for your social media or for professional work. So, we recommend you to install Adobe Photoshop for this purpose. Well, this software is paid one, however, you can get a trail for a month. Actually, there are other software like, GIMP, Photo Space, etc., but Photoshop has no competitors.
Well, how much do you download from the internet? If you are a heavy downloader there is a dedicated downloading software- Internet Download Manager. It helps you download file easily and faster than the regular download process. It can download anything from the internet. Well, this also does not come free but you can try for few days before buying.
If you download videos from YouTube, you can use YouTube Downloader (YTD). But, it can download videos only from the YouTube.
Actually, Windows has its own anti-virus type software – Windows Defender. However, it does not have full functionality that other dedicated antivirus offer. For Nepal, Kaspersky Antivirus is the best one because it has officially present here in Nepal.
#6 Office software
Talking the about the office software, automatically MS Office clicks in our mind. However, there are dozens of office software available on the internet. Example: Ability Office, Apache Open Office, Libre Office, etc. We recommend you trying other software rather than MS Office because the cost is very high for this software.
7# Remote connection
Sometimes you might get into the technical problem with your PC. You need to solve the problem ASAP, what do you do? Go to the repair shop or ask help from your friend. However, you friend might not able to come because he is busy or didn’t want to come to your place. So, there remote connection software could be useful for you. This software allows you to control others computer from your computer. Team Viewer is the best and free software. There other remote connection software like, Ultra VNC, LogMeIn, Chrome Remote Desktop, etc. but Team Viewer is the best one. I highly recommend using this one.
These are seven must-have software on a Windows PC. The choices might be different for different professionals but these are the basic software that every PC owner should have on their PC.
