Anyone like freeware? Have you ever installed a high end app only to use a few features? If you just need to do a quick task and need a small app to do it in, here's a listing of sites that offer free categorized software for just about anything you want to do.

If you need a good iPhone app to take quick notes this one works well enough:  abc Notes Lite  It's just a notepad type editor. Good for when you're on the go.

Great topic Bert! :)

 

MyPhoneExplorer 1.8.7 - This one lets you sync up info on your phone with your computer. Makes it easy to backup all your text messages and pics or whatever else you got stashed on your cell.

 

There is, of course, an old standby just in case you lose your cell phone: Pencil and paper!

 

:P

Simple edit and playing of video files...

 

Avidemux, edits video files.
Media Player Classic, plays them.
Media Player Classic -- Home Cinema, another player.

 

Don't know if they work on windows 10 or not. They do work on windows 7 and below.

Those old windows players are pretty good. They do the job. VLC Media Player does it better. No bullshit, includes most of the codecs you'll need to play all the media files on the net. Don't know about Avidemux to edit files. VirtualDUB does the job fairly well, although it's a bit slow.

This site offers some pretty good trials and shareware.  Some with full version license keys. This is not warez site.

RecycleNOW - Free Removal Tool
 
RecycleNOW is a small utility that, when triggered, immediately empties the Recycle Bin.
It is meant to be a time-saver as, especially on slower computers, emptying the Bin can take a while. There is no interface, just run it and it will automatically empty the recycle bin. You can use a scheduler to run it, run it from the command line etc. Very simple, but may be useful for some.
