Share your Favorite Utility

Recommended Posts

I wanted to start this topic to discover what little program you use that is free and you use often. Something that is a useful utility that assist with everyday computing.

 

For me, it's a little Print Screen software called PrtScr, I use it everyday at work and quite often at home.

Two for me: IrfanView, great graphic formats viewer/batch conversion/adjustments/effects/etc application, for both batch texture works and photos manipulation (to an extend)

 

"It is designed to be simple for beginners and powerful for professionals."

Well for me it's GOM MEDIA PLAYER

 

Plays pretty much everything, it's small, compact and has all the options I want, add some codecs and you will rarely need anything else...

You will all laugh ....

Well, go ahead ....

The Utility Program I use most often is "Paint Shop Pro" v. 6.0 or so.

Downloaded free, years and years ago.

[i'm now on like day 1,678 of my free 30-day trial period, but it still works a treat, and I use it every day, with every sim/wargame/computer program I'm still running].

 

Some things never go out of style ....

Oh, I figure it's probably not the same one, because when I got WinMerge a year or so back I was also looking for a totally different program. I only have vague recollections of it, other than I believe the two files had different colored backgrounds as you looked at them. It was nowhere to be seen, though, and I found this one readily enough and it seems to work for the limited stuff I've done so far.
