Windows Tools

I have been working with Microsoft Windows my entire professional life. Starting with DOS and Windows 3.11 up to Windows 11 today. Over time, I’ve built up a stock of tools that I can’t do without. Windows Software that is essential for me to get things done.

So that I have them on the radar whenever there’s a new machine on my desk, here’s the Trello-supported list of my favourites.
