  4. Windows Command Prompt icon

    C'mon.

    • ...
    A picture of cmd, with the name blacked out.
  5. Powershell ISE icon

    I'm sure there are more advanced IDEs for Powershell, but I've really come to like ISE. Plus, it's pre-installed, and has IntelliSense. As my skill in PS gets better, I'm sure I'll find something bigger and better.

    • IDE
    • FreeProprietary
    • Windows
    • ...
    Viewing command help
  6. PowerShell icon

    So great. I've finally outgrown AutoIt and now I'm playing... with POWER.

    • ...

  7. Utilities, portable

    Usually portable and launched from a network path when working on other computers

  8. Regshot icon

    Lovely companion for finding obscure keys associated with Windows settings

    • FreeOpen Source
    • Windows
    • PortableApps.com

  9. WMI Explorer icon

    Lovely companion for any scripting involving WMI

    • FreeOpen Source
    • Windows
    • ...
    Main application window when browsing WMI
  10. Speccy icon

    Speccy is an advanced System Information tool for your PC, available as installer version and as portable version in 24 languages. It does a quick scan of your machine and gives you a complete rundown of every piece of gear that's in your computer.

    • ...
    Main Window
  11. Sysinternals Suite icon

    A must-have for IT.

    • ...
    Sysinternals Suite screenshot 1
  12. WinDirStat icon

    Alternative to TreeSize Free for network paths

    • ...
    Folder sorted after their foldersize
  13. TreeSize icon

    Super-fast, lightweight way to tell where space is being taken up, especially on computers with many user profiles. Only bug I've noticed is that it reports Last Modified Dates as the current date as it scans each folder (but doesn't actually change them in the filesystem).

    • ...
    The main window is split into the file system tree on the left and the details view on the right.
  14. Defraggler icon

    The more SSDs we have, the less relevant this is. But until we only have SSDs, it'll be useful.

    • ...
    Defraggler screenshot 1
  15. Explorer++ icon

    Extremely useful since you can't really run an elevated instance of Windows Explorer while on another person's profile.

    • ...
    details view
  16. CrystalDiskInfo icon

    Very useful for checking HDD status. Anime girls are really starting to encroach on the developer's apps though. And their website.

    • ...

  17. CCleaner icon

    Not the smartest thing to use, but it can come in handy. Especially when I need to uninstall something without logging the current user out, but I'm too lazy to find the string in the registry and run it in a console. Should probably find an... ALTERNATIVE TO it, huh?

    • ...
    General Cleaner
  18. Non-standard, installed

    Things that aren't part of a standard image that I keep installed (i.e. non-portable) on computers I regularly use.

  19. Password Safe icon

    Having upwards of seven accounts (two domains, one standard and one elevated on each, plus multiple EHR accounts) along with many special user accounts, I've come to depend on this every day. The cmd and autorun features, as well as the ability to alias entries, makes it even better.

    • Windows
    • PortableApps.com
    • Linux
    • Flathub

  20. Google Chrome icon

    Because I've already signed my life over to Google, and IE is a pain to use. Although it's become resource-hungry as hell lately. It's almost like lightweight, non-bloated browsers can't exist in the current era of web design.

    • Web Browser
    • FreeProprietary
    • Mac
    • Windows

    Locate files and folders by name instantly.
  22. Dropbox icon

    My primary backup service.

  23. Keypirinha icon

    As primarily a keyboard-over-mouse user, having a fast application launcher/calculator/etc is indispensable alongside Everything (with which it integrates)

    • ...
    smart search
  24. Notepad++ icon

    A must alongside Powershell ISE for scripting and general text file editing.

    • ...

  25. 7-Zip icon

    Free and lightweight. Until Microsoft builds in support for more than just ZIP and CAB archives, this will be necessary should you come across a RAR archive. Wish they'd work on a nicer GUI though.

    • File Archiver
    • FreeOpen Source
    • Mac
    • Windows
    • Linux
    • BSD
    • PortableApps.com
    • ReactOS

  26. Paint.NET icon

    For simple image editing needs beyond mspaint

    • ...
    Paint.NET screenshot 1
  27. Lightscreen icon

    Super-minimal screenshot app that has exactly enough features without going overboard. For that, there's ShareX.

    • ...
    Main dialog
  28. Volume2 icon

    Basically just for the ability to change volume by scrolling over the taskbar.

    • ...
    Volume2 screenshot 1
  29. WinMerge 2011 icon

    Between Dropbox, my user profile, and multiple network paths, I eventually need to figure out what changes I've made to scripts and what the recent or best version of something is.

    • Diff Tool
    • FreeOpen Source
    • Windows
    • PortableApps.com
    • Wine
    • ...
    WinMerge 2011 screenshot 1
  30. Hashtab icon

    Supports a buttload of algorithms, and doesn't feel like a separate app since it sits in file properties as a tab. It could be a little faster, but it gets the job done.

    • ...
    Hashtab screenshot 1
  31. SpeedCrunch icon

    Honestly this isn't totally necessary, but I always seem to find it installed.

    • Calculator
    • FreeOpen Source
    • Mac
    • Windows
    • Linux
    • PortableApps.com
    • ...

    • Windows
    • Android
