I'm picky about the utilities I use in Windows. I don't like clutter, and I especially don't like anything that slows down the experience of using Windows.
Recently, while assembling a group of new PCs for testing, I had an opportunity to give a thumbs up or thumbs down to some programs I've used for years.
This collection of seven utilities represents the utility software I install whenever I set up a new PC.
Some of these tools are specialized and reflect both the kind of work I do and the way I work. But a handful are universally useful. Everyone needs a password manager, and a clipboard extender? Well, let's just say you won't realize how much you need one until you try it.
