First Programs I install on a fresh Windows build. 2018 edition.

The time is almost upon me to do a fresh install of Windows 10. I like to do this every so often, and when service updates get released (every 6 months now) it seems like the best time to do it. With Windows 10 build 1803 around the corner, here’s the applications I’ll be (re)installing straight away again. Anything else I should be using or as a consideration to replace any of the below? Let me know in the comment field.

  • 7-Zip
  • Adobe Premiere Pro & Photoshop
    I just can’t find anything as user friendly or with as much support as Premiere Pro when it comes to video editing.
  • iCloud
    To sync firefox up and Sarafi on iOS and to also automatically download photos from my iCloud so I can transfer them to my NAS for backup purposes
  • John’s Background Switcher
    A lot like the Microsoft bing one where you get a new desktop image every day, although I quite like this one and the sources it uses
  • Lenovo Vantage
  • Logitech Webcam software
  • Microsoft Office
  • Firefox
  • MPC-HC
    A media player that is as good if not better than VLC
  • Google Music Manager
  • MusicBrainz Picard
  • Oracle virtualbox
  • Private Internet Access VPN software
  • Putty
  • Spotify
  • VeraCrypt
  • WinSCP
  • Notepad++
  • Switch Music Converter
