Windows 7: FREE Great Programs for Windows 7

24 Feb 2011   #1411

Windows 10 Home, 64 bit

Not sure if it's been suggested yet, but Syncback Freeware is a great program. I'm using it to replace Synctoy which for me missed a lot. I think it should be on the list.

What a great Recommendation from StalkeR! Not only does AIMP 2 sound and look great, but it uses a small fraction of the system resources that WMP does while doing it...

Speckie is an add-on to the Internet Explorer web browser. It provides an inline spell checking capability similar to that found in other web browsers such as Firefox and Chrome.
Brink the 1st snip below was posted by our yowanvista over at neowin forums that this add on wont work in the reply box on vbulletin forums (thats us/vista/seven/eight forums) and only works in the title box (see 2nd screenshot as test by me).

Windows 7 Pro x 2/Windows 10 Home/10 Pro//Windows 10 Insider Preview ?

I have found a good free screen capture program called PicPick that is free for home users and has tons of features. (see link)

PicPick is user friendly and full of features for creating your image, suitable for software developers, graphic designers and home user.

It is an all-in-one program that provides full-featured screen capture tool, intuitive image editor, color picker, color palette, pixel ruler, protractor, crosshair and even whiteboard.

It has not only everything what you need, but it loads fast, sits quietly in the system tray until needed.

This software is provided as freeware for only personal use. In this case, you are granted the right to use this program free of charge.
For All Windows (Fully support Windows 7)

Note: The Scrolling Window feature works perfectly on IE 9 RC and also works on FF 3.6.13 (although scrolls slowly).

The only successful way I have found to use the
Scrolling Window feature in FF beta 12 is to right click PicPick icon then navigate to > screen capture > show capture bar. After you see capture bar enable full screen in FF beta 12. On the screen capture bar select Scrolling Window move hand to bottom of screen and click to begin capture.

Otherwise all of the rest of the features seem to work well.

Windows 7 32bit

Don't know if it can enter into this category but I can suggest the CursorFX tool from Stardock, which give the possibility to replace Windows cursors by custom animated cursors.

The program is free but there is a pro version which gives you more features such as adding sounds to the clicks, adding custom trails, etc... - Your Edge In Software

Besides, I've created a cursor pack which contains Mario hand cursors: - Your Edge In Software
