Apps every windows user should be using I think-

1) File Converter
The file converter as the name suggests is a tool to convert files but there's a twist so with file converter you can convert any file to a different format.
With the right click context menu I can just right click on a png file and convert it to jpeg or any other image format now what's even more awesome is that you can select multiple files at once right click on them and batch convert them
Now it takes some time when there's multiple files but yeah it works now as you can see there are a number of conversion presets and you can customize things.
For example in jpeg you can set the quality scale and even set it to rotate the image now the default settings work for me and i think it'll work for most people but yeah you can set things up now file converter is an open source free app and it supports most image audio video and document formats.
Next up sound switch is a very simple but super handy app that i found incredibly useful now this app lets you switch between multiple playback devices with a simple keyboard shortcut.
So say i'm listening to an audio on my speakers but i want to move the audio to my headphones well i press the hotkey i've set.
I can again move it back to the laptop speakers with the same hotkey now this is very useful and I like that you can also set a hotkey to switch microphones and sound switch also lets you create profiles where you can set the app to switch to your headphones or your laptop speakers depending on the app you open.
3) Taskbar X
One thing I really liked about windows 10x's ui is the cleaner taskbar I mean let's face it the windows taskbar can get really cluttered when taskbar x moves the taskbar icons to the center just like windows 10x and that's not on you can also make the taskbar look cooler you can enable a transparent taskbar a taskbar with a blur effect which i like the most and as you see there are a lot more themes.
There which look really cool also you can set the opacity colors etc and you can change the animations on the taskbar when you open apps minimize them etc so taskbar x is another open source app so yeah you can get it for free.

So the native clipboard feature in windows 10 is good but it's not very feature-rich and while there are a lot of third-party clipboard apps out there.
I like ditto and i know it does not look the coolest or very modern but it has some of the very important features first up it stores text links images and you can just double click on an item to copy it again.
Also it lets you set the number of copies you want to keep i have set it to 5000 so whenever i need to go back to something i copied a long time back it will be here in detail and as you can see there's also a search option so i can even search the clipboard now there are a lot more options including the option to set your own hotkey for the clipboard.

The built-in search tool in windows 10 is good it's decent but i think everything is the search tool you should be using on windows.
First up it's crazy fast so here's me searching for a while on the windows 10 search and everything side by side and as you can see how the results are being updated in real-time and everything I type is just way faster.
I mean everything returns results almost instantly and while I use it for just this fast instant search for files and folders you can customize things to make your search even better plus I'm using the everything toolbar on my laptop which adds everything searches to the windows taskbar along with the search box see everything is very popular among Windows users.
