well it's time for an update [Applause] hey guys this is the patient b-bomb comm and today I'm going to show you some really useful apps and software for Windows that you're going to love but before we get started let me tell you that this video has been sponsored by ice cream PDF editor which is a free and easy to use PDF editing software I'll talk more about ice cream PDF editor at the end of this video so stay tuned for that now let's check out some great apps and software for window an ability to preview files but just using the space button Mac OS is something that I've always wanted on my Windows PC well the free QuickLook app brings exactly that it's a pretty simple app that just enables a quick preview of files using the space bar it's so easy and so handy I can just preview any file easily and I can keep pressing the down arrow to preview all the files in a folder really quickly there are no additional tools here but the preview window has an option to open the file in one of the apps you use so you can do that if you want to identify it so yeah a quick look is a fairly simple app but if you want more control with the quick look feature you can check out the seer Pro app available it will be 670 on the Windows Store Windows 10 search is pretty decent but I don't blame you if you don't find it very powerful and that's where the ule app is so handy you really brings unlaunchable windows which is very similar to spotlight or alfred on mac so basically you can just press Alt + space to open up the yulie launcher and then quickly launch apps files search for files or search for something online new calculations and a lot more it's very powerful and it's customizable do you can customize the look of the launcher and you can create custom shortcuts plus it's all free so what's not like last year Microsoft announced a new sets feature for Windows which would let you use multiple apps as tabs in a single window but that's delayed and well grupe is an app that brings a similar feature to Windows the app lets you use different apps and software in the same window in browser like tab style so as you can see I have Firefox in one tab fast own image viewer in one and the file explorer in another it's super handy and if you're worried that multiple browser travel ruined don't worry has groupie groups tabs from a single app like the browser into a single collection yes groupie is pretty awesome and it has a range of customisation options which a lot of you will like it's available in a free trial for 30 days after which you'll have to pay five dollars for the full version accessing your emails your whatsapp messages your Facebook messages your SMS is all from your PC can be quite a task well into France a super cool app that lets you access all of these in one unified interface yeah with France you can just add the services you use and as you can see there are lot of them to choose from and that's it now you can just log in with your accounts and start using everything in a single app and it's not just handy for different services I personally like to use it to access my two gmail accounts because we all know that accessing your different Gmail accounts from the browser can be a lot of pain so yeah it's definitely a very useful Windows app plus it's free so yeah it's awesome we understand now includes a pretty handy screenshot tool but if you ask me it just does not come close to share X a screenshot and screen recorder tool that's lightweight but packed with features first of all which share X you can take different types of screenshots me the usual screenshots the screenshot of a region the app window a scrolling screenshot or even set things to auto capture plus what I like is I can set actions for when the screenshot is captured so I can set share X to automatically save the screenshot upload it to a host like Google Photos and open the editing tool it's really powerful and it even lets you record your screen in the usual vampy 4 format or you can create a Jeff if you want when share X is a free tool that has you covered on all fronts so check it out almost all of us have used WinRAR and you've got annoyed with those trial expired power bucks right when it's time to switch to P zip which is a free compression tool that is feature packed most importantly lets you open almost all type of compression file formats out there and it lets you create archives in almost all the format's out there please if not only lets you create encrypted archives you can even create file archives with two-factor authentication apart from that they're all the features you can expect from a compression tool like the we need to split and join archives building file manager secure deletion of files and more if you want to laptop with 128 GB SSD or even 256 GB SSD you must have faced low storage issues well there are times when you don't have an idea what is taking up so much of a storage well check out mystery a super useful software that finds the files and folders using the most disk space on your hard drive it's simple open the tool select the drive and click on scan after which the tool shows you a visual map of your files so that you can start the large files with ease as you can see these video files are taking up the most space on my laptop and I had no idea about them I think they are from a different user account so yeah mystery is definitely handy plus it's a free software so check it out next up we have converter bot and this is for people who are tired of installing new apps to open up different files or cut for different files it's a handy little app that supports more than 300 file types so you can preview any file you want and convert them to a file type you want so let's say you have a PDF file you can just load it up and convert it into a PNG or jpg let me give you another example here's a word file so you can easily convert it to PDF jpg PNG text file and more overall converter pod is a super handy free tool to have on your Windows PC to be honest Windows 10 is volume control is not the best I mean sure you can find all the options buried inside but it's not very intuitive well if you feel the same you should check out ear trumpet which is a really powerful volume control app the app lets you control volumes of individual apps beat classic apps or absolute window store and while that is something people will definitely find handy I like the ability to quickly switch between default audio devices and the ability to move apps between playback devices so I can set a music app to play on the speaker while setting the sound of the game I'm playing to my earphones get the idea anyway ear trumpet is available for free on the Windows Store so check it out Windows 10 has support for a few multi-touch gestures but what if you want more well multi swipe lets you create your very own two finger three finger or even four finger gestures for the touchpad and the touchscreen I created a few handy touch by gestures from a laptop and they work really well so I've set two finger swipe up and swipe down to increase and decrease the volume it's so handy I've also said tip tap gestures to quickly switch between tabs in the browser in my uses two finger gestures work the best but you can always try out other ones also if you're wondering multi swipe is said to work with more synaptic sail and take or precision touchpad so yeah it should work fine on most laptops multi site is available for a free trial of fifteen days after which you'll have to get the full version at five dollars now let's talk about a sponsor's for this video ice cream PDF Editor is an easy to use PDF editor with all the features you need the software lets you edit PDF files with these you can edit objects and images annotate with text highlight areas add sticky notes and do a lot more plus doing all this is really intuitive here since there's drag-and-drop support to move objects easily or pages inside a PDF file it's so handy there are a lot of other features in Ice Cream PDF editor and it's free unlike most PDF editors so what are you waiting for
