whatsapp

Windows 10 Mobile is about to receive the latest cumulative update and, with the end of the support, various operating system features will cease to function.

The best software to create Bootable USB

 

images
If you want to create bootable USB sticks at computer startup you may need one of the software listed below. In fact, it often happens to put the operating system on your pen and you have to extract the file archive. If you extract it normally with an archive software (winzip, 7zip, etc.) it can happen that it does not start when the PC starts up. Then you will need to extract it and install the boot files with one of the following software

 

RUFUS [WIN + MAC + LINUX]

rufus_142908.png

It is absolutely the best software to create pens and bootable usb devices. Works with windows, linux and mac. I recommend it especially for windows and mac while for linux it’s better its dedicated netbootin software

https://rufus.ie

 

UNETBOOTIN [LINUX]

unetbootin_96538

It only works for linux. The advantage of this software is that it allows you to automatically download the most common versions of Linux distros.

https://unetbootin.github.io

 

UNIVERSAL USB INSTALLER [WINDOWS]

universal-usb-installer_94974

It would be the possible alternative to RUFUS because USB universal only works on Windows. Although RUFUS is ideal you will never have the certainty that it starts as it should.

https://www.emclient.com/download

 

bluemail

The Best Sofware PDF and alternative to Acrobat Reader

pdf

 

acrobatreader

ADOBE ACROBAT READER DC

It is obviously the main software for viewing pdf files although it does not have functions to modify the text, such as highlighting some sentences or notes next to the text. It can also be a bit heavy for some PCs.
The premium version allows editing of files

https://get.adobe.com/it/reader/otherversions/

 

 

foxitreader

FOXIT READERΒ 

As popularity is the most popular software that makes it among the most viable alternatives to acrobat reader.
Compared to acrobat reader, it has some more functions: highlighting and writing notes. In recent years it has become a bit heavy.

sumatrapdf

SUMATRA PDF

Sumatra PDF is a slim, free, open-source PDF/DjVu/EPUB/XPS/CHM/CBR/CBZ/MOBI viewer for Windows. Sumatra has a minimalistic design. Simplicity has a higher priority than a lot of features. Its small and starts up very fast.

Its designed for portable use: its just one file with no external dependencies so you can easily run it from external USB drive.

PDF-XChange Viewer

PDF-XChange Viewer

PDF-XChange Viewer is an alternative viewer for PDF files that enables you to view and annotate PDF files.
It is a very light software but has a very spartan graphic.

The Best IMG viewer for PC (windows)

image viewer
The Best Image Viewer Software

When we view images with windows, we can experience heavy slowdowns. The winodws viewer software is not very light and so it is necessary to install third-party software that allows us to open images in a few moments and also to edit images with advanced tools.

Here you will find the best software for the windows viewer alternative:

 

IrfanView

irfanview_94948

I think it’s the best combination of lightness and functionality. It is suitable for both professionals and home users. It recognizes numerous files and allows you to modify them and even convert them. The only flaw is that the graphic is a bit spartan. But the software is really lightning-fast and full of features

https://www.irfanview.com

 

 

FastStone Image Viewer

faststone-image-viewer_79198

This is also a great viewer. It probably also contains more features than IrfanView but I don’t like the graphics and layout. Although it has the image directories management, at the first click of the file the image will be displayed in full screen and the toolbars are arranged on the various sides of the screen. However, it is still a valid alternative to the windows viewer.

XnView [windows + MAC]

xnviewmp_74024

It has numerous features and a discrete graphic. Recommended because it is also available on MAC.

The Best Video Player (software) for PC

BestVideoplayerPC
The Best Videoplayer for PC

01 VLC [win+linux+mac]

vlcplayer

It is by far the best video player for windows. For windows it is almost a necessity to have it installed. In addition to recognizing noisy files and having advanced video controls, it allows you to record video clips with just two clicks: by clicking on rec at the beginning and end of the instant you wish.

https://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.it.html

 

02 MPC HC

mpc-hc player

It is the best alternative to VLC. It is very light, has many functions and recognizes many video formats. It is included in the codec installation package. It is obviously present only for windows.

https://codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_mega.htm

 

04 SMS PLAYER [win+linux+mac]

smsplayerBest

It is the best alternative to VLC after MPC. It can also be installed on MAC and LINUX. I don’t really like graphics, but it has many features and controls for the video.

https://www.smplayer.info/en/downloads

 

03 MPV [win+linux+mac]

mpvplayer

It supports a large number of video formats. It does not require installation and is very light even due to a defect: it does not have a real graphic interface but a small bar is displayed when the mouse cursor moves.

https://mpv.io/installation/

 

05 WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER

windowsmediaplayer

After decades .. it still remains a good video player integrated into the windows

BEST MusicPlayer Software for PC [2019]

bestmusicplayerPC
Best Music Player for PC (2019)

 

01 MUSICBEE

musicbee_82413

Probably the best music player. It recognizes many audio formats, has many functions, is light and has a discrete graphics.
It is the ideal software for creating playlists.
You can play, burn, copy CDs, listen podcasts, convert audio formats, and much more…

https://getmusicbee.com

 

03 MEDIAMONKEY

mediamonkey_76691

The best alternative to muscbee. The graphics are less sharp and wide for the playlists which is therefore smaller for playslists.

https://www.mediamonkey.com/download/

 

02 AIMP

aimp_71384

Many consider it a good music player but I don’t like the graphics. It also gave me errors after installation

https://www.aimp.ru/?do=download

 

04 ITUNES

itunes_96570

Itunes as well as being a portal and a store to buy and download the original music is also a player. With the apple software you can also download songs from the CD or watch movies from the DVD. It has the flaw of being a bit heavy software.

https://www.apple.com/itunes/

 

05 MPC-HC

mpc-hc_69886

This is one of the most comfortable and lightweight players. It also Allows you to watch movies, setting subtitles and language. Install it with codecs, which are essential for viewing some video formats. It must not be confused with windows media player classic that was present in the old versions of windows and that has been replaced by windows media player

https://www.codecguide.com

 

06 WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER

windows-media-player_53269

Still remains a valid player; you find it already included in winodws. You can also watch movies and copy tracks from your audio CDs (ripping)

 

07 RHYTHMBOX

rhythmbox_82412

Is the best music player for LINUX
