Windows 10 Software Toplist

On this page, you find a listing of the best Windows software. Most of the applications listed here are free, with the occasional commercial program added to the listing.

If commercial software is listed here, you can be sure that it is a top of its class product that excels in its vertical.

All programs have been carefully vetted, reviewed, and virus-checked to make sure that the list is clean and uber-useful to users of the Windows operating system.

The toplist has been divided into several categories and pages for ease of access. While it would have been possible to place them all on one page, it would have grown too big in terms of size and loading time.

The decision was made to use broader categories to avoid the creation of too many pages. That’s why a category such as Security contains antivirus software, firewalls, rootkit removers and other security related programs.

Last but not least, we have also made the decision to add a software companies page to the very end, linking to developers who have earned their trust because of their excellence in the field.
