    dont fiddle with the memory manager of your system! lets see what the developer says, about his own product...
    http://www.pcwintech.com/about-cleanmem paragraph 4
    "4. CleanMem WILL NOT make your system faster. What CleanMem does, again, is help avoid the use of the page file on the hard drive, which is where your slow down comes from. There have been users including my self who have noticed a smoother system. A placebo effect perhaps? Who knows. I do know that CleanMem hurts nothing, and does help, to a point."

    the essentials: it doesnt accelerate your system, but it doesnt hurt. thats the reason for installing cleanmem??? :facepalm:

    gyro, spare some ram through not installing such snake oil. and use your time for nicer things :metal:

    Its not really useful if your just going to list a bunch of urls, some dont have self explanatory names and according to thomas, some are fluff.

    If you were to explain why for each one for example:

    https://www.bleachbit.org/download
    BLEACHBIT - opensource, free and zero ads filesystem cleaner compared to the bloated and proven security risk CCLEANER but doesnt get updated often
    • [LAST UPDATED APRIL 2020]

    rather than simply "!!!" as a descriptor...

    unless you arent sure about what you are recommending to us
    (and i think your tagger doesnt stand up to Mp3Tag at all)

    Image Resizer (right-click a pic file to automatically resize it via context menu) [good for resizing e.g 6.5 MB cover pic to 95 kB cover pic] :
    https://www.bricelam.net/ImageResizer/


    Album Art Downloader (right-click an MP3/FLAC folder (named correctly) to automatically find cover art via context menu) :
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/album-art/


    SNAP 2 HTML (scan files and create an HTML file of the directory tree structure....so simple) :
    https://www.rlvision.com/snap2html/about.php


    1by1
    (tiny audio file "directory player". Must copy required FLAC & WAV (*.BASS) files into root directory though....read how-to on webpage.....worth it for audio production PC!) :

    https://github.com/microsoft/PowerToys - Things that should be built in to windows already

    https://www.voidtools.com/support/everything/ - Spotlight like searching of indexed files

    http://www.uderzo.it/main_products/space_sniffer/ - Visual representation of your drives content

    https://www.sublimetext.com/ - Text editor

    https://winaero.com/download.php?view.1796 - If you don't like modifying the registry and services

    I also just realized that Win + Shift + S gives you a screen capture cursor. I missed Windows.

    Great Topic

    Oh man - I have so many (some were mentioned here, like BCU!)
    a lot on this thread I'll need to check out.

    Here are a few random ones I love that come to mind:

    Pangobright (Screen Dimmer) - FREE
    https://www.pangobright.com/

    FastStone Image Viewer - FREE
    https://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm
    Talkes some options tweaking (and there are many)
    but best overall image viewer I've found over many years

    Filerenamer (Basic is Free - Deluxe version available)
    http://www.sherrodcomputers.com/products_filerenamer.cfm

    Universal Extractor - Free
    https://www.legroom.net/software/uniextract#download
    (Doesn't create archives, but can extract from most anything possible,
    much more than WinRAR which has always been my go-to archive tool.
    If WinRar can't extract it, this can!)
