What is the best software for producing short but effective PDF guides?
You can use the free and open source LibreOffice citation target s title Free Office Suite index 1 unique_id qabQg or OpenOffice citation target s title s index 2 unique_id hlWJx suites to create PDFs. The file menus have Export to PDF italic for each product. Both of these are fully functional replacements for Microsoft Office. Foxit has what they claim to be the best PDF editor PhantomPDF citation target s title PDF EditorPDF Editor DownloadPDF Text Editor | Foxit Software index 3 unique_id oKMCq Alternatively you can print from any program using Print to PDF italic drivers. I use the Foxit Reader PDF Printer. Windows 1 has such a driver built in. There are very many alternatives. Thanks for asking. Edit Grammar
Is there a way to make Windows 10 interface graphics smoother like macOS?
Now that a tough task to aplish the major reasons for that are as follows Macs run on a specific set of hardware their trackpads andponents are specific to them so their drivers are pretty unique to a specific set of hardware so one driver works for all Macs. But Windows well it runs on a variety of devices everyone use differentponents some use Intel Wireless cards others use Atheros or Broa; some use Synaptics trackpad others use Elan trackpads. Due to this reason it almost impossible to develop a single driver for everything. The basic nature of Windows filesystem is rather flawed and outdated. One of the major reason why Windows slows down with time is that the NTFS file-system is prone to fragmentation. Not to forget it is also prone to corruption. Sadly even after so many years Microsoft hasn replaced it. So as long as Microsoft doesn replace NTFS with a modern hierarchical file-system the performance issues will prevail. Truth be told Microsoft would have replaced it long ago with HFS+ but Steve Balmer (yeah the very same guy who gave the bright idea of Zune) refused to add open-sourceponents to Windows so the idea of putting HFS+ into Windows was ditched. Windows 1 UI is just overcrowded it does things that shouldn be done together. Flashing live tiles Cortana jumping into action whenever you want to search a simple thing such stuffs adversely impact the overall smoothness of the system. Unless Microsoft separate and disable few of their useless and overtly flashy stuff Windows 1 can never be anywhere as smooth as Mac. Drivers drivers and too many drivers for every damn thing. You want a printer to work on Mac well all you need to do is to install themon CUPS driver from the manufacturer one CUPS driver works for all printers of one manufacturer like CUPS driver for HP works for all HP printers but on Windows each model of printer requires a different driver for example HP Laserjet 12 needs one driver HP Laserjet M1136 needs other driver. The reason behind this was Steve Balmer opposed the idea of using open-source CUPS project on Windows. Same is for data-cards you can just add data-cards by going to network settings like you do on Mac or Linux each time you use a data-card you need a special driver software ZTE data cards needs one software Huawei one needs another. When you bloat an OS with so many drivers no wonder the smoothness takes a hit. The damned ribbon UI. Of course I know some people like it but one can deny that the ribbon UI disrupts the smooth flow of UI elements the way it changes from one tab to other is far from smooth and disrupts the work flow. The problem with Microsoft is that theyre hell bent in pushing the ribbon UI everywhere I understand it acceptable on Microsoft Office but a ribbon UI in File Explorer Movie Maker etc is just stupid. If that not enough this epidemic of Windows has caught on to third party Windows app developers too as of now apps like Nitro PDF Syncplify Notepad! Foxit PhantomPDF have switched to the damned ribbon UI too.
What free software should everyone have?
Been waiting for someone to ask this. D hee hee hee. Here goes. All the following software is for Windows I didn't like pirating software and given that it is all too rampant and easy in India I felt it was all the more . Audio editor - . Security solution I use Avast! Free for viruses and Spybot Search and Destroy for adware (cheesy sounding name but it's an award winning excellent piece of coding).. Burning CDs - Nero BurnLite. Free and basic two things not found on Nero's other . Media player- GOM Player + Shark Codec . Office work - LibreOffice. It's a lot like MS Office but not as polished and though they claim support for saving in the new XML (.docx .xlsx .pptx extension files) format it usually only reads them - saving results in a corrupted file. Use OpenDocument format or the older MS Office formats when saving (.doc .xls .ppt) they work . Archiving - 7-zip. The 7z method is more efficient than WinRAR and also in the right-click con menu you get a separate 7-Zip option that saves you the clutter and lag WinRAR . BatteryCare - You should read up all the material they have on their site it's really important information regarding how to use your battery. The Windows program helps to identify when the battery should be calibrated (read up on their site about it)n8. Foxit Reader - Awesome replacement for the bulky Adobe Reader that I see everywhere. Also creates a virtual printer on your PC - you can hit Print in any document select it and you'll get a dialog box asking where to save the PDF of that . EAC (Exact Audio Copy) - world class CD ripping . Budget Tracker - a tiny utility I use to keep track of my . Virtual CloneDrive - creates a virtual CD drive that you can use to mount image files. Daemon Tools is also an . O&O Defrag Free - O&O makes some of the best defragmenting software. This is the free version. Quite efficient. That's it for now. I'll edit and add more programs if Ie across . FileHippo is an awesome website for downloading free software andmon AMD drivers.
