Preface
This thread can be considered a users extension of the Useful Windows 10 Downloads Article.

My philosophy on what is considered a useful download is less strict than the article this thread extends upon, and if you have any suggestions, please add the software name and link and description with your reply and I'll gladly add it to the list.

Note: Any software added here is in use / or has been tested thoroughly and there are positive personal experiences with them, this list is not limited to opensource or freeware.
