Windows 11 is right around the corner, the newest iteration of the Operating System brings a lot of key changes which can prove to be helpful and impact all kinds of consumers whether they are Office users or Gamers. Needless to say, everyone is excited and for that reason, we have compiled a list must-have apps that you should check out after you install Windows 11.
No app recommendation is complete without the VLC media player. One of the best media players in the market today has a lot of features on offer and is completely free of cost. The biggest strength of this application is that it supports a large variety of media formats but it also offers the option to synchronize video and audio, add subtitles and use any video as the wallpaper. Overall a must-have in any case, nothing else comes close.
Brave is relatively a new entry in the market which is dominated by chrome, opera, and firefox but it manages to perform as well and makes a compelling argument in its favor. It is based on the ‘Chromium’ browser, it is faster than chrome and uses fewer resources, which has made chrome notoriously famous. ‘Privacy’ sits at the helm of the features of this browser, so much so that it is marketed as a ‘Privacy focused’ alternative of ‘you-know-who’. Pair a browser that is light on resources, values privacy, and offers serious ad-blocking chops and you got a recipe for success which is bound to succeed.
One of the best alternatives to Microsoft Office, Libre office gives a good competition to MS Office when compared head to head. Libre gives you all the features that you need to make a document. The best part of all of this is that the Libre is completely free, so not only do you get almost every functionality of MS office in a smaller package but also you can save the document in the MS office extensions so that it can be opened and edited in MS Office later.
Sticky notes have been widely successful on Windows 10 and it looks like the success story is most likely to repeat itself in windows 11. A no-frills application does what it says and makes organizing tasks and other things easy. You can also attach pictures to your notes and sync them across different devices. Reminders can also be set with Cortana.

It makes ‘Smart magazines’ based on different topics from which you can select any topic which interests you. You can also link your Social Media accounts and make a standalone social media browsing app too.
Let’s be honest here, who does not like listening to music? Even if you are among the minority who doesn’t, light and chill vibes playlist in the background while you’re working does not hurt or a soothing playlist when you are relaxing makes the experience even better or a happy music playlist when you are on Cloud 9 elevates your mood even higher and so on. And when it comes to music there is no other app that is better than Spotify, with millions of songs and a plan for almost everyone, it consolidates itself as a top contender when it comes to music streaming. If you do not want to create a playlist from scratch there are thousands of pre-made playlists by users and Spotify also creates a curated playlist after observing the type of music you listen to. Whenever it comes to choosing the right music Spotify gets the work done.

There are different subscription plans aimed at different consumers, with the most expensive ones allowing up to 4 screens at once and Ultra HD streaming.
Windows PCs are more prone to viruses as compared to their Apple counterparts. While Windows 11 is said to be more secure it is always a good choice to install an ‘Anti-Malware’ on your PC. Malwarebytes anti-malware is one of the best software in the market, it scans your PC for anti Malware which your antivirus or Windows Defender might have missed. The free version offers a lot of protection but it is advised that you upgrade to the premium version.

The desktop app has the fewer amount of features as compared to Android or iOS but it will be enough for most users.
MS Teams has enjoyed success and Microsoft is to make it the video conferencing app on Windows 11 which will work together along with Microsoft’s new chat app which at the moment allows the users to start a new chat or make video calls without having to fully launch the app. The chat app is expected to support chatting even with those users who do not have Teams.
A password manager eliminates the need to remember the passwords you have set over the years and makes signing into applications easier while keeping the hackers at bay. There are a lot of options when it comes to Password Managers but LastPass is one of the best among them. A no-nonsense app that does everything that it says and is worth every penny.
There is a hacker attack every 39 seconds in the world. In the times when Data is the new oil one should be protective of what data they share online or with applications. A VPN secures your data in public places and prying Eyes and protects your identity online. Services like ExpressVPN and NordVPN are both great and going with either of them would be a good choice.
Searching for applications you want to download can be quite a tedious task. Here’s when Ninite comes into play. It lets the user select all the applications they want to install and then install them. It makes the process of setting up your PC easy and saves a lot of time.
