  2. Neat Download Manager is an impressive downloader that also supports media grabbing What's a good free alternative for IDM? The answer varies, depending on what you need a download manager for.

Maybe it's required for the program to function, or it fixes an issue, or lets the application run in full-screen mode. The usual method to do this, is to right-click on the executable and select the run as administrator option. You could create shortcuts for these programs, but it will quickly clutter your desktop.

  4. DuckStation is an excellent PlayStation 1 emulator for Windows, Linux, macOS and Android The PlayStation 1, Nintendo SNES, GBA, and DS are my favorite consoles of all-time because they have tons of RPGs. I remember playing WWF/WCW games, and many JRPGs on my old Windows 98 computer using ePSXe back in the 2000s. Emulation has come a long way since then; there have been many advancements, improvements and of course new emulators. DuckStation is a PSX emulator and a brilliant one at that. It comes with a QT-based GUI version and a no-GUI version.

  20. Save a list of your folder's contents, and use it to search for files with InDeep File List Maker If you're archiving data to an external drive, or if you're just a data hoarder, it may be wise to save a record of the contents.
