  • ExplorerPatcher

    This project aims to enhance the working environment on Windows

    There's also this one I found yesterday after realizing windows 11 won't let you move the taskbar position. It's called explorer patcher which lets you change the taskbar and file explorer, you can have the full options when right clicking things again, have older windows style stuff, remove rounded corners, move the windows start menu icon back to the left side, etc. Lots of different things.

  • Shell

    Powerful context menu manager for Windows File Explorer (by moudey)

  • EverythingToolbar

    Everything integration for the Windows taskbar.

    Everything with EverythingToolbar - for finding folders really quickly ueli - a keystroke launcher ShareX - much better alternative to the snipping tool imo Microsoft PowerToys - a bunch of cool features from Microsoft that aren't implemented in windows KDE Connect - a way to connect your smartphone and computer and not use Microsoft's Link to Windows tool (I've had some times where the windows versions of this app wouldn't recognize anything, your experience may vary)

  • ShareX

    ShareX is a free and open source program that lets you capture or record any area of your screen and share it with a single press of a key. It also allows uploading images, text or other types of files to many supported destinations you can choose from.

  • T-Clock

    Highly configurable Windows taskbar clock

    I have been using T-Clock for years, which can be configured to show the seconds right in the taskbar. Not sure if it works on Windows 11, but, it probably does (it works on Windows 10).

  • SoundSwitch

    C# application to switch default playing device. Download: https://soundswitch.aaflalo.me/

    SoundSwitch control audio out/inputs with profiles set to hotkeys. I have pageup= speakers and an empty mic input, pagedown= headset and mic. The tray icon shows the current profile's device icon so I changed them in windows sound->playback->properties to show it like this.

  • ModernFlyouts

    A modern Fluent Design replacement for the old Metro themed flyouts present in Windows.
