Windows system utilities to maximize productivity
Microsoft PowerToys - This is one surprisingly useful for me, especially the Quick Accent function, which allows to add letters from other languages, but sub&superscript numbers. Also some other things such as the plus-minus ± sign. It also has a Mac style search bar option, called PowerToys Run, which allows you to quickly search through the apps, and documents and allows other things too.

Zotero is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, annotate, cite, and share your research sources.
Zotero - Zotero, I believe, should have a decent audience, but I still write a recommendation here. Zotero allows you to quickly add sources, studies etc. to cite. As it says on their webpage: “Zotero is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organize, annotate, cite, and share research.” I do believe that it is extremely accurate, as I've had no problems so far. It is incredibly easy to use [but as with anything that is auto-generated, you should still check whether it picks the correct source to cite]. Still, it is great for what it does.

Appwrite - The open-source backend cloud platform. Add Auth, Databases, Functions, and Storage to your product and build any application at any scale while using your preferred coding languages and tools.
Community plugins list, theme list, and releases of Obsidian.
Obsidian - It is quite a great piece of software to create Markdown format notes, because it allows you to create “connections” which you could view as a graph or rather “brain” in which connections are brought out between different ideas/notes. Link here: https://obsidian.md/
