Not just this, but I notice a lot of video tutorials on the web where the author thinks if he clicks stuff and it works, what more could be asked for?  Trouble is all I see are little colored buttons or lines that hot track.  He clicks.  Something opens, then he clicks something else.  What any of it is cannot be discerned.  These video authors must have 27" monitors I'm thinking.  :)

Woody's list..........(see note at the bottom)

Top free desktop file management tool: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder............. no link?

Top free desktop productivity tool: link?   (Paint Net)             (included in WSCC)             (included in WSCC)

There's a blurb for each image with Woody's opinion, experience, etc.
If you're interested in any particular item I can copy/paste the blurb in a reply.
LOTS, and I mean LOTS of caveats about mailware in the setup files.

he's a bit hypocritical -
he completely refuses to use one piece of software because it uses Open Candy, yet warns abut the alternative option trying to get you to download some piece of crap instead of the app itself. And he recommends a few that do try to install other apps (he warns about it) - but this is exactly what Open Candy can be/is used for (so whether they use Open Candy to do it or not is irrelevant).
It's almost like he doesnt know what Open Candy is :-\

Over 60 years ago I learned a very valuable lesson.....
summed up nicely............ CYA

"Let me say this about that..........."
I have found through experience that deleting dupes is a hazardous sport.
To reduce the risk of deleting the wrong files I use IYF, Index your Files, which lists dupes one above the other. I start the app and let it grind away indexing everything and then scroll through the list.
The indexer shows where the files are and you can delete, move, etc., right from there.
I haven't removed the wrong file since I found iyf.
Everything works the same way I think but I haven't used that in a long time. Everything is preferred in some circles to iyf, but I've iyf for years.
