    Firefox
    Notepad++
    7zip
    Double commander

    I like open source software. Used GNU/Linux(archlinux) for a while but i have had to switch to the Windows because of Solidworks.

    I'm still trotting out old FF57 so will finally update. About time a black theme comes in for every app. Maybe except command prompt :D

    Yes, power shell is blue

    Hello,

    why not use : h*ttp://faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm ?
    it has a powerful image toolbox (F3 key when in thumbnail mode)

    Regards

    Hello MDL fierceness,
    [much respect to consider when english gets dissuasive #ESL,]
    Here have txt files containing a list (titles of system along 1 column). In couples, there are correspondence between those peers, in manner the intend task is to get one of 'baselist' .txt and remove from it the duplicates listed in its related 'templist' .txt. In the past, I recall using grep in a linux distro, but never reach task end, so I can't guarantee grep had worked. Here what I've done in a W10:
    - - busybox-w32 frippery.org/busybox
    - - CygwinPortable github.com/MachinaCore
    below is grep command
    grep -Fxf discartdistro.txt -v basedistro.txt > newbasedistro.txt
    . . . other try outs (http links)
    /remove-duplicate-entry-from-second-text-file {social.technet.ms} = ps script not my strong, but results null? no action really done after 'run'.
    /How-do-I-remove-duplicate-rows-from-two-text-files-containing-100-000+-rows {quora.com} =no Excel/SpreadSheet option atm.

    : : : Failling all the time. Please I accept help with scripts, dos, nt, portable, freeware, old, abandonware, etc programs to end this task.

    Don't know if it was mentioned but Snappy Driver Installer is a great driver downloader/installer program. Think DriverGenius but 100% freeware! :):) Just google SDI Tool.

    SichboPVR
    Free TV tuner software for Windows
    Supports Windows 10 PCs, all the way down to Windows XP. You'll need a half decent graphics card and a TV tuner device to use it.

    ANY MODERATOR!!!

    I presume I got any mods attention with this cap's - intentionally!

    I agree on that free software (are nice) and people that post them do all of this In a good manner and with best intentions, I like free software my self so no hypocrisy on this matter. BUT.....

    ...some say everything after BUT is Bulls**t, well, nah! It does mean something pretty much all of the time.

    Well, back to my shouting. The thing is when forum threads like this (the 1st post) - with some good links to nice free software - is popping up every person afterwards is posting like madmen all over the place and the whole thread that was intentionally good is now just a cluttered mess.

    Isn't there and idè to have a "submit-button" alternative, granting members access to the first post -OR- a direct sub-post under the 1st post so that we, the users, don't have to scroll into an inferno of posting hell with mixd content of comments and links to new software and allover the place ?!

    It's a pretty straight forward thing to implement: 1st forum post -> submit reply -> parent category -> comment/newsoft -> submit -> ok.

    It would have done the forum and the user mass a great relief in the search for the info you need.
