Be sure to install these 10 Windows apps on your new computer
Clover works by adding tabs to Windows Explorer. Whenever you click on My Computer (Windows Key + E), it will open a new tab instead of a new window, just like a browser. This relieves you from opening multiple Windows Explorer at once. And switching between different tabs is also very easy. Once you start using Clover, you will wonder why Windows did not provide this feature by default. If you use Windows 10, open the new Windows Explorer as per Clover user. Then click View > Options > View tab > uncheck Launch folder Windows in separate process > then click OK. This ensures that this app runs smoothly on Windows 10 without any issues.
If you're tired of Windows taking too long to search for something, give Everything a try. This is a very lightweight file search app that indexes all your files in just a minute.

If you are very conscious about the name of your files then this is a very useful app. It doesn't take up too much space which is a good thing.
