Of course, you can’t kill it with one shot. There are still many good applications. First, I will introduce 3 models to you, and then I will talk about why it is so hard to describe. .
>/ Ear Trumpet
This tool has been used for several years and must be installed after every system reinstallation. This time it also won the “Open Platform Category” award.
When I say this, you might think it’s powerful and cool. .
But it’s actually quite simple.It allows you to adjust the volume of each application individually.
I believe everyone was shocked by the sudden loud volume when watching the video.
Why is there such a big difference between the volume of the same system and different applications? .
However, with Ear Trumpet, we don’t have to find a place to adjust the volume in each application, we can adjust the volume of each application directly in the lower right corner of the desktop to keep it at the appropriate level.
In addition, it also has a memory function, which can keep the previous settings after the computer is restarted.
In this way, when we study popular science films in the middle of the night, we will not be frightened by a sentence of Macau casino because we forget to adjust the volume.
In addition to the adjustment function, Ear Trumpet also supports switching sound output.
If you have multiple speakers and headphones, just right-click on Ear Trumpet and you can quickly choose which port the sound comes from.
even,You can also set specific audio to play from a specific speaker.
For example, if I like listening to songs when playing games, I will let the game sound come out from the computer speakers, and the music sound comes out of the speakers dedicated to listening to songs.

Many people take screenshots on their computers, probably using WeChat.
But if you have more complex screenshot needs, you can consider ShareX.
It is an open source tool and has been updated since 2007, so the features are:So many functions. .
The most common ones are remarked and circled in the screenshots, and I won’t mention them.
It can also be usedmagnifying glass focus, can be marked withGaussian blur, you can addSerial numbers, speech bubbles, stickers, pointers, arrows that turnand many more.
With these functions, you can do what you want to focus on screenshots, make presentations, and protect privacy.
Of course, you don’t have to code to protect privacy, you can also use Share X’sSmart removal.
It can adjust the color at any time, allowing you to draw a rectangle with the same color as the background, so hiding information in the screenshot is definitely much better than mosaic.
In addition, ShareX also allows you to customize the workflow.
You can set an action to be triggered automatically after taking a screenshot, such asAuto watermark, copy to clipboard, save to local, OCR and more(However, OCR is very inaccurate).
For example, if you don’t want to be stolen by others after taking a screenshot, you can set a “bad review” watermark.
In this way, after we take a screenshot, the picture will automatically add a watermark, and no further operations are required later.
For those who want to set it up, please refer to the following path: Task Settings-Image-Effect-Image Effect Configuration.
In addition to screenshots, Share X can even record videos and Gifs, basically covering all your needs on the shared screen.
Not one by one demos, friends who like it can search for ShareX in the Microsoft Store.
>/ Files App
Files is a file management app. Although it won the award this time, the reviews have been mixed, and the score in the Microsoft Store has not yet reached 4 points. .
The reason for this is that it has obvious advantages and disadvantages.
The advantage is that the moment you open Files, you can clearly feel that it is better thanWindows10 The self-contained one looks much better, it is said to be adoptedMicrosoftDesigned by Fluent Design.
In addition, if you feel that the color scheme is single, it comes with a variety of themes in its settings for you to choose.
In addition, whether it is entering a folder or clicking the right-click menu, its interactive animation is also very smooth.
In addition to the visual enjoyment, it is also ahead of the file manager that comes with Windows in terms of functionality.
For example “tags”, which is similar to the labeling system on macOS and can be used to color files.
People who haven’t used the tag system may not be able to figure out how useful this thing is.
Let me introduce to you how to use it.
If you have a bunch of work files to look at, you can mark themred, if you have read it, you can mark it asgreen.
In this way, we only need to click red and green in the directory tree to quickly find thoseFinish,undonework.
Of course, you can also follow the “Urgent-Not Urgent”, “Work-Private” to label the settings.
In addition to tabs, Files also has a two-panel mode.
You can open a D drive and a C drive at the same time in one tab. In this way, whether it is comparing files or moving files, it will be convenient and intuitive.
Let’s talk about its shortcomings.
The first is that there are many bugs, what copy and paste is invalid, and the new folder name is incomplete, and the probability of occurrence is quite high.
In addition, many people have reported that there will be a loading delay of about 1 second when the Files folder is opened, and the experience is also calculated, and there is indeed a delay of about 0.925 seconds.
If you have heavy file management needs, it may not be acceptable.
Finally, don’t easily set Files as the default file manager, otherwise it will be difficult to restore to the default after you uninstall… (with solution: https://reurl.cc/1ZqbKW )

These are the three best apps to introduce to you.
Maybe many people are a little puzzled after reading it. Isn’t it just one for volume adjustment, one for screenshots, and one for file management, can you choose the best one?
Not to mention the basics of functions, isn’t Ear Trumpet just moved the volume synthesizer to the front, the files are estimated to have more bugs than functions. .
Indeed, that’s why I can’t say enough in the beginning. .
Although these application design concepts are okay, there is a big gap compared to the various Windows artifacts we recommended before, and the functions are too basic…
I think it’s because netizens don’t have much to choose from. After all, not many developers are willing to work on the UWP version of the Windows Store.
The first is that there are too few users, and Windows Phone is cold.
Secondly, if you want to put on the Microsoft Store, App development will be subject to many restrictions, resources cannot be called, and permissions cannot be obtained. For the same App, the one in the Microsoft Store will have many fewer functions than the original one. .
If I were a developer, I wouldn’t want to do thankless things.
UWP version and Windows WeChat comparison ▼
However, Microsoft estimates that these problems have also been found.
It has been making the Microsoft Store open since Windows 11 launched.
For example, the application has no framework and packaging technology requirements. Except for UWP, any Win32, Java, and Progressive Web Apps will do.
In addition, developers can also introduce their own business systems, earn money by themselves, and Microsoft does not charge fees.
Even other third-party app stores can join the Microsoft Store, such as the Epic Games Store.
And the best app election event this time may also want to guide the enthusiasm of developers and users.
I think it is very good, attracting developers to come and make satisfactory software.
In this way, our users can also save snacks, do not need to search everywhere to find software, and are not afraid of downloading viruses, do you think so?
