In Pictures: 20 free PC apps to ease daily tasks

Some of the best things in a PC lover's life are indeed free, but they're not always obvious.

QTTabBar The default Windows Explorer file tool works great! Unless you're shuffling several folders around, that is, since Windows Explorer forces you to open each new destination in a different window. If you're sick of the clutter, give QTTabBar a whirl. This program brings browser-esque tabs (along with an incredibly useful preview pane) to the OS, letting you open several folders in a single window.

The extra menu can feel a bit cramped alongside Windows 8's Ribbon interface, but QTTabBar's functionality is just so great that it's worth the acclimation. Older versions of Windows look less squished, though you may need to hop through some hoops to activate the program.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
