ESSENTIAL SOFTWARE FOR WIN OS PCs

A guide to essential free software for university students


This page is meant to give an overview of which free software (for personal use) should be installed on a Win OS system to do everything you might need for university or school. We want to set up a system with pre-installed software which can be restored if at a later time a problem arises. There is a separate page for Software-Installation to a portable device (eg USB-Stick).

Please read the licence agreements before installing, as some software is only free for personal use and not Freeware!
