Fences is the first app which comes in my mind when I hear the word organised. Fences is a very good app to keep your desktop organised. You can hide icons when you don’t need them. You create sizable shaded areas and add icons to them. <Link>

Internet Download Manager

Internet Download Manager or IDM is the best free download manager with speed limiter and resume capability. It automatically integrates with all the popular browsers. You can also create different folders for different types of file formats and they will be automatically downloaded to the desired folder. <Link>


Winamp is a cool music/video player which I have used on all of the PCs. There are many equalizers available so you can choose the one you like. You can easily organize songs by making different playlists. It has an integrated browser so you can easily search and download songs within the music player. <Link>


Most of the time when you try do delete a file, you get an error that the file is in use. Unlocker can be used to delete such files. All you have to do is right-click on a file and click on unlock.  <Link>


Winrar is a good file compressing software which can compress files very quickly. Simply click on a file to be compressed and click on add to archive. Give the archive a name, select a format between zip/rar and click on Ok. <Link>

This is not all, there are many essential software’s like Antivirus, messengers and other softwares which can be included in the list of must have software’s. We will keep you updated with the latest software’s, don’t forget to subscribe to CallingAllGeeks, to keep getting latest updates.

    I think VLC media player supports more file formats than Winamp so having VLC medial player in your system will be a better choice and I heard about fences for the first time ,I will surely give it a try.
