Technology has brought ease of life that everybody has welcomed with two hands. Great developments have been seen in software and hardware depending on the different consumer needs. Whether you want to keep your records, do artwork, communicate, manage temperature controls in your hotel cold room, all this demands the use of computer software to suit the specific need.
Different professions will use various software to do their work, apart from that, everybody has something they want to do on their computers to fulfill some need of their lives. Some software and applications will be put to more use than others and I want us to look at some of the most commonly used, some of the most helpful
The Anti-virus software
Our computers need to be kept safe from the many viruses that can easily harm your computer. Some attack our document files, programs and some may just as well kill the functions of our computers. A good antivirus is always handy, especially if it can run in the background, it will help protect our computers all the time even without our knowledge. It informs us immediately it detects a virus threat.
A web browser software
Who doesn’t need the Internet? With Facebook, Twitter and Google being a place where most people click to, the Internet is one need for most people. While others need to research and others are sending mail, some are watching YouTube videos and so on. The Internet, therefore, makes the browser very necessary
The Microsoft office
Who doesn’t need the Microsoft Office applications like Excell, word, Access, Powerpoint and Outlook? What can we do without these? They are very competent apps that help us with basic work on our computers. Whether working on a written document, dealing with figures, making a document for publishing, all these demands such apps and the office application does it well.
A media player
Music, videos, tutorials are part of the life of most computer users. The media player helps us access the kind of media files we need to deal with our work. Sometimes we need the music to relax or watch a video for fun. Additionally, we can use the converter for audio to download music from the Internet in a format that is compatible with our media players. It’s, therefore, part of the basic software needed.
The OS (operating system)
This is the mother of all of them, it’s not software but truth be told, how do we access the rest without the operating system? The OS makes it possible for the others to function. We can call it the foundation on which the other applications are built upon. It is that beautiful screen that greets you when you open your computer.
All said and done, the world of technology is developing as much as the needs of us humans increase. This means more software will come up to fit the upcoming need but before then, we can agree that these are basic and helpful.
