Computer specialists who troubleshoot the computers of others often have to check which applications are installed and which are absent from a user’s computer. One could access the built-in programs list within the Windows Control Panel and view the installed programs on somebody’s computer. But that list, while very helpful, only shows the installed applications. In other words, you do not know which applications of a certain type could be installed.
As a computer troubleshooter, you should know which type of applications can be installed on a PC that can perform new functions. Here to help you judge that and install new Windows apps is a portable tool called Soft2Base.
