Replace Photoshop with GIMP

GIMP is a free open source image editing tool.  It has all the features I need from Adobe Photoshop and I’ve found it to be more intuitive to use.  For quick edits such as cropping screenshots + circle/arrow/look-at-this, I use Paint.NET.  For everything else, I use GIMP.  You can download the Windows installer from SourceForge here:  gimp-win.sourceforge.net

Replace Notepad with Notepad2

Notepad2 launches instantly, just like Notepad but it has tabbing and line wrap…it even has code syntax highlighting for all the major languages and scripts.  Download the Setup for version 4.2.25 (or higher) and it will replace all calls to Notepad with Notepad2 (e.g. typing “notepad” in Run launches Notepad2).
