One of our favorite online resources is https://ninite.com/
Why do we like it so much? Well, if you want to install dozens of safe, free productivity tools and other kinds of software without lifting a finger more than a few times, then this is the website to go to.
All you have to do is:
- Go to the website https://ninite.com/
- Tick the boxes next to the programs you want to install
- Click ‘Get your Ninite’ – download and run it
The ‘Ninite’ will automatically download and install the programs you selected. But not only that, it is pre-programmed to answer all those questions about where to install it, and whether to install the advertising that sometimes comes with free software. The answer is no!
The other cool thing is that if you keep the ‘Ninite’ file you downloaded, you can double click on it again later – even months later – and it will check for updates to the programs you have installed and update them if that’s necessary – skip them if not.
What an excellent resource. It is even useful just to visit the Ninite website to see what programs are out there. I myself found GIMP which is like Adobe Photoshop, but free and easier to learn and use (in my opinion)
Check it out if you’re interested – it has certainly made Demidov Innovations lives much easier. If you want a good way to manage your software programs and keep them up to date yourself, it will be hard to find a more efficient way than this.
