Here are the apps, tools, and utilities I've found to be most useful in making the Mac-to-Windows transition just a little easier. It's worth noting that most of these are actually Windows 7 or 8 apps that run just fine in Windows 10 — Microsoft's Windows Store still hasn't really taken off.
Boot Camp lets you run Windows 10 on your Mac. Here's how to use it
And if you have suggestions for any Windows apps that do the job better than what I'm listing here, send them to me. This is an ongoing experiment.
