Groupy for "tabbing" various applications together.

Aquasnap, way better than Windows's built in window snapping.

WinMerge - Doing file comparisons.

Boxcryptor - Encryption software to secure cloud files

TeraCopy - File copying utility

ClickMonitorDDC which allows you to scroll on the tray icon to adjust monitor brightness for any connected display if not analog.

Choco, windows packet manager.

Quicklook, Mac like finder in windows.

Vs Code. Obvious.

Indeed, but $199 a little steep when I am merely doing it in off time to get some new skills. Do they not have community edition, or cheaper offering?
Well, I get it because of the education license if you use it with a university e-mail.
Check individual license, not organization, it's $90/year.

If you use it for an open source project, you can also get a free license, so just pick a nice Golang project to work on.
