    VLC has an IOS app. I don’t know about Android

    This a very useful list, thanks for the information. Do you have an online whiteboard you like the best? I have found to be a great virtual collaboration whiteboard. Works on all browsers and you can sign up for free. Lots of useful features and templates too.

  3. Soulaesthete on May 8, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    Thank you for another great video, TechGumbo. I love Thunderbird, it’s been my default email client for 15 years.

  4. Tosh Gilhooly on May 8, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Did what you said, works BUT … I’m missing 4 inches of capture from the right hand side of my screen, HELP !!!

  5. DDC Management on May 8, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Bcoz i am glued to my desktop in the office, i use anydesk. I just turned off my desktop monitor in my office and walah! Remotely accessing it…

  6. jdog90650 on May 8, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    FCC Free Conference Call is similar to zoom but you get more time and more users per call for free

  7. hbailey111 on May 8, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Awesome video I’ve been working from home since 3/13 and all of my office needs have been provided by my company but if that situation was to change, I can reference this for everything I need. Thank you!

  8. Lionel Berton on May 8, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Loom is good for sharing problems or tutos in video with colleagues.

  9. emailausdrucker on May 8, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    Any reason you don’t like Google and the Google Suite? I love it. Transcripts PDF content to edit-ready word content, collaboration with others, small homepages can be made, team communication through the build in "hang out" app aso

  10. Darren Smith on May 8, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    You shared some useful tips, downloaded a couple of them, VLC media player, ShareX and IDrive. I have been using Microsoft Office for years (home and work), I also use Skype, has been a while.

  11. Tech World on May 8, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    WinSCP, Putty or Cygwin Terminal useful working with Linux servers on Windows. Anydesk useful for accessing desktop.

  12. Silver Solver on May 8, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    If you need to edit PDF documents, I recommend the free PDF-XChange Editor.
    Best I’ve found to open PDFs in Word with minimal problems is the Wordmate plug-in.

    For collecting research, use either OneNote or Evernote. They have different ways of organizing, so it’s personal preference which suits you. Evernote is separate, while OneNote is part of Windows 10—or previously Office 365. I’ve used OneNote for many years, it’s truly excellent.

    For moving larger files around between people, use DropBox.
    Some may find IFTTT [If This, Then That] useful for automating work flow—eg if email from John, forward to Mary & Tim.

    If you have a new Windows installation, go to to get your favorite free programs installed in one go—has worked flawlessly for me a number of times.

    Save time & hassle by using a password manager—LastPass, Roboform or Bitwarden are my recommends.

  13. Craig Willis on May 8, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Thanks mate…great advice !!

  14. Carolyn Berry on May 8, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    We use Zoom for video conferences and Restyaboard for managing our projects, tasks, teams and To-dos.

  15. Jimmy b747 on May 8, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Wow another amazing super great video info and analysis from absolutely the best channel on utube. the best part of your channel is that you give your honest opinion of your reviews. if people don’t like it make there products better. thank you and keep up the good work

  16. Leon Thomas on May 8, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    Restyaboard is missing! One of the best remote working tools allows us to assign tasks, track progress, and communicate with team members.

  17. Marcy Barron on May 8, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    What is best programs for inventory?

  18. Alexander Egiyan on May 8, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    Jamm is the best video call app

  19. Plague3D on May 8, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    MS Teams has been a real lifesaver, it provides almost every feature on the list when combined with an office suite.

  20. TOS IT Corner on May 8, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Would anyone help me… How could I do this type of screen recording YouTube tutorial ( like animation and live )

  21. TecK No on May 8, 2022 at 8:19 pm

  22. Alwarith Alkhusaibi on May 8, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    I like ShareX

  23. Dan G on May 8, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Open drive have great plan too i pay 10$ monthly for unlimited backup and storage

  24. Jacob Roberts on May 8, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    I think TechGumbo is by far the most useful channel on the web. Thank you for making these valuable videos.

  25. YOUSUF YUSUF on May 8, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Good evening how do you put software on HP laptop

  26. Cesar Cardenas on May 8, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Good video, I use Amazon Drive, is easy and fast, greetings.

  27. Julia van der Kris on May 8, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Jitsi is another cool open-source conference call software

  28. Ivan Guerra on May 8, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    ZOOM sales your data to facebook, SpyWare, don´t use it fnck SuckerBurguer everywhere planet earth. Use Jitsi meets open source instead,
    BTW, Google have asked their workers NOT to use ZOOM.

  29. TechGumbo on May 8, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    UPDATE ALERT: Just ahead of an investigation into security breaches at Zoom, their CEO Eric Yuan dumped $38 million in stock. I repeat DO NOT USE ZOOM!!!!!!!! Use one of the other video conference programs mentioned. Microsoft Teams is also very good. They’re now offering 6 months free right now.

    Hopefully this helps those of you that have never worked from home before… If you already work from home, what programs would you recommend for other people to use? Stay safe and DON’T USE ZOOM!!! Thanks for watching 🙂

  30. cdm m on May 8, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    Hi. I find your channel very useful so I am a huge fan. In our days one of the bigger problems is the too many files on the hard disks of the computers. Do you know any applications free or not, that can help us to organize all those files so it will make our work on computer and life easier. Something that will organize the chaos 🙂

  31. redf on May 8, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    edge chromium seems a huge advance on chrome and old edge. Worth trying.

  32. OblinciT on May 8, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    Amazing channel techGumbo. Your videos have made me realise most people actually may not know how to use computers. Thanks for inspiring me to create my own channel.

  33. Jeff Mouradi on May 8, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Thanks Bro

  34. Adventures of Luca on May 8, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Hi, I am new to editing and will be planing to watch your videos. Can you please check out my channel and subscribe for some support. Thanks so much!!!

  35. Bhuvaneswar 5A3 on May 8, 2022 at 8:34 pm

  36. Robert Benites on May 8, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    Another question not for this video but just need to know pls if I know what pay app can I use in a grocery store on my iPhone pls thx??

  37. Edwin Jonah on May 8, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    I honestly use TickTick and think it’s better than Todoist. Multi-platform support, good reminders, daily planning sessions, natural language support, subtasks and more… Also, the free version of Todoist lacks basic functionality like reminders, which I just find frustrating.

  38. Giri dhar on May 8, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    TechGumbo, can you please do a video on ‘NextCloud’? I’ve heard that it offers nearly unlimited storage and that it’s very secure coz we can self host our server. Please check if you can explore it. Thanks a lot! 🙂

  39. Alan Anderson on May 8, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    Work From Home helps small businesses to stay productive at low costs. We use Restyaboard to organize my tasks and projects. It’s an effective free tool for managing remote working teams to ensure productivity when WFH.

  40. Jeff Hinchman on May 8, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    In a previous video you have shown a program to analyze the data on your computer, I think visually. I have been looking and cant find it. Could your reply with the name of that software. Thank You.

  41. Person on May 8, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    I can’t recommend more using OneNote

  42. DIXIT G on May 8, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    What is the best free tool available for Disk management??

  43. Zvi Krochmalnik on May 8, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    hi TechGumbo
    , im looking for free Software that can take certain parts of different video to connect them together. For example, 5 seconds from one video and another video take a few seconds and connect them to one video including music, You can help with that?

  44. Alex B on May 8, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    next video on the best remote access like anydesk as it has been mentioned but which one is the safest?

  45. Douglas Hamilton on May 8, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    We use Teams for audio/video conferences and collaboration, also included in Microsoft 365 (formerly known as Office 365)

  46. Kashvi Goel on May 8, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    Restyaboard is an essential free software of 2020 while Work From Home.

  47. Bill Gross on May 8, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    Have you considered in place of Dropbox? Dropbox has privacy concerns. is totally encrypted. Free version gives us a more generous 5 gb storage.

  48. JVAV on May 8, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    I use discord for communication

  49. Amazing Philippines on May 8, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    Great suggestions as usual. I will definitely checkout IDrive.

  50. STB 1971 on May 8, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    A good VPN is a must for working from home.
