Best Free Windows 64-bit Software

Introduction

Best Free Windows 64-bit SoftwareHere are the top freeware picks for 64-bit Windows in their various categories. This list will continue to grow as we add new categories and new products. Go to the page index for the category you are interested in or read more about 64-bit Windows by following the links in the related articles. Normally the products will have a review in the corresponding freeware categories so I will provide an excerpt from that review. Other comments will usually relate to 64-bit compatibility and operation.

The primary goal of this article is to find the best native 64-bit applications ( ) in each category. Where there is no 64-bit application in a category there will usually be a link to a review of 32-bit applications that includes some which are compatible with 64-bit Windows ( ). These 32-bit applications will usually run slower (due to emulation of the 32-bit environment) but are either the best in their class or have features that will be particularly useful to many 64-bit Windows users.

Although we do mention Windows XP Pro 64, all testing has been under 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, 7 or 8.
