Top 10 Free Windows 10 Apps 

1. Photoshop Express

It is short of a scale down version of the desktop Photoshop. If you want to try or use photoshop then you can use it. Come on over let's have a look.
Starting is very easy, you can either pick an image from your computer library or can take a snapshot. Either way, once you are taking images then you find some tool on the left side to make your photo look professional.

The very first tool here is called Looks, which will provide you with a wide range of filters to choose from, just choose the look you want, and play with a slider which will give you the ability to control your favorite filter even more and bring the image to a point where it pleases you.
Now let's have a look at the second feature and it is a crop tool. On the Photoshop express app, it will provide even more flexibility with your crops, that can bring the ability to crop your images with more ways within minimal efforts.

Now let's talk about the next tool, it's called the correction, as you imagined it deals with your images color correction, it can increase your images quality in many ways to make it look even more professional, for example, you can adjust images light which includes Exposure, Contrast, Highlights, Shadows, Whites, Blacks and so on. As well as light is just a single category on the correction tab, there are several others as well, which deals with your images color, effect, details, tones and so on.


Now we have several other tools as well which are 'Spot heal', which helps to remove blemishes in other words skin imperfections then we have 'Fix red eye', which can remove the red eyes effects on the photos within just a click.

And finally, we have 'borders', which give a border in your photos.
As far as I can see it has almost all the basic features of the desktop Photoshop. And the main point of getting this amazing little app from apps store is simply because it's a heck of a lot easier, more user-friendly, and top of them all it's completely free.

2. VLC 

VLC has been available as a desktop app for a long time. Since you are a windows user I'm pretty sure you have heard the name before, even windows have its own player named windows media player and Movies and TV player app.

You might experience that It can't handle all the media formats out there, In the other hand VLC earned its reputation of being able to play any media you threw in, be it video or audio, regardless of any format even supports subtitles. Since VLC has made its way to Microsoft store it's really worth to have the app so you can enjoy your moves and videos in a modern and a more polished way.

3. Ear Trumpet

Ear Trumpet is another great app which allows you to control or change the volume of individual programs running on your windows 10.
Here how it works?

Now you can control any individual program volume here. If it ruining live on your computer you will see the individual volume control for the particular program here on the Ear Trumpet, also you can control your main system volume on the top like you used to be. If you want an easier way to access I can even recommend you to switch it with your default volume controller on your taskbar. 
So that you can access it directly from your taskbar without even going to the hidden icons, it feels just like your default system volume controller, and it will start automatically when you start your computer, So you don't have to launch the app every time windows starts.

Now you will see the select theme box, from here you can use your own wallpaper by importing files or let's just go with the default Mojave Desert theme like Apple MacOS. Now click on ok, and it will run the app in background minimized to your system tray.
