Ask HN: Any tips/advice for a Mac user jumping ship to Windows?
4 points by whitepoplar 2 days ago | hide | past | web | favorite | 2 comments
I've used OS X for 15+ years, but am jumping ship to Windows 10. Do any of you have tips/advice to make for an easy and productive transition? In particular, I'm interested in useful utilities, configuration settings, and ensuring that my Windows installation is free of crapware. Thanks for the help!

I've not actually used it yet because I haven't really needed to but I hear a lot of good things about Everything - https://www.voidtools.com/

Windows search still sucks and is broken so it seems like a good alternative.

AutoHotKey is very popular. There was a recent thread here on using this automation/macro tool.
