In Pictures: 20 free PC apps to ease daily tasks

Some of the best things in a PC lover's life are indeed free, but they're not always obvious.

BoxCryptor Dumping your data on third-party servers—as you do with any cloud storage provider—carries inherent security risks. Encrypting your data before you deliver it to SkyDrive or Dropbox helps ensure that prying eyes will never see the true contents of your stash.

The free and open-source TrueCrypt is our go-to encryption service, but having to muss with entire volumes to access a single file makes it cumbersome for the cloud. BoxCryptor lets you encrypt and extract single files, a much less frustrating process. Check out PCWorld's BoxCryptor review and guide to encrypting your cloud storage for more info.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
