Many companies have postponed their work in these two days, and for some special industries, they can also work from home. The problem came, some friends usually in the unit is used by Mac, back home to use back windows, there are always a lot of wrong place. Today small editor recommended to give you a few small software, so that you can also simulate the function of Mac under Windows 10, come to see it together!
1. “QuickLook” replaces “one-fingerZen”

Mac’s “one-finger Zen” lots like it, and it’s really convenient to check files. While a similar effect can be achieved with a preview box under Win10, file support is far less abundant than the “one-finger zen”. QuickLook is a file preview gadget that enables the ability to preview file content with the space bar. Words, pictures, music, videos… what Mac can do, it’s almost always capable, and the way it’s used is roughly the same.
2. “Cloud clipboard” instead of “Universal clipboard”
Your Mac has a universal clipping board that pastes copied content from one device to another. In fact, there is a similar feature under Win10, called the “cloud cutting board”. This feature is located under Settings, System, Cut Board, just check Cross Device Sync and then change the sync type to Automatic Sync Copy Text. Once set up, we’ll experience the exciting experience of copying on a Device A (Ctrl-C) and pasting (Ctrl-V) on a B device, and Win10’s feature is not limited to text, but the images can be synchronized. And the whole process is almost no delay, A machine click copy, B machine can be paste immediately. The only regret is that this feature does not support the phone for the time being. If there is a real need for this, you have to use some third-party tools, such as “quick paste”.

3. “Timeline” instead of “relay”
Mac’s ecosystem has been praised, for example, when you wrote half of your presentation on the MacBook Air and can continue editing on your iPad. Emails written on the iPhone can be returned to your Mac for further processing. In fact, there is a similar feature under Win10, known as “TimeLine Time-Line”. Once you’ve signed in to the same Microsoft account on a different device, you can see the files or web pages that you’ve just edited on other devices through TaskBar. Task tags support clicking so that if you don’t do it on your A device, you can continue to work on the B device. It’s important to note, however, that the relay of the document needs to be saved to the cloud, and the others don’t make much difference from Macs.

4. “Feem V4” replaces “AirDrop”

In MacOS, pictures, videos, files can be sent to an iPhone or iPAD with the click of AirDrop, and while OneDrive can do some of these similar features, the actual experience is still far from AirDrop. Feem V4 is a multi-platform file sync software that supports Win10, Mac, Android, Linux, and iPhone. It has several advantages, one is to connect fully automatic, as long as their devices in the same local area network will automatically connect, do not need users to do anything. At the same time, Feem V4 file transfer does not need to upload public network, which means that even a few gigabytes of high-definition video, can be high-speed transmission between devices. In addition, Feem V4 also supports text, documents, videos, pictures and other types, so that daily transit does not need to switch back and forth between software. But the weakness of the Feem V4 is that it has to rely on a local area network operation (an environment without a router can also be connected to a wireless hotspot), which is the biggest difference between it and AirDrop. But for small partners working from home, it doesn’t matter.
The Feem V4 is fast in transit and is ideal for transferring oversized files across multiple devices
5. “Listary” replaces “Spotlight”

Spotlight is the Mac’s next native search feature, and is more powerful than Win10’s built-in search. Listary is an alternative software I found under Windows, the operation method is similar to Spotlight, also through the shortcut keys (even press two Ctrl keys) exhaled out of the search bar, and then enter keywords to search. Listary’s support for Chinese is good, and in addition to allowing fragment searches, discontinuous Chinese characters can also successfully search out files. Listary also supports window management, double-clicking in any software’s Open Files dialog box to call up the last used files and the folders you just opened. You can even search the web in the search bar, enter “bd windows10” return, you can call out Baidu engine search “Windows 10”.
Listary is very good for Chinese support
6. “OneDrive” replaces “iCloud”
iCloud is the essence of Mac, so much of the user-friendly experience of Mac is based on iCloud. A similar service in Win10 is OneDrive. In principle, OneDrive is similar to iCloud and is a localized cloud disk service. In particular, the seamless integration with Microsoft’s productivity tool Office has greatly enhanced the practical value of OneDriver. But Compared to iCloud’s full-ecological backup, OneDrive can only implement a portion of a file-level backup, a system-level backup like iCloud and an application backup that it can’t do, which is the main reason OneDrive has been less famous than iCloud. But even so, being able to cover most of the mainstream platforms such as PC, Web, Android, Mac and so on is enough to make it stand out, and forget that it has 5GB of free space available, and the cost of space is much lower than iCloud.
OneDrive can replace iCloud to some extent
7. “MultiColorWin” replaces “File Tag TAG”

Mac file labels have always been a favorite of many people, and by setting different tags for files or folders, such as “emergency,” “pending,” and “pending,” you can do a good job of managing other dimensions on the logic of existing folders. Under Win10, there’s a gadget called MultiColorWin that can be used like Mac File TAG. It is also used to right-click to add different state colors to a file or folder. In addition to color labels, MultiColorWin can also add status tags such as “Finished” and “Unfinished” for similar practicality to Macs.

8. “fliqlo” instead of “time screensaver”

Mac’s time screensaver is a favorite of many people, and it’s also a place to highlight macs. Fliqlo is a screensaver under Windows that is basically designed to follow the Mac’s time screensaver. Like the Mac, Fliqlo also supports clock size adjustment and 12/24-hour format switching.

Write at the end
Overall, Mac and Win10 are very mature operating systems, and while there are differences in many places, they are sufficient as productivity tools. The above few small software is the author has been using, for improving Win10’s daily work efficiency can also play a great help, well, this is the current issue to share with you a few small software, interested friends may wish to try it!
