Windows Live Essentials 2011 are a bunch of free software from Microsoft which is very useful for many things like viewing and managing photos, email, chatting with friends and also other features like creating movies. It also has my personal favorite blogging tool Windows Live Writer.
I often see many people have limited plans when it comes to internet usage and hence might not be able to install such software. Also if you install it from Microsoft Download center, you it will get an installer which installs a small file and then starts to install the complete software from the internet. This is where a standalone offline installer will be useful.
What you get with Live Essentials?
- Software like Live Mail for managing your email. Movie Maker for making home movies.
- It also had Live Mesh which allows synchronizing folders on different computers using Windows 7 or Vista.
- Other things includes Live Writer which is an excellent blogging tool along with Live Messenger which allows chatting with your online contacts.
