Free Software For Windows

I know we all love lists of Free stuff, but this is genuinely free software for educational use on Windows PCs. Some of it is a little old, but all of it has great functionality.  These packages are in alphabetical order: 

Sound Recoding software

Blue Griffon -
html editing package

Great for making simple cartoon strips for on-screen display

Nice little drawing package

Open Source Mind Map maker.

Hot Potatoes -
Great for making quizzes of all sorts, interfaces is a little dated but great nonetheless. 

It's 3D programming. Great job MS! 

Certainly as good as Microsoft Office 2007 and better than many older editions!

Free for education, great for more advanced mathematics

MonkeyJam -
Helps you to make stopmotion animations on your PCs & drawings.

Free video editing on PCs, great for those simple projects. They don't call them Microsoft Essentials for nothing!

MuseScore –
Notation software, but if nothing else enables you to play those classic songs. (Including Frozen) 

The free alternative to Photoshop, great for children with a simpler interface. 

The classic app, still useful today!

Scratch Offline Editor -
The bedrock of the new Computing Curriculum.

Make the world in 3D. Fantastic package.

Small Basic -
Start making games!
