Windows4all

* File Explorer
* Internet Explorer
* Video Player
* Rich text editor
* RSS reader
* Notepad
* Paint
* Calculator

Update: Thank you Akmal Wardak for your point. After you commented here, we have figured out that Windows4all is not a Microsoft product and we have mistakenly Introduced it like this. We apologize to our community.
