Items you will need

  • Computer

  • Internet connection

  • Available space

You can download free software and games from the Internet. All you need is a computer, Internet connection, a little hard drive space and maybe some other things that you probably already have like a keyboard and mouse to actually use these applications. There are quite a few obtainable free games and other software online. You can literally find almost any type of program that you desire for free, just waiting for you to download it.

Decide what type of free software or games that you would like. You can actually be besieged with all of the existing free programs online, so it is a good idea to narrow down your list. Figure out what type of free software or games that you want. You could even make a list or merely keep this in mind as you are doing your searches.

Go to one of the website links under Resources below to find free software and games. These are popular websites that offer numerous choices.

Check all of your options available. Go to a few of the sites to see what they are offering. Each site could have different available titles. You will find the software and games separated into categories. Read all the details concerning any free software or games you want to download.

Verify and download your free programs. After you are certain that the software is free (or a trial version) and you have confirmed that you have enough room and any other system requirements needed, download the application. If you want, you can save a copy of it or simply “run” it when asked.

Relax and have fun. Once you have downloaded and installed your free programs, play it. There is not much better than playing (or using) a great software that is really free!
