Don't forget the Total Commander - you may, if you wish, to replace the whole progman.exe with total commander as a shell. 😉

WinBar gives taskbar-like bar to the bottom of the screen to switch between applications.

awesome thanks
i also have Calmira but i tend not to install it as it seems to corrupt a lot of windows components and dll files

Yeah, calmira is so buggy that i have given up on it completely.

I usually have Borland C++ 4.5 installed. Sometimes Visual C++ 1.52 and Borland Pascal 7 as well. Just in case I ever feel like finally finishing that Programming Windows 3.1 book!

Other stuff:

  • Internet Explorer 5.0
  • SimFarm
  • SimEarth
  • SimCity 2000 SE

If I remember correctly, certain Sierra games like Gabriel Knight and King's Quest VI have Windows 3.1 versions.

Those have some minor enhancements like rendering the UI in higher resolutions and such.

PC#1: Pentium MMX 166 / Soyo SY-5BT / S3 Trio64V+ / Voodoo1 / OPTi 82C930 / AWE64 Gold / SC-155
PC#2: AthlonXP 1700+ / Abit KT7A / Voodoo3 / SBLive / Vortex2
PC#3: Athlon64 3000+ / Asus K8V-MX / GeForce4 / Audigy1
PC#4: i5-3550P / MSI Z77A-G43 / GTX 650Ti / X-Fi

I know Bob was a terrible flop but I've got some fun memories of it. The computer lab at my elementary school had Bob on all of the computers in the computer lab room

Easy Chefs One Million Recipes
This is a native windows 3.1 program. I remember this program came with our first home computer. It actually had a great selection of recipes.
