Windows Live Essentials 2011 Download

Microsoft does a few things right. One of them is the Windows Live Essentials free software package.

Windows Live Essentials is a bundle of free software and contains a nice array of quality software for Windows. Did I say it’s free?


I download this package just for Windows Live Writer – a free blogging tool that blows any paid competition out of the water. There are also other items that may be of interest to you.

  • Messenger – now even supports social networks like Facebook
  • Photo Gallery – photo management app with sharing support for Flickr, Facebook, SkyDrive, etc.
  • Movie Maker – a nice feature rich movie editing app with sharing support for Youtube, SkyDrive and Facebook
  • Windows Live Mesh – a Dropbox like file sync service
  • Mail – a stripped out Mail client like Outlook
  • Writer – one of the most powerful desktop blog editors out there
  • Family Safety – an app to monitor your kids web activities including whitelist support

Download Windows Live Essentials 2011

If you are on Windows XP, go here to get the XP version of the download.

Tip: use the custom install option and uncheck the ‘Bing Bar’. I hate browser toolbars.
