When you spend time in the Microsoft Store on your Windows PC, you’ll undoubtedly find an endless supply of creativity-boosting apps. But finding the best app is really what you’re after. And as Windows 10 users increasingly migrate to Windows 11, they’re finding even more compelling Windows apps — and don’t know where to turn. 

So, whether you’re looking for the best drawing or note-taking apps for Windows, or you simply want to be more creative in how you use your Windows PC, you’ve come to the right place. To help you in your search, we’ve outlined five outstanding Windows apps for creatives that will help you edit photos, boost your music skills, enhance your drawing, and give you a new take on note taking. 

Adobe Photoshop 

Adobe Photoshop is one of the premier creative Windows apps on the market. And it’s arguably one of the best ways for you to express yourself creatively. 

Adobe Photoshop features the ability to edit and touch up photos of all types including JPEGs, PNGs, TIFFs, and others. It also comes with a host of editing tools that let you create unique artwork. 

If you want to try before you buy, you can even check out Adobe’s “lite” version Photoshop Elements, which comes with many of the photo-editing features you’d expect in Photoshop without some of the more advanced tools. 

Adobe Photoshop is available in a free trial.
