Most of us have had to suffer through using Windows' calculator. The scenario usually goes like this: you're trying to crunch some numbers quickly on the job, are working on homework, or trying to make a budget, so you attempt to pull up the program and immediately run into hassles. It works too slowly, finding the functions that you need drives you crazy, and so you either start cursing the screen or relent and pull out your phone or a pen and paper to do your calculations. Why the calculator that comes with Windows is still so limited in its functionality is a mystery, but fortunately there's a better option available: Alt1 Calculator.
