Table of contents
Download3K is a huge archive of free and free-to-try software programs and games for Windows. We review and categorize these products in order to allow the visitor to find the exact product they and their system needs. We strive to deliver only the best products to you, the visitor. We add and update more than 300 items on our site every day. All our services are FREE of charge for the visitors.
Download3K is composed of 15 main categories, each with its own set of subcategories.
2. Menu and Search
The Menu is located on top of each page and is composed of Home, Submit, Top, Links, Contact, Help, Bookmark.
The Download3K Search Engine does a search using a search term provided by the user and returns the best results sorted by relevance.Category Structure:
The categories are arranged on a two-leveled tree-like structure, the Home being the top level Category List. Hence, a category such as Home > System Utilities > File & Disk Management shows the user the way categories and software is organized on our site.
Clicking on the parts of this path takes you to that specific place. For example, clicking on Home takes the visitor to the category list, while clicking on System Utilities leads the user to a page listing the sub-categories of the System Utilities category. Clicking on File & Disk Management will take the visitor to a page listing the programs in this category.
Sometimes the number of programs in a category is very large, so they are listed on multiple pages, 30 on each page. The program listing format is similar to that of the index listing. An additional option is that users can sort the programs list by some criteria as: Latest, Best rated and Most popular (number of downloads).
