This one might be a bit more Niche, but I recommend Samsung Flow. It allows you to not only get ALL the notifications you would get onto your phone. It also has a feature that the native Windows Phone connection thing, lacks majorly. It allows for you to remote into your phone, so it would be a good way to screen record your phone. It also allows you to transfer data between the PC and the phone over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. It is of course Samsung only, but it works wonderfully.

I would like to recomend ARGUS monitor.
It is much like speedfan, but unlike speedfan it actually works on new systems.
It can control any fan header with any temperature sensor, and thus makes for a rather convenient piece of software to keep your temperatures in check.
It costs money, but the free trial did last me several months before i bought it.
It wasn't expensive, and i bought it because it actually works better than anything out there.

I would like to recommend LittleBigMouse which is a free piece of software that allows you to align two different resolution monitors in windows. For example in my setup my ultrawide is much higher resolution than my secondary monitor which causes the scaling when rearranging the monitor positions to be wrong in windows settings as shown below. This  means that the mouse moves and down when moving between the monitors and if you try and cross the mouse at the top or bottom of the screens you may get an 'invisible wall' that stops the mouse from moving. This is especially annoying when you have two monitors that are almost identical in height. All that I had to do in my case was download LittleBigMouse from here on GitHub and run it and tick the enable box and run at startup and press enable then close it and forget about it in the system tray. As a bonus it is very light on resources only using around 150MB of RAM and usually 0 to 1% CPU usage in task manager when in the background.
