One thing that Windows lack is a clipboard manager. If you are unsure what a clipboard manager does and when you can use it, then let me give you an example. Suppose you are working on a document and you have two more documents open, doc A and doc B, as reference from where you are taking data and other snippets of information while preparing your document. Say, you have a certain piece of text X that you have to insert repeatedly at a number of position on your document. Apart from that, every now and then you are copy pasting lines, tables and other pieces of information from doc A and doc B to your own document. Now since you have only one clipboard, i.e. at any time only one object can be copied to the clipboard, every time you have to insert the text X you have to copy it and then paste it and then it would be replaced by some other item and again you have to copy it the next time you paste it. A lot of time is wasted in copying the same item over and over again. This is when a clipboard manager comes handy.

Windows usually come with a lot of fonts to help you stylize your documents. Some of the fonts are pretty and nice while some others are just simply horrible. Nobody actually uses all these fonts. And if you install some graphics or publishing software like those from Corel and Adobe, they install some more fonts of their own. So when you are editing a document and desire to change the font you will find yourself scrolling through hundreds of fonts which is both tedious and annoying. Apart from that, the more the fonts you have on your system the more is the time required for Windows to startup. So it's always advisable to limit the number of fonts installed on your system.
