        Is there a (not Microsoft) recommended free scientific calculator program available for installation?

        I was very impressed at the time with WolframAlpha ($2.99)

        I wonder why this is in the ‘Tech Accessibility’ section?

          It might be better here, if you or someone wants to move it:

          Questions: Browsers and desktop software

          Sometimes, it’s a little difficult to know where to place a query.

        If you prefer the old style of entering a complex formula and have an aversion to bulky installation programs, Precise Calculator.

        Here is another program for evaluation, Advanced Trigonometry Calculator.

        Two parts:

        Reinstalled WindowsStore (If you have WindowsStore you don’t need this step.)

        • PowerShell as administrator
        • Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore_12007.1001.2.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.XML”
          All one line.
          Your WindowsStore name may be different depending on version and you will have to locate the name on your computer.

        Installed Calculator² (Calculator Square) from WindowsStore

        PLCalc has served me well for years.

        Note its tabs at bottom for scientific calculator, finance, statistics, conversions and bases.

        It’s free, here.
