I received an email today from Gizmo's Freeware discussing a handy program that will add context menus to Windows Explorer enabling you to convert
farious file formats to other formats when focus is on a file in an Explorer window. I'm pasting the text of the article discussing this free program after my signature. I installed it on my Windows 7 computer running Fusion 2019 and it worked very well to
convert an m4a song to mp3 format. I'll admit that I'm a big user of Windows Explorer for file management and if you are too, I think you'll like this utility.

There are many file converters available both online and offline, but how about one that works from Windows File Explorer right click (context) menu?
File Converter does just that.
File Converter is a free open source Windows program that converts and compresses a variety of file formats from the right click menu in Windows
File Explorer. Once installed, it appears in the context (right click) menu.
It's very easy to use; right click on a file (or several files) in Windows File Explorer, choose File Converter, and select the file format. A window
opens showing the progress of the conversion and closes when it's complete. Converted files are stored in the same folder as the source file and have the same name with a different extension.
File Converter won't appear in the context menu if you right click on a file that isn't supported, a nice touch that keeps the context menu less
File Converter works with audio, video, image and document files and supports these formats:
Output formats: flac, aac, ogg, mp3, wav
Input formats: 3gp, aiff, ape, avi, bik, cda, flac, flv, m4a, mkv, mov, mp3, mp4, oga, ogg, wav, webm, wma, wmv

Output format: pdf
Input formats: doc*, docx*, odt*, odp*, ods*, ppt*, pptx*, xls*, xlsx*, bmp, exr, ico, jpg, jpeg, png, psd, svg, tiff, tga
File Converter can be customized using the Windows program menu, though the defaults should work well for most people. It's lightweight, fast and
It runs on Windows Vista / 7 / 8 and 10, and the 32 bit and 64 bit installers (.msi) are clean according to VirusTotal.
