I'd like a guitar tuner program for my Windows 8.1

I may have had such a program on one of my older machines, that is no longer operating, but it would have been on an older OS anyway.

I can plug a mic into my box, and would like to see a visual display that would register the sound of each string so as to guide me in tuning it well. (I am not so precise in my judgement of pitch that I can tell when I'm right on the note.)

I own a device that does this, but I don't have it handy, and it might need battery replacement when I find it.

I tried a search engine, but it has gotten so complicated lately--without a recommendation from a reputable screener of programs, I am afraid to get malware. And, the tuning aids that just play the note for you aren't much help to me. If my sense of pitch was good, I would just tune the strings relative to each other for my own playing and singing.

Leigh, do you have a recommendation, or even a link? You're one guitarist I remember in our group. I remember JL had a group, but I don't remember if he played six-string guitar.

I only ever tuned one string, on my old 12-string Strat.

I could tune all the others, from that.

Buy a gizmo that clips on the head. Cheap enough.
