It seems there are always tons of requests in this forum for project suggestions, so I thought I'd make up of list ideas for those who ask. If you come up with one you think should be on this list send me a PM and I can add it. Got a couple PM's with suggestions for the list so I'm now adding a few more to this list
  • Automobile maintenance tracker program
  • Home budget program
  • File upload program (using HTTP)
  • FTP program
  • Text editor (more advanced then Notepad of course)
  • Tabbed web browser with favorites, bookmarks, etc
  • Image editor
  • Web cam image capture program
  • Calculator
  • Task manager clone
  • Mortgage calculator
  • Inventory management program
  • Payroll program
  • Billing/Invoicing application
  • Control Library(Buttons, ProgressBars, Grid, etc.)
  • Math Program(Calculus, Trig, Algebra 2, Geometry, Algebra, etc.) includes Graphing.
  • Email Program (POP, IMAP or HTTP)
  • WebBrowser (Include items such as favorites, bookmarks, history list, etc)
More will added as we go along. Hope this helps someone :)

Nice list. Also, a clipboard recorder is a pretty common task, particularly when getting to grips with threading. :)

Not only software, but individual components can be cool to make.

Stuff like:
  • An advanced tab control, with drag/drop to reorder the tabs, a cross button, and a button to add a new tab. (Like in most popular web browsers)
  • Syntax highlighting in a rich text box control
  • Implementing intelli-sense like features (like in VS)
  • A find/replace dialog box can be a neat little project, and it's very re-usable~ Also stuff like regex searches, to make searching much more interesting

Another common software project is data scraping~ there are also a lot of freelance jobs which require data scraping apps, so it could be pretty beneficial to read up on this stuff. Particularly more advanced data scraping, in which you have to provide network credentials to log in and access data from within an account.

I'm adding this link to the list here:

Martyr2's Mega Project Ideas List

There are a ridiculous amount of project suggestions there, enough for anyone to find something to work on.
