First - I have yet to see any program come close to the GUI that Ham radio deluxe's satellite module has. Instead of a list of times it shows a visual representation, kind of like a small graph of each satellite's pass for your QTH. You click on the graph/picture that you want to follow and it takes you to the globe layout showing the overhead pass like other programs do.
Second - Gpredict
Note - SatPC32 is the gold standard and best supported PC program to use for rig and rotor control but a little old school on its prediction list.

Gpredict works well. Just right click on the sat name, hit future passes, and it’ll show you like 7 days worth
