Provides quick access to commonly used desktop functions through the use of a slide-out toolbar. Shutdown, restart, logoff, changing video resolution and colors, changing the default printer, adding a printer, accessing Internet options, launching a web browser, launching the CD player and more. Using DeskBar, you can access features and functions more quickly than you can through the nested Start Menu items or trying to remember which control panel icon you need to access what you want. The DeskBar toolbar can be automatically hidden, yet still accessible when a function is performed. The hide and show features can be animated so that the DeskBar slides in and out of view. Evaluation period: 30 days.

FileBox eXtender enhances the Windows user interface in several powerful ways. It adds a "push-pin" button to your "top level" windows. This function prevents any window you "pin" to the desktop from being covered by any other windows. This is great when you want to keep an eye on one program, but use another. (For example, refer to a document window in Word while typing an E-mail in another program.) Another FileBox enhancement is the "roll-up" button added to top level windows. When you click it, the window is "rolled up" leaving only its title bar visible, and uncovering what was underneath it. Click that button again, and the window rolls back down. FileBox further enhances Windows by adding several advanced functions to the standard Open File and Save File dialog boxes. FileBox adds two handy buttons to these standard dialogs. These appear on the right side of the Windows dialog box title bars. These buttons appear next to the Minimize, Restore, and Maximize buttons.
