A typical computer user, when he becomes a bit «advanced» (which means, he uses applications beyond Word and Minesweeper), suffers a lot from the ineffective standard Windows environment (Desktop). Windows lacks Information on the system state, lacks Control over running processes, and lacks Tools in users hands. To perform, view or change Something under Windows, we would need to do a lot of useless clicking, which is just as annoying as it is useless. You will hardly believe me, but I do know something that successfully solves most of these problems. The something is called True Launch Bar.
After you have installed the nifty package, you can place all kinds of advanced tools right on your Taskbar.
Need Information? You can be informed of time and weather conditions, your computers motherboard and batteries state, disk usage and CPU load!
Need Control? You will control (yes, right from the taskbar!) your volume settings, music player, and even the ToDo list.
Love your standard Quick Launch bar? Forget about it! Now you can launch applications really quickly, with menus, large icons, and informative colorful labels.
What about Tools? Hah! Those include, namely, command line, calculator, address book, computer shutdown, and even virtual desktop! (Do not also forget about mail, news, instant messenger, and all-all-all!)
And all of the features are easily pluggable, skinnable, and tunable. Its so easy to make Your Own Ideal Environment with True Launch Bar!
