An incredibly powerful replacement for the Windows Start Menu, System tray and Taskbar. It is, of course, fully skinnable, with a wide range of themes supplied with the package and many hundreds more available online. NextSTART is also far more than just a pretty face - offering fully configurable menus that can 'float' anywhere on the desktop and which may be called up with a simple mouse button press, a hotkey combination or simply by 'bumping' the edge of the screen with the mouse pointer. NextSTART also offers built-in file browsing and task management, supports full drag-and drop both to and from the menus and includes many other amazing features - including full theme integration with other Winstep Xtreme applications.
A skinnable multi-page tabbed desktop replacement, quick program launcher and document organization tool. Can be used as a simple 'dock' positioned anywhere on your screen, or can alternatively be resized to almost full screen size - offering a quick and efficient way of launching applications, accessing recent documents, managing your internet connections and much more! WorkShelf also supports plug-in modules. Currently included modules are a talking clock, animated recycle bin, CPU Meter, Email Checker, Weather Module, Net and RAM Meters and the Wanda fish Fortune Cookie reader. Modules may be displayed either within WorkShelf itself or free-floating on your desktop!
A multi-level dock system, NeXuS sits front and center, providing super fast access to your most frequently used applications.

From it's generous use of situational context sensitive menus to it's advanced Drag-n-Drop support, NeXuS is not only easy to use - it's a joy!

NextSTART, WorkShelf and NeXuS are far more than just three related applications - they are designed to integrate seamlessly with one another - change the theme in one application and the other applications will automatically change to match.
