TopDesk Editor's Review

It feels better, when the main screen of the computer looks good. However, in most of the cases, you would find the main screen or desktop of the computer is filled with the ugly looking icons which spoil the beauty of your desktop, and there comes the need of Desktop beautification software. Hardly any person out there, who loves these icons but at the same time, no person would dare to not to keep the icons on the desktop as those are useful. However, software is there which would help you to give your desktop a beautiful look.

Though, many software programs are there, which could help you to give your desktop a beautiful look and we’ll take a look at Topdesk. If you want to give your desktop screen a deft and artistic touch, then you should go ahead to use the TopDesk. Let us find out why you should or should not use TopDesk?
First of all, it is easy to make TopDesk your own. You could download the software from the internet. It would not take much time and after that you need to make few clicks to run and install the software in your desktop. After the successful installation of the software, you could use it whenever you want. You don’t need to stay connected with the internet to use this software. However, this software eat up the RAM of the system like a hungry kid. So, if you don’t have ample amount of RAM in your PC, then installation of TopDesk may slow down your computer.
By the way, you could install TopDesk in your PC, if your PC is running on any Windows platform. If you are not using Windows run PC, then you have to wait for the other versions of TopDesk to be released. You should have a processor newer than the Pentium 3 and at least 256 MB RAM in your PC to install the TopDesk. One more thing, you should have a video card of more than 32 MB to install TopDesk. This is also considered as a disadvantage of this program.
With TopDesk, you could wipe out all the traces of Windows from your desktop to reveal the full screensaver. You can even kick out the minimized Windows menu from the screen by a single click from the desktop. When you want the Windows’ icons, then you could get those back by another click. It is really cool to hide and show the Windows menu with TopDesk.
Now, you could configure hotkeys of your own, using TopDesk. You can create both mouse and keyboard hotkeys as per your requirements. You could get live updates of Windows, even if when there is no Windows function is available on your desktop. If you want to get the live updates, then you could get those. If you don’t want the live updates, then you could disable this function also.
The 3D flips function of TopDesk would allow you to keep 3D screensavers on your screen. By keeping 3D wallpapers, you could give a gorgeous look to your PC. Only Mac users have this feature before, but as a Windows user, now you could also enjoy this cool feature. One loophole, only 3 layouts are available with TopDesk. You have to satisfy with those only.

If you work with multiple windows at a time, then TopDesk could help you to work faster. Switching from one window to another window takes time and at the same time it is a hectic experience also. However, with TopDesk by your side, you could switch from one window to another with ease and you would find that your productivity has been increased significantly. It is a fast software and performs the tasks in a jiffy; but you would find the software is not performing as it should be, when you are playing games.

Positive Points:
Better than built-in Alt-Tab switching feature.
Many options to play with.

Negative Points:
Only three kinds of switching layouts are available.
Does not work well when games are being played.

TopDesk is a good utility if you want to change the way your computer responds to Alt-Tab feature and change the keys assigned to it. It’s available for just $9.99, which is not much, for anyone who badly needs this feature. But, with the advent of Windows Seven and now Windows Eight, there is massive reduction in need of such programs. I don’t it is useful enough for users using Vista or Seven but for users who are still stuck on XP may enjoy using it.

Rating: 2.5/5

TopDesk Publisher's Description

TopDesk radically reduces the time you spend switching between tasks by giving you the ability to quickly find the window you want from a thumbnail view. With a single key press you can instantly view thumbnails of all open windows, display thumbnails of windows belonging to the current application, or hide all windows to quickly access the desktop.

The Exposé feature of Mac OS X is regarded by many as the most elegant and user-friendly way to switch between windows, and is considered to be one of the features that sets OS X apart from Microsoft operating systems. TopDesk brings a Mac OS X Exposé-like experience to Windows XP and Windows Vista.

While Flip3D is only available in premium versions on Windows Vista, most Windows XP and Windows Vista Home Basic computer systems are more than capable of running it. With TopDesk, you can harness the full power of your current hardware and experience Flip3D-like window switching on Windows XP and Windows Vista Home Basic.

If you're a Windows Vista user you'll know that Flip3D lacks many of the traditional Alt-Tab features, such as quickly switching between the last two applications, that are second nature to most users. TopDesk provides you with a Flip3D-like window switching experience that still behaves like traditional Alt-Tab switching.

Windows Vista only lets you use Flip3D when the new Aero interface is enabled, but many users are forced to disable Aero to improve performance. TopDesk gives you a Flip3D-like window switching experience that works even when Aero is disabled.
