WindowFX Review

Fernando Ortega
Add drop shadows, morphing and more to Windows
A review of WindowFX by Fernando Ortega

WindowFX 3 is a very cool styling application developed by StarDock. It can give Windows XP users a taste of what Windows Vista and Windows 7 users currently see as a desktop and adds thumbnails familiar to newer versions of Windows. Additionally, WindowFX improves the Windows 7 alt-tab function and offers flexible task management.

WindowFX is licensed as Shareware for the Windows operating system / platform from desktop enhancement software and can be used as a free trial until the trial period ends (after 30 days). The WindowFX 3.0 demo is available to all software users as a free download with potential restrictions and is not necessarily the download of the full version.
