Keeping your desktop clean is a difficult process to put in motion, but when completed a greater possibility for you to keep it that way becomes available. Zum is a small utility that helps you sort out all of your desktop schortcuts and get rid of the ones that have no further use.

Organize everything into categories.

Running the application will only bring up a small toolbox on your desktop, with all necessary tabs for you to store shortcuts in. these can be managed through the “Applications and Web Sites” menu. Doing so is simple and it only requires you to write down the title of the given item, as well as specifying its exact address.

In addition, you can also keep track of your favorite web pages, following the same steps for adding an application, the only difference being the URL mentioned in the source field. There is virtually no limit for what can be included.

Create your own skins

From the “Settings” menu you are able to give the small toolbar a personal touch. There are several skins you can choose from, or even design your own in a simple process. You are given access to a skin creator where you can open an image file to be displayed on the toolbox.

Category icons can be given a different color to make them suit your liking. Furthermore, additional skins can be downloaded in case you feel uninspired.

To end with

Taking everything into consideration, we can say that Zum can make your desktop a cleaner place. It allows you to store virtually anything you need into different tabs, providing quick access. Also, you can add your personal touch to the toolbar and make it blend in just right.
