Aston 2.0.3.0

New generation of Windows desktop enhancement, beauty and power at your service.
Aston is a desktop enhancement tool that changes the whole look of the operating system, boasting several skins to modify the Task Bar, the Start Menu, desktop icons and the other items on your screen.

With a logoff mandatory after installation comes to an end, Aston replaces the Windows interface completely, coming with its very own set of widgets and toolbars.

For example, by default you get dedicated widgets to see the current time, calendar and weather, but also with a dock-like toolbar for launching Internet and office applications.

The Task Bar boasts a whole new design, so is the Start Menu, but the user can change not only the skin, but every single item on the screen. You can choose to enable new panels and widgets, delete the existing ones, modify the look of certain elements or pick a new wallpaper.

The new Windows look is highly customizable and you may spend some time setting it up, but in the end you may get a gorgeous desktop with tons of handy utilities.

If you are wondering, Aston needs just a reasonable amount of computer resources to work properly and it seems to work without a flaw on all Windows versions. Truth is, we're not so impressed by the way it changes the Windows 7 interface, as it brings back the classic Task Bar layout and some of the widgets already available in the operating system.

Other than that, the application sports several other goodies, including live wallpapers, animated skins, color labels for desktop icons, hotkey manager, events manager, sound effects and multi-language support.

Overall, there's no doubt Aston is a great software solution that can help a lot of users turn their Windows operating system into a more eye candy working environment.
