Despite its popularity, Windows is not considered to be a perfect operating system so users all over the world do their best to come up with tweaks that would improve its appearance or its functions.
For example, if you want to beautify your desktop, you can install a theme or you can try Winstep Xtreme, a third-party app that offers you an alternative to the traditional desktop experience.
Add task-oriented utilities to your desktop
Once you run Winstep Xtreme, your wallpaper is automatically replaced with a different image and the entire desktop gets a new look, since the taskbar is modified and there are some so-called modules that are added to the desktop.
Due to this tiny apps, you get CPU and RAM monitors, as well as an accurate desktop clock and a weather widget (you can configure its settings to your liking, so that it uses the units and the location you prefer).
You can also enhance your desktop with an animated fish not only adds a dash of color to your PC, but it can also display funny or wise quotes.
Use the integrated dock to launch your frequent apps and folders
Another enhancement brought by Winstep Xtreme is its dock, as it helps you access various files and folders with ease - you can create custom entries so you can open apps or directories with a single click, without any hassle.
Winstep Xtreme also features another launcher that provides access to the desktop items, the recently accessed files, the Control Panel or the Quick Launch of Windows.
Personalize the desktop look and apps
All in all, Winstep Xtreme can prove to be a reliable alternative to all those who want to get rid of the traditional desktop yet who are reluctant in installing themes or other solutions that are too invasive.
