AveDesk Review

Felix Cheng

Customization of a Windows desktop with themeing and widgets called desklets with multiple applications

A review of AveDesk by Felix Cheng

When Windows Vista added sidebar gadgets to standard installations, they became quiet popular among a subset of users but they were unfortunately removed from future versions and updates due to possible security issues.

AveDesk brings back the functionality of desklets to Windows which are very similar to widgets or gadgets on other operating systems. These items are actually little applications that are often connected to web services.

Users of AveDesk are able to create lists of desklets and switch between setups depending on which tasks you're currently on -- perfect for multitaskers and especially useful for people who like to customize their desktop.

There are tons of different desklets available and by default, you have access to some of them when you install AveDesk on a Windows system. Applications are numerous and include anything from calculators to translation and even foreign exchange or text-to-speech programs.

Many of the desklets included with the default installation are quiet helpful and more can be obtained on the web. Even more, AveDesk can also be fully customized to the look of your desktop.

AveDesk can be customized for multiple monitors and its tray icon may also be animated all while offering many more customization options.

That said and with addons available all over the web, AveDesk is certainly a pretty interesting customization option for anybody running a copy of Windows.

AveDesk features and highlights:
  • Skinnable desklets
  • Scalability
  • Accessible interface
  • 3D accelerated effects
  • Built-in library of UI-controls
  • ShowCase
  • Extensibility
  • Themes
  • MultiMonitor Support
  • Unique Control Panel for managing desklets
