Winstep Nexus is an advanced docking system for Windows which displays your most frequently and recently used applications. It is an easy way of accessing your favorite applications in an instant. It has more features than some of the other free app launchers that we covered earlier.
We all need to go to the Windows start menu and select any application we like to use. It takes a lot of time and you can’t even create shortcuts for each application on your desktop. This program makes your task easy by creating a dock for you where you can easily launch and switch between applications you like.
Winstep Nexus has a very user friendly interface. Apart from just displaying your favorite applications, it also manages and groups all your tasks, provides filters and customizes your icons the way you wish to. Its interface is very similar to that of ObjectDock.
Features of Winstep Nexus:
- It displays system tray on your dock
- It gives you an option of coloring and blur behind your backgrounds
- It gives you weather forecast for more than 39000 cities
- It has effects like -zoom, bounce, swing and more
- It supports multi monitors
- It is compatible with skins for all third party docks
- There are animated water like effects for its backgrounds
- It has live icon reflections
- You can drag and drop PNG, ICO and TIFF files directly into the icon to change the appearance of icons
Its a smart way to launch your applications rather than wasting your time finding your favorite applications. If you want a minimalist application launcher, you can try Appetizer, or nDroid.
