An integrated workspace environment, Winstep Xtreme is a powerful suite of desktop enhancement utilities that merge incredible usability and performance with breathtaking eye candy.. The Winstep Xtreme suite includes the following applications:.. Nexus Ultimate:.. Nexus is the dock system, and is just perfect for super fast access to your most used applications.. You can have as many docks as you want, and each can have multiple sub-docks! When not in use, docks can hide behind your screen edges, taking virtually no screen space.. Workshelf:.. Workshelf is a tabbed dock (Shelf), better suited to complex organizational duties like organizing documents, URLs, movies, work projects, etc.. If a dock is the top of your desk, then Workshelf is all the drawers below it.. The Shelf makes it possible to have a 'clean', uncluttered, desktop with no icons on it whatsoever by hiding the icons on the Desktop - icons that can then be quickly accessed via the Shelf's Desktop tab.. NextSTART:.. NextSTART is the menu system - and takes care of all your task management needs as well.. Menus are great for accessing infrequently used files and system related commands that aren't easily reachable in the file system or that have no readily user-recognizable graphic representation.. The task management part of NextSTART allows you to efficiently organize and manipulate running tasks and windows.. Modules:.. Modules, widgets, gadgets, docklets, desklets, are all different words to describe the same thing: mini-applications that usually live on your desktop and provide a staggering amount of information regarding your system.. Winstep Xtreme includes the following modules: a speaking Atomic Clock, Recycle Bin, Email Checker, Weather Monitor, CPU, Net and RAM Meters and the amazing 'fortune cookie' Wanda.. Winstep Start Menu Organizer Pro:.. The Winstep Start Menu Organizer is an application designed to help you organize and clean your Windows Start Menu.. Over time the Start Menu can get so cluttered that you end up spending a lot of time simply trying to find the program you want to run.. The Start Menu Organizer allows you to quickly group your Start Menu shortcuts into a specific set of categories thus making finding what you are looking for much, much, faster!.. Features In Depth.. Full Integration.. NextSTART, Workshelf and Nexus Ultimate are far more than just loosely related applications - they were designed from the ground up to integrate seamlessly with each other: change the current theme in one and all other applications in the suite will automatically change to match, Workshelf and Nexus use the current NextSTART theme to skin their context menus, NextSTART created  ...   mouse pointer, docks can be hidden off-screen until needed, the tabbed Shelf can automatically collapse so only the tabs remain visible, Desktop Modules can be hidden until invoked by a keyboard shortcut or other activation method, and even floating docks can be collapsed to a single control icon.. Reduce Desktop Clutter.. Besides shortcuts dragged into it, the tabbed Shelf is also capable of displaying the contents of special shell folders such as the Desktop, My Computer, Control Panel, Recent Documents, and so forth.. It's even able to display the contents of selected folders in your hard drive, which can then be manipulated via drag & drop as usual.. The Shelf makes it possible to have a 'clean', uncluttered, desktop with no icons on it whatsoever by telling Winstep Xtreme to hide the icons on the Desktop - icons that can then be quickly accessed via the Desktop tab.. Tabs in the Shelf can also have keyboard shortcuts associated to them to quickly make the Shelf simultaneously come to the foreground and open that particular tab.. Superior Task Management.. Still running Windows XP or Vista? No problem, Winstep Xtreme can bring the new Window 7's "Superbar" ability to these Windows versions too:.. Winstep Xtreme is also capable of displaying fully functional copies of the Windows system tray and list of running applications on docks, menus and even tabs in the Shelf.. You choose!.. Live Icon Reflections.. The first Windows dock to feature optional 'live' icon reflections: reflections update in real time if the source icon animates or changes.. How much of the icon is reflected is also user configurable.. Powerful Object-based Drag & Drop.. Object based interface offers "drag & drop" capabilities that make it simple to manage your applications, files, printers, etc.. Use Drag & Drop to move/copy/re-arrange objects from one location to another, to both inside and outside of docks.. Drop documents onto dock application objects and have them automatically loaded.. You can quickly change the images used by Nexus items simply by drag & dropping your favorite.. ICO,.. PNG or.. TIF file onto the chosen object.. Special Effects.. Lots of special effects such as icons zooming, bouncing, glowing, rocking, swinging, squishing, spinning, exploding, etc, on selection, shifting to make room for items about to be dropped, bouncing on application launch, visual feedback for specific actions, incredible 'fluid' effects that make docks and icons behave like liquid surfaces, menu opening animations, sound effects for specific events, and lots more!.. Menus can have a wide range of opening animations, from the classical slide and fade to the new Fire, Flare, Heal, Explosion and Magic menu opening animations!.. Blur Behind.. Automatically blurs the background of semi-transparent objects (Vista and above only).. Full Multi-Monitor Support.. The taskbar, docks and the Shelf can be docked to any screen edge or left floating on any monitor.. Virtual File System Objects support..

Changing the tab type in the Tab Properties dialog had no effect.. Fixed issue where an horizontal sub-dock of an horizontal parent dock at the top of the screen could slightly overlap the parent dock.. When the new 'toggle activation' setting is enabled, the dock will only toggle collapse if it is already the foreground dock, otherwise it comes to the foreground first.. Centered horizontal sub-docks could appear partly off-screen.. It was not possible to hide a dock while a running task was flashing/asking for attention, as the dock would immediately pop up again.. The dock now only uncollapses automatically if a new window asks for attention.. Fixed reserve screen space problem with setting 'prevent maximized windows from overlaping the dock/Shelf' and NOT setting 'Respect space reserved by other docks, toolbars.. '.. It was not possible to copy an item right next to itself in the Shelf.. Some of the particle dock mouseover effects could appear cropped if the attention effect was not set to 'Jump'..

Minimum vertical and horizontal icon spacing for the Shelf has now been set to 10 pixels to prevent rendering problems.. Fixed several graphic glitches with the Shelf mouse over effects..

Fixed overlay 'leftovers' problem that could happen when using a theme such as Nx-Lawn on a dock with magnify + other combo as the mouse over effect.. The 'Disable animations for this module' and 'disable sounds for this module' settings were not doing anything.. Some of the settings set via a module settings panel invoked by right clicking on a module in the dock were not being applied immediately..

Programs run through Hotspots (including applications in the Quick Launch section of the taskbar) were ignoring the 'Run as Adminstrator' setting which was also not being saved.. Un-hiding the NextSTART taskbar from the screen edge would not automatically make it the foreground window, which meant the expanded taskbar would pop up behind maximized windows and thus remain not accessible.. The Resize cursor would show when hovering over a NextSTART taskbar hidden into the screen edge.. Fixed potential flicker in the show taskbar animation.. Keyboard navigation on menus was only working properly for menu items with upper case first letters.. Opening menus with one or more items pointing to disconnected removable drive or a non-existing drive could take a long time.. Fixed issue with adding a hotspot or quick launch button that activated a Control Panel virtual folder menu.. Fixed issue that could crash NextSTART when displaying a Control Panel menu too big to fit on the screen.. Fixed issue from last beta where bumping the screen edge would bring the NextSTART taskbar to the front even if a full screen application was running.. Startbar would not reserve any screen space right after unchecking 'Keep windows taskbar visible' and applying.. Fixed issue that could potentially prevent navigating menus using the keyboard..
