Create various desktop setups that include shortcuts to the apps and files you are using for different projects using this simple app
In the eventuality that you need to perform various types of tasks on your computer, then chances are that you are not quite satisfied with how your desktop is organized. To ensure that you are efficient with all your projects, perhaps it is a good idea to consider a launcher app.
Places is a launcher that you can easily customize to meet all your needs and preferences. The idea behind the tool is to enable you to open applications, files or folders with as little interactions as possible.
Icons are designed to stay in place as you arranged them
Following a quick and uneventful installation, the application opens in full screen mode, an option that you can easily change by selecting the Window mode from the context menu. The interface is modern and sleek, but its performance ultimately depends on the configuration of your system. After all, the GUI comes with impressive animated icons, scrolling between pages and allows you to use shaders, patterns or images as background wallpaper.
As with any other similar tool, you need to dedicate some type to configure your new desktop and arrange the shortcuts for the programs and files you want to access. You can have up to 10 different pages where you include the shortcuts based on your project or type of task you are doing. In case you happen to make a mistake, do not fret as you have unlimited redo and undo to fix it.
The highlight of the tool stems from the fact that once you arrange your shortcuts, everything stays in its place. Simply put, you are unlikely to see re-ordering, sorting or any change when the resolution of the screen changes. In fact, the icons are designed to scale to the screen resolution.
