is a feature-packed desktop launcher which allows you to organize a bunch of tools in a customizable working environment, such as a folder container, notes and file shortcuts. It is designed to all users who are looking to personalize their desktops.
This piece of software has a portability option available in the installation procedure. Therefore, you can save SideSlide on a removable device (e.g. USB flash drive), store it on any computer and directly run its executable file. In this case, no items can be found on the hard drive or in the Windows Registry after app removal. Moreover, you can always have SideSlide with you when you’re on the move.
The interface of the program is based on a stylish layout where you can lock/unlock the workspace for editing, as well as shrink/expand and fold/unfold all containers.
By opening the context menu, you can access a wide range of features. SideSlide allows the creation of containers (file or directory shortcuts, web URL, system command), folder containers, RSS news feeds, notes, reminders and pictures.
Each of these elements can be detached from the workspace area and includes its own set of configurable settings. For instance, you can submit RSS news feed, note and shortcut containers to a library, start slideshows from pictures, and choose container icons.
Some customization properties are available when it comes to the appearance of the items (change the background colors). Plus, you can edit tags and alter SideSlide settings (e.g. explode/implode effect, special effects, floating toolbar, minimize to system tray).
SideSlide requires a moderate amount of CPU and system memory, has a good response time, supports keyboard shortcuts and includes helpful tips. No error dialogs have been shown in our tests and SideSlide did not freeze or crash. Thanks to its intuitive layout and rich features, SideSlide can be handled by both first-time and experienced users who want to better organize their tasks.
