As of right now, there are probably hundreds, if not thousands, of workers developing new software and upgrading current ones such as the Microsoft Office applications. While improvements in these applications do allow us to produce higher quality work, it is hard for users of the previous versions to adapt and be able to navigate through the various interfaces to use certain features (e.g. preparing a footnote or writing a proper function). For those of you who wish for a single button that you could simply press to make your life easier, you should check out KeyRocket.

We’re all familiar with applications that show off websites as native Windows applications, such as Prism and Google Chrome’s “Application Shortcuts”. However, these apps really don’t have much of an advantage over just using a web browser. There isn’t a whole lot more you can do with them and the sites look the same in the desktop window as they do in a browser tab.

This is where Pokki comes in. It’s a brand new application, currently in beta, that aims to bridge the gap between websites and desktop applications by creating site-specific desktop applications.

Most modern operating systems feature similar “desktop” paradigms. Windows is no exception to this. However, as many users notice, the desktop quickly fills up with icons and other shortcuts that you don’t really need. This leads to an organizational nightmare, and the purpose of the desktop, providing quick access to the files, folders, and applications you need, is defeated.

Furthermore, organization is limited to the grid system. There is no way to really “group” certain items together, and no organization beyond making separate sections for your groups. This can lead to confusion and it takes longer to find the things you need. This is where Stardock Fences comes into the picture.
