While the Windows operating system has a huge number of fans, there are few people who would say that it was free from problems. A common complaint about Microsoft's operating system is the way it looks, and Emerge Desktop aims to help you to completely change the look of your computer by replacing the shell entirely.
The Windows shell comprises everything you see when you switch on your computer - from the Start menu and taskbar to windows and other screen elements. Emerge Desktop can be used to completely replace each of these components and many more.
Emerge Desktop can be used to replace the Start menu, taskbar, system monitor, clock and much more. Each of these replacement tools can be run individually, but providing the emergeCore program is running, Emerge Desktop can be used to replace Explorer completely.
While there are a number of tweaks and setting changes that can be used to change the look of Windows, replacing the shell enables you to take things to the extreme. Whether you are tired of the standard look of Windows, find certain aspects of the operating system irritating, or just want to try something new, Emerge Desktop may be the tool for you.
Note that this is the 64-bit build.
While occasionally a little slow and sometimes unstable, Emerge Desktop provides a great way to customise your computer.
