Smart Desktop: Gorgeous Start Panel For Windows

Smart Desktop is a program, files and folder launcher and system monitoring utility for Windows that wants to be the start panel of Windows. Smart Desktop allows you to launch Windows programs and system utilities, and commonly accessed folders like Documents, Pictures and Videos. It also holds shortcuts to different websites. It displays weather data and forecast of any location, and carries a couple of basic system usage indicators like memory, CPU, network and battery.

Smart Desktop has a beautiful Aero interface, nice looking icons and near perfect layout. At the top is the navigation bar that leads to weblinks, wallpapers and videos. Below the navigation bar is the weather display, calendar, clock and an image rotator, similar to the one found on Windows sidebar. Beneath this is the launcher section on the left, and various system indicators on the right. Smart Desktop looks great on the desktop.

The program window can be dragged and placed anywhere on the desktop. There are no visible buttons to close or minimize the program. To close, one needs to right click on the program and choose Exit. The program cannot be minimized or resized.

As the program is still in beta the wallpaper and video sections are not yet available. The shortcuts for various applications, folders and internet websites are also hard coded into the program – currently, you cannot change them. Customizability options, at the moment, are non-existent, but we expect this to change when the program is released.

Stability is also an issue, but the software manages to stay afloat.

If you are using Windows XP, you can install the program right away. On Windows 7 you have to start the installer in Windows XP compatibility mode.

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
