Your Windows desktop in three dimensions
- Very easy to use
- You can customize icon shape and size
- Spectacular, highly realistic physics
- It doesn't add any new functionalities to the Windows desktop
- It doesn't let you use your current wallpaper
If you're tired of your old desktop and changing wallpapers doesn't turn you on anymore, maybe you should try something a little more radical. In which case, Shock Desktop 3D could be just what you're looking for!
With Shock Desktop 3D you can have your standard Windows desktop completely overhauled and give it an amazing three-dimensional look. As soon as you run the program, your current desktop will be replaced by a 3D environment where you can freely move your icons as if they were some sort of tokens. The animation effects are so realistic that it really feels like the icons have become actual objects.
You can choose to have your icons rendered as rectangles or as 3D cubes, which makes them even more similar to small toys for playing with. You'll probably spend a while tossing cubes around, piling them up and organizing them on your new desktop. Luckily the program lets you save these layouts as predefined user profiles.
That said, the truth is that Show Desktop 3D is not really a very useful app. It does look gorgeous on your PC but it doesn't really add any new functionality to your desktop. Besides, it doesn't let you use wallpapers, which I think is a major drawback.
Shock Desktop 3D applies a very eye-catching three-dimensional effect to your Windows desktop.
