Ive made a list of what I would like to see come back. Here is a complete list of what my Stardock Object Desktop should comprise of:
What I use (and would like to see kept):
Object Dock (please bring back the weather dock !!!)
Start 8 (I use it on my laptop that runs Windows 8 because I cannot stand Microsofts overhaul of the start bar)
What I would like to see come back:
Shadow FX - I know others have said it is available in Windows 8 & 10. I still remember making use of numerous of shadow effects in Windows XP and thought it was a stand-alone product back then. Maybe it was incorporated in WindowBlinds back then ? Or maybe it was Windows FX and contained shadowing effects around the borders of a window back then ? I remember that with this program (or whatever the program was called), you can perform shadow effects and also make special effects when moving windows, or opening and closing windows, and menus the way Windows FX does today (which I am making use of). And yes, I even made use of the transparency levels of moving windows back then which i still do today. Using the shadow effects did take a bit of a hit in performance when opening and closing windows, or when moving a window back during those XP days.
Someone whos been a long-time Object Desktop member like me for well over 10 years has got to remember this feature somewhere back in the Windows XP days. I could not have been the only member using this feature here back then.
I dont make use of Tiles or the Tile Skin Editor. If those programs are sacraficed to bring back the other programs, and to keep Windows 8, Windows 10 Start Menu to work like how the Windows XP Menu does (more so than windows 7, because I like seeing the full list of programs available), I would not miss these programs.
Thanks for looking !!!
