I teamed up with Raeann, our awesome admin...

A Tour of Multiplicity KVM

Customizing Start10 Searches

A feature I haven’t used too much until recently is filtering my searches. In order to do this, you want to first make sure to go into the Start10 configuration and set the “Show search filtering icons” is on.

Open World vs Linear Games

I don’t know about you, but I play a lot of video games. Something I think about often as I flit between game fads is the kind of experience that each individual game offers. Specifically, an open world game versus a game with a more linear, deliberate story.

Curtains: How to Create Your Own Styles

One of Object Desktop’s greatest additions last year, Curtains lets you add new “modes” to Windows 10. With Curtains, you can customize the Start button, title bar buttons, and title bar, plus adjust hundreds of other small elements in Windows. You can be as specific and detailed as you want to be,...

Happy almost New Year, everyone! I have a little treat for you before we go on break here at Stardock: that’s right, I have a sneak peek at the new DeskScapes!...

Looking Back on Object Desktop 2020

As 2020 draws to a close (I thought it would never end, to be honest!) I thought we would take a look back on Object Desktop and all of the great apps and updates we’ve added this year.

Remember IconX? Let's check it out!

Once I had an idea of what IconX was and what its history was, I had one big question: would this program, which was originally released in 2004 for Windows XP, still work on Windows 10?...
