SharpEnviro: Pimp up Windows Shell Interface Desktop Environment
Many customization tweaks are already covered on Blogsolute and here I share a Shell replacement for Windows. Windows Shell consists of main graphical interface (Start Menu and Taskbar) so, you can now change complete Desktop environment.
SharpEnviro (or SharpE) is an open source shell replacement system for Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. This not only gives you a different desktop environment but also fully configurable Desktop interface.
Included in the package are: several themes and icon sets for SharpEnviro. The operation is relatively simple, you can add toolbars and equip them with specific modules. The toolbars have different design options, they come in all shapes and types, including the Windows 7 design (without start-Orb ) is possible.
Toolbar can consist of different modules like it has inbuilt Process graphs, integrated Media player buttons and so on which I liked most. By default, it offers 4 workspaces like we have in Linux GNOME.
After installing SharpEnviro you have to reboot your computer – which will after the next login load SharpEnviro as your new shell. Also, you can revert back to Windows shell by using Change Shell menu.
SharpEnvironment already has number of options which I may not have mentioned above. So, try it yourself and discover them.
