Winstep Xtreme includes NextSTART, WorkShelf, NeXuS and Font Browser.

An integrated workspace environment, Winstep Xtreme is a powerful suite of applications that merge incredible usability and performance with breathtaking eye candy. 

Winstep Xtreme:

Transforms your desktop

Lets you have a desktop that becomes the envy of whoever looks at it... everybody loves a pretty face!

Organizes your Applications and Reduces Desktop Clutter

Winstep Xtreme allows you to eliminate the huge clutter from your desktop and quickly organize the applications and documents you use more frequently.

Enhances your productivity

Puts the things you need the most at your fingertips, allowing you to work better and faster. Your documents and applications are always just one or two clicks away.

Simplifies every aspect of your daily work

Instead of a generalist User Interface that compromises in order to accommodate millions of users, with Xtreme you can customize the Interface so it suits you, and the way you work. 

It's FUN to use!

The more you use Winstep Xtreme, the more you'll go 'Wow, this rules!' as you discover all it can do for you.

The Winstep Xtreme suite includes the following applications:


NeXuS is the dock system, and is just perfect for super fast access to your most used applications.

You can have as many docks as you want, and each can have multiple sub-docks! When not in use, docks can hide behind your screen edges, taking virtually no screen space.


WorkShelf is a tabbed dock, better suited to complex organizational duties like organizing documents, URLs, movies, work projects, etc... If a dock is the top of your desk, then Workshelf is all the drawers below it.


NextSTART is the menu system - and takes care of all your task management needs as well. 

Menus are great for accessing infrequently used files and system related commands that aren't easily reachable in the file system or that have no readily user-recognizable graphic representation. You can create as many menus as you want, and, with NextSTART hotspots, you can invoke each of these menus by a super fast screen edge/corner bump with the mouse pointer.

The task management part of NextSTART allows you to efficiently organize and manipulate running tasks and windows. Using nothing but drag & drop, you can re-organize the items in your taskbar so that all your related documents are together (thus easier to find) and where you expect them to be, instead of where Windows decided to put them.


Modules, widgets, gadgets, docklets, desklets, are all different words to describe the same thing: mini-applications that usually live on your desktop and provide a staggering amount of information regarding your system, the weather, etc... 

Winstep Xtreme currently includes the following modules: a speaking Atomic Clock, Recycle Bin, Email Checker, Weather Monitor, CPU, Net and RAM Meters and the amazing 'fortune cookie' Wanda. New modules are constantly being added.

Winstep modules can be placed on your desktop, in docks, in the shelf or even in your taskbar!
