With its easy-to-use dashboard menu, DeskTop for Mac allows users to locate and select a number of decorative and useful options for their computers. Since the application offers the ability to view content from a number of Web sites, there is a wide range of options for those who enjoy changing their computer backgrounds and screensavers often.
After installing into the Mac Dashboard area, the free program must be moved into the active area to operate as a widget. The menu includes a search bar in the upper left, and a row of buttons that activate separate drop downs for wallpapers, screensavers, icons, fonts, and dashboards. Clicking each brings up a list of sources where additional options can be found. For example, clicking a selection in the wallpaper area brings up a list of options in the program's large main window. These sources can be navigated by a scrollbar, and allow the user to clearly see the available selections. When a desired selection is chosen, DeskTop for Mac immediately leaves the dashboard and opens up a Web page where it can be downloaded and installed. Some of these sites require navigation to additional pages, which is a small inconvenience, but ultimately the program makes it easy for users to find customization tools in a number of areas, easily.
DeskTop for Mac collects many options in one widget and is ultimately very easy to use. This widget would be particularly interesting to users who like to change the look and feel of their computer, often.
