Editors' Review

+
Though this quirky program lets you create and display prank messages on your desktop, it's light on assistance. Getting up and running is the first hurdle. Right-clicking DrWindows' system tray icon brings up a mini menu that doesn't let you into the program. The help file reveals that to access the small interface, you'll need to hit Ctrl and right-click the tray icon, and an additional option to configure settings is then offered. Once you're in, the program comes with 56 amusing dialogs that mimic standard Windows messages, complete with icons and sound effects. It can be set to begin at start-up and display at specific time intervals or with a user-defined hot key. Although it claims that you can create your own messages, its help file doesn't provide guidance on how to do so. In the end, DrWindows' tricky scheme injects some good, clean humor into those dreary workdays free of charge.
