Editors' Review

Like other launchers, RecentX gathers recently accessed items in one convenient spot on the desktop. The good news is, RecentX is more advanced and polished than the glorified widgets typical of desktop launchers. The bad news is, it's not free.

Pros

Efficient: RecentX collects your most recently accessed Files, Folders, Programs, Websites, and Clipboard data in a pinnable window with tabbed list views you can search, sort, tag, and filter.

Multiple points of access: In addition to RecentX's desktop app, a tray menu and an unobtrusive desktop gadget known as the Sidebar provide easy access to controls and settings. Custom hotkeys are another option.

Options: RecentX has both general options, such as column headings and always-on-top, and Advanced Preferences like Indexing and file paths for an external File Manager and Command Prompt.

Cons

Help: Clicking Help produced an apologetic note that the Help file was under construction, which, though polite, was no help (and not encouraging for shareware).

Cost: Windows can display recent files and programs, and many free tools, widgets, gadgets, and apps go further, though very few match RecentX's range of superlatives.

Bottom Line

Though not free, RecentX is less obtrusive and more efficient than most desktop launchers we've tried. If you're always hunting up the last file or app you opened, RecentX can bring order to your life. But try it (and the freeware) first.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of RecentX 4.0.11.
