Stardock Tiles enables users to organize their Windows PC tasks into "pages" of "tiles". Tiles appears as a side-bar on a user's display. At the top, there are labels for each "page" such as "Web Browsing", "Documents" or "Apps". Users can drag and drop programs, documents and website URLs onto their pages. If a program is running, users can hold the shift-key down and drag the app onto Tiles immediately. When a program is inactive, it appears as an icon. When it's active, it appears as a live preview tile.
Tiles can be used as a simple "program launching utility", a tool for uncluttering running tasks or creating specific pages for projects. In addition to the various task functions, Tiles can also be skinned to fit your unique style.
