Editors' Review

DAC Desktop makes it much more convenient to sort through all of your open windows and select the one you want via a drop-down slider. Just drag your mouse across the screen to scroll sideways through the programs you have running until you get to the one you're looking for. Then open it with a single click, or check data and return to your main working screen.

When you install DAC Desktop, you can choose to have it start running, automatically. To access the app's interface, just move your mouse across the middle of the top of the screen, and the slider bar will drop down, displaying thumbnails of all your open windows. To navigate through these windows, just move your mouse across the screen, and when you get to the edge, the slider bar will automatically scroll. The app runs from the tool bar in the lower right-hand corner of your screen, and you can access the settings from there. That's where you want to go to explore the app's display options including adjusting the size of the thumbnails, the scroll speed, and the dock position from which you access the scroll bar. There are seven options for thumbnail size that range from tiniest to largest. The default is medium, which is the third-to-largest size. There is also a Help menu, and a link to the DAC homepage, if you're looking for more information about the app.

DAC Desktop has a highly intuitive interface, and it runs smoothly. It is free to download and try, although you'll have to confirm a free trial every time you turn your computer on, and that leaves a large DAC logo semi-transparent in the middle of the screen the whole time you're using it. If you want to buy the full version of the app, it costs $29.99, so the trial is a good option to let you decide how much the convenience of the app is worth to you.
