Editors' Review

by   / October 17, 2012

Stardock Tiles is a program designed to help users organize PC tasks. It's a neat solution for Windows power users who tend to have a large number of applications running at one time or people who work on a large number of projects at one time.

At the top of the application, you will find labels for each page of tiles such as Apps, Web Browsing, and Documents. Drag and drop is fully supported so adding items is easy. We liked that you can even place open applications on the interface by using the Shift key. If a program is not currently active, it will appear as a standard Windows icon. If an application is up and running, it will appear as a live preview tile. Tiles can be used as a program-launching utility program, or used to organize and keep track of current tasks and projects. The one drawback is that since it runs as a sidebar on the desktop, it reduces the size of other windows and some people might not want to sacrifice their desktop space.

Tiles downloads quickly and easily and uninstalls just as quickly and cleanly. While casual users might not have a need for this program, those with a lot going on will appreciate the easy organization that Tiles brings to their desktop.
