Apply animated effects to windows when they're opened or closed with this simple application. ZoomOpen resides in your system tray and offers a right-click menu for accessing settings and exiting the program. With the easy-to-use pull-down menus, you can employ a 180-degree right spin, expand outward, or fade in or out when program windows are opened or closed. You can apply settings to just applications, or include desktop and folder windows. A few options let you set the length of the effects or add "trails" using simple sliders. ZoomOpen works well and settings are quickly applied, and though the program doesn't improve any processes, it can be kind of fun. The trial version has a 15-day limit, but that's sufficient time for any user to assess whether he or she is willing to pay the price.
