Developer Stardock, which has released a number of popular Windows 8 programs such as the Start8 desktop menu, has launched a new utility for Microsoft's latest OS called ShadowFX, which allows users to add shadows to desktop windows.
"ShadowFX enables users to add distinctive drop shadows to the windows of Microsoft's Windows 8 user interface. ShadowFX immediately personalizes the user experience by offering a choice of standard or colored drop shadows that add dimension and visual separation to the desktop. Nearly a dozen drop shadow styles are included with each ShadowFX download and more will be available for download soon at Stardock's WinCustomize.com community site.
ShadowFX is priced at $4.99 as a stand alone product or it is included in the company's Object Desktop collection of Windows utilities for $49.99 a year, which includes access to beta versions along with access to new programs as they are released. What do you think of Stardock offering Windows 8 and 8.1 desktop users some new features?
