SideSlide v5.51

An advanced, portable, unobtrusive, dockable, skinnable, instantly accessible, highly configurable Desktop Extension on Steroids!

SideSlide keeps your desktop clutter-free and organizes your PC life in a unique and personalized way.

With dynamic containers, a full featured keyboard launcher and various innovative features, SideSlide lets you get instant access to everything you have and much more.

SideSlide is the program launcher you never knew you needed, with the ability to contain and organize a bewildering amount of information.

This program respects your system and keeps all of its configuration files in a single folder.

SideSlide is completely free. It doesn't contain adware/spyware or bundled with any 3rd party software.

Dock and hide SideSlide to any screen edge. Browse through your favorite RSS news feeds, keep shortcuts to files, folders and URLs you frequently visit and execute various commands quicker than ever. Add multiple notes and picture slideshows, schedule reminders, save web snippets and more.

Customize the workspace to emphasize the things you use the most and make more information accessible without occupying precious screen space.

By using containers you can shrink and fold to organize your projects, downloading ready-made containers from an online library, linking containers to actual folders on disk, detaching containers from the workspace to claim additional space, various ways of launching multiple shortcuts at the same time, shortcut tags, zooming in and out of shortcuts, news feed reader, advanced keyboard navigation and launcher, different skins, picture containers, quick expression calculator and colored notes; SideSlide is designed to make a great deal of content instantly accessible and neatly organized.

v5.51 - September 7, 2022
Improvements and fixes

- Release version.
- Includes all the changes and fixes from the previous beta version adding a new feature and multiple bug fixes:
- Keyboard Launcher: Entering a name of a shortcut which has the "Tag Start" setting selected now also displays the shortcut's tags. Any other shortcut that shares any of the tags shown will be launched as well when launching the selected shortcut.
- Note font size was not saved for notes written inside RSS containers.
- The container RSS refresh button and Folder Connector path label remained slightly visible when the container was shrunk and Shrink Size "Tiny" was selected.
- Reminder containers were not created correctly so that the entire date and time label is visible.
- Moving shortcuts between containers or containers and the workspace could have caused the shortcuts to appear as if they were not selected anymore, depending on the background colors and gradients used.
- Shortcuts and containers remained selected when clicking inside RSS containers.
- Picture comments had unnecessary spaces.
- The title-bar didn't reset after dragging files from the Windows Explorer in order to open them with workspace based shortcuts.
- Initializing default settings (Settings >> Misc >> Load Defaults) will no longer reset the container and workspace color gradient setting.
- The container resize symbol (at the bottom right of containers) wasn't displayed for non-gradient background containers after moving shortcuts in and out.
- Known issue: Encryption isn't available for RSS containers notes.

Uninstallation: Unlike many Windows programs SideSlide leaves NO TRACES if you wish to remove it from your system (no entries are saved in the Windows Registry). Simply use the Uninstall shortcut (from the Programs Menu) and delete the settings folder which is opened once the uninstallation is complete (unless you're planning to reinstall SideSlide and want to retain the settings).
When using the portable version: To start the portable version with Windows 10/11, create a shortcut to SideSlide.exe and place it in: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp. To upgrade from an earlier version of the portable version: Exit the program and replace the older version of SideSlide.exe with the new file from the Zip archive.
Supported Windows versions: 11 / 10 / 8 / 7 / Vista / XP
