Editorial review

Charms Bar is a handy app that will make your user experience more convenient. After installing this skin, you can move the cursor to the corner of the screen and see some shortcuts for several often used tools, including the Start button, settings, etc. This app gives you a quick access to certain components and saves you some time.

There are two skins available, one is transparent and the other one is black. You can use the skin for Windows XP, Vista, and 7.


To install this skin, go ahead and install Rocketdock first. This is an application that makes your PC look like Mac. After that, download Windows 8 Charms Bar Skin and unzip it. You'll see three folders named "Transparent Charmbar", "Startmenu.exe", and "Settings" (this one actually contains the black charmbar). You want to move them into the pre-installed Rocketdock folder.

This app will be useful for those who love new Windows 8 interface but don't want to give up on their habitual systems. Particularly, it gives you an opportunity to extract certain feature without installing Windows 8. All the shortcuts are totally clickable and functional that the skin doesn't have any problems with the performance. The installation is quite messy though so don't forget to check some tutorials and prepare yourself to the process.
