CastleBar is easy to configure and
easy to use. You can quickly
add buttons to the tool bar by browsing
for the file or program to launch.
Then if you need to change any of
the button's details, just open up
the properties dialog for the button.
Buttons don't have to stay in the
order that you add them. You
can change the order of the buttons
easily at any time using the configuration
menu. You can even temporarily
disable buttons if you don't want
them to appear on the tool bar now,
but may want them back later at the
click of a button.
So, you don't like the default
image for a button on the toolbar
? Maybe, you have a picture
of your dog that you want to put on
a button. Well, CastleBar allows
you to choose your own image to place
on any button.
You can open folders too !!
Have you ever wished that you could
open your Documents folder without
having to hunt for it ? CastleBar
allows you access to your folders
at the click of a button.
