With Windows 8, Microsoft made the biggest visual changes to the popular operating system in the last years. Newgen is a program that can bring the Modern UI to your Windows 7.
The app has a simple interface that is easy to use, regardless of the level of experience you have.
An interface that resembles the Windows 8 Modern UI takes over the screen once you launch the app. It displays a link to the Windows store, one to the app’s settings and the time and date. Clicking the latter brings up a lock screen with the wallpaper that currently decorates the desktop and the date and time, as well as the day of the week.
The program lets you display a taskbar when it’s in fullscreen mode and use a thumbnail bar. Furthermore, the items can be dragged to any place on the screen.
The background and Startbar background may also be modified by choosing one of the available hues.
Newgen comes with Widget supports, thus letting you add various items to the screen to help you launch the favorite apps and websites. Thus, you can receive tweets, emails and weather reports in just a few seconds. You can also scan through the pictures on the computer, as well as through the music and video files.
The switch between the Modern UI and the regular Windows 7 can be made by simply pressing the Windows button on the keyboard.
The bottom line is that Newgen is a nice program that completely changes the way the computer looks and acts. The program is perfect if you want to wait a while before upgrading the system to Windows 8. Inexperienced users should find this utility easy to install and customize.
