Real Desktop Program Tutorial

Real Desktop Program Tutorial
Written by Alyssia Walmsley

In this tutorial, I will show you how to use Real Desktop and tell you what it is. First, I will start off by explaining what Real Desktop is. If you already have the Real Desktop installed, skip down to the next part to learn how to use it.

What is Real Desktop?

Real Desktop is a program that you can install on your computer and it gives your desktop a life like a desktop. The new desktop is at an angle. At the top, you will see a glass sitting there. You can twist and turn the icons. If you are tired of looking at your same desktop, try using the Real Desktop. Please see the image that I have provided to get a visual of the desktop. I captured my screen and shrunk it down. That’s why it looks so small.

How do you use Real Desktop?

To start using your Real Desktop program, go to your start menu and open your program. It will automatically start running. You can move your icons around your desktop by dragging them with your mouse. Icons can be turned by grabbing the corner of your icon and turning it. You will notice that your cursor turns into a half circle when you place it on the corner of your icon. When it turns into that, you can turn your icon.

Next, you can change your settings for the desktop. If you are using the Demo version there isn’t much that you can change. If you are using the full version, you have many options for changing your desktop. I am using the demo version but I can see the different settings that are available. I can’t apply them though.

Where can I find it?

To open your settings window left click on the silver R in your taskbar. When the menu pops up, click Settings. That will open your settings window. In this window, you will see many different options. You will see the different tabs at the top of the window. Click on a tab to view the different settings. You can change the background, the icons, the color schemes, and more. You can also choose to allow Real Desktop to start up when windows starts up.

If you are using a demo version and would like to purchase the full version, left click on the silver R in your taskbar and click Buy Now. That will take you to their website and there you can purchase the full version. The full version is $29.95. When you visit their site, you will notice that it is not in English. Simply click the English link at the very top of the site and it will convert everything to English.
