Stick ScreenshotScreenTabs

ScreenTabs are customizable windows that are shaped like file folders. They attach to the sides of your screen and can be easily expanded or collapsed. ScreenTabs are the foundation of Stick and are the container in which all the useful utilities can be found.


Quickly access individual tabs no matter which application you happen to be using.

Navigator Tab

Tabs can be created that show the contents of folders. These mini-explorer windows provide true explorer context menu access for folders and files as well as full drag/drop support.

Note Tab

Enter richly formatted or plain text notes into note tabs. Each note tab is associated with a text file of your choice anywhere on disk. It offers basic word processing functions but more readily available than your average word processor.

Internet Tab

You can browse the web using internet tabs. These tabs offer the rudimentary function you expect from a web browser but with the convenience of being readily available in a screen tab. These are great for sites that you frequent throughout the day like weather, traffic, news, etc.

Tab Manager

The tab manager is your control panel for Stick. Create,delete,edit tabs on the fly. Tabs are very customizable with the ability to have their font, colors, slide behavior, transparency and more changed quickly and easily. Save groups of settings as templates and apply them to other tabs with the press of a button.
