- Easy customization of any Desktop parameter via Admin mode and no chance to do it from the User mode
- Lots of advanced features (hotkeys, Toolbars, freeform animated icons)
- Dozens of various plug-ins
Aston Secure Desktop has two modes - User mode and Admin mode.
From within the Admin mode one can set the programs and applications to be available from the Main Menu, both Toolbars, Panels (regular and vertical) and Desktop. When in the Admin mode, one can also tweak the system date and time and the screen settings, the same concerns Themes and skins.
