1) What is SWiJ SideWinder ?

SWiJ SideWinder is an innovative and powerful quick launch bar which is capable of unleashing the full potential of your Windows operating system and speed up your day to day activities by bringing everything at your fingertips.

2) What Operating Systems does SideWinder support ?

The SideWinder supports all Windows Operating Systems including Windows 7 64-bit, and will work on all Desktop PCs, Laptops and even NetBooks.

3) Will SideWinder speed up my Computer ?

Yes, not only the SideWinder will boost your computer speed by eliminating the necessity to have large number of Icons on your Desktop and Quick Launch Bar, but also it speeds up the launching of Applications and Websites by providing a single click, light weight Interface which consumes very low memory and processing power of your PC.

4) I am a Hardcore Windows user who deals with lot of Applications and Websites simultaneously. How will I benefit from SideWinder ?

The SideWinder is specially designed for such people like you, who need a single tool to open their frequently used Applications and Websites where ever they are and whenever they want. No such innovative and sophisticated tool like the SWiJ SideWinder has been created before.

5) Will the SideWinder capture or fill my Screen Space ?

No. The SideWinder only shows a small Nip at the bottom left corner of your Screen, just over the TaskBar and only expands to its full bar when you bring the Mouse over the Nip. It then shrinks again to the small Nip when you move the Mouse away from its Interface for few milliseconds. Also the SideWinder's Nip will not bother you by showing up, when you're playing Games or watching Movies. Isn't that cool or what ?

6) How rapidly can I launch my Applications and Websites using SideWinder ?

Instantly of course. All the Applications, Games and Websites are opened instantly after clicking their launch Buttons in SideWinder. It only takes a few milliseconds to access any Files or Folders. We have used many quick launch applications and toolbars ourselves, but SideWinder is the best and the fastest of them all.

7) How soon can I start using the SideWinder ?

You can start using the SideWinder immediately after you install it on your Desktop or Laptop PC successfully. Quickly drag & drop all the Items you want on any of the pre-loaded Category Slots and they will be available as launch Buttons to serve you immediately.

8) I want to buy the SideWinder for my Children / Mother / Father who are not Professional Windows Users. What benefits they'll get ?

They will not only benefit using the SideWinder but they'll love using it more and more. They can keep all their Programs and Internet locations they access regularly inside SideWinder and access them instantly without searching through Windows Explorer or typing Internet addresses again and again. This will not only save them lot of time but also helps them to concentrate more on their works.
