Litestep Manual (english)

LiteStep is a replacement shell for the standard Windows® Explorer shell.
The Explorer shell provides the familiar desktop environment, start menu, and  task bar.  The developers of LiteStep (and thousands of users) have found the Explorer shell to be static, cumbersome and otherwise too ugly to use.  Thus exists LiteStep.
LiteStep replaces that environment in just about any way that you might find  useful (and eye catching).  LiteStep provides the way to make your desktop  interface unique, enjoyable and dynamic.  The desktop environments that the  LiteStep users create range from a blank screen full of functionality based on hotkeys and hotspots, to eye pleasing morphing menus and sliding toolbars filled with graphical and informative displays of system status, the latest news headlines and the current weather report.
