Stiletto is a button bar task switcher/launcher and clock/calendar that sits in a static location on the user's desktop, and allows the user to use any mouse button to run a command. Stiletto includes alarms, task scheduling, sounds control, and wallpaper control. It handles all desktop needs using a single, consistent, but unobtrusive interface.

The Stiletto button bar takes up an amazingly minimal amount of desktop space, can be hidden if desired and can replace many stand-alone utilities. The application is easy to use for the novice Windows user, yet it contains seemingly endless options for the power-user. The included Help files are extensive and easy to apply, and the program's author is easily reached via e-mail.

I have used Stiletto for over two months now, and I don't know how I ever got by without it! The ease of having all of my Windows tasks at my fingertips, with a highly-configurable, hardly-noticeable application increases my productivity beyond any reasonable expectations. Stiletto is an indispensable addition to any Windows 3.x or 95 desktop!
