Introducing Krento: Modern desktop organizer for Windows

Here is very first screenshots of Krento. Krento is freeware widget engine for Windows, based on Karna .NET library. It includes widgets (in Krento terms “stones”) for quick launching applications and web bookmarks, acting in this case as a fast application launcher, accessing virtual folders, like “My computer” or “Recycle bin”, displaying current IP address of your PC, etc… The development of new stones is very easy and every new release of Krento will include more new interesting stones, extending Krento functionality.

  1. Krento does not appear to be compatible with Windows 7 x64. I know of at least 2 users that have tried it. It just starts and exits.

    Thanks

  2. Thanks for this great program!!
    I created a new circle just for links to some file folders on my HD. When I drag and drop, the icon on the stone becomes an open file folder, even though the icon on my HD is different. So now I have 12 stones, all with the same icon! Is it possible to use other icons?

  3. Hello Dexter,

    As usual the very first release of any application Krento implemented the limited set of features, but it will be improved in the future.

    There is no such settings for selecting the folder icon yet, but it's possible to change the icon manually.

    First, you have to find your *.circle file. Usually it's located in “C:\Users\UserName\Application Data\Krento\Stones\” folder on Windows Vista or “C:\User Data\UserName\Application Data\Krento\Stones\”.

    Open this file with Notepad.

    You will see the definition of your stone, like:

    [c1f4da11-8dbe-4984-9c69-409b5294486b]
    StoneClass=Krento.RollingStones.RollingStoneFile
    Target=D:\Download
    Description=Download
    RunCount=1
    RunLevel=0
    Rating=0

    Now you have to find the file with the name that stays in [] and extension .png in “Cache” folder. In my example the name of the file is c1f4da11-8dbe-4984-9c69-409b5294486b.png

    The cache folder is located in the same folder as “Stones” folder.
    “C:\Users\UserName\Application Data\Krento\”

    The size of the image is 48×48

    If you replaced the image in the cache folder with your own, Krento will use it when restarted.

    If you miss some functionality, you can always use UserVoice site for making new feature requests: http://eidnative.uservoice.com/pages/37468-krento-feature-request
