    You want to customize your desktop in an original and productive? Go 3D! With the free BumpTop, you can create a real office work and leisure in 3D with original animation effects. You can then stack the shortcuts and files on your desktop, stick post-its everywhere, use 3 extra faces on the screen to decorate your desktop photo frames, or dynamic shortcuts to your favorite software and websites as well as to the news of your social networks (Facebook, Twitter). All the usual orders and options from the context menu of Windows of course remain functional and available quickly. Note that BumpTop requires a 3D graphics card, featuring OpenGL 2.0 drivers. If the software does not detect the correct drivers, it will direct you to a Web page that will help you find the ones suited to your graphics card.
