AmphetaDesk is primarily controlled through a browser based system, allowing intense and easy customization of it's look and feel (for more information on doing so, check out our template documentation). Below, you'll see a quick visual tour of the default AmphetaDesk templates. If you've customized AmphetaDesk and want to see your work here, be sure to let us know. All of the images below are clickable so that you may see the full sized versions.
The default look of AmphetaDesk has undergone usability testing, heavy browser compliance, and lots of internal use. It also includes a number of helpful notes to help you through your early usage of the program. Below, we'll run through a quick tour of what you'll find while using AmphetaDesk. We hope it's satisfying - if you have any comments we should know about, be sure to tell us. (Yeah, the logo on the screenshots is different than the one you see above - ignore the man behind the curtain).
