Stardock Central is here in beta form, but even though it is still being worked on, it’s a great way to download and update your various Stardock software apps (and some games) like WindowBlinds, Fences, DeskScapes, etc. Stardock Central is very easy to use, but I’m going to give a quick overview in case you aren’t familiar with it.
First, get the free download from here.
As you can see the interface is pretty straightforward. You can see any available updates for your apps, and the list of available software that you can download. To download or update an app, just check the box and click the install button. Very simple!
One question people have always asked is if there’s an easy way to find the expiration date of their subscription to either Object Desktop or WinCustomize. You can now find that right inside Stardock Central.
If you need to see what software you have installed, and the version number, you can also find that very easily.
If you need additional options for Stardock Central, just click the icon in the screenshot below and you will enter the settings windows. Here you can set a variety of options like enabling beta downloads, set file locations for downloads, and more.
Again, Stardock Central is a great way to manage your Stardock purchases. If you need to access your software through the web, just visit download.stardock.com.
