Hey I found a small bug, when pinning applications if you run one it doesn't switch over to desktop.

EDIT:  NVM I found a way around it, awesome progarm!

Hi I have a large problem with newgen.  I absolutely love this program to death but I cannot use it.  I have two monitors, my right is my main and my left is my secondary.  There's a big black bar on the border between my monitors, and when I click it it opens up some weird website menu that I am absolutely not fond of.  Can you please add an option to disable this, thanks

Could u make a "lite" version of version 11 free instead of giving that trial version ?
az85252's avatar
Can you give me the newgen 11 in a ZIP file please i dont care if its unpaid or lite (but not the trial!!)
RaymonVisual's avatar
you like newgen11 full version without trial, without buying it? not possible. It's not free. You can try it but in trial version. We've made it 50% discount until august 20. because we notice that until now alot of people want to get this. that's why we decided to make it more cheaper (but only until august 20.
