Top Docks for Windows

July 27, 2008

Ever since that fateful day that Apple came out with the Dock for Mac OS X 10.0 we tech junkies got psyched. Many people have had time to come up with docks for Windows and I want to take the time to tell you my top 5 Docks for Windows.

 

1. ObjectDock

ObjectDock is Stardock’s approach to bringing the Mac OS X dock to Windows, and they did an excellent job. ObjectDock can be loaded with plugins, themes, and more. An easy to use control panel and settings help the average user navigate with ease. ObjectDock comes in free and plus versions.

2. RocketDock

RocketDock is a smoothly animated, alpha blended application launcher. It provides a nice clean interfaceto drop shortcuts on for easy access and organization. With each item completely customizable there is no end to what you can add and launch from the dock. Now with added Taskbar support your minimized windows can appear as icons on the dock. This allows for better productivity and accessibility.

3. RK Launcher

RK Launcher is a free application that will allow the user to have a visually pleasing bar at the side of the screen that is used to quickly launch shortcuts. With support for themes, PNG’s and ICO’s and with smooth amazing animations, RK Launcher is a versatile and great taskbar replacement.

4. Y’z Dock

Y’z Dock is a program launcher like the dock in Mac OS X. This application is currently in beta, so please send all reports to the author. In order to add icons, drag and drop a file (.exe, shortcut, etc.) straight from Explorer to the dock area. In order to delete an icon, drag and drop the icon out of dock. Place the PNG images for your icons in the icons folder.

Those are my top docks! Thanks for Reading and please comment!

 

Edit: There is one more that I am sure you other people have already found.

Orbit

This dock is designed completely different. Instead of the straight bar that you are used to, it is a circular dock. When activated it will appear around your cursor. It can minimize, maximize, and anyother option that you could do with a normal dock.
