    "MyDock" Program Launcher and Organiser


    If you are bored with traditional Windows Start Menu, Taskbar and Quick Launch menu and want something new, faster & Creative style of managing and launching applications then here is freeware alternative MyDock, a program launcher and organizer.

    MyDock a program launcher/organizer which combines functionality of Windows Start Menu, Taskbar and QuickLaunch.

    Here is how it works. By default dock is populated with number of items such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Word, Media Player etc. If you click an item and application is not yet running, dock will start it. If application is already running, dock will bring all application's windows to the front. Blue circle on the bottom of an item indicates if application is already running.

    The simplest way to add an application to the dock is to start application from anywhere in the system and then 'pin' it to the dock by selecting 'pin' option from the content menu. You can remove an item by using "remove" option in the context menu accessible by right click.

    Download MyDock for Windows

    2. System docklet


    Ctrl + Click : switch to different docklet function

    3. Program docklet

    Re: "MyDock" Program Launcher and Organiser

    There are two configuration files dock.xml and docklets.xml. dock.xml contains basic dock properties like size of docklet etc. I have a version of dock.xml suitable for laptop with small screen in dock_mini.xml. To use this version, copy dock_mini.xml to dock.xml. docklet.xml is regenerated every time you change dock, like pin new application to the dock or move application to a different place.

    docklet.xml is stored under AppData\mydock. dock.xml can be stored under either the application directory or AppData\mydock directory,
