This will be my first PC post! Recently I've had a lot of people ask me if there was an easy to set up application dock for Windows. Well... there is! I've been using Stardock Objectdock 2.0 for a long time now, and it gives very easy access to all my games, applications, and folders on my Windows 7 PC. It even supports 64 bit operating systems!
Here's a screenshot of how I set my desktop. Pretty slick, eh?
You can position the dock anywhere on your screen, and even have it replace your standard windows task bar! Best part for us PC gamers is that it uses next to no resources. My task manager reports it only using 8mb of memory.
First thing you'll need to do is download the package - only about 20 MB.
Unzip the folder and run "objectdockplus_200.exe" go through the installation like any program, but at the end, untick the "Run Objectdock" box.
Don't run the program yet!
In the Stardock folder you downloaded, open the "other file" in the folder and click "Patch". Point it to the directory you installed Stardock Objectdock 2.0. With the window still open, hit "Save license" and save it. Exit the program.
You should now be able to run the dock and set it up to how you want it!
I'm currently working on an Xbox 360 JTAG tutorial, so check back soon.
Until next time...
