TaskDock by SuprVillain TaskDock by SuprVillain

TaskDock gives the Windows 7 Superbar (Taskbar) a bit more of a "dock" like feel. It will center and re-adjust the Tasks area of the taskbar, centering it, expanding and contracting with new apps and old apps, as they are created and terminated.

~** Added in a manual Config Centering applet. from the tray icon menu > Config Centering. Drag the arrow to wherever (only horizontal registers) and double-click on the green arrow to save and apply the centering. **~

TO EXIT THE APP : (read this, ok?) it's icon is located in the system tray, a green orb with a circle around it. Right click. it has only one option, that is EXIT. Give it some time, and it will restore your taskbar to how it should be.

This is my first post in #Design-Shell, hope yall like it.

Will there ever be a version vor Win8.1?

nope, source code lost in a hdd crash.  Also, I have left Windows behind, I use Linux (Kubuntu) now.

Looks really cool, but can you make it work on nVidia Surround multimonitor set (i.e. really wide screen)? My resolution is 5760x1200 and an annoying effect of Surround is that all app icons are on the far left on the task bar. I'd love to have them aligned in the center of the middle screen. But when I try to set the position using your app, it crashes instantly saying:

Run-time error '6':

Center.txt file contains only this " 43200 "

Could something be done ebout this? I can't use DisplayFusion since Windows can see just one big screen, not three separate screens.
PS: Can you also move the Start Orb? I think Windows doesn't support such tweak, but man that would be so cool.
Thank you for what you do!

It's quite good. But after reboot my computer, I have to change its position again, is there any way to make it "stable"?
Thanks :D

It should remember the position, but it has this thing with not doing so that i never could figure out.
pokemon17007 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2011
Yah it remembers the position, it shows up a notepad with number, but somehow Windows, maybe, changes itself. I don't know :p
Manually re-center would be much easier if the green arrow was not disappear until we click [x] - close button.
Your software is the only one do the job "auto center", I very appreciate it :)
SuprVillain Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2011  Hobbyist Artist
well the math for the autocenter is screen.width /2 - dock.width /2 and that # should be where the left of the dock is supposed to be. it's very simple, i dont know why others have not made use of it yet... go figure.

I will look in to re-writing the app in .net. A LOT of people seem to still make use of it, so it is justified i guess.
