Publisher's Description

A Windows application launcher with style:

Circle Dock is an application launcher arranged in a circular or ellipsoid dock shape. By using special dock items (dock folders) it is possible to create multi-layered docks which can be summoned using a user-defined keystroke combination and/or a mouse button click - this defaults to the middle mouse button although the program supports the X1 and X2 mouse buttons found on modern mice and, if modifiers are used in conjunction with the mouse, the left and right mouse buttons can also be used.

Circle Dock is 100% managed code written in C# and requires the Net Framework (version 2 or better).

Circle Dock features and highlights:
  • Launch your programs from a circular dock
  • Drag and drop your files, folders, and shortcuts onto a circular dock that you can re-size
  • Rotate the dock with either your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys
  • Change the image shown for the icons and change the skins (compatible with icons and skins for Rocket Dock, Object Dock, etc.)
  • The dock appears where your mouse is by pressing a hotkey (default is F1) or your middle mouse button, other options available
  • Tested on computers with multiple monitors, Windows XP/Vista/7, 32-bit & 64-bit, and requires only .Net Framework 2.0
  • Automatically works on all Windows Vista and 7 computers and most Windows XP computers
  • A new settings panel that allows you to customize many options. It updates your dock as you make changes
  • Change the image used for the dock icons with the easiest method out there: Just set the program to "Icon Replacement Mode" in the right-click menu of the center icon and you can change all the icon images by just dragging and dropping new PNG images onto them
  • Built in support for Windows HD Icons. Vector and detailed PNG's come through with great clarity
  • Toggle the visibility of the dock by moving your mouse to any edge of your screen. By default, the left and right edges are used for toggling
  • Rotate the dock with your mouse wheel or arrow keys (customizable)
  • Reorder and Organize the dock items with new adjustment interface
  • By default, clicking on the center button does not open the start menu
  • New easy method of upgrading from older versions
