Windows 7: Object Dock question

Object Dock question

I gather that several people here are using Object Dock.
I tried it too and I like it, but is there a shortcut to bring it up front when it's hidden behind other programs?
It shouldn't be on top all the time but now I have to minimize all windows to get access to it which isn't too handy.

Hi!

1- Right-clic you dock
2- go to settings, you should have that kind of window
3- clic on accessibility and check the " keep on top" option.

I hope this help...

The easiest way to get what you are looking for is to set the dock to always on top and to autohide - in this way moving the mouse to the correct area will automatically show the dock

How do I enable autohide? I have the free version, not the plus one.

Haven't actually used it since XP days but if I recall it should be in the general settings

I use plus version for a long time now, so i can't remember exactly
but you certainly can follow the contextual menu of the dock such as
right clic the dock > find something like "view" > "autohide"

If you set the dock to Hide in the background when not in use, you should (even with other windows.. i.e. firefox open) be able to move your mouse to the very top of the screen, about a second later the dock should come to to the top.

I have used it. I use free version when my second moniter is connected when doing web design work. (HP dv7) two 19-20" screens! I am happy :-)

The problem that I have with ObjectDock is that nothing in Windows ever stays "Always-On-Top". Not even desktop gadgets. I would love it if there were a way to bring it to the front when it inevitably gets buried. Right now, I have to minimize all of my open windows. Turn "Always-On-Top" off and then on again. Why has this always been a problem in Windows?
