ummm i know this can be done but im not sure how and cant seem to find a tutorial on doing so quickly enough to include at this moment. you could purchase objectdock pro however and run multiple docks.

I assume you have more shortcuts than you can fit into one dock. In addition to Rocket Dock, I solved this problem with a couple of toolbars in the taskbar and the AppLauncher in the sidebar (that I brought over from Vista). But unfortunately the AppLauncher works only in Windows 7 32bit.

Why run both rocketdock and Objectdock, when objectdock has the possibility to have multiple docks?

Hmm, that's interesting. Since I never used Object Dock, I did not know that. I was checking Rocket Dock for that possibility, but it does not seem to support multiple docks.

You just gotta right click the icon in the system tray and select "My docks"

Sergio, looks like this option is not available in the free version: Stardock ObjectDock.

just run one or the other. on the desktop create yourself a folder called something like desktop, desktop shortcuts, shortcuts, etc............ place the program shortcuts you want quick access to in it and drag it to whichever dock you decide to use.

edit: personally i would avoid objeck dock. stardock programs have a habit of eating too many resources.

Stacks is available in Rocketdock and it works great. I use this to organize similar programs together.
