Windows 7: Desktop Icon Display

Windows Se7en Ultimate x64
 
 
Desktop Icon Display

I have seen a number of screen shots on the forum where the desktop icons seem to be grouped at the top. Having looked around both in my Windows 7 options on the computer and also on the forum don't seem to be able to find any mention of how this is done.


How do they do it?

Hi Bellerophon

Are you talking about the actual Taskbar, (superbar) ?

If so this can be moved to any of the four screen edges by dragging once uou right click on the taskbar and deselect "lock the taskbar"

There is also an option in the properties to allow you to select which edge it attaches to

Bellerophen,

These are dock programs that allow you to put desktop icons on and customize the dock any way you want pretty much. Both work good, you can try both to see what you like.

Looks like these are the one's Barman. Shame they aren't compatible with x64 systems. Anyone know of a similar program that is?

Hi Bellerophon,

As far as I know although Objectdock is a 32 bit application, it is usable on vista x64, you may find though that some more specialised modules will not work.

I have not tried this myself but the Objectdock forums do suggest this

Rocketdock is as you say x86 only AFAIK
