Windows 7: shortcuts

shortcuts

I like windows BUT my pal is a Mac person. I love how all his shortcuts on his desktop are all on the side and hidden until he sort of scrolls up and down and they sort of curve around the sieds of the screen. Can Windows 7 do anything like that....

reasom I'm asking is we both like the shortcuts on DT as its quick to get to the most used websites.....mail/google etc etc

You need third party apps to do that.

For eg - Object Dock

It cant be done with windows itself but i bet you can find a 3rd part software.

Rocket Dock for Windows 7. In Vista and XP, you put them into a folder on the desktop and push the folder all the way into the top (or the side). Then you right click on the dock and specify "Hide" and other options. Same with Rocket Dock.

This is how my Rocket Dock looks like whilst I have the cursor on it. When I withdraw the cursor, it hides. The icons on which the cursor is pointing are always the biggest. It acts like a carousel as you move the cursor along the icons.

How about a button in the task bar that gives you a pop up with all your short cuts, links, etc. You can put folders in there that when hovered over give you a menu list. It is very easily customized, and very non intrusive...it is called Quick Launch, comes with Windows (have to create the tool bar in Windows 7) and frankly the only thing that has suited me since it first came out with IE yes 4.

boastree is right. Toolbar(s) are an excellent alternative. See this example:

He's wanting the "bling" of something like RocketDock.

Hello mikal83, have a look at this though.

Quick Launch - Enable or Disable
