Hi all...
Like the topic says:
is there a way to have sub docks in Rocketdock? I mean an icon that when clicked show a mini dock with other icons/shortcuts? Some sort of KKmenu but developed in horizontal and with no text.

Thanks in advance.
See ya.

someone posted this a while ago...


stacks docklet for rocketdock. just extract into docklets folder, then close and reopen ur dock and press "add item > stack docklet".

the docklet will clear itself the next time u open rocketdock unless u run rocketdock as administrator before hand, and then add the docklets.

I have already looked for this.

I think that isn`t even a way to do it

What a pity :( It would be very useful.

Date of original post does not matter here (Dec 29, 2007)
since the function that is mentioned is still unavailable :huh:

I have tried with these unsuccessfully:
- XWindowsDock
- RocketDock
- ObjectDock
- Rk Launcher

No submenus into the same stack (folders are always opened in explorer)
If you know a way to do it please tell me how :P
Thanks in advance.

That would be cool -

Click on a main icon that's on the dock and then a drop-down menu appears with your custom short-cuts with 16x16 icons to the left-hand side...

These short-cuts could be set up similar to the "All Programs - Cascading Menus" - which is the one thing that's missing from Vista's and Windows Seven's Start Menu.

or did I just described KKMenu? I could never get that to work on my Rocket Dock - could someone walk me through installing KKMenu? I'd appreciate it a whole bunch!

Hey, don't feel bad - I have been looking to find a way or a fix for the default sound (or a custom sound) to be played / heard when you empty the Recycle Bin...

Maybe both of these ideas could be brought to life?

I think this thread is a complete mess :whistle: , seems that everyone writes about a different topic.

What Zazza (the original poster) asked for -on Dec 29, 2007- is a combination of Rocket/ObjectDock and StacksDocklet plugin

But the problem is...

When into a stack you want open a folder (maybe containing more shortcuts) this folder is opened always in explorer. This happens because submenus aren`t supported by stacksdocklet. Only direct shortcuts.

kkMenu (in spanish its name sounds a bit shitty xD) does the job, but there's no support for grid/fan views unfortunately :(

If I'am wrong, please let me know...

The Nexus dock version in Winstep Xtreme allows you to have multiple docks *and* sub-docks. If you install the free version of Nexus (9.11 final has just been released, see topic on this same section) and you click on the Winstep Xtreme link at the bottom of the About tab in Nexus Preferences, you get access to a nice, 50% off, promotion for Xtreme.

So, if you want to put your hands on Winstep Xtreme for only $19.95 (it normally costs $39.90) now is your chance! :)

It's incredible! The "amazing leaders" just can't do it!

- RocketDock
- ObjectDock

I wonder why they haven't added that basic function to their docks

Dell Dock rocks! too bad that it only runs on dell machines ;(

I am analyzing Winstep Xtreme. It seems to be good but very big

The bad is that is much more that a simple dock, it's a complete shell

The good is but the dock is nice and does let you make submenus.


Thanks JcRabbit ;)

I have already done it, I put 7 submenus (one standalone stack for each submenu) but the submenus open sooooooo
slowly. Besides, it eats a lot of ram memory since each standalone stack is executed as a standalone process ;(

Is there anything else?

The only way I know is the one mentioned here: Rocketdock + Stack Docklet. I'm attaching a screen capture of my own PC using stackdocklets...
