Windows 10 apps in youir dock !!!


It doesn't matter if it's Rocketdock or Vexus Dock or whatever !!!

1- Start 'Run' (by pressing [WINDOWS]+[R]), type in 'shell:AppsFolder' and press [ENTER].
2 - right click app and create shortcut, it will give you the following warning: Windows can't create a shortcut here. Do you want the shortcut to be placed on the desktop instead?

click Yes

3 - Drag your newly created shortcut on your desktop to your dock. It will show up with "?" as an icon.
4 - Right click new dock Icon and select icon settings
5 - In the icon settings pop up, ADD TO BEGGINING of the target box the following: shell:AppsFolder\
6 - Make sure that the rest of the APPID has not been altered
7 - Hit OK and you're done.
8 - You can change the Default Icon to your liking.


Works great with Windows 10 !!!!
