Have Multiple Docks in Mac OS X with DockFun
Ever wished you could have multiple Mac OS X Docks at the same time? Maybe you want one at the left and right and bottom of your screen? Then DockFun is for you for those of you who’ve wished you could have more than one Dock in Mac OS X.
The other day I became annoyed with how many icons I was starting to accumulate in my Mac OS X Dock (the Application Launcher we pretty much all rely on). I thought to myself, geez it would be really handy to be able to switch between a couple of predefined Docks. A few googles later and I stumbled upon a killer-app, DockFun!
DockFun does exactly what I was looking for. I can open up the DockFun! configuration window, set up a Dock for web development, set up a dock for every day use, or a “default dock” and another one for programming needs. A well written, well documented piece of software, DockFun! has quickly become a staple when it comes to using my Mac.
For a brief, yet informative video tutorial (I love those things) on how it works, head on over to Donelleschi Software’s DockFun! page and check it out.
In less than 5 minutes, I am willing to bet you will have the basics to navigating multiple docks down pat.
DockFun works with both PowerPC and Intel Macs running Mac OS X, with multiple versions available depending on your system software version.
