Mouser,  I too thank you for this nifty app.  I look forward to the persistent setting fix.

I am definitely not complaining, really, it's not a big deal... I just thought you may want to know I discovered a conflict with Power DVD.  It would not display the video until I closed DC.  I do not use it that much, and now that I know I can simply trade off apps.

Thanks again.... OldLincoln

Hello from France !

Is there any way to save settings ?
Every time windows starts, I had to reenter my desktop coral settings.

My settings are : Bottom, 1280, 50, no background, transparent.

Thanks for your help.

bonjour ghenarys!

your problem is quite a common one for which mouser (the author) has promised to fix in the next version but in the meantime, you can do the following:

• start the program
• make the changes/configuration settings
• exit the program manually and start again.

@maxxwizard

You should really block access to "Index of /matt" (google for disable directory browsing).

Am I the only one who have this problem:

From time to time good part of my desktop will just... well be taken. I don't know how to explain, so look at the pic:

You see? Left part of the screen is missing, when I maximize window they go only as far as Total Commander is now.

This will go back to normal if I log off and log in again.
Also I can exit Corral Desktop and start it again, and it will not fix anythin, as you can see, it is even active now on the right side of the first monitor.

that's strange.
can you try this -- the next time that happens, undock and then re-dock Desktop Coral, and see if that fixes it.
if so, then at least it's a clue to me about what's going on, and i could at the minimum offer a quick workaround command in the Desktop Coral menu that would fixup the situation.

I tried that but nothing. Nothing will work except full win restart or loging off and than logging in. I even tried restarting explorer but no avail.

ive seen this happen before but it's always fixed by toggling desktop coral between docking and floating mode..
the space is the size of your normal dock right?

I take it that, based on the picture you posted, you are using a dual-monitor setup?

Can I make the humble suggestion that this project be called simply "Coral" instead of "Desktop Coral?" Every time I see it, the grammarian in me wants to march down to your home with a ruler and smack you on the knuckles. At this point, I realize that the software will not adopt "corral" as part of its name, so why not stick with Coral, and drop the "Desktop"?
