sorry for the late reply, i forgot it.

I think it is not wise to launch LBC in different modes.
Just an another button while in non-docked mode would be nice: the [X]-button could close LBC completely (my wish),
and an new to add [_] minimize-button could do what the [X]-button does right now: minimize to tray.
And ESC-key to remove LBC from memory as addition option would be nifty too.
(i want to drop my "launchTool-and-close" request now, i think i didn't really need this)
M> are you planning on actually having it docked to the screen with this configuration?
No, not docking, just start LBC and pop-up an dialog - chose an item, or two or three - close LBC.
i can even imaging to decide now-or-then to dock LBC for an moment till i want to launch the next tool.... and close LBC then (via context menu).
Wouldn't be that nifty to decide at start-time if i want to dock... or just pick an item and close LBC.
But that is only an "nice to have"... not an really request.
I want to use LBC on an USB-Stick --- e.g. from an button on an file manager menu-bar.
I feed LBC with all my tools and point to folders with an lot of executables, like Sysinternals or NirSoft tools.
Like PStart-Tool or like that does (that gives an other idea... i will open an new post for that)
So i plan for this
issue not to let LBC run the whole day and let the tray-icon wait for me.
M> like what you would really want is to show a menu or a pop-up square box of icons or something,
M> centered on the screen or at mouse.
"centered on the screen" would be enough for my habit of use.
Thanks for the "open ear".
