Click center button to show bg
« on: November 19, 2009, 09:16:51 AM »
Hey, i found this program after watching this video and googling...
http://www.youtube.c...ture=player_embedded

the way his is set up is awesome. how did he do it?

ive got my dock locked to the center of my desktop, but is there a way to set it up so when i roll over the middle of my desktop it shows/hides the dock? (as opposed to just the default left or right show/hide function?)

you could lock it at any place, show / hide it by click middle mouse button.

hey thanks for the reply, that was quick!
im using it on a laptop so ive only got right and left click and keyboard hotkeys just arent very intuative to use. Seems like a pretty simple function, the button can activate the start menu on click but it'd be nice if it could toggle the bg instead! thanks anyway

bg = background = Desktop ?

If yes, you could add a item called "Show Desktop", same one used in the [Quick Launch], I hope it's little helpful.

That's great software. I love it too.

Simply set the Dock to autohide (on the Settings -> Visibility Tab) and when you want to hide Circle Dock, move your mouse off its background and it will disappear.

Incidentally many laptops' trackbar buttons are configured such that pressing both buttons at the same time is the same as a middle button click.
