I am trying LBC again - looking good
« on: December 09, 2010, 10:22:49 PM »
As an avid user of FARR and Screenshot Captor, I thought I would try LBC again.  I have tried it several times over the years but didn't like it.  I recently have given Rocket Dock a whirl but didn't like it so I uninstalled it.  So I figured I would give LBC a real chance this time.  And I am liking it really well!   :Thmbsup:  Congrats Mouse on another fine product!

But how do I move it to the side instead of the top.  If it try to move it by "toggle docking" then it is a small window and if I stretch it clear out from top to bottom it then covers my "start button".  Am I doing something wrong or maybe it needs a restart of the computer??

thanks!

music to my ears.

  • doesn't need a restart.
  • just toggle docking
  • then MOVE it to the top of screen, where it will dock and extend itself to full width.
  • then resize it vertically to the size you desire.

that is what I have tried.  But shouldn't it move the windows over so it doesn't sit on top of the open window?

other windows shouldnt open or maximize on top of it after its docked.. im not sure about existing windows.

hmmm.  maybe I need to close my window and reopen it.  I just kept waiting for it to adjust.  I will try that when I am on that computer this evening.
