RK Launcher: One of The Best Free Dock Utility for Windows

RK Launcher is a free dock utility for Windows users. It provides a dock bar at the bottom of the screen that can be used to quickly launch your favorite program shortcuts. You can change the dock position and can move it to top, left or right.

It also comes with support for themes, PNG images and ICO files and with cool animations. RK Launcher can also be used as Windows Taskbar replacement.

Feature List:

Zooming: When the mouse is moved over the dock, all the icons will automatically grow: this is called zooming. The advantage of zooming is that the user will be able to have a very small strip of shortcuts that virtually take no precious screen space. Only when interaction with RK Launcher is required, the shortcut bar will automatically zoom in to allow the user to pick the icon he wants.

Taskbar: Minimized windows will normally be shown on the Windows Taskbar. RK Launcher provides an eye-pleasing replacement for the taskbar: whenever a window is minimized, it will automatically be placed on the shortcuts bar and will be represented by a small image of the contents of this window. This way, the user will quickly see which windows are minimized.

New Applications: It's always hard to track newly installed applications: where did they go? To solve this problem, RK Launcher will automatically place a shortcut on the launcher when an application is started for the first time.

Customization: All parts of RK Launcher can be fully customized. From the number of icons that gets zoomed on mouseover to the background and icons; the user can set it all as he likes. With support for themes, users can exchange their favorite looks and change the look of the launcher with one click.
