Editors' Review


ObjectDock gives you the look and functionality of a Mac interface right on your Windows computer by adding a customizable dock at the bottom of the screen. From here, you can quickly open important programs, and you can even tell the program to mimic the mouse-over zoom effect found on a Mac.


Configurable and customizable: The initial Dock this app creates contains some basic programs and an icon for the Windows Start Menu. But through the Settings Menu, you can customize the Dock to display whatever programs you want. And you can even specify whether you want all open programs to show up there or not.

Two-part interface: In addition to the Dock at the bottom of the screen, this app also creates a tabbed interface that you can access by clicking on a small bar at the top of the screen. Here you'll find the Settings Menu, and you can also access all of your other programs, especially if you chose to eliminate the Windows Toolbar when you set up the app.


One size: The icons in the Dock are only one size, and they are rather large. Depending on the size of your screen, this may mean that they interfere with what you're trying to do in other programs from time to time.

Variable responsiveness: Programs didn't always open the first time we tried to click on them in the dock. Although they did always open eventually, it sometimes took multiple attempts.

Bottom Line

ObjectDock is a quick and easy way to give your Windows computer a Mac look. It offers lots of options for customization, which means you can set it up in a way that best suits your needs. While there are some stylistic and performance issues that you may not want to put up with, you can try the app out for free for 30 days to decide if it's worth spending $9.99 to purchase.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of ObjectDock 2.20.

"Conflicts with USB SAFELY REMOVE seems to "lock" drives"

February 16, 2015  |  By craig.knapp1

 |  Version: ObjectDock 2.20


18FEB2015..I had used Object Dock for about a year. It replaced and improved the look of the Windoze Taskbar.


I always found that Object Dock conflicted with USB SAFELY REMOVE (which allows one to properly "stop" USB drives before disconnecting them from the computer). USB SAFELY REMOVE always reported that OBJECT DOCK had any USB Drive I was attempting to eject "locked", even when selecting FORCE STOP, it could not kill Object Dock.

About a month ago I tried WinStep's Nexus Dock and found that USB SAFELY REMOVE now allows me to eject USB drives with no issues, and my system seems to run faster.

System: Win7, 32Bit, 4GB RAM, 2x 2TB HD, video card 1GB RAM, Quad-core, desktop system.


Though nice looking, the conflicts with USB SAFELY REMOVE and appearing to be resource intensive, I have switched to WinStep's Nexus Dock.

No XP support


Can't create categories


Rotten company. I payed for the pro version. I use XP. And after that, they dropped XP support. Really. Would it be so hard to add XP support.
