Editors' Review

SliderDock offers to help users organize and access several programs on the fly. With its smooth menu and its simplicity, SliderDock ensures that anyone can save time and effort by using it.

The program's interface is easy to operate since it only requires the most basic of mouse functions. In fact, it reminded us heavily of a Mac's lower scrolling mechanism, which brings program icons to the foreground. SliderDock appears as a little onscreen bubble that you drag your favorite program icons into. SliderDock simply creates a new shortcut for each program within the bubble, while the original icons stay in place. You simply double-click an icon in SliderDock, and the target program opens and functions just like it normally does. Once you've populated SliderDock with icons, you can scroll through all of your choices using your mouse wheel. SliderDock is sensitive to scrolling speed, and we soon felt in complete control. It's easy to move forward and backward within SliderDock. The program also helps save time with customizable hot keys. You can assign any of SliderDock's functions to a hotkey, which is a great advantage for operating in a hurry. SliderDock is sure to save time for anyone who must frequently shift from a program screen to the desktop to open more programs. SliderDock makes every effort to maximize your computer efficiency by saving you time and effort on the things you do most.

SliderDock is a free program. Its simple operation and timesaving functions earn our high recommendation.

"It is a nice way to use the desk top"

January 09, 2010

 |  Version: SliderDock R4

Pros

Everything works

Cons

No uninstall program - HELP

Summary

I only wish to evaluate it. I am not sure of the amount of resources it uses. There is no way that I can find to uninstall it. That is why I downgraded it.

"PLEASE READ: How to make it work"

December 31, 2009  |  By JohnnyTen

 |  Version: SliderDock R4

Pros

This is a fun menu bar ... definately not the run of the mill side bar.

Cons

I really can't think of any "Cons".

Summary

How to make this software work (From the author's site):

Important : without the .net 3.5sp1 framework, SliderDock will immediately close.
You can get the framework here:
http://www.microsoft.com/net/Download.aspx

Also, get the latest version (Version R10 as my visit to the site on 12/31/09):

http://sliderdock.wikidot.com/local--files/system:download/SliderDock%20R10%20setup.exe

The software home page:

Updated on Dec 31, 2009

New ver available (R10):

"great dock"

October 01, 2009  |  By slyfoxxofyls

 |  Version: SliderDock R4

Pros

the rotation makes it quick and easy to select an icon.
Different from the horizontal docks.
3D~ish look.

Cons

I found none

Summary

works well.
nice and quick to select an icon and isn't like any other docks.

For those that say it doesn't work, you need .net framework 3.5 to run it.

"Flat out didn't work"

August 08, 2009  |  By saintseminole

 |  Version: SliderDock R4

Pros

The only pro is that it sounded like a good idea.

Cons

Didn't work.

Summary

Software is useless if it doesn't work. This one never worked on Windows XP (tried two different PCs, each with different configuration.)
