Editors' Review

The Winstep Nexus Dock attempts to provide you with a smooth, quick, and intuitive way to access your most commonly utilized items.

Pros

Mac-like environment: Winstep Nexus Dock allows you the customization of OS X without the constraints of a Mac environment.

Customizable options: The Winstep Nexus Dock gives you what amounts to complete control over what you want to place in your dock, so you can create a totally personalized dock for your desktop.

Animation and graphics: This is a great looking piece of software, with charming little animations and graphics that are reminiscent of the best docks in the business.

Cons

Free version limitations: The only real drawback is that the free version is so much more limited than the paid, "Ultimate" version. The ability to have nested docks would be especially welcome in the free option.

Bottom Line

If you're forever married to Windows but have admired the docks of other operating systems, then the Nexus Dock might be for you. Even if those other docks haven't caught your eye, this one is completely customizable, so it's worth trying out to see if you can create a dock that works for you.

"I like it much better than Object Dock"

February 16, 2015  |  By craig.knapp1

 |  Version: Winstep Nexus Dock 14.11

Pros

18FEB2015. I like WinStep Nexus Dock better than Stardock's Object Dock.

First, Object Dock was conflicting with USB SAFELY REMOVE, which reported that Object Dock had USB drive's "locked down", even FORCED STOP could not "unlock" Object Dock from drives which I was attempt to eject (disconnect from the computer, safely parking the drive heads.).

Secondly, on my Win7 32Bit, 4GB RAM, 2x 2TB HD, 1GB Video RAM system, WinStep Nexus Dock seems to use less resources than Object Dock.

Cons

None. None. (sorry for the repetition, was forced to enter 10 characters in this block).

Summary

Nexus is a great replacement for the Windoze Taskbar, enhances the look considerably, and seems to go easy on system resources.

"Very nice launcher - Free version"

December 28, 2014  |  By Arafurian01

 |  Version: Winstep Nexus Dock 14.11

Pros

Many different attractive graphical designs; many options for customising; some useful widgits included. Runs without the slightest sign of instability.

Cons

Figuring out all the customisable choices is a bit of a nightmare; there are just so many options, and some of them are a bit obscure. So it took me quite a while - an hour or more - of trial and error before I could get it to work the way I wanted. (Still, I shouldn't complain too much; at least it finally gave me what I wanted!)

Summary

I have Win8.1, with a very large number of apps (many hundreds) installed. About 50 of these apps, I use often, but the remainder only infrequently. My major challenges are, firstly, remembering which app is best for which job; and, secondly, finding ways of conveniently accessing them. For this reason, I use a variety of launchers, including Windows's built-in Taskbar's Toolbars, MadAppLauncher and a couple of home-brewed launchers (based on CherryTree hierarchical database) for the more obscure apps. The Nexus dock will fit nicely into this mix.
