    So, I need a Kingdom Hearts Wallpaper and I looked at some but none I really like. And a Rocketdock skin that will go with it. And somehow, I can't seem to remove rocketdock while I'm using applications. I'm also having trouble finding good icon sets and themes. Oh and how do you resize rocketdock?

    Any help would appreciated.

    Resizing rocketdock is inside of the "Dock Settings".

    You also definitely want to use the Stack Docklet (found on their site or google)


    To remove it when you're using applications (fullscreen apps?) it should be automatically doing this, otherwise go to Settings->Position->Layering->Normal

    I prefer Always On Top and leaving it Hidden, it should detect and hide for fullscreen apps, never had problems with it.


    I personally stopped using Rocketdock along time ago and would highly suggest XWindowsDock, works great, native-ly deals with stacks, has great STACK MODUS (MSPA joke), deals great with icons among other things, and works with literally any form of Windows from XP (prior to, but who uses anything else?) up to 7, and works 64 bit.

    Another thing you definitely want to try out if not keep is Rain-meter, which you might be using already? It basically makes your desktop interactive and has some godly skins on it, can keep track of themes, and with a plugin can also have different themes for different monitor resolutions (So you can have it change with your resolution if you plug in several monitors or change resolution often), also has NO problem with old fullscreen games that like to change resolution without asking.

    My desktop before Rainmeter/X Windows Dock got icons put on it: http://pyrofyr.com/random/hs/NDesk1.png

    After XWindowsDock got icons: http://pyrofyr.com/random/hs/ODesk1.jpg

    Now, I just downloaded Winamp and how do you place the thing on your desktop? Also, I downloaded Rainlendar and how do you show the clock? Another thing, how do you place stuff in stacks? It won't fin on rocketdock anymore so I need to use them.

    EDIT: I saw something called google desktop. Do I need to install that?

    i dont think rainmeter and rainlendar are the same things, rainlendar is just some cool looking calendar.
