Combination of ObjectDock plus 1.9 and RocketDock 1.3.5

I personally don't really like a standard icon placement in Windows Xp and other Windows. It is quite messy and not really cool :D So I decide to find a way to make my desktop clean and easy to handle with icons. After trying many softwares, I finally found the combination of softwares that really satisfy me. It is a combination of ObjectDock Plus 1.9 and RocketDock 1.3.5. RocketDock is a freeware but unfortunately ObjectDock Plus is not a freeware. But you can download ObjectDock standard version for free.

So below I created a video about the demo of them. I hope this will help gives you an idea on how to arrange your desktop icons and make your job with computer smoother and neater.

I love the top dock of ObjectDock Plus, great in icons arrangement. We can divide icons categories with the tab feature.

I use Stacks Docklet plugin in RocketDock that shows a Fan or a Grid stack when I click the icon in it. It is not just cool in appearance but make our job easier. To get the plugin, download it free at
