Default Program, Dont know what it would be called, I can describe it though

Hey, Im making yet another thread lol

I was leaning back in my chair, looking at my buddylist thinking

"Wouldnt it be cool, if there was some sort of thing, like thin bar at the top of the screen You could drag all your windows over it and they would act like theyre minimized, but when you hover over them they would open as if you clicked on them at the bottom"


It would be like windows start bar, but only dealing with open windows, and only the ones you drag over it

You hover over them to make them appear, and click to make them stay after you move the mouse away

Sort of like a Window Manager, but not you know what i mean?

Is there a program like this available? if not how would i go about creating one

Yes you should get Object Dock
It kind of resembles a second windows toolbar, good if you would like to place shortcuts, you can add almost anything that you want to the docklets which is extremely handy

I am thinking Object Dock would be the closest to what you are saying.
You can practically not have an icons or the taskbar.
