Tweaking the Appearence of your Desktop

Configuring the Dock

Now you can configure your dock. ObjectDock has so many options that its mostly your own choice but I'll go through what I choose.

right click in a space on the dock and choose "Dock Settings"

ObjectDock Options

Then you can configure the main appearence options. I like the dock on the top of the screen in the centre with a brushed metal effect and not too big. Also a bit of transparency is nice:

Settings 1

Also its worth taking a look at the options on performance. I find that "Smooth and Quick works well for me, as well as "re-show smoothly". also if you so wish, tick the "Load ObjectDock at startup" option.

I also like to add seperators to make my clickable icons into groups for ease of use:

Adding seperaters

Now the docks ready for some icons and adding your own style to your dock...
