The finder program wont work on my computer. Can it run on vista?

GreatSage (author)GreatSage2009-08-10

Ok, nvm. I found another way to make a finder.

RKlauncher is much better than rocket dock, and it comes with a lot of leopard themed reflective icons, so the dock looks much more realistic.

I like the settings in rocket dock better than RKlauncher, and you can always download icons off the internet. this is rocket dock with with some new icons and a new theme

ben_k (author)steven932009-03-13

you can use icons, themes, and docklets you download for rocket dock with any dock application. I know, because I've used and made themes that work on both.

steven93 (author)ben_k2009-03-13

I know

Also, there is leftsider, which puts the close, minimize, and maximize buttons on the left side of the window, like in macs

steven93 (author)ben_k2009-03-13

It looks nice, but it has issues, if you really want a good leftsider use true transparency with the leopardxp theme you can find them here

Looks like if you just type in the main URL, then you can select each item for download. You may want to update your instructable so more people like me don't get confused. :)
