Dock Star overview

Cluttered Desktop? Put everything in a dock! Dock Star is a macOS app that allows you to create multiple docks anywhere on your Desktop. Arrange, launch, and preview apps, files, Web links, images, and Shortcuts. Turn tedious folder and drive navigation into a single smooth dropdown experience. Visually organize project files by dragging and dropping and assigning colors.

Create auto-hiding panels of any size to control your smart home or lists to prioritize, preview, and manage files and Web links. Create framed images that can be displayed in any area of any display. Or just use it as a copy of the macOS dock on any side of your screen (even the top), with support for multiple rows and columns and indicators for open applications.

Customize the style and behavior of any dock to blend in with your environment and workflow. Use it to create large link and app launchers for kids, or palettes of common work tasks for your colleagues. Make your Mac work for you!

Yes, this is how we want the MacOS to customize and function! I used ʻDrag Thingʻ for a decade and Dock Star is the improved successor in the same spirit and brilliance. Makes one wonder why this isnʻt endemic to the MacOS? Anyway— need now resolved.💯

This is literally the single most useful app on my Mac. As the editor of a publication, I often need quick access to dozens of different files, apps and links. The native MacOS dock is somewhat useful, but it pales in comparison to the flexibility and functionality of Dock Star. It's basically a very sophisticated dock with aliases to all your important files so that you don't have to open nests of windows. For Mac users who remember an now-extinct app called DragThing, Dock Star does everything DragThing did and more, with a much more customizable and intuitive interface that doesn't intrude on your desktop real estate. Unlike the OS Dock, you can place multiple docks anywhere on your desktop, set the color, translucency, size, number of columns, rows and layers and many other parameters. It makes my workflow orders of magnitude more efficient than with the OS Dock or any other tabbed launcher I've used. Very grateful to the developer for resurrecting and improving on DragThing--for those who used that app, its demise was a tragedy. I cannot recommend this app enough.
