Win8 Consumer preview charmsbar for XP Vista Win7 by PeterRollar Win8 Consumer preview charmsbar for XP Vista Win7 by PeterRollar
File contains two Rocketdock skins. A transparent and a black one.
You can get Rocketdock for free hererocketdock.com/

How to use:

Best way to understand how this works: Read this easy to understand article on AskVGwww.askvg.com/download-rocketd…

Short version:
Download and install Rocketdock.
Unzip this deviation and place the Folder "Transparent charmbar" in the skins folder of RD
Replace the folder "Icons" with the one of this deviation
Place the settings. ini and the Startmenu.exe in the main folder of RD as shown in the picture above.
"Settings" is the black bar. If you wanna use the transparent bar, rename the settings. ini from settingstransparent to settings.
Bar appears when you mouseover the right border of your screen.

Caution:If you are using 64-bit Windows Rocketdock is stored inC:\Program Files (x86)\RocketDock\ So you have to manually edit the path to the startmenu.exe. Simply rightclick on the start icon to open it's options menu. Navigate to the startmenu.exe and you are done.

If you like it, give it a try.:)

Thanx for your nice offer.But i cannot replace anything of this deviation, because DA doesn't allow the upload of exe files anymore.
These details can easily be edited by the users themselves if they have a prob with it.:)

How do you get that black bar to go over the whole side of your screen?
Mine only fills the background of the icons and not the whole side :(

And where can you download the stuff you have in the last screen?

Are you kidding? Moving the mousepointer over a specific area is mouseover.

You already use a lot of my stuff without asking.And i think you haven't asked the other ones too. Why don't you guys do something yourself instead of collecting others work and throw it in an installer?

make the seperators transparent so you can put gaps between icons.

No need for this. It can easily be done using DesktopX or Avedesk. Only i'm low on motivation and time atm.

you know your startscreen (avedesk)? it doesn't work well on my computer ( i use avedesk 1.4), all the widgets overlap each other and the scrollbar doesn't work.

The startscreen works fine, also on your system. Only it seems you don't know how to use it. There are two screens. You can easilay switch between them by mouseover the "Start" text or the userpicture. You have loaded both screens at the same time. Move your mouse to one of the two options and your problem is solved in one second.
The scrollbars are fake because you don' t need them because of the switches.

transparent should be better. it is not as thick as the opaque one. you know what i mean? like the real one is not as thick.
