    Default How to Pin RocketDock to Desktop?

    In the settings I have Rocketdock as Always on bottom. But when I press "show desktop", rocket dock is gone. I have to max and min a window to get it to show again. Is there a way to pin it to desktop, so 'show desktop' command won't affect it?

    Thanks

    hmmm why use rocketdock? it slows down your comp... if you want to minimize, try winkey + M to minimize all windows... i dont know if this will minimize rocketdock too

    rocketdock uses very little cpu, actually, it uses almost none. so :P to you plsdonotbug

    There are settings in rocketdock to have it always at the bottom, and when you mouse over it, it pops up.

    check around the behavior tab in the dock settings and you should find that option.

    why not, its a useful command. Rocketdock still shouldn't be doing that.

    My desktop looks the same, whether shown or not: All black and empty.

    Aside from the fact that you didn't answer the OP's question, this is inaccurate information.

    I like to switch right to the next window, hence I never use show desktop.

    A workaround is to use Windows+M instead of Windows+D. Then the dock will stay.

    Yeah, I don't like show desktop. It hides my sidebar gadgets too.

    Instead I use Win-M to minimize all windows and Win-shift-M to restore them. This keeps both RocketDock and the Sidebar gadgets visible.

    Also, in RocketDock, if you select "Popup on mouseover", then you can just move your mouse over where the dock is hidden, and hold it there a second, and it'll pop to the front. (I have layering set to "Normal" though... don't know if it works when set to "Always on bottom"... but it might.)
