Kwikstrip questions?

Post by XaviarCraig » Tue Aug 21, 2007 17:58

I have been using Kwikstrip as my default shell in windows and its working pretty good but there are a few questions I have about it.

Is it possible to make it so you can ALT+TAB to it?
Is it possible to make it always extended?
Is it possible to make it so you have multiple strips for say... different groups of programs?

Thank you for your time!

Now that I think of it...

1. You could set the KwikStrip to a hotkey to bring it to the front.
2. Uncheck the Auto Close Strip box in the settings and that should keep it open.
3. I actually have this set up - I have two seperate copies of KwikStrip with their own unique INI files and such. Only thing is, you have to keep them in different directories otherwise only one will run at a time.

The first two help, but the 3rd one is a problem because I cant get multiple programs to launch when windows starts and I cant move the strip(s) around so they are all on top of each other...

EDIT: Think I could add just another "shell" entry?

As far as I know, KwikStrip doesn't use registry entries. Or at least, it SHOULDN'T use the registry. To move the strips around, you can just go into the options and use the Y Offset feature to move it around, though it can only be docked on the right side of the screen.

I do not think it normally uses registry entries, but I use it in the shell entry in order to replace the crappy explorer shell Microsoft provides. My point being; There is only 1 shell entry and in order to have multiple kwikstrips load when windows starts I would need multiple shell entries.

Can't you just stick a shortcut to Kwikstrip in the StartUp folder in the Start menu, or does that depend on Explorer?

It doesn't. The registry is evil! (/me waves his fist at gConf)
