    Fumbling through the Start Menu or mountains of icons on your desktop is never ideal when trying to locate the shortcut for your favorite apps. This frustration is only compounded when trying to do so when attempting to bring something up for the student that is hovering over your shoulder. Times like this have made me wish for the sleek dock functionality found on a Mac.

    Rocketdock solves this. This free application places a very aesthetically pleasing doc to your Windows OS that not only boasts the ability to quickly house icons for your favorite applications, but also can be extremely customizable, placed where you want it, and even autohide itself so it stays out of the way until you need it. Sound nice? Here is a more complete list of functions from their website.
