The problem with a UMPC is the limited screen size that makes it impossible or difficult to click icons on the quick launch toolbar. Most of the time, you have to zoom your face right into the screen just to see what you're clicking at.
There's a FREE solution to this problem, enter the Circle Dock. Developed by Eric Wong, the Circle Dock is a free Windows program that gives you instant access to commonly used programs right on your desktop with a cool look. It works perfectly well with normal laptops and desktops too!
What Circle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 7.6 Allows You to Do:
* Launch your programs from a circular dock. * Drag and drop your files, folders, and shortcuts onto a circular dock that you can resize. * Rotate the dock with either your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys. * Change the image shown for the icons and change the skins (compatible with icons and skins for Rocket Dock, Object Dock, etc.) * The dock appears where your mouse is by pressing a hotkey (default is F1) or your middle mouse button. * Tested on computers with multiple monitors, Windows XP/Vista, 32-bit & 64-bit, and requires only .Net Framework 2.0. * Automatically works on all Windows Vista computers and most Windows XP computers. * A new settings panel that allows you to customize many options. It updates your dock as you make changes. See it change in real time! No need to press an OK button. * Multi-language capable. Just translate the English.ini file to the language of your choice. * Change the image used for the dock icons with the easiest method out there: Just set the program to "Icon Replacement Mode" in the right-click menu of the centre icon and you can change all the icon images by just dragging and dropping new PNG images onto them! Huge time saver when you are customizing your dock! * You can now toggle the visibility of the dock by moving your mouse to any edge of your screen. By default, the left and right edges are used for toggling. No need to press a button! * Rotate the dock with your mouse wheel or arrow keys (customizable). * Click sensitivity adjustment for tablet users. * Reorder the dock items by draging and dropping them over each other. * Organize the dock items using dock folders. * By default, clicking on the centre button does not open the start menu. You can enable this in the settings panel.
Circle Dock System Requirements:
* Windows XP or Vista (32 or 64 bit) * .NET Framework 2.0 or higher.
