Hello everyone, I'm new here and wanted to ask a question before i purchase this software.
At present i am using ObjectDock software but it is so buggy with windows 10 as it slows down to a halt more or less until i reboot my PC.
I Want to know if i can use the same stacking addon (or very similar) as i do with objectdock with each exe file shortcut without having them on my desktop (see image) I like the fact that it hides just like object dock and am hoping it doesnt have the same win10 bug, Which is extremely annoying to say the least.
I have sent winstep 3 emails but have not had a response from them, i cant seem to find them anywhere on social media such as Twitter or Facebook so i have created an account here.
Any help would be appreciated.

'Mr. Winstep' Jorge is very busy at the moment it seems - new section to the web site under construction, new computer system, and the next update as well, I would presume. But I'm sure he'll get back to you as soon as he can.

'Grid Stacks' are a recently added feature for Winstep Xtreme and NeXus Ultimate, with much more functionality than the Obj. Dock equivalent. If you go the Winstep 'Products' page and follow the link for 'Learn more' under Xtreme or Nexus Ultimate, then scroll down a bit below the comparison table, you'll come to a description and screen grab of 'Grid Stacks'. This should probably give you enough info to go on. :)

NB - I'm not affiliated with Winstep in any way, just a long time user. :)

Thank You nexter, That is just what i was looking for. I have installed the ultimate version and set it up as i like it but i just cannot seem where to change the list to grid. as you can see i have it as list. i have been all around the apps settings but i think i must be missing something because i can't find the "grid" settings. Any info would be great.

Dean, that seems to be the free version of Nexus, NOT Nexus Ultimate (you must purchase Nexus Ultimate first to be able to run it).

The free version of Nexus does NOT support Grid Stacks, only Nexus Ultimate and Winstep Xtreme.

OK, Been using it for a couple of weeks now and it seems to be doing what it says on the tin :-) Love the Grid function on it. So many options to play about with. Thanks for your help getting me to how i want it :-)

Dean, I assume you installed a trial of Winstep Xtreme since you can't get a trial of Nexus Ultimate, and because I can't find your email address in our registrations database I also assume you haven't purchased it yet.

If so, there is a Winstep Xtreme promotion going on today, you might want to take advantage of that. :)

It might be registered with my Paypal account (different email) I ordered on 14th jan and the email attachment is a Nexus wsxkey which i used to register the software. email used is like this deanosxxxxxxx@x dot co dot uk. Let me know if you find me on your system. I don't want to put my full email on here public :-)

I'm new too. Just signed up for the forum today. :)

I just got a new rig, and went from Win 7 to Win 10. Been a long time user of Object Dock. But like you, OD just wasn't so hot on Win 10, so that's when I discovered Winstep. I think you'll find Winstep to be very satisfying. I've been using it for about 3 weeks and wish I had found it sooner. Excellent program! I'm all in!
