Hi,

at first, the dock is very nice and for me ends a long search for a good dock. I bought immediately the Ultimate edition :) ... thanks good work.

But I have one little thing I think its good to change.

When a application (e.g. Google Chrome) is started from the dock, the process will start directly under the "Nexus-Ultimate.exe" process.
Not like other processes under the "explorer.exe".
(see: "Process Start.PNG")

Is it possible to start the application directly under the "explorer.exe" like the start from the normal Windows start menu?

The reason is the "mind about security" and stability. Because of, when the "Nexus Ultimate.exe" is going crashed all applications will go down with the Nexus bar.

I think this is more a point for the wishlist for the next version :).

best regards
Moe

That is not true *at all*.

First, launching applications from Nexus has no security implications whatsoever provided Nexus is not running with elevated privileges (and it will complain immediately on startup if so).

Second, Nexus crashing also has no effect whatsoever on the processes that were launched through it. Think about it: why should it? They are all independent processes.

Third, the other processes appear under Explorer.exe for the very simple reason that they were launched by... Explorer itself. When Nexus is doing the launching, they will appear under Nexus. This has no practical effect at all.
