MenuAndDockless 2.0

I’ve written a lot of Apps and tools – but MenuAndDockless is still my best creation simply because I can’t live without it and it’s so useful. MenuAndDockless 2.0 has been completely rewritten to better work in sandboxed environments and to take advantage of the Lion and Mountain Lion features. I’ve improved the saving and restoring of default window frames and you can now apply your own shortcuts (hotkeys) for all actions/menu items.

Still wondering what the heck MenuAndDockless is and why you should install it?myWPEditImage Image

Well, here you are:

Depending on your chosen settings, all native Cocoa Apps (even the Finder) can automatically start with the Menu and/or the Dock visible or hidden. They can start with a saved window frame (size and position) – so even when you’ve moved the windows to a position you usually don’t use and then closed the App, the next time you start the App, your desired default frame will be restored.

MenuAndDockless can save and restore those frames for different display setups – meaning the annoying re-organizing of windows at work and at home is now a piece of cake.

You can also use MenuAndDockless to ‘arrange’ windows on the fly by either using the menu item, or your own applied shortcut, making them float or enter a fullscreen mode that doesn’t automatically create its own Space – which means, drag-and-drop and Expose will still work and there’s lots more you can do with MAD…

Seriously, I can’t understand how people can live and work without MenuAndDockless :–))

MenuAndDockless is free and works on every Mac running Snow Leopard and above and itself isn’t really a hack – it’s just more of an addition and will not cause any trouble in native Apps or use additional system resources.
