Yeah, that would be good to know, I have an x86 tablet I installed the Win 8 DP on & hopefully will install the CP on, & it would work great for it! It'd be like an iPad! xD


Yes, You can also disabled Icons instant drag moving in XLaunchpad's Setting, So that you can touch more friendly

This is an impressive work, indeed very good program, I'm testing it right now to see whether if I replace rocketdock or not, so far so good.

A few bugs though:

Deleting a folder for some reason didn't worked until I put a shortcut inside, then the folder magically disappeared.

I don't know if bug or not:

Changing the number of rows and the margins reset the icons... I needed to rearrange them again.

A few suggestions:

1.- Recycle bin full indicator
2.- Recycle bin option to "empty recycle bin"

That's all, that's far more than enough for me :D please keep it updated!

If I had a Win7 tablet, this would 100% be on it.

Very nice and responsive.Only thing i would prefer different is an icon set that would look more like windows instead of OSX since the application itself is for windows.

Looks like a blatant ripoff of WinLaunch to me :angry:


Sorry? Ripoff of whogivesaf**k ? No offence, but it's fair game here dude ... Launchpad is the one being ripped off. WinLaunch doesn't have some kind of moral standpoint to complain if their stuff gets done by someone else. For all you knew the developer may had never seen WinLaunch, since Launchpad is the one he's looking at.

Dam this is mean work, liking this alot. great work. One thing, if i have web browser open, and i press F12 i get the web browser trying to show me HTML Code, i know i can change this.


Sorted, nice to see hot corners. Have mine set-up to top left side, great work!

BUG:

I notice that when i need to do something as admin, and i get UAC showing, after click yes i get the xLauchpad showing straight after.

Forgive me if I'm wrong but would adjust icons size to large and spacing them equally also create this?!

You can adjust icons size and spacing by XLaunchpad's settings

I think his point was that, if you didn't use XLaunchpad, you could create a similar effect just by putting the icons on to your desktop, increasing the size of the icons and spacing them evenly. However, in defence of this application it appears that XLaunchpad could be minimised, thereby hiding the icons that appear, and it also looks like you have an option for folders which couldn't be achieved in the same way without this application (or a variation of it).

I've never used the Launchpad on my Mac. I never understood the need for it given that I have the dock for accessing my regularly used programs, so I can't see myself using this either.

With that said, looking at the screenshots it looks good and other people seem to be impressed, so good job. (Y)
