7stacks Does OS X Stacks In Windows 7 Style

Windows only: Application launcher 7stacks adds the Stacks functionality of Mac's OS X to Windows 7, including Aero transparency effects that blend into your taskbar perfectly.

To create your own stacks, launch the application, pick a folder and the type of launcher you want, create a shortcut on the desktop, and then right-click the shortcut and pin it to the taskbar. You can pin up to 10 shortcuts onto the taskbar this way, and you can choose between Menu, Grid, or Stacks (pictured). You don't have all of the functionality that the latest version of StandaloneStack gives you, but it blends into the desktop really well with the Aero transparency effects, making it well worth a look for anybody using Windows 7.

7stacks is a free download for Windows 7 only. For more, check out how StandaloneStack is an awesome file-browsing widget, or out other favourite methods of consolidating taskbar launchers with Jumplist and switching folders with Folder Menu.

    @BraytonAK: you have a very good tip. That Links toolbar seems to have the stack feature. But why can't the other toolbars do this? I'd like to be able to do this with a few toolbars.


    7stacks is nice but I'm actually liking this launcher: http://programming-designs.com/2009/08/windows-7-application-launcher-7apl/

    It supports hot keys and profiles along with jumplist support.
