In MetaDock, “workspaces” are your personalized layouts that you can save and revisit anytime. They’re also shareable, meaning you can exchange layouts with others. Importantly, these workspaces save your layout across multiple instances, which can span across several monitors. This ensures a consistent and personalized user experience, no matter how complex your setup is.

The panic button is a quick escape feature that lets you instantly hide all your active windows when you need to. Just press F2 to activate it.

The auto-refreshing windows feature in MetaDock is designed to automatically reload your browser windows at intervals you set. This means your websites can refresh themselves every few seconds, minutes, or up to an hour, depending on your preference. It’s a handy feature for keeping your content up-to-date without manual intervention.

Docking a window in MetaDock is a straightforward process. You simply need to drag a window by its title bar, and you’ll see two types of docking guides appear: relative and absolute. Relative docking guides allow you to dock the window in relation to an existing window. You’ll see five quadrants: top, left, right, bottom, and center. If you drag the window to the top, left, right, or bottom quadrant, it will take up half the space of the existing window in that direction. If you drag it to the center, it will be tabbed inside the existing docked window. Absolute docking guides, on the other hand, allow you to dock the window in relation to the entire layout. You’ll see four guides: top, bottom, left, and right. If you drag the window to one of these guides, it will take up the corresponding quadrant of the entire interface. This system gives you a high level of control over your layout and allows you to organize your windows in the way that works best for you.

Floating windows in MetaDock are windows that can move outside of MetaDock. They can be minimized, go full screen, or adjusted as needed. This gives you flexibility in how you manage your windows.

The comparison tool in MetaDock is a powerful feature that allows you to conduct a single search query across multiple platforms simultaneously. For instance, if you’re looking for a PS5 controller, you can input your search query and the tool will open separate browser windows for Google, Amazon, and BestBuy, each displaying the search results for a PS5 controller. This not only saves time but also allows you to easily compare offerings across different platforms. The same search engines available in the comparison tool can also be accessed directly from the URL bar.

Having multiple instances of MetaDock means you can run several separate versions of the program at the same time. Think of it like having multiple desks in an office, each with its own set of tools and tasks. Each instance operates independently, so you can have different auto-saving layouts in each one. This is especially useful if you’re working on different projects or tasks and want to keep them separate and organized.
