I’m not a Mac user, but OSX has a lot of nice features – several of which have been translated into Windows shell enhancements. I’ve been using the Stacks docklet in RocketDock for quite a while. It’s a very handy way to navigate frequently accessed folders.

If you’re not a fan of dock applications, but you’d still like to add stacks to your taskbar, just download StandaloneStack. It’s a small executable that launches either grid (pictured) or fan style stacks.

Settings are written to a .ini file and you can create as many stacks as you like. To call a specific one, create a shortcut to the standalonestack.exe and add its name after the closing quote. The developer’s home page has more detailed instructions on how to get things going.

The stack consumes about 7mb of memory while open, but it closes the instant you click an icon or the window loses focus. It’s a free download for Windows only and worked nicely on my XP and Vista Ultimate x64 installs.
