Improvement Proposal: Show Mac OS X dock when mouse cursor reaches bottom border

Reported by: harald_nuernberg Owned by:
Priority: trivial Component: GUI
Version: VirtualBox 2.1.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Mac OS X


Only improvement proposal: Host: Mac OS X. Guest: E.g. Windows or Linux

Guest window is maximized (full screen mode). Today when I move the mouse cursor on the top border, the Apple menu bar is shown. This very practical e.g. to choose another space of the host.

However, when I move to bottom border I would like to see the dock of the host to select easily a application of the host. This might be enabled by setting in virtualbox. Today I have to go to upper border, select another space and then select in the other space a host application from the dock. This is not very comfortable.

But as stated this is only improvement proposal. Congratulation, you have done a very good job with Virtualbox.

Best regards from Germany.

This would be nice! In mine, the dock does appear when I move the mouse into the upper menu, but it does not persist once I move out.

And though I agree an accessible dock would be a real boon, I also agree that Virtualbox is very impressive as it stands. Bravo!

Met vriendelijke groeten
