Its called "Window Docker", its my very first project I made in visual C#. The software is a simple program that docks most not all applications. For example, notepad, command prompt and other things you could try. It docks the programs inside the software. The Software is set to be topmost meaning it will stay in front of all windows or at least most of them. The idea is to be able to use multiple programs without having to tab and lose focus on what you are doing, like video games, web browsers and such.

Please leave feedback, this information is vital to me as a beginner, the only way I can improve myself is by your comments. For more information on what kind of feedback I'm looking for please refer to the readme file.
I will appreciate and take in consideration on any comments you leave me!
How can I put this so as not to dampen your enthusiasm? While I certainly appreciate your enthusiasm in coming here and posting this, it's unlikely that you are going to get a positive reaction to your posting this here - for a start, we don't know you so we aren't likely to want to download your code from a site like dropbox. Secondly, there's a whole article submission thing here where you could post your code, along with an explanation, and you'll get a whole hunk of comments there.
If I were you, I'd create an article. I hope this doesn't dampen your enthusiasm.

Actually I agree with Pete. Your enthusiasim is great. And I am pretty sure you could use that enthusiasm to write a great article about what you made! It sounds pretty good, but this is not the place to ask for help or opinions. An article on the other hand will make you review your code, look up certain stuff you weren't sure about (you can ask some specific questions in the QA section on CodeProject) and then, when you've written everything down, you'll get comments and reviews from people. Like you I feel that I can grow by other peoples comments and help, so I've written a few articles myself. I've learned so much from every article! I'm currently working on one and once again I've learned plenty of new stuff. Going to learn even more in the further writing process and when the article is released (in a couple or so weeks I hope).
I used to travel 16 miles to work, took about 90 minutes by car.
Then for 6 wonderful years it took me less than 10 minutes to do 5 miles down country lanes.
Now have to do 13 miles and takes about 40 minutes by car.
It is crap, I find audio books are the best thing to listen to, something that can draw the mind in. Also helps to turn the mind off work so I get home able to relax rather than with stuff buzzing around.
Every man can tell how many goats or sheep he possesses, but not how many friends.
depends on what city and if where you live now suits - if where you live is great and has everything you need/want, then that may be a price to pay - we in Sydney have people who commute for 1.5 hours each way - their trade-off is that they life on big semi-rural blocks out by the mountains or north/south in coastal towns - so for them, its worth it
- really, no one can answer that question in entirety for you
I do 40 miles each way a working day which takes average of 1hr (depending on the roads 70 minuites) cant find anything closer for reasonable money

Currently (until I get a car) I have to travel 70 mins by train and walking between the stations, followed by a 30-40 minute bicycle ride. I've gotten used to it now but I can't wait to get an extra 2.5 hours of each day back when I get a car.
At least the trains I get on are not crowded so there's space for my bike, and I have somewhere to eat some breakfast (I can never really eat when I first wake up).
Stop your bitching, I used to do 80km EACH way 5 days a week, 4 hours commute added to the working day. I would leave at 5am just to beat the traffic. You young wipper snappers get it too easy these days.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
When i were a lad we had miles not new fangled kilometewotsits, and we didnt commute - no sir, we RAN
on our bloodied stumps - it were so far we'd have to leave 2 hours before we went to bed.
Get to work, do a days work in half the time before we had to turn around and crawl back home because we were that exhausted.
You tell kids these days and they'll not believe you.
