I don't get the context menu of an app when I right click on its icon in a dock.  Instead I get a generic objectdock contextmenu.  Is there a way around this?

One way is to right click on a dock and go to add then docklets. Click on fly out menu and that will show you whatever the folder has in it. All you need do is mouse over.

When I click on flyout menu I get an instance of 'My Computer' on the dock.  Still no context menu.

The normal taskbar for each program in Windows 7/8 has two "context menus"

--> Normal Right Click: Task List context menu.

--> Shift+Right Click: Window Control (Min/Max/Restore) Options.

 

Unfortunately, All of that is missing from ObjectDock* which means OD can't really replace the TaskBar

On top of that, there is the poor implementation of "SystemTray" in ObjectDock, which just gives you supersized icons instead of perhaps the normal small-icons with multiple rows.

 

* Likewise, Start8 appears to not support JumpLists either.

Shift-Right click to get the app's normal menu. I'd love to have this be the default, but I haven't found such an option (yet).
