Windows 7: How to put spaces in your Taskbar (to sort)

How to put spaces in your Taskbar (to sort)

I hate cluttered desktops, and the taskbar is no exception. It's allowed to have icons though- as long as their sorted. I created some blank spacers to use for the taskbar on Windows 7, and decided to share them with you. This is the easiest way to add spacers that I know of, all I did was create some blank shortcuts that lead to a fake program.


How to use: [The Files]
This is very simple to do, as long as you place the "Blank" folder in the right place- you're good to go.
1 Place the folder called "Blank" into:
2 Navigate to C:\Windows\Blank
3 Simply drag one of the files labed "blank# - Shortcut" to your taskbar. You can only use one of each, so
if you need more than 4 you'll need to make more.

I knew I recognized your name.

You won't recognize me - I use my real name over at eVGA forums - but I don't post over there a lot, unless I have any issues....

And my most prominent issue has been dealing with the failure of Intel's Virtualization technology on my 780i :P

Z is good people.

However, Z, I tried DL'ing the file so I could just attach it to the post right here in the forums, and I keep getting a File not Found error....

Sorry about the file guys... the first link: the file hoster kept changing the link so you couldnt directly link to it... My site is currently under construction (setting up my new server ) but this link should be completely stable lol. Unless Microsoft desides to shut down live services :P - Windows Live

O, BTW I fixed my one as well... but since i'm just setting this new server up i may change organization and such... so if you could bind it with this thread john that'd be great.

and if you use the blue flaming Quake logo @ evga- then i've seen u at evga as well
