Windows 7: Seperating and Locking taskbar icons.

Seperating and Locking taskbar icons.

Is it possible to separate icons on that taskbar, for example Internet apps be sperated from other apps and locked so I don't change the order)? From what I gathered from another post, Stardock Corporation - Software - ObjectDock Plus - Product Information, would accomplish this? However, ideally I'd rather not use a 3rd party app.

I'd appreciate any help

thanks

What I did was to create an empty folder in c:\users\Tanya, which I called "games toolbar"

Then right click on the toolbar, select new toolbar and navigate to this folder.

Then from my desktop I dragged shortcuts to this new toolbar.

Untick show text and show Title and you have another toolbar just like quick launch.

You can do this for any folder and it's contents will be shortcuts on the toolbar.

As an example, I often do this when I install office for people as they like to have a toolbar of office shortcuts.
