Windows 7: Two taskbar questions


01 Oct 2009   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
 
 
Two taskbar questions

One: I use multiple hard drives. Is it possible to have each drive its own icon instead of them all being lumped into the "explorer" button?

Two: Is there any way to DYNAMICALLY center the taskbar buttons? Third party or not. This includes the open window icons as well.

Thanks ahead of time.

1. if your looking to create a icon to link directly to each seperate drive then yes just right click on either drive and click COPY - then on desktop right click and click copy shortcut and your done =P

2. No as of now there is a few ways dooing it but dynamically no no one has modified windows 7 to do that yet, trust me I'm there with you =P

Thanks,

I feel dumb.
I consider myself tech savy and I couldn't figure that out.

I am dumb.

Okay problem:
It still pins it to "Windows Explorer" instead of just ON the taskbar.

Hmm yup that seems to work, I personally would just add the quick launch toolbar then put it in there cause thats what I just did and it works great + it retains the harddrive icon.

Thanks a bunch BFK!
