Windows 7: Moving pinned programs to the right of the taskbar

Moving pinned programs to the right of the taskbar

Hello,

Hopefully i'm posting at the right section.

But I wanted to know if it is possible to make your pinned programs be at the right of the taskbar. So lets say you open a new program right now it comes to the right of the pinned programs right? Is it possible to move the pinned programs to the right and lock it there so that pinned programs are at the right and when you open a new program it just comes to the right of the ''Windows button'' as always. So the new opened programs still come at the left side but pinned stay at right.

Also a picture showing you what i mean.

Welcome kutsal,
I don't know if this will do exactly what you want but have a look here

Thanks for the quick response!

Yes that method does work on moving your pinned programs... but sadly the new opened programs still come to the right of the pinned ones.

Yeah I thought it would, I don't know if or how you would get them to open on the left, keep checking back somebody might know. Good luck.

I found it.

This is for all the people who come to this page coming from Google.

1. Right click empty area on the taskbar and hover over 'Toolbars' and make sure everything is unchecked.

2. Go back to 'Toolbars' and click, 'New Toolbar...'

3. Once the task-pane pops up, create a new empty folder and put it somewhere you wont move, change, or delete it. Now name the folder and select and confirm it in the task-pane.

4. Now you should see the name of the folder you created and selected on the right hand side of the taskbar. Right click an empty area of the taskbar and make sure there is no check next to the one labeled 'Lock The Taskbar'.

5. Now drag the draggable dotted section that showed after unchecking the 'Lock The Tasbar' button and drag it all the way to the left at the edge of the screen. Now you can drag the right-most dotted section (directly to the left of your pinned applications) to the right to adjust the distance.

6. Now to get rid of the folder title that you see, you need to right click the title of the folder that was added to your taskbar and make sure everything above the 'Toolbars' text is unchecked.
