Windows 7: Hide programs in taskbar (Cascade)

Hide programs in taskbar (Cascade)

Does anyone know if I can pin my programs in the task bar but hide them until I require them and click on the arrow as you can in Vista?

You can do this on the right hand side of the task bar but I can't seem to make it work on the left.

Thanks in advance

Hello Steve,

You can create a new folder and place your program shortcuts in it, then pin the folder to the taskbar. Just do not expand the folder out on the taskbar to have the arrow to click on instead to have a menu pop-up to select a program in the folder like in the screenshot posted by Antman above.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Brink, if you insist on providing lucid, detailed and helpful responses that are easy to understand and implement, I will have to reconsider my Alexa review.
