Windows 7: Taskbar: Push Newly Opened File Icons to the Right / Last Position

Taskbar: Push Newly Opened File Icons to the Right / Last Position

Hello Windows 7 Expert,

I have my Taskbar set at Never Combine

However, currently when I open a new file in Windows 7 it still groups files somewhat. Let me explain.

Suppose I open a Word File, then an Excel File and then a Word file. Instead of the files appearing in that order on the Taskbar, Windows 7 will place the last Word File in the second position (Adjacent to the first Word file) instead of to the right most position (last / third position).

I really dislike this behavior because if I have multiple different files open and then I open another file I often have to look for its position in the taskbar instead of just looking to the right position which is much more efficient. I would much rather Windows 7 behave like Windows XP where every new file on the taskbar is placed in the right most position.

Can this be achieved in Windows 7?

Thank you.

Can't do with built-in Win7 features.

Thank you for your reply and the suggestion.

I'll check out the program.

I am going to assume it doesn't contain any malicious code.
