New feature? Drag Taskbar buttons

Hi! I just noticed something cool!

If you have multiple taskbar buttons open then u can drag them along the taskbar and arrange them the way you like!

Its supercool since now Alt+Tab and Flip 3D is completely redundant thanks to Aero Peek!

Would like to hear from others!

Thanks!

Yep, I wouldn't call flip3D redundant though, as you can pin it to the taskbar and/or put it in your context menu as well.

Wow! I never knew that Flip 3D could be added to context menu! Actually I miss my Switch Windows shortcut from Vista's Quick Launch.

Thanks a bunch!

The only way I put it in the context menu was the manual way, entering the registry key. It works fine that way in 7. I didn't try the download so I'm not sure as to if that works as well.
