Windows 7: Pinning vertically

Pinning vertically

You can pin programs to the Windows 7 task bar, but I want to have a pop-up that I can pin a few programs within the vertical alignment of a pinned program. If you pin a program beside the start button and you want to pin another program it would go to the right of the task bar. I want to pin it vertically so I click on a part of the task bar and I have a list of custom programs vertically.

You can create custom jumplist (menu, which pops up on right click on pinned item) and put your custom programs in such jumplist.

it is possible to have a vertical taskbar

Right-click an empty space on the taskbar. If Lock the taskbar has a check mark next to it, the taskbar is locked. You can unlock it by clicking Lock the taskbar, which removes the check mark. Click an empty space on the taskbar, and then hold down the mouse button as you drag the taskbar to one of the four edges of the desktop. When the taskbar is where you want it, release the mouse button.
Note
To lock the taskbar into place, right-click an empty space on the taskbar, and then click Lock the taskbar so that the check mark appears. Locking the taskbar helps prevent it being moved or resized accidentally.


Unlock and move the taskbar (the video wont play for me???)

You can do what I have done in the pic by just making a folder and dragging shortcuts to it.

With this many shortcuts I usually have it open in Grid mode, but I wanted to show the vertical stack.
