Windows 7: Task Se7en


01 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 Build 7600
 
 
Task Se7en

This thread is a continuance of my posts in the *Ultramon Replacement* thread.

I've seen over 5 people willing to be guinea pigs.. err.. I mean pre-beta testers for Task Windows 7. Monday, May 4 I will post a link to Task Windows 7 for anyone wanting to check it out.

For those of you just tuning in..

Task Windows 7 is a multi-monitor taskbar application, like the Windows taskbar, but written specifically for Windows 7. It doesn't, yet, have all of the cool features of Ultramon or DisplayFusion. But, it's only in its infancy and will grow with time.




For those of you would be, future beta testers of Task Windows 7... In advanced, thank you for taking the time to help me out.

Why does the 2nd taskbar have a clock as well as the first?

Also if possible could you add a button alongside the min/max/close buttons that maximises across all monitors?

Windows XP & Vista
 
 

I was curious about the clock thing as well, mostly because it's something I haven't seen past programs do (DF/UM, etc.); I was wondering if it was a byproduct of using WDM and/or something that was making it easier for you to emulate that Windows 7 taskbar (comapred to w/e else DF/UM are doing).

Looking good though, I'm setting up a new system this weekend and after I've got it up and running smoothly with Vista I'll probably create a new partition to try the Windows 7 RC1 next week, I'll be in for testing Task Windows 7 then (I just wanna make sure all my stuff is working in Vista first and that the system is stable before messing w/Windows 7 ).

While I'm also testing DF, I see these as potentially two different target audiances: DF being more of a suite (wallpaper switcher, macro capable, taskbar, etc) and Task Windows 7 as a stand alone taskbar. (it's a big world out there ).

Oh, definitely KEEP the second clock! I spend a LOT of time on the second monitor and a clock there (kind of where you expect it to be) is much needed. With the new wide-screen monitors, it's a long way back to the main monitor sometimes!

I have a question: Can it auto-hide? And if so, does it auto-hide independently from the system task bar on the primary monitor?

(And, yes, I like the idea of two clocks, too.)

I have a pair of 24" 16:10 screens, the left one almost always in portrait mode (1200w x 1920h) and the right one almost always in landscape mode except occasionally when I'm editing an image that is vertically oriented.

DITTO.. Plz keep it there.. Basically the bar should look like its stretched across both monitors.. (ie: The System Tray and clock should be on the 2nd monitor)

I am now posting in this thread as requested.

I am running 2 Windows 7 RC1 (b7100) systems, both with dual monitors. One with ATI x1300 and dual Dell 19"'s, and the other with, NVIDIA Quatro (Dell Latitude 620) and dual Dell 17"'s.

Please post or PM when the pre-beta of Task Windows 7 is available.

Thanks for you efforts, right after I installed Win 7 RC I started looking for something like this.. glad I found you!
