I'm not seeing what the tutorial is for, isn't this the default settings for the taskbar?

I may be wrong but i believe the 'Buttons' have text & the 'Icons' don't, making them more condensed.

So it's for people using the "xp style" taskbar then.

Hello Copernicus,

The buttons is to have the old Vista style taskbar with the open window Title text, and the icons is for the new default Windows 7 style taskbar that onle have the icons. You can see the example screenshots at the top of the tutorial to help get a better idea if each though.

Hope this helps,
Shaw

Under Vista and XP I used a utility called Taskbar Shuffle that let me put each button where I wanted it. Windows 7 is almost there, but not quite. (Note: this doesn't just apply to Firefox, it will occur with all applications that allow multiple instances).
Google for "7 Taskbar Tweaker".

Number of programs grouped

Hi,

I'm tired of looking for this answer everywhere (maybe i'm not looking well)... Is there any way to change the taskbar so it shows the number of windows opened of an application (when programs are grouped) like on Windows Vista and XP taskbar?

thanks

Hello Ritzpkr, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but not that I'm aware of.

You will have a extra edge on the pinned icon for each opened window you have for it. Plus, you can hover the mouse of the icon to see a thumbnail preview of the opened windows. You can see in the example below with 3 opened tabs (windows) of IE8.

I was wondering if there was a way to group unopened applications on the task bar?
