So here's the problem. Before I ran 7TT the first time, my taskbar already acted that way. IE: 2 separate Firefox windows that were open could be independently moved around the taskbar. Opening a new window of firefox would make it pop out to the right of the other firefox windows, but it would not be attached, and could be moved around independently. It had been this way since installing windows 7.

Upon running 7TT and trying to change the display thumbnail setting, then closing 7TT, all of a sudden my firefox windows are now linked to one another on the taskbar, not in a single condensed window with multiple options, but in one giant linked/combined bar that cannot be moved on its own.

Now, I can get it to go back to its original behavior by opening up 7tt and telling it to "Don't group", and while the program itself is nice. I shouldn't have to run an application to allow me to do what I had working previously, which is where my frustration is originating from.

I've emailed the creator in hopes to find out if there's a chance the DLL 7tt injects into explorer could be the problem, or if he knows of anyway to force disable the grouping by application id. I'm half wondering if it resets everything to what it lists as "default" when closing, even if that wasn't what windows was doing previously. I have no idea, and am not sure what else I can do at this point.
Just restore you system to the time where u didnt install 7TT, only if u have create restore point before changing anything... so make sure to create restore point before use tweaks software so u can roll back if there something wrong after you make a change...

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

I would love to know how to stop application grouping in the way Eujin describes. I want my 2 notepad windows to be moved around in the taskbar independently of each other not both moved around as one.

It actually amazes me that there is not an option for this somewhere in taskbar settings... I don't want to have to run this app every time.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Sorry for "necroing", just found as I'm looking for a good spot on a good site, full of super clever super friendly folk, to hopefully help debug an issue I've created with my 7tt.

nizmo, assuming you're reporting the same issue as Eujin, and you've contacted the dev but no clue, there's a few things to try,

- proc(reg)mon while 7tt loads and fixes the bug (not hopeful, as 7tt is a black magic hooker:)
-- sfc /scannow to 'restore/ undo shells mods' (if this works, copy the cbs.log to temp/desktop and see if any hints are gleaned re WHATCHANGED)
--- Create a new user profile, log in, and see if this is similarly affected.

you might be able to find out using an inspection-application (I've acquired several spy.exe's, and wininspector and windetective both look useful).

Assuming of course you haven't fixed or reformatted

(Brink, this is a 7forum-wide SOS!) Any 7tt users that are inspection savvy, that might be able to solve my mystery of 'no right drag')? (I'll create a new post for that).

Hoping to acquire a debug release to get this mystery solved!
