Windows 7: taskbar icon grouping

taskbar icon grouping

Is it possible to group icons that are pinned in the taskbar, into groups for quick launch. Example; system tools would be the name and have 4 icons inside that group name, like speed fans SIV64, cpuz and siw. Sort of like you can in windows 8 with the tiles.

Hello Jimbo,

I suppose that you could create folders for each group and pin the folders to the taskbar as toolbars. Afterwards, arrange (drag) the toolbars how you like on the taskbar.

Hope this helps. :)

Thanks Brink...I'll give a shot. After doing a search I found this nifty little app called Bins. This is exactly what I was looking for. Has any body else seen or used this?
