Windows 7: Have applications open in the same taskbar place without pin

Have applications open in the same taskbar place without pin

I prefer to have my browser button on the far left of the taskbar. This is why I have the browser pinned here and I use grouping. Now I was wondering if it was possible to NOT have it pinned here but still have the button in the same place if I open it.

Like for example, nothing pinned in the taskbar and I have explorer/taskmanager opened and I open my browser and have the button automatically placed at the far left instead of the 3d position in this example.

Welcome to Seven Forums benpin123. I don't believe so. You can, however, left click on the browser icon and drag it to the far left after you open it. Not what you wanted, but an easy way to get it in position. A Guy

Windows 7 applications hidden under taskbar
Hello, I'm using Windows 7 x64. I have placed the taskbar on top. I've noticed many applications will open at the top with the titlebar underneath the taskbar. This is extremely annoying and incredibly dumbfounding how Microsoft released Windows with this bug. How do I resolve this so that...
