Windows 7: Move Icons to left of taskbar?

25 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7 RC build 7100 (64bit)
Move Icons to left of taskbar?

Hey guys, I'm new here so don't bite my head off it there is a rather obvious way to do what im asking. lol

But I was wondering if there was a way to automatically move an icon to the far left of the taskbar whenever it has an open window(s), and when it doesn't, automatically move it back to its respective spot.

For instance, if there was a way to do this, instead of looking like this..

The taskbar would look like this..

any help here guys?
Thanks in advance!

Haven't heard of anything but here's a bump...

I think the point to sticking them is that they are always in the same spot...

You can only move the entire taskbar to the left or ight or top.

Right-click on the taskbar,. choose unlock taskbar an drag It to the left.

I know what you're saying, but IMO it'd be nice to just look to the bottom left (or top left in my case) for anything that has an open window.

Automatically move closed taskbar icons to
Although I love the new functionality of W7's taskbar I find it annoying I have to look across the screen to find closed icons rather than them sitting in the same place as before. I've tried the XP taskbar method but frankly it takes away a major functionality of W7. Does anyone know a way...
