I simply eliminated the need for worrying about running out of space on the taskbar by another method not mentioned so far. Quick Launch - Enable or Disable

I downloaded that Windows 7 Taskbar Pinner app and it doesn't work at all. I keep getting an un-handled exceptions error.

Hello Dwight,

Right click on the program's shortcut and click on "Run as administrator" to see if that may allow it to run properly.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Presently I'm looking for a way to add toolbars onto the second display's smart taskbar option there. busy busy busy desktops!

I won't be needing to enable god mode in any form! (suffering from information overload! )

What is the "second display's smart taskbar option?" Is that an add on similar to what I use with Display Fusion?

That's also seen with the UltraMon program I use here. Since I bought both I may see DF used on a possible 32bit 7 install sometime or when I get around to restoring the Vista install I had backed for the second OS drive here.

I can imagine that would take some work since generally only the buttons for IE and other things like WE can be moved over to the second half there when extending a single desktop onto a second display. You won't find any move button for a new toolbar except seeing RocketDock extend across both when centered.

That is written for 7 alone and won't go Vista being a previous versiont to start with. There's still a degree of incompatibility between the two when trying to go backwards on things written specifically for the new where the taskbar is also different as well.

how to get a file to open directly to desktop not taskbar
how do I get a file to open directly to desktop not taskbar? I suppose opening all files in the task bar is someone's ideas of organization but I get really annoyed at having to chase all over with my clicker trying to open a file shortcut. It is not pinned to the taskbar.

Have drive icon directly on Taskbar? Not Explorer?
Is it possible to have the Drive icon DIRECTLY on the taskbar instead of pinned to the Explorer icon? I am actually having trouble filling my taskbar and I would like to be able to use all three drive icons. I would also like to be able to put folders directly on the taskbar, too.
