Windows 7: Vista taskbar in win 7 ?

20 Mar 2011   #11

Windows 10 Pro (x64)

Don't pin so many icons onto the taskbar then you will have room!
*rolls eyes* You do not need to pin every single application you have you know?

I'm sure that there should be a Vista shell modification available for Windows 7. Google might help with that. I mean they do have shell modifications to make Windows 7 look like the Mac OS and Window classic. However, those are all unofficial and you should proceed carefully (the customization forum has some helpful people there that do this stuff regularly.)

If someone likes using a computer a certain way, then that's just fine. Besides, changing habits is not always easy for people.

*shakes head* Is all common sense lost on our society? Just because you aren't happy with one simple feature (because you aren't willing to get used to something new) in an OS that a company most make for billions of people....doesn't mean it is a failuire! Is it really that difficult to understand?

Besides, if you really think Vista is better than Windows 7, well...that's just laughable at best. It's really sad that so many people come in hear ranting and raving, making themselves look foolish, just because they don't see the EXACT same things they did in previous OSes. It makes me think these people never want anything new and better. They just want the same old same old. That's like using a black and white TV because everything new that takes time or newer hardware to adjust to is bad.

Find it more and more frustrating!Why have they messed up WIn7? It takes more time to do something simple in win7 then in the older OS!

You can shift click to open two explorer windows. You can also use the middle mouse button.
