Windows 7: Speed up scrolling on Windows taskbar's open window titles

08 May 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Speed up scrolling on Windows taskbar's open window titles

I push my system hard, and have the hardware to handle it (for example, 24G memory.)

From time to time, I'll have an enormous amount of windows open. Right now, I have about 100 chrome windows open, with multiple tabs on each.

Once there are more windows open than Windows can display vertically on my 1050px height monitor, it shows an up arrow at the top of the list it can display, and a bottom arrow at the bottom of the list it can display.

If I hover over either of these arrows, it scrolls at about 3-4 windows per second, which can take forever to scroll to the bottom of the list (which is where the most recently opened windows appear.)

Besides learning how to close windows when I'm done with them, rather than on an every couple days basis, how can I switch more efficiently?

Sometimes ALT+TAB is a good alternative, and sometimes it isn't.

Can I decrease the delay between scroll, so the window would scroll faster? I have a 1680x1050 monitor, not a 560x1050 monitor -- can I have Windows display three columns of lists?

Excellent question, for which I too would love to find an answer.

Also, changing or diminishing the height or space occupied by each open window/line that is stacked on top of or out of the taskbar would be fantastic, along with changing the font perhaps.

Disable Scrolling in Windows 7 Taskbar?
Hello, I have been using Windows XP for a very long time and have customized Windows 7 taskbar to mimic most of XP's behavior with the aid of "7 Taskbar Tweaker" (custom groups, never combine tasks, etc.) However, as I run 21 or more tasks, I expected the tasks in the taskbar to shrink in size...
