Toolbar Icon - Stop Moving!

Hey.

Is there a way to make the toolbar quick icons to stop moving around all over the toolbar?

This is annoying.

See pic attached as well

THANKS!

Hello Ben,

Enabling taskbar button grouping with the Always combine, hide labels option should do the trick for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

hey.

I was wondering if I can do that while using the "combine only when taskbar is full".

(I hate the "always combine" option - i don't see why anyone would choose it (-:

thanks

The main reason why is for what you are experiencing, and to keep the taskbar cleaned up more without multiple open window buttons for the same program. You can select the multiple opened windows for that icon from the thumbnail preview instead.

About the only other thing you can do is to drag the icons that you use less frequently to the far left to minimize them being moved. When you open a icon to the left of another one, it will move the right one over.
