Windows 7: Windows 7 7068 - Task Bar

It may be a setting. "combine when taskbar is full" is what I use and it does not do this. I tried it with the other settings and it still does not do that. I don't know how to make it do that. The first thing I do with all builds is use "only combine when taskbar is full"

Thanks for pointing that out we'll have to keep an eye on it.

It's never been there (on any of my installs, 7000, 7022, 7048, 7057 & now 7068). Always stays on the far left, unless unpinned from taskbar and moved to the left right hand side, but have just tried it & it still only opens within the same (overlapping) icon.

well i have been using Windows 7 since it was just in Beta and that has never been like that. I guess you guys dont use IE or you dont notice small things. It is a small change, but a good one that was well needed. I open 5-6 or more IE windows and before this new build, it was pretty difficult to have to right click to open a new IE window if you needed that.

Paul Thurott even wrote about this in his blog, so surely i can be the only one to notice this. I have installed windows 7 the 64 bit on my work computer, and i have installed it on about 10 other computers, it was never like that before build 7068. I will post 2 screen shots, the old build way of placing the icons and the new one.

Check it out and let me know. My new task bar thing is much easier to use now, if it is a fluke, i like it.

I see what you mean. That IS nice. Can you remember changing the setting that would have done that? I think it would be nice. You can do it by setting up a "real" quick launch. But it's a pain and requires registry editing (i think) You can get a quick launch going really easy but it's on the right side by the tray. Let us know if you figure it out.

man i didnt do anything. The only thing i did was upgrade from 7057 which was a fresh install. Now that you are all saying that i must have a fluke set up, i hope Microsoft can make that the default. It is much easier to pop up a new IE session.

Sorry - it was like that after the upgrade and i have been happy about it, and noticed no one was talking about that.

maybe the build you upgraded to was already modded for it

That's right, someone may have made the mod before seeding it. That's probably it. You can find tutorials on how to do it.

Windows 7 7068 Issue
For some reason 7068 won't let me set my screen resolution above 1600 x 1200. It's not necessarily a deal breaker but is rather annoying as I'm quite fond of my 1920 x 1200. Anyone else have this issue or have an idea of how to fix it?
