Windows 7: Windows 7 7068 - Task Bar

Does file explorer funtion in the same way for you dirk? I usually have multiple instances of file explorer open. It is a pain to open them in the current (7057) setup.

Right click on taskbar and go up to toolbars and see if quicklaunch is listed there. I will bet it's there. That's not default. Someone set it up. Let us know.

It has always been like this in all of the different builds, what you're describing is the option "never combine" in the "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties".

There's three different settings for the "Taskbar buttons":
1. "Always combine, hide labels"
2. "Combine when taskbar is full"
3. "Never combine"

But as I said, nothing's new under the sun...

That's not what is going on here. Unless you have to restart after you change it. I tested all three options. None of them are doing what he is describing. See the screenshots he posted. His is acting like a true quick launch live XP and Vista.

One easy way to go through all your open windows is to use the win key + Tab or Alt + Tab.

You may be the first to notice, I don't use IE, so I wouldn't know.

Dirk,

Thats a bug, the reason you have two Internet Explorer icons is because Explorer uses heuristics and an APPID registry value for mapping applications to their associated taskbar icon... Somehow your IE signature changed or its APPID changed hence the second IE icon.

That exact taskbar application behavior was explained during the PDC last year

Chrome currently has zero plans about supporting Windows7, Firefox is however making their browser completely integrated with Windows 7`s new Explorer features

If it was this then Labels would appear in the taskbar as only option 1 removes them.

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?
