The superbar is the taskbar. Just a differnt name for it And I was refering to the show desktop button that is on the end by the clock.
Show Desktop
Thanks a lot for the link showing the picture of that tiny (no anme) button and the clarification , that resolve the issue i had losing the desktop shortcut , it's smaller and it does everything it needs

Hello BlueDove,

This can show you how to open with a single left click.
Single-Click or Double-Click to Open an Item

You might also go through our tutorial index to see if you may be able to find other options to help get what you are wanting as well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
Opening file and/or folder in 1 click is not good for me because i use 2 single clicks to edit their names , i also use 2 single click and a right to copy their names or paste a new name on them.
a friend email me a link to your tutorial on Quick Launch , it is the reason i found your forum, i did try a few other links that were at the botom of the page ..... i did get great success with some and no success with others. Thanks for the link the index , i will go over them slowly,

the tutorial on Taskbar Button Grouping - Enable or Disable
is a small part of the fix i'm looking for ,
idealy i would love some guidance to create a taskbar like the one jimwillsher posted on your Quick Launch tutorial (page 5)

his taskbar seems to everything i'm looking for in a taskbar
i just don't know what keywords to use in my search
a taskbar like that seems to emulate Win XP and my Win2000Pro

BlueDove,

From that screenshot, he has Quick Launch enabled and dragged over to the far left of the taskbar, and is using buttons instead of icons on the taskbar.

For the best help though, it would be better to create a new thread for each different issue instead of trying to get them all answered in one post. This way there will be less confusion with all the different issues and possible solutions for them getting mixed up.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

@MacGyvr

i was the man who swore i would never use a computer. but my doctor forced me to use one, to learn to cope with what we can't cure. That's been 10 years now and i'm still coping. Windows 2000 had its days, it was a great system but it is becoming a dinosaur. Hell ! i'm starting to feel like i'm the dinosaur. People my age don't text message on a blackberry, they're dropping like flies, just lost my dearest friend few days ago, his heart gave out.

development on light application(32bits) such as virtual dubs ended years ago, and the heavier application are focussing on the 64bits platform ---- for example i believe that Adobe CS5 is only offered as a 64bits platform ----

Windows 7 offers some wonderfull feateres such as the ability to nest a 32 bits platform over a 64bits platform

Internet Explorer 8 with it's 100% , 125% , 150% is a godsent for an aging person who won't ware reading glasses.

the snipping tool looks like a real cleaver apps too. no longer need to to do print screen and photoshop it to crop out the small part i want, and i'm sure that in time , i will discover more

The part of Windows 7 with which i struggle most with is its defaults , the lack of friendlyness to a user who wants to manage the operation system,
i just can't fugure some of it's logic, and the giant icons bugs my little brain
perhaps when i'am near blind i will love them ??

not having made the transition to Win XP or Vista when they came out means that todays transition is a bigger struggle , but since it looks like i'm gonna be arround for a few more years , i have to make the transition. i have see some of your members with some smart taskbar , if i could get something like that , the transition would be so much easier

PS: the choice of words in the title for the topic is nothing more than my sarcastic way of saying i don't did it, "I just don't understand the new default" it seems take more clicks to get to the same destination

Holding the shift key as you click items on the taskbar allows as many windows to open as clicked (IE, Firefox, Explorer, etc). Hit the windows key+tab key to find the window you want, Win+D shows the desktop.

Google the Master List of Windows 7 Keyboard Shortcuts and pick out the ones you find useful.

Wow, thanks Brink , i would never had guessed that on my own , that make sense now , it explain why i saw the picture in the reply for your tutorial on Quick Launch,
i thought i was looking at small icons(shortcuts) that had been pinned to the taskbar.

I'm laughing at ignorance now .... no wonder i was pulling my hair .... i couldn't figure how to make 2 sets of buttons with different behaviors ... that's so funny

Ok , i will read the whole tutorial over (a few times if needed) and try to do what he did. Looks like that could work for me.

once again, many thanks Shawn

OK guys , Brink pointed me in the right direction,
my new taskbar does everything i was hoping for

a Left Quick Launch without text and title + "taskbar buttons" set to "Never combine" in priority does everything i was hoping for. Perfect fix . i now have a slim task bar that is ready to multitask
i did a reboot didn't loose the settings,
now i can't stop at all the fixes i tried to come up with these past 2 days

Thanks again Brink, i will go through your list of tutorials, lots of good stuff there
