    Hello FrAgZoU,

    Since Windows 7 considers Computer just another Windows Explorer folder, it will be grouped and pinned inside the pinned user folder (Windows Explorer) on the taskbar. After you drag Computer to the taskbar, click on the arrow to the right of the pinned user folder (hover pointer over to see arrow). You will then see Computer listed under the Pinned area in that box.

    Hope this helps,

    hi all, I installed a ramdisk in win7, and it has a drive id "R:"

    I have a Full firefox 3 in the ramdisk, the path is: r:\firefox\firefox.exe

    when I pin the firefox.exe to taskbar, and click the task icon, win7 will create a new task icon for the firefox session instead of a combine icon with the origin one.

    also, I put the whole firefox directory to driver C: , do same action as above, it works as it should.

    maybe win7 does not think ramdisk as a local drive?

    or it is a bug of win7 super task bar?

    sorry my bad english.

    Hello Ourfear, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    See if you can create a shortcut in your Start Menu (or where you like in Vista) to the Firefox.exe on the ramdisk, then drag a copy of that shortcut to the taskbar to see if that may work better. If not, then you will have to leave it installed on the C: drive instead for it to work properly.

    Hope this helps,

    hi Shawn, I tried your suggestion, but it still opens a new task icon

    also I can't move it to C: drive because of I use a SSD drive, that's why I moved firefox to ramdisk to speedup.

    Ourfear,

    Double check to make sure that you have taskbar grouping set to "Always combine..".

    You said that it worked like this though:

    It could be a bug since this is still a pre beta version of Windows 7. You should send a feedback report to Microsoft to help make them aware of it. Hopefully they will fix it in a newer version.

    hi Brink,

    Yes I confirmed, the "Taskbar grouping" option is "Always combine, hide labels".

    I already sent a feedback to MS, thank you for help!

    Hello Igorstaro, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    About the closest you can come to it in Windows 7 is to use the Never Combine or Combine when full option here:

    Taskbar Button Grouping - Enable or Disable

    Hope this helps,
