That looks more like you have the taskbar properties set to "always combine - hides labels" not "combine when taskbar is full" or "never combine". You end up seeing multiple windows on one preview tab rather then separate buttons.

Sure; I have it set to "always combine". "Never combine" takes way to much space and is 'old-style' I don't want my Windows 7 to look like or behave like XP. Progression FTW!

Setting it to "never combine" is not a solution to this problem/weird behaviour. More an evasive manoeuvre i.m.h.o.

There's always the combine when full option as well. If you are opening WExplorer windows with the Computer icon on the desktop and not with the WE icon already pinned to the taskbar the previews wouldn't end up behind the WE icon either.

When creating the new shortcut for the CP - All Tasks I wouldn't expect to see multiple windows right behind the other shortcut previously pinned just because that has Control Panel as the name there.

Doesn't solve the problem. (Like I already said; I use the always combine-mode)

UnderBoac,

There is currently nothing that can solve the problem for this other than making sure that the shortcut is to the right of the pinned "Computer" or "Windows Explorer" taskbar shortcut.

I shall keep looking for an alternative way of creating the shortcut though to avoid this though, and update the tutorial if one is found.

Hi Brink

It's no big personal problem for me. I still use the shortcut via the start menu and I have it pinned to the Computer-shortcut. But I'm curious though what's going on here. Want to see the logic.

I really like the Windows 7 taskbar (always combine-mode) even though it's not perfect yet. Wished we "the users" had some more control over it's behaviour.
Maybe, in future, MS will improve it's customability.......

thanks and I'll keep following this thread (and others ) THis is a really great forum

Someone makes a partial blog using that for a name and everybody thinks that's what it's called?

I like the "Control Panel - All Tasks Revealed" title much better!

im experiencing an issue i didnt have before,if i have an explorer window open and then i click the "godmode" shortcut it opens the current explorer windows already open, the only way it will show the godmode folder contents is for me to have all windows closed first,i used to have it on my dock and i never noticed this issue before.

Hello Julian,

Double check to be sure to have the Control Panel All Tasks List icon positioned (dragged) to the right of the default pinned Windows Explorer icon location on the taskbar.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
