Ultimate Taskbar Controller for Windows

Friday, May 20th, 2011

I don’t know what to think about this one; on one hand, third party add-ons for Windows always make me nervous … but on the other hand, I do have my gripes with the layout of the standard Windows taskbar.

You cannot make many changes to the Windows taskbar. Sure, you can move it around to place on another edge of the screen. You can also add some items to it and remove some others, but controls are still very limited, even in Windows 7 which offers more taskbar options than any other Windows operating system.


How to Center Windows 7 Taskbar Items

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

It’s great when a new version of Windows adds useful new features, but it seems pointless to keep rearranging the interface like this …

Many of you are aware that Microsoft changed the taskbar in Windows 7 quite a bit in comparison to Vista and Windows XP. The taskbar is by no means a perfect solution, but it offers several improvements that make sense to the majority of users. I for myself like the ability to pin programs, folders and files to the taskbar as it is a very comfortable option to open the items in the operating system.

The pinned and open items on the other hand are always located on the left side of the taskbar, on the right side of the start menu orb. Some users may want to change the location, especially if they have a widescreen monitor with lots of space on the taskbar.
