View Full Version : reorder taskbar manually?
03-08-2006, 03:38 PM
I'm using winXP sp2
I open things like Notes, GAIM (instant messaging), Sametime (internal IM), itunes, Max, task manager, and a few other things all at once and usually have them open all at once throughout the day.
Is there a way I can drag the tab to reorder them?
Ideally I'd like some things to not have tabs at all, but I don't think that's possible yet.
Any way to reorder them without installing some crappy software? I've scene a few things out there and they are trying to charge 20 bucks for it. I'm ok using programs like TweakUI, but not less reputable softwares.

LOL. I've actually written a little program to do this and gave it away for free, source code included.
That's the birth place of my program. The pics and links don't work anymore because I moved to a new web host. I could dig it up from my archive if you're interested.

I'm definitely intersted. The program links there don't seem to work either.
Let me know if you link that to a new location. You seem to have impressed a few people over there writting that in a day. I'd really like to have that.
It would be really cool also if I could create some kind of program where it would automatically place the folder where I want it. So maybe my email would Always be first, then max, then photoshop....ect. Basically I would have to make a list of programs and give the order so it would place one program in between the others if one was opened later.
Does your software cause any problems with things like Alt+Tab to switch programs, or Windows+Tab to run through the tabs on the task bar? Just curious.
Thanks for the post.

Well the source code is there, so find someone who knows Windows programming (particularly MFC) and you can do whatever you want with it. It's a really simple concept actually. Enjoy.

There are programs that push programs to the system tray, you'll find it in google.
