[Tip] Tweak Windows 7 Taskbar to Your Hearts Desire

by Karthik on November 6, 2009 · 4 comments


Microsoft Released Windows 7 worldwide on October 22nd. So far Windows7 has proven itself to be a successful release so far. One of the most radical changes in Windows7 has been the all new redesigned taskbar.

Though it borrows some cues from OS X, am a big fan of the new taskbar, and feel that Microsoft finally has the best solution to managing multiple windows on a clutter free taskbar.


However there are people who wish to tweak this taskbar according to their own wish and desires.. If you are one of those, then 7 Taskbar Tweaker is worth a look.

7 Taskbar Tweaker, allows you to tweak the various aspects of the Windows7 Taskbar, in a simple and effective way. Some of the features of this small and useful tool is :

  • Show standard window menu on right click instead of jump list.
  • Close or focus a window on middle click instead of running a new instance.
  • Disable grouping of windows by file path or application id.
  • Cycle through windows of a grouped button on left click instead of showing a thumbnails preview.
  • Open with while dropping a file on a taskbar button instead of pinning.
  • Disable thumbnail previews.


Go ahead, and download 7 Taskbar Tweaker if you wish to tweak the tiny details of your Windows7 Taskbar.

wow awesome I didn't even know it was possible to edit those things.

I was hoping there was a way to use middle click to close, as I'm so use to that from my browser. Happy to be able disable the right click menu too. I just don't find myself using the jumplist as much as I do the normal rightclick menu.

You can still get to jumplists my holding shift when you click on a taskbar item =)
