7+ Taskbar Tweaker

7+ Taskbar Tweaker
7+ Taskbar Tweaker allows you to configure various aspects of the Windows taskbar.
Most of the configuration options it provides can’t be tweaked using the taskbar properties or the registry.
The tweaker is designed for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

Demo video

Here is a video that demonstrates some of the tweaks:


Q: Which registry keys does 7+ Taskbar Tweaker modify? I don’t need extra processes in my system.
A: The only registry keys the tweaker modifies are its own settings. There are no registry keys for the options it provides. The tweaker does that by injecting a DLL to explorer, hooking/subclassing/some other methods of the dark side.
As for extra processes, the tweaker is a native program, and is very lightweight. It shouldn’t slow down your system, and uses an extremely small amount of memory. Also, you can hide the tray icon if you want.

In case you want to remove the tweaker’s settings from the registry, look for them here:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\7 Taskbar Tweaker
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run (“7 Taskbar Tweaker” value)

P.S. if you’re a programmer, you might want to take a look at the 7+ Taskbar Tweaking Library.

Q: My antivirus complains about 7+ Taskbar Tweaker.
A: It’s a false positive. I guarantee that the tweaker binaries (and any other files on this site, unless specifically noted) are 100% clean.
Also remember that the tweaker injects into explorer and modifies its memory, which is indeed suspicious.

Q: Can I Group/Combine/Label only some of the items on the taskbar?
A: Yes, use Taskbar Inspector.

Q: Can I use 7+ Taskbar Tweaker in a commercial environment?
A: Yes, feel free to use it wherever you want.

Q: Where is the portable version?
A: When installing the tweaker, choose the Portable type of install, as shown on the image below.
The portable version will be extracted to the selected folder.


Note: If the tweaker is already installed on your computer, the option won’t be visible. You can launch the setup with the /portable command line switch to force a portable installation.

Q: I want to report a bug/suggest a feature! What is the best way to do it?
A: Post it on the UserEcho page.

Q: I want to translate 7+ Taskbar Tweaker to my language.
A: The archive below contains the files needed to be translated.
Please read readme.txt before proceeding.

    Hi, Great Developer, this app is wonderful powerful, Now i want ask if this function “Hide the start button” can upgrade, please look at the picture below, https://pan.baidu.com/s/1gf0BSXH, I use 7+ taskbar tweaker effect is the left side, the tray icon is incomplete, but I use “UltraMon” this software is normal, as right side show, please help me, thank you very much!

    • RaMMicHaeL says:


      I’m not familiar with this issue. I see that you have some customization programs: UltraMon and weather near the clock is what I see on the screenshot. I assume that 7+ Taskbar Tweaker conflicts with one of the other customization programs.

      • laonongaiyumi says:

        Very thanks for reply, you are right, i have got the confliction between 7+ Taskbar Tweaker and my weather application, so my Wishes, is , if 7+ Taskbar Tweaker can update for “Hide the start button” function, because the same type application just as UltraMon can hide the start button and the effection is normal, the tray icons can see. If you care, the weather application is here, http://sj.ruanmei.com, it’s green and small.

    Fantastic software!

    Does it have a way to disable the “always on top” functionality (ala XP)?

    Love you. Even sent you some money. Quick question, when Microsoft breaks Taskbar Tweaker, why can’t you just upload a patch to the new library?

    Hi, RaMMicHaeL,
    thank you for this wonderful tool. Is it possible to add an option that prevents to minimize the active window when you click with left mouse button on it’s taskbar button? I want to be sure to have an active window when I click on taskbar item whatever it is already active or not. And I suppose I’m not one in that wish (did some googling on this).

  7. Mark says:

    would it be possible to implement the features of https://sourceforge.net/projects/dualmonitortb/
    it’s really useful but there are some problems if i use 7tt and that program at the same time

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      Hi Mark,

      Apps such as the one you linked, and other similar apps, aren’t supported. The reason is that these apps create another, custom taskbar, but 7+ Taskbar Tweaker is designed to work only with the original taskbar of Windows.

    Hi, error in w7…
    5.3 works ok
    5.4 have error

  9. Pj says:

    Hi, I was able to install this at my last uni (even despite the restrictions on the university computers) but my current uni blocks it (it seems it doesn’t block the actual install as it shows when I type it in ‘Start’, but when I try to open it it says ‘This app has been blocked by your system administrator’). Ever since Windows 10 was forced on people, it’s been really frustrating to try to use Windows, so do you know if there’s any way to get around this? It made using Windows so much easier.

  11. Ayhan says:
