    Thanks for a great tool. I started using it today. Maybe a stupid beginners question: Do I have to rearrange my groups everytime I open / close a grouped program or is there a way the groups are saved? I arranged some groups but when I close / open a program from a group its ungrouped again.

    Hi Michael,

    first of all thanks for this great tool and for making it freeware.
    Do you have any plans on making it Windows 8.1 compatible?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey budd,

    Firstly I would love to say thanks for this epic tool,

    I just downloaded it last night, and I’m really impressed with the features included in the tool, so simple and powerful,

    So i said why dont i give it a shot and translated it to my language,

    This is really my first try to translate anything, the translation is pretty good, but i hope i got it done right,

    i’ve replaced English language with my language as you said in the ‘Read Me’ file,

    i’ve attached 2 files, first one with ” tag because my language is Right To Left, but i dont know if it’s right!

    So the other file without DIV tag, you can see which one is working and use it, sorry but this translate is like saying thanks to you i think xD

    Give me response please as soon as possible.

    I’m getting the following error message when trying to update to v4.3.1: 7+ Taskbar Tweaker: Could not load library (101). What’s wrong & how do I fix it?

    Thanks

  5. Marvin Bendik says:

    I was finally able to install the update after closing v4.3. The update won’t install with a prior version running.

    Hello,Mr.RaMMicHaeL! I just want to ask why can’t we exit “7+ Taskbar Tweaker” with saving changes? We hope you can add this feature! 3Q!

    I tried the unchecky program yesterday and it did not seem to work on ccleaner, then tried the new beta today and one feature seemed to work but the other did not. I saw you are working on ccleaner but it said browser and there is also a toolbar. I have always removed the checks but the program has been sneaky in that it has a delay before the options are shown in which most users hit next before it appears. Anyway I left the checks in the option and it did not seem to install but there was no second feature to warn me if I had actually wanted to install the browser and toolbar. Also it is unusual to have unchecky install to the start menu instead of the program tab but I eventually saw it. My four uninstallers do show unchecky in case I wanted to uninstall it. I did not know you had a blog until I selected the about bug feature in the start menu. When I went to your website there was not a listing for blog or forum until I selected about which I thought was just to tell about you. Thanks for the beta although I usually wait until a program is out of beta.

      Are you talking about this?

      It didn’t offer toolbars for me, only the Google Chrome browser.
      I’m working on it, though.

      Also it is unusual to have unchecky install to the start menu instead of the program tab but I eventually saw it.

      It creates a folder in the “All programs” folder. That’s what most programs do, no?

      When I went to your website there was not a listing for blog or forum until I selected about which I thought was just to tell about you.

      Are you talking about the http://unchecky.com/ website?
      It has a link to the blog on top, as well as a link to the bug tracker in the FAQ and in the contact pages.

      Thanks for the beta although I usually wait until a program is out of beta.

      You’re welcome, thanks for your feedback.

        I uninstalled Unchecky v0.1.2 and CCleaner and downloaded and reinstalled first Unchecky v0.1.3 beta and then CCleaner v4.08.4428. The TJFAI.jpg listed above is similar however I get a second line check box says Also include Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer. I will try to send you a screenshot of the options page and also one of the start menu versus program listing. When I clicked on your email box the security letters were hard to read to get your email address so I opted to comment here instead. After installing v0.1.3 the check was missing from the first box today but still had the check in the second box which I left checked and completed the install of CCleaner. CCleaner still worked great as always but neither Google Chrome or the toolbar were installed on my XP Pro. I still did not get any warning I had a check in the second box if it was supposed to warn me. Thanks

    Is it possible to show Windows 7 taskbar exactly the same in different location, I mean that when it’s located left side of the screen instead of bottom of the screen it looks exactly the same as it was bottom of the screen.

    Is it possible to make taskbar which is located left/right side of the screen smaller, so it would looks like it was located bottom/top of the screen?

    Thanks,

    ToniK

    Hello,

    My problem with Windows 7 preview pane is that it doesn’t stick. i.e., when I move mouse out of the preview pane, it disappears. How can I make it ‘stick’?

    Thank you.

    Double Click on empty space not showing desktop (as it did in earlier versions). I have Win 7 Pro and latest stable 7+

  11. JJB says:

    None of the Double click options work (except nothing, I suppose!). See my configuration .png http://sdrv.ms/1gZQdSo

    • JJB says:

      OK now it is working again. Instead of just uninstalling, I uninstalled and deleted what was left in the program folder. Then I reinstalled and everything is fine. Must have been some registry conflict…

  12. 7+ taskbar is the best add-on I’ve ever used for optimizing space on screen. Ability to remove gap between pinned items, and remove gaps between tray icons is awesome. Love programs that takes little number of pixels on screen like winamp, etc.

    Got 2 questions:
    - Will there be any way to manually set the number of pixels in advanced settings for GAP between pinned items on taskbar ? We can manually specify for tray icons (set to 2 in my case). Would be nice to see for pinned items !

    - Outlook 2013 has major spacing issues. Microsoft made a big mess with whole 2013 office suite as far as wasted space on screen.
    I’m looking for a way to reduce wasted space in Outlook in the Folder Pane on the left. Notifce 1/4in wasted space between every mail account, and 1/16in space between every folder.
    New screens have usually less vertical pixels than good old 4:3 monitors. It’s a shame that microsoft wastes so many vertical pixels all around the place.
    Same for reading pane. I wish we could hide the header. Space remaining for reading the actual email is ridiculously small.
    I’d be willing to pay for a software that fixes Microsoft errors.

    See 2 images here:

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      Will there be any way to manually set the number of pixels in advanced settings for GAP between pinned items on taskbar ?

      Currently, the gap is removed by using a different type of a taskbar button while calculating its size – i.e. the size is hardcoded and I have no control over it. Perhaps it could be modified by using a different approach, but I don’t believe it’s worth the effort.

      Outlook 2013 has major spacing issues.

      Have you considered Thunderbird?

      • >> I don’t believe it’s worth the effort.
        OK you’re probably right. Thanks for the explanation.

        >>Have you considered Thunderbird?
        Considered thunderbird yes but it’s not powerfull enough for my needs. (20 imap accounts + 20 offline PST) + calendar + contacts + ability to sync contacts and calendars with my android phone. And ability to load multiple windows (calendar on screen 1, emails on screens 2 and 3 and so on…)
        So far staying with Outlook 2010. Would need to upgrade resolution to 2560×1600 in order to upgrade office. Costs around 1500$ per monitor.
        Anyways I’ll stay with 2010 version so don’t waste your time with this request.

        Thanks again for 7+ taskbar product, and for quick answers.

  13. Unchecky is really a unqiue tool you created. Hats off for thinking of it and creating such software. I just blogged about it. http://www.alltechflix.com/2014/02/unchecky-automatically-unchecks-box.html

  14. Javan says:

    Is it possible to add a picture to the show desktop button (Windows 8.1) The button is functional, but there is no picutre. Microsoft has seemed to remove the picture;you dont even see it when you hover your mouse over it. You only see it when you click on it. I would like to see it at all times, instead of making sure to put my cursor in the precise location, since i have a secondary monitor i frequently throw my cursor past it onto the second monitor.

    So all in all; i am asking if you have the ability to have a picture added to the show desktop button at all times, for normal, hover and pressed instances?

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      Perhaps it’s possible to change it by modifying the theme. Have you looked at it?

      • Javan says:

        Yes, it is possible to have this image disaplyed by modifying the theme, but i have grown used to the default theme by windows. I was just wondering if you were able to add an image there. I’d rather not change the theme. And by modify, if you mean using 3rd party programs, such as windowblinds, then i am not that advanced or experienced with such programs.

        • RaMMicHaeL says:

          I didn’t mean to suggest replacing the theme. I meant that perhaps copying the button image from e.g. Windows 7 to the default theme might work.
          Anyway, I don’t plan to add this feature to the tweaker.

  15. David says:

    Thank you very much for this great tool!

    I would like to make a suggestion for improving the 7+ taskbar program:

    To remove the color effect when one is over a button on the taskbar (red for Chrome, yellow for a directory, etc).

    That color effect that I find it unnecessary and that bothers me a lot in from windows xp.

    Congratulations!

    Thanks for 7+ Taskbar

  17. LaczkoUr says:

    Thanks for the TaskbarTweaker tool!
    The double click to open, and middle click to close ones are very useful.

  18. Mitko says:

    On the Windows 8.1 Spring update (Update 1) i get the “Could not load library (107)” error

  19. AByH says:

    Hello RaMMicHaeL!
    7+TT, is great! good work! MS should pay for this =)
    Please take a look at my “startmenyorb” I made: http://www.deviantart.com/art/Start-Likes-Systray-291090544

    Q: Is it possible to ad a tweak in 7+TT for the taskbar when you but it on the side, (left/right side of the desktop), so it remove extra gap between icons, and makes the taskbar smaler/thinner as it is now on top/bottom? By default it is almost the size of two icons side by side.

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      Hi AByH,

      Please take a look at my “startmenyorb” I made

      Nice. Personally, I prefer the colorful one, but it’s a matter of taste.

      As for your question: it’s possible to make the vertical taskbar thinner by using an advanced option of the tweaker. Please refer to the help file for more details.

  20. Zany Blunts says:

    Hello, I have an idea for a the 7+ Taskbar Tweaker that I wanted to share with you: to be able to de-combine window(s) from the rest…

    For example, if you have 4 PDFs (A, B, C, D) open in acrobat, they combine under the one icon because they are all the same type, and you are not able to rip one or more of those windows away from combining and have it separate from the rest. It would be cool to have AB&C combined with D being on its own next to it. Or also have A&B combined with C&D combined next to it. Understand what I’m getting at?

    Anyways, thank you so much for this awesome program. =]

  21. Zany Blunts says:

    No way… I was trying to do that but it is not working… Would another setting in the program prevent that from happening?

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      That option doesn’t work with combined items. You might try the option Decombine on mouse hover to overcome this limitation.

      • Zany Blunts says:

        Ok, that’s why then. I like having them combined, but once in while it would be nice to have two separate combined sets of windows of a single program that I am using for different purposes.

        Thanks for the quick feedback!

  22. Margus says:

    Hello!

    It seems your awesome and very useful application is not working after doing the Windows 8.1 Update. Tried reinstalling without success. Can you confirm this and possibly give an estimate how much time until an update?

  23. Ron says:

    it is not recognizing my donation

  24. David says:

    Hello!
    I have seen your previous blogposts about the tweaker getting the error message “Could not load library”
    However, I believe I have a slightly different problem?
    It is not loading a different library(?)

    I tried reinstalling. Here is a screenshot

  25. Radek says:

    Hi,

    thanks for a great tool:)
    Is there a chance to group either by an app ID (as it is now) or by a datetime of instance start? So the first window(the most on the left) would be the newest one…
    Thank you

  26. Javan Miller says:

    Ever thought of creating a different design/layout/skin for this program? Or allowing others to create skinpacks?? I love this program, but in my opinion the looks of the program is bland …

  27. 7+ Taskbar Tweaker Fan says:

    Thank you!
    Does what it says and does it perfectly!

  28. Friend says:

    7 taskbar tweaker is a great program. Using it in a multi-user-environment like AD the program and the setting won´t be loaded for a new/ other user than the admin, who configered the system.
    Are there any settings in 7 taskbar tweaker to load the program with all users and use the once made configurations?

    Thanks a lot

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      No, there’s no straightforward way to setup the tweaker for all users.
      You can automate the installation using a silent setup. Then, you can export the settings from the registry of a configured user and import them for other users.
      Alternatively, a portable version might work.
