Thanks for 7+ Taskbar Tweaker and in particular the w10_large_icons feature, which I found at http://www.tenforums.com/general-discussion/10367-make-taskbar-icons-bigger-2.html while searching for a solution for the Win 10 small taskbar icon annoyance.
Loved the win 10 Large taskbar Icons feature! Unfortunately, they won’t let me use it at work because it triggered Symantec Endpoint intrusion detection and has two Trojan hits on VirusTotal
I use your Taskbar Tweaker 7+ program under Windows 7 (very handy thank you), and I wanted to know if it were possible to add the “decombine via left-click on the group, not only via on mouse hover.
And sorry for translation
Currently, that’s not possible. There’s a suggestion post for that, feel free to vote:
Could 7+ have a feature to minimize on Windows startup? Currently running Windows 10, and I have to minimize it every time Windows is restarted.
Otherwise, totally solid man. Just donated $10.
Thanks for the donation!
7+ Taskbar Tweaker should start minimized to tray by default. Perhaps you have more than one entry for it in the autorun list. You can check this in task manager, the startup tab.
Ram, you’re right man. Went thru a bad Windows 10 upgrade. I’ll reinstall it or do the portable route. Thanks.
A couple of weeks ago I sent a comment to you using the hidden, disposable email address submitted above. You responded promptly, for which I thank you.
However, today I received a phishing email at that same email address (the old ‘your PayPal account is limited’ scam).
So I suspect that your website has been compromised.
If you want to know more about this, contact me offline via that disposable email address.
I’m just browsing around, and I wanted to point out that anyone can send an email from any email address. I can send an email to you with the “From” field set to “Steve Jobs email@example.com“, while having had no access to any such email address, nor the Apple smtp server, nor ever having had any interaction with Jobs, Apple or anything else. The SMTP protocol is very versatile and you can do pretty much anything you want with it. I wouldn’t be worried about compromised machines just as a result of a rogue email from a trusted email address.
It would be great if there was an option in Taskbar Tweaker 7+ to reduce the size of font of seconds in the clock. Something like, you know, big hour, big minutes and small (eg. half height) secons.
Seconds are useful but too much distracting now.
You might want to try out T-Clock, which is designed for customizing the taskbar clock.
Do you know any way to lock lf2 .dat
The remove exta gap between items option works fine while in horizontal mode. I only use the taskbar in vertical mode. There is a bit of space on each side of the items that cannot be reduced. Can you reduce it somehow while in vertical mode?
The trick which 7+ Taskbar Tweaker uses to reduce the gap doesn’t work with the vertical taskbar mode.
As of now, I don’t plan to search for a more universal solution.
In regards to the w10_large_icons feature: Is there any way I can make your software load before the desktop appears?
I realize this is something minor, but I really don’t like having to see the icons small even for a moment. They don’t become large until after your program eventually launches.
There’s no solution to this that I’m aware of, sorry.
Isn’t possible to install as a service, and loading faster in startup?
That might be possible, but it will require administrator rights, which are not required now. I do not plan to change the tweaker to use a service.
hi, i’m using win7 64 bit. i want to disable tumbnail preview at taskbar on mousehover. searched google, forums etc. non of the articles helped me inculiding editing registry, system performance options, disabling aero peek, using gpedit.msc… only taskbar tweaker solved the problem. but:
first of all i do not want to use a program to do this.
and secondly, if you managed to do this, hiding prewiev with a program, that means there must be a solution. could you please tell me how to do this without using a program.
There’s an answer to your question in the FAQ:
What would be really useful would be an option to have the taskbar buttons a different color to the taskbar itself, or some other way of telling the groups when you have manual grouping with vertical taskbar. see here:
You are beautiful.
is it maybe possible to center the taskbar icons like shown here with your tweak? (http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/20602-taskbar-center-icons.html)
I think it looks awesome and would be extremly useful for multi-screen-setups.
No, the tweaker doesn’t have such an option
It would be very nice if Tweaker had this feature.
I donated so I can test your alpha versions of 7+ Taskbar Tweaker. I haven’t received any e-mail with a download link. I checked my spam folder as well, but no e-mail. Am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
E-mail I used: firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ve replied to you via email.
Hey, I made a donation just a bit ago in order to get the alpha version, and it says I’m not in the database. Does it just take a little while to process or what?
It shouldn’t take long to arrive. Contact me via email with your details, and I’ll check it out.
Hey, I made a donation just a bit ago in order to get the alpha version, and it says I’m not in the database. Give me a hand please.
Thank you for the donation! I’ve replied via email.
Dontaed a little while ago and haven’t received my download link. How long does it usually take? Thanks again for this helpful software/.
It shouldn’t take long. I have also replied via email.
Hi, donated and won’t let me download. Thanks!
I have replied via email.
I tried using the alpha versions of taskbar tweaker with Win10 anniversary, but Win10 is detecting the download as malware (Trojan:Win32/Varpes.M!cl). Virustotal also is reporting 9/56 engines detect it as malware https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/4db925bfe1d5d8c193c49da2a7077868eeb24036b747372154c84679fdf8c279/analysis/1472670410/
I’m sure this is a false positive…. but is there something you can do to eliminate that?
The only thing I can do is contact the companies, but I don’t want to invest my time in that, since that’s an alpha version.
As a side note, I have just released a public beta version, which seems to have less detections.
I just tried the new beta, and Win10 does NOT detect it as malware. Not sure why the alphas are borked and the beta works… but problem solved
I’ve been using Taskbar Tweaker for several years, and it has worked like a charm. Recently, both of my work PCs (a Win7 and a Win10 machine) have been giving the following error message:
7+ Taskbar Tweaker: Could not load library (1003),
and 7TT tweaks do not work. I’ve identified the cause as a block by CylancePROTECT, which my company has recently started using. If there is a workaround, I would love to know about it. I haven’t figured out yet whether Cylance has a list or is identifying 7TT through the Windows Explorer processes it affects. Thought I would share.
Error 1003 means that the tweaker could not create a remote thread in the explorer’s process.
I’m not familiar with CylancePROTECT. If it has a white list, try adding the tweaker. If that doesn’t work, contact the company and ask them for a solution.
Thanks! That helps. CP uses an AI engine to identify and prevent suspicious processes from running, and as yet I have not seen a white list, though maybe there is one hidden somewhere. I’ve reached out to the company to get more information. If I find a solution, or whatever feedback I get from the company, I’ll share here for others’ benefit.
Apparently, the MD5 hash of some version of 7TT is the same as this file:
and that could be causing some problems in misidentifying it.
Which version of 7TT is that? In general, having an MD5 collision is very very unlikely, unless the collision was deliberately forged.
This software is not able to run. We have trend micro running in our corporate network and my computer. It throws an error of behaviour violation. It is a fantastic utility but cannot make it run.
Any help is welcome.
P.s – Have communicated to trend micro just now.
Which software are you referring to? What is the exact error message that you’re seeing?
Thanks for coming back so quick,
I get this error ‘Malicious Behaviour Detections’
Let me know if you need more information.
That’s indeed something that you’ll have to solve with Trend Micro. If it has a whitelist, try adding 7+ Taskbar Numberer, that might help.
I am using 7+ taskbar numberer
How to I get textify to collect text ?
Move textify over msg or what ?
Move your mouse over the message, and press the key combination, Shift + Middle mouse button by default.
Shift + Middle mouse button
Got an odd sounding request for 7 taskbar tweaker.
Could it be made to set the taskbar to auto hide on exit (and during crashes) and to disable auto-hide once it’s finished starting.
This will be useful in conjunction with no_width_limit as it means window positions wont get screwed up if the taskbar goes back to its original width, and also startup will be a bit prettier as you wont see the taskbar resize.
