7+ Taskbar Tweaking Library

7+ Taskbar Tweaking Library is a library for manipulating the taskbar of Windows 7 and above. It’s inspired by the 7+ Taskbar Tweaker program, and it allows you, as a programmer, to manipulate the Windows taskbar, which is virtually impossible to do with the documented Windows API.

You can take a quick look at the provided API here. For a more extensive look, refer to the examples which are provided together with the library.

In general, the library allows you to:

  • Get extensive information about the taskbar items and groups on all taskbars.
  • Reorder taskbar items, and reorder buttons within groups.
  • Set per-AppId settings.

For example, if you’d like to have the taskbar button of your program to never show labels, you can easily do it with the library:
