7+ Taskbar Tweaker is ten years old today!

Exactly ten years ago, 7 Taskbar Tweaker v1.0 was released (changelog).

Five years ago we remembered how the first version looked and where it all started. This time, there are two presents for the occasion:

Happy birthday!

    Wow, 10 years already. I’ve put off upgrading Windows partly because of the stupid taskbar redesign by Microsoft. I’ve held on to Windows XP as long as I could, and 7+ Taskbar Tweaker made the leap bearable. I’m glad it also worked in Windows 10.

    I would almost never touch a Windows machine without 7+ Taskbar Tweaker installed. Thank you for your great work and fast update (stupid KB4517211 update).

    I wish I could thank you in person.

    I would like to thank you as well. I woke up today and started going insane trying to find my programs and windows in the task bar. I really could not live without this app. Thank you so much for all your hard work all these years.

    Open sourcing it is a great news!

    I hope you’ll fully open source it, as well as 7+ Taskbar Numberer, the day you don’t feel like maintaining these anymore. 😉

    I really appreciate your work which makes my and probably so many other lifes a tiny bit easier every day! Greetings from NRW 🙂

  8. Andy says:

    Any chance to make it fully open source? This would strengthen the project by offering other people possibility to contribute.

    You shouldn’t be worried about cloning the app, it wouldn’t make any sense moreover that sort of C source code is a disaster to support without the author.

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      For now, I don’t plan to release the complete source code. People still have the possibility to contribute to most functionality, being limited by testing and debugging on Windows 7. Not perfect, I know, but not impossible either.

  9. Great upgrades. Donation made. Many thanks for all your W10 work!

    I’m glad this tool exists!
    Have you considered using Patreon?

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      No. In fact, while I’ve heard of Patreon, I’m not really familiar with it. What are its advantages comparing to a donation option like the one I provide?

      • Nor Treblig says:

        For me as a “patron” (donator) I can easily make automatic monthly donations.
        The big advantage is that I and other patrons can support many different patreons using rather small individual donations.
        E.g. I can support 100 different ones with $1 each, but since they are paid monthly at once there won’t be all those per-transaction-fees I would get with individual transactions.
        The same applies to the patreon (creator), if there are 100 patrons the patreon will receive the money as a single transaction.

        Patreon also provides other additional services which are useful especially for content creators (art, YouTube videos etc.), but those won’t really apply to you.

        You can have different patron tiers. You can send them messages and give all patrons or some at specific tier levels e.g. early access to content (could be art or beta versions in your case), or it could be exclusive content.
        Instead of a monthly subscription model you can also use a per-content one, e.g. web-comic creators can create comics in irregular intervals and patrons only pay when there is a new one released.

        For me this platform makes it easy to support a lot of people.
        Disadvantage of course is, that they take a percentage for providing their services.

    Hey congratulations for having reached all this way with this amazing project! Please keep on it as it is a must have for all of us.

    Just need to say that on build 19013 the only version of 7TT that works is 5.7.0.4 beta. Any newer version fails to load.

    Thanks!!

      Thanks for the feedback.

      There shouldn’t be a difference between v5.7.0.4 and the latest v5.8.0.2, at least on Windows 10 20H1. I did a quick check, and both load when all of the options are off, but crash on some options (I saw “don’t group” causes a crash). I’ll look into fixing it.

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      Please try the newly released v5.8.0.3 beta. I didn’t test it thoroughly, but I think I fixed the most incompatibility aspects and most options should work.
