7+ Taskbar Tweaker on Windows 11 with Windows 10’s taskbar

7+ Taskbar Tweaker on Windows 11 with Windows 10’s taskbar

Windows 11 was officially released two days ago, and here’s another post about 7+ Taskbar Tweaker’s compatibility with it. In short: Nothing changed regarding the tweaker’s compatibility with the new Windows 11 taskbar, and probably never will, but there’s a way to get back the old taskbar, with which 7+ Taskbar Tweaker is mostly compatible.

Getting back the old taskbar in Windows 11

Let’s start with the good news. Even though Microsoft reimplemented the new Windows 11 taskbar from scratch as was mentioned in the previous blog post, the old taskbar code was left beside the new one, and there are several ways to activate it. Here is a great summary of the options by Gaurav, but I’ll just mention the steps that worked for me:

  • Install and configure Explorer Patcher for Windows 11, a great project by Valentin-Gabriel Radu which brings back the old taskbar on Windows 11, and fixes some of the quirks that have to be fixed as a result.
  • Install the latest beta version of 7+ Taskbar Tweaker (non-beta support will follow soon, keep reading for details).
  • Enjoy Windows 11 with the good old taskbar tweaked to your taste.

The latest beta version of 7+ Taskbar Tweaker, 5.11.2.1, has most of the tweaks working with the old taskbar on Windows 11. Originally designed to be compatible with a Windows 10 Dev Channel build, the beta version requires a supporter access code for it to work on Windows 11. Your support is highly appreciated, and if you have any problems with it, feel free to contact me.

The latest non-beta version of 7+ Taskbar Tweaker, 5.11.3, doesn’t support the old taskbar on Windows 11. I’ll be working on a new, fully compatible non-beta version, which should be ready in the near future.

Regarding the new taskbar in Windows 11

As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, 7+ Taskbar Tweaker will probably never be compatible with the new Windows 11 taskbar. It took a lot of time and effort to implement all of the functionality for the old taskbar, and since most of it has to be reimplemented from scratch, it’s not feasible to have a tool with a similar set of functionality in the short term. At the beginning it will only contain a small subset of the old options. Also, I might end up adding new tweaks which are only relevant for the new taskbar. With all this in mind, it makes sense to start fresh.

I played with the new taskbar a bit, and there are two scopes for possible tweaks:

  • Non-UI tweaks, which are about customizing code unrelated to the UI. Of the two, I’m much more familiar with tweaking these kinds of things. An example would be a tweak to close programs on middle click instead of creating a new instance – I don’t need to fiddle with the UI, I can just replace the new instance launching functionality with closing the target program. Actually, I’ve implemented it for the new taskbar and it works nicely.
  • UI tweaks, which are about customizing UI code. An example would be a tweak to get back labels on the taskbar. Being unfamiliar with the new UI framework that is used in the new taskbar, I need some time for research to even be able to estimate the difficulty of such tasks. The new UI framework might, or might not, make tweaks easier than for the old taskbar, but at this point I still don’t know how to approach it.

My plan is to start with non-UI tweaks, and at the same time explore the new UI at my spare time. I’ll try to prioritize the tweaks according to the users’ demand, ease of implementation, and my own interest.

  1. Anon says:

    Thank you for staying motivated! Good luck with the new developments, 7+ taskbar tweaker is one of the tools I wouldn’t use Windows without.

    • Bill Gates says:

      What really pisses me off is that Microsoft has an army of developers and none of them bother implementing features like this into the OS. In fact, they seem to be bent on worsening the vanilla experience, instead of improving it for everyone including power users.

      I cannot imagine my life without this utility. Each time it crashes due to a Windows update, l drop everything I’m doing and go here to look for a beta update. How can the corporate pinheads at MS not see its value is beyond me.

      • Steve Ballmer says:

        I so totally agree with this! It’s also the same with Explorer that still haven’t gotten any tabs, and the dark theme that despite have been there for quite many years now never have been complete. The task manager for example still shines bright white for a very unclear reason.

        • Sheryl says:

          I also agree!
          I cannot use Win 10 without 7-taskbar-tweaker.
          As a programmer that extensively uses the task bar, win 11 version of the task bar is an absolute no go!

          As far as win Explorer, yes, it is so old and awful.

          I highly recommend checking out XYPlorer !!

          OMG, XYPlorer should be standard. And on all operating systems.

          In fact a number of years back, I considered switching to Mac OS (at the time tools for AI work was easier to get working on Linux based systems.)
          One HUGE push on staying with Windows was that XYPlorer is only available on Windows! (Of course, I also did not want to loose/repurchase licenses for other software either.)

          But XYPlorer is a game changer.

          As is Classic Menu and 7+ Taskbar Tweaker !
          Microsoft really ought to incorporate, these utilities into Windows options. Or at least subsidize them.

          Anyway, Thanks RaMMicHaeL !! 🙂

      • Paul says:

        Microsoft is full of complete retards.. from top to bottom

        sure maybe % of them aren’t.. but they are mostly surrounded by retards

        you just can’t have nice things, only shit things.. pretty much sums at win11, nothing notable to praise, only notable regressions in ux …

        I wouldn’t even waste my time that is complete shit that is Win11 if it wasn’t for the ExplorerPatcher… what they’ve done to the taskbar and taskbar api should be grounds for sacking the entire departments involved in that dumbication.

  2. Konamiman says:

    No pressure, but I won’t upgrade to Windows 11 until 7+TT (or an equivalent program) is available for it 🙂 Thanks for not giving up!

    For me the most important feature is “cycle through windows on left click in combined item”, I guess that counts as one of the non-UI tweaks you mentioned?

  3. Carl says:

    As someone who jumped to Windows 11 on a whim, I like the new taskbar but do miss the customisations you made available on the old taskbr with 7+ Taskbar Tweaker. In particular the middle click to close, and volume via scroll-wheel. Thanks in advance in case you do end up implementing some Non-UI tweaks. In case you don’t, thank you for all your work in the past. Projects like this are what make the internet feel human and hopeful.

  4. Ryn says:

    我已经因为不能取消合并任务栏,并且无法兼容7+
    花了一天时间升级到了WIN11,又退回了WIN10。

  5. Hank says:

    As a long-time user, I look forward to anything you bring us. Windows 11 does need some tweaks to make it comparable to how useful your tool made the previous taskbar.

  6. kju says:

    Great news!

    Im using Explorer Patcher and it works as intended.

    Wish list for new software includes middle click to close and hover/scroll over taskbar to adjust system volume.

    Thanks!

  7. lucas says:

    that’s great news! i’m a long 7+TT user, i can’t imagine windows without this tweak. looking forward to see the WIN11 version of this awesome tool. take your time, as long you don’t let the project die.

    I kind like the new taskbar ( i have a ultra wide monitor and fells better all the icons in the middle of the screen) but having no-grouping and labels are the most important (on selected apps, not all, using taskbar inspector)

    well let’s hope you can find time to port at least some of the tweaks to the new taksbar.

    cheers mate

  8. Troik says:

    I do like the new taskbar, I’m even giving the centered look a chance. What I miss is starting the Taskmanager via the Context menu, but for now, I use the old CTRL-Shift-ESC Hotkey, that’s good enough for now. and I miss Desktop peeking, which they removed completely. Mainly used the tweaker to increase the peek area size.
    Thanks for kkeing us posted, looking forward to what’s possible

  9. Steven says:

    Mouse wheel volume control on taskbar is the feature I use most and can’t go without. I found a working replacement for now but will be switching back as soon as it’s supported. Keep up the great work!

  10. aubai says:

    Benutze StartAllBack von startisback Homepage, da kann man die alte Taskleiste einstellen. Mit der Beta Version von hier funktioniert alles.

  11. duk6046 says:

    Great job! now works well a Drag group with right click

  12. Tom says:

    https://www.startallback.com/ can show labels on the taskbar

  13. Gaurav says:

    It is such a huge relief that we have two solutions, not just one to fix the awful Windows 11 taskbar. Both Explorer Patcher (free, open source) and StartAllBack (very cheap, proprietary) can bring back 100% of the lost functionality as long as the classic Taskbar code is still left intact.

    Then 7+ Taskbar Tweaker does its magical fixes. 🙂 So far all my advanced and UI settings in 7+TT seem to work, once the classic Taskbar is enabled with either of these two projects. Thank you for continuing to support your wonderful app for so many years.

    Things were looking were bleak in July-August but then these two products fixed everything for now. The next big painful challenge will be if/when Microsoft removes the old Taskbar code entirely. Then someone will have to create a full replacement with their own code from scratch (like Classic Shell did for the Start Menu) or reverse engineer the Microsoft’s code and put it back (like StartIsBack did for the Windows 7 Start menu).

  14. Gaurav says:

    With the classic taskbar revived by ExplorerPatcher, if the icons are made larger with 7+TT by doing w10_large_icons=1, then the icons on the taskbar are blurred/scaled incorrectly. Here’s a screenshot:

    https://i.imgur.com/nDUkBdI.png

  15. sccs says:

    Thank you!!!

  16. CATSUPERBERG says:

    Thank you for a great tool. For me there is 3 significant features I’m now missing without working 7+TT: ability to disable combining buttons; control volume with mousewheel and opening taskbar by middle clicking empty space at taskbar.
    Hope those features could be implemented for new taskbar.

  17. Working fine with StartAllBack, not only can you get a vertical taskbar again, but no_width_limit from 7TT still works!

    I’m using an ultrawide monitor, so a horizontal taskbar is a massive waste of space, especially given how tall the new one is. If you do decide to start hacking the Win11 taskbar, then bringing back the option to have it narrow and vertical would be my priority, though I do realise this is likely an enormous undertaking and probably not feasible.

    In the meantime, here’s hoping MS don’t break the old taskbar implementation when 22H1 comes out!

    • Fluff Patrol says:

      Microsoft announced they have now switched to only a yearly update so for both Win10 and Win11 it will be 21H2, 22H2, 23H2, etc

  18. factor says:

    So I started using startallback to get back the uncombined taskbar items but that doesn’t solve one of the main problems from the original win10 taskbar where I can’t reorder apps within the groups!

    Is there a way that 7taskbartweaker could work when startallback is enabled?

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      Please try the beta version, it should work.

      • factor says:

        You’re absolutely right, I should have read your whole post!

        Feel free to delete this thread.

      • Andrey says:

        Hi!

        How hard is it to implement this feature for the new taskbar? It is the primary reason to use this tweaker for me ))

        And it seems that the new taskbar doesn’t allow to cycle active window in the group in a loop with a keyboard shortcut (or was it this tweaker feature too?🤔)

        I’ve noticed that in the initial post about compatibility the area with preview popups is marked as unchanged.

        • RaMMicHaeL says:

          Hi Andrey,

          How hard is it to implement this feature for the new taskbar?

          I’ll find out when I’ll get to it, I think that it shouldn’t be too hard, but not too easy either.

          And it seems that the new taskbar doesn’t allow to cycle active window in the group in a loop with a keyboard shortcut

          I don’t know, I’m still not familiar enough with Windows 11. In Windows 10, it was possible without the tweaker by holding the Ctrl key, and there was also a registry setting for enabling it by default.

          I’ve noticed that in the initial post about compatibility the area with preview popups is marked as unchanged.

          Yes, the thumnails’ UI wasn’t reimplemented from scratch, but still, many things around it were changed.

          • Andrey says:

            Thank you for the reply!

            Clarification:

            it was possible without the tweaker by holding the Ctrl key

            I am talking about a bit different feature – when you press “Win + number” shortcut, before it was possible to switch from the last open window to the first one (and vise versa). Right now it just stops on the last element.

  19. Kyrex says:

    I would really appreciate if you could add an option to change the icons to their smaller size, since Windows is missing that toggle on the taskbar settings now. I use a vertical taskbar with the no_width_limit option, but I want it as small as possible.
    I’ve been doing it on my computers with the registry key, but it’s a pain in the arse…

    Thank you for your work!

  20. Gaurav says:

    Hi I am posting a compatibility issue with StartAllBack’s jumplists but I am not sure if this is something to fix in 7+TT or SAB. In StartAllBack (https://www.startallback.com/), Taskbar page, there is an option “Use enhanced classic jumplists”. This enables Windows 7/8.1 style jumplists with right click and drag taskbar button towards center of the screen gesture. After that, Shift+right click shows the window menu as is the standard Windows behavior.

    But if 7+TT is loaded and the option is set show Standard window menu with right click, it still shows jumplists and Shift+right click does nothing. Is it possible to make 7+TT work with this feature of SAB?

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      What happens is that the subclass function of StartAllBack is called before the subclass function of the tweaker, and so the tweaker is not able to affect StartAllBack’s behavior. The order of subclass function calls is not specified/guaranteed.

      I can find a tweak for it, but instead of me tweaking other customization tools, I think it’s best for StartAllBack to handle it, since the whole “classic jumplists” functionality is provided by it.

      • Gaurav says:

        I see! Thank you for taking a look at it. I will try my best to get the developer of StartAllBack to fix it. I reported it to him but since then he has put out a new version without the necessary fix. I will prompt him again. 🙂 Again, thank for the technical details which give us ordinary users some clue about the problem.

      • Gaurav says:

        Well Tihiy’s stance on this was “Well then don’t use classic/standard window menu then”. 🙄🙄

  21. lee says:

    thx, i suffered black weird bar in file explore. after following this and 7+ beta it fixed. however i can’t see time and internet. and even battery status in right side of task bar. can you tell me how to uninstall and go back to original one?

  22. Notim Portant says:

    This is probably gonna be an unpopular opinion but hear me out there.

    I feel like these kind of user experience enhancing programs aimed for new Windows versions are either should be never supported for Windows 11, or should be sold at some rather expensive prices if it is gonna eventually happen.

    One of the reasons these new Windows versions get widespread usage is that because someone, somewhere, eventually finds a way to get rid of this crap.

    And with the recent breakages, it is clear that Microsoft simply hates people who wants to use their OS in a personalized way. Why should any developer constantly put up with this? It is like an uphill battle without a win in the clear sight for the side who fights against the soldiers on the top of the hill.

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      One of the reasons these new Windows versions get widespread usage is that because someone, somewhere, eventually finds a way to get rid of this crap.

      I don’t have data to back it up, but I don’t think that it’s true. I think that the majority of Windows users just get used to what’s available, and many don’t even notice any difference. Us, the minority who cares, are left with several options, such as keeping to use an old Windows version, getting used to the changes like the rest, or find workarounds like the tweaker.

      Of course, it depends on how bad the breakage is. That’s why Microsoft brought back the start menu after Windows 8, and that’s why Microsoft is talking about bringing back the vertical taskbar. But I won’t be surprised if less popular customization options will never be re-implemented.

      • Notim Portant says:

        Good point, I had written my comment when I was frustrated with it.

        But still, this all feels like an abusive relationship lol.

        I honestly hope for a better way outta this.

  23. Ivan says:

    Thanks! It’s the best solution for me!

  24. Tony says:

    Thanks, 7+ Taskbar Tweaker working great once ExplorerPatcher is installed. The one minor issue for me is that I have to manually run the 7+ Taskbar Tweaker application each time booting up the computer, even when the run at startup option is enabled.

    Perhaps the taskbar tweaker is running before ExplorerPatcher is loaded during the startup process?

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      It should just work. Even if it was the case, the tweaker should sit in the tray and wait for explorer to initialize.

      Make sure that the checkbox to run the tweaker at startup is enabled in the settings, and that the startup item is not disabled in Task Manager (the Startup tab).

  25. Timothy says:

    If you make a 11 Taskbar Tweaker, I am there and more than happy to donate to help offset the work for critical features. Critical being things like getting non-combined buttons again (if it’s even possible). Anyway, this work around is awesome! Hopefully it can hold us over until the new shell code is better understood and features can be implemented again.

    I see nothing wrong with letting go of some of the old features that were left over from the Win7 days. It’s been a long time and things change. There are new priorities and possibly cool new tweaks we never even though of before that may be possible (who knows).

    Thanks again and just point us in the direction for more donations, subscriptions, bounty — however you think you might want to monetize all the work this is going to take. You deserve it! Meanwhile, I’ll chip in a few more bucks in the existing donation link. 🙂

  26. Ken says:

    How do you activate the ExplorerPatcher project that lets you use the windows 10 taskbar on windows 11 ;-;

  27. ChuChu Okeke says:

    A new hope has come. However, I think I’ll wait it out until the allure of Windows Subsystem for Android overpowers me or setting the Calendar events from the W11 flyout is reinstated and…. I am still protecting W10. It is the last version of Windows and is endangered.

  28. ChuChu Okeke says:

    I wish 7+ Tasbask Tweaker could work seamlessly with Battery Mode: I want to scroll Battery Mode icon and get brightness control and scroll the Volume icon to get volume control. Is this possible?

  29. ChuChu Okeke says:

    I’m also using T-Clock Redux on my Taskbar, does this work with Explorer Patcher for Windows 11?

    • lucas says:

      it works. i tested on a virtual machine win11 + allstartback and explorer patcher
      but clicking on the hour/date doesn’t open calendar unfortunately and some other options too. for me just be able to change the font and look of he hour/date is enough

      • ChuChu Okeke says:

        Thanks for the info, it’s nice to knw what works on W11. increasing the clock font and color change..how can microsoft like their own designs..yuck..lol

      • ChuChu Okeke says:

        So Microsoft want us to set calendar appointments from the widget flyout? Maybe the clock will open the widget flyout in W11 at some point. additional mouse clicks and mouse movement incoming. I just saw a notification to upgrade to W11. at least it has the options to hide for now. how about hide for 3 years?

      • Zementblock says:

        Great to hear that the same combination of tools I’m using as well still works. 🙂

        https://i.ibb.co/NLrj5Vb/Clipboard-Image.png

  30. Falconn says:

    Eager to have the release for Win11. I will legit buy it. I’ve used 7+ for years and I got so used to it that I really miss it. The middle-mouse click to close, as made me open a lot of new instances on Win11 or any other PC that did not use 7+.

    Thanks for going through the effort.

    Much love.

  31. Gaurav says:

    I just updated to 7+TT 5.12.1 on Windows 10 and found that now the good old context menu/standard window menu is entirely broken and inaccessible if StartIsBack’s Windows 7 style jumplists are enabled.

    In the earlier version, it worked ideally. If set to “Standard window menu” it still showed that menu and Shift+right click or dragging the left button up towards the center of the screen showed the SIB jumplist.

    Moved back to 7+TT 5.11.3.0 as it’s the last version where it works as I want. All versions released recently (October 2021 and onwards) take away the option of showing either window menu or SIB jumplist. Then I may as well live with the ugly Windows 11/10 style native jumplists since context menu is way more important to me than SIB/SAB jumplist.

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      I have an idea as of why that happened. I did some changes to make it easier to support Windows 11 with the old taskbar, changes which should have no effect for the tweaker alone, but can cause incompatibilities with third party customization tools (as any change can). My previous comment applies.

  32. Andy says:

    Good afternoon!
    The program is very good!
    Please add the option to change the start button.
    Thank you and good luck!

  33. Lorna M says:

    When I added the patch to windows 11 it removed the clock and sound icons from the far right of my taskbar and I can’t seem to find a way of putting them back. Please help. Thanks

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      From the readme of Explorer Patcher:

      Important! As you may notice, the usual system tray icons are not enabled by default. To enable them, open the GUI (Win+X and choose “Enable missing system tray icons”).

      • Lorna M says:

        Thank you I’ve just done that but sadly still unable to use 7+ tweaker. I’ve downloaded older versions and the new beta but sadly won’t work on my windows 11

        • RaMMicHaeL says:

          What exactly doesn’t work? Have you been able to install Explorer Patcher and get the old taskbar? What happens when you run 7+ Taskbar Tweaker? Are you getting an error message? Do some options work, or none of them work?

          • Lorna M says:

            Yes got the old taskbar but I thought the patch was for making 7+ tweaker to work with windows 11. Did I get that wrong? There is one part of that program that I really likes which was to stop the thumbnail popping over when I hover over an icon on the tray. I’ve tried using the computer management and untick the ‘enable peak’ but it doesn’t work on windows 11 either.. Sorry to be a pain

            • RaMMicHaeL says:

              Yes got the old taskbar

              Great.

              I thought the patch was for making 7+ tweaker to work with windows 11

              That’s right.

              In order for me to help you, try answering the questions I asked:

              What happens when you run 7+ Taskbar Tweaker? Are you getting an error message? Do some options work, or none of them work?

              • Lorna M says:

                When I try to use 7+ tweaker a pop up says that ‘7+ tweaker wasn’t found (904)’
                I don’t know how to add a screenshot here to show you

                • RaMMicHaeL says:

                  This message means that you’re still using the new taskbar. Please check again that you have installed Explorer Patcher correctly.

                  Also, I suspect that you have been playing with the compatibility settings, can it be the case? If you did, there’s no need to do that and it’s not helpful. If you didn’t, perhaps the system applied them automatically due to the numerous failures.

                  • Lorna M says:

                    Oh yes I didn’t think about the compatibility settings. I’ll have to try that but no the patch is working great for the old taskbar back .
                    Thank you sweetheart for your kind assistance I’m truly grateful. I don’t wish to be a pain I’ll work it out somehow.

  34. Snoozer says:

    Hello. I really like 7+ Taskbar Tweaker, especially while I can control the volume with scrolling mouse wheel over the notification bar. Can you do the same for controlling the brightness?
    Thank you in advance. 🙂

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      Hi,
      Thank you for the feature request. I have more pressing things I’m working on right now, but I’ll keep your suggestion in mind.

      • Erik says:

        … scroll Battery Mode icon and get brightness control and scroll the Volume icon to get volume control. Is this possible?

        … control the volume with scrolling mouse wheel over the notification bar. Can you do the same for controlling the brightness?

        I’m in favor of this proposal. Right now a little disturbing when both volume and brightness change at the same time …

        Thanks for your hard work with 7+ Taskbar Tweaker.

  35. dums says:

    Why not integrate explorerpatcher into 7 + taskbar tweakerr? Now I need to install both startallback and 7 + taskbar tweakerr, and most of the functions in startallback are completely useless to me, just need to getting back the old taskbar in Windows 11.

  36. aubai says:

    Gibt es schon eine Testversion für Windows 11 Taskleiste ?

  37. Lil Tee says:

    Hello RaMMicHaeL,
    I am very looking forward to hearing from you release version for Windows 11.
    All I need is only option: Never combine taskbar buttons & showing label.
    Thank you very much for your work.

  38. lucas says:

    I found the best combination so far. Stardock Start11 (paid) + ExplorerPatcher + 7+TT

    i have centered icons (including start button), start menu windows 11 or 10 style and 7+TT features (like don’t group, no labels, etc)

    So far everything is working OK together

  39. freedrome says:

    It feels like hustling tiringly underwater without the 7+taskbar tweaker on win11. The folder grouping and the inability to open files on drag and drop on program’s icons is KILLING me, and my time…
    Thank you RaMMicHaeL for all your time and efforts. And please make it paid, I want to pay for your time and efforts involved. thanks

  40. Paul says:

    Can you make a quick update to add the [mmb] to close taskbar items.. it was literally the most used feature by far with 7 taskbar tweaker for me…. sadly nothing else for win10/11 even adds just that basic support.. let alone those fucking clueless retards at Microshit.

      I should have read the whole post.. didn’t think it was working yet.. but 7 tweaker works mostly works in win11 and the much needed [mmb] to close task is working great.

      I still say Microsoft are fucking idiots for having this stuff implemented as options already though.

    This program, I love it so much. And it stays with us on Win11.
    It feels like I’m using this for a decade now. 🙂
    Thanks so much for your hard work, RaMMicHaeL! Highly appreciated.

    Sorry if this is an inappropriate place to post my query. Is there a forum?

    I made some settings changes during a discussion about taskbar icons elsewhere. Now I cannot restore what I had before. Neither in Win 10 pro settings or Taskbar Tweaker. Specifically, I want the Light option for all my folders etc, but black (or the dark blue I had for years up to a few hours ago) for the taskbar.

    I have a strange problem on Windows 11 with 7+.
    I have Windows Terminal as my default terminal and I have 2 tasks in the task scheduler that run at 2am at the morning which open a wt cmd window.
    If am awake, I have no problem closing the windows, even one hour after they were opened.
    When I’m sleeping and I’m back at 9am, the two windows are open and when I press any key to close them, the windows turn white and unresponsive. When I close the first one, it takes some time to be able to use Windows until it recovers from what happened. When I move the mouse, it makes strange “beeps”.
    This only happens if 7+ is running.

      I’ve never heard of such an issue before. Perhaps there’s some kind of a memory leak or other resource leak. Also, perhaps the issue be caused by Explorer Patcher and not 7+ Taskbar Tweaker. If it’s definitely 7+ Taskbar Tweaker, does the issue happen when all options are off? If not, can you try to deduce which option causes it?

    Hi is there a timeline to the release of 11 Taskbar Tweaker?

    Using StartAllBack I was able to bring the taskbar to almost what I want.
    But 2 features still missing- The ability to hide the Start Button. And the ability to hide the “show desktop” button.

    StartAllBack is also paid while this tweaker is not. So 11 Taskbar Tweaker is really preferred.

    No pressure. Work on it as long as long as you like. Just give us a timeline so we don’t have to check for it regularly ourselves 🙂

    thank you very much for creating such an amazing tool : 7+

    i can tell everyone loudly that :
    .. without 7+ compatible with win 11, i will just stay in win 10.

    7+ seems a little tiny software, but its impact is astonishingly enormous!

    please keep up this great masterpiece.

    thanks a lot to you, developer 🙂

  46. Got one small but annoying bug. I use a vertical taskbar with no_width_limit set plus small icons and my taskbar shrunk to 32px wide. On Win11 this reduced width is never remembered on boot, where on Win10 (with the same version of 7tt) the size is remembered.

    Also for some reason I can’t just resize the taskbar down to 32px in one go, first attempt I’m limited to 40ish, then 35ish and finally 32 on the third go. This also happened on Win10 but wasn’t really an issue because it remembered the size.
