Q: Which registry keys does 7+ Taskbar Tweaker modify? I don’t need extra processes in my system.
A: The only registry keys the tweaker modifies are its own settings. There are no registry keys for the options it provides. The tweaker does that by injecting a DLL to explorer, hooking/subclassing/some other methods of the dark side.
As for extra processes, the tweaker is a native program, and is very lightweight. It shouldn’t slow down your system, and uses an extremely small amount of memory. Also, you can hide the tray icon if you want.

In case you want to remove the tweaker’s settings from the registry, look for them here:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\7 Taskbar Tweaker
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run (“7 Taskbar Tweaker” value)

P.S. if you’re a programmer, you might want to take a look at the 7+ Taskbar Tweaking Library.

Q: My antivirus complains about 7+ Taskbar Tweaker.
A: It’s a false positive. I guarantee that the tweaker binaries (and any other files on this site, unless specifically noted) are 100% clean.
Also remember that the tweaker injects into explorer and modifies its memory, which is indeed suspicious.

Q: Can I Group/Combine/Label only some of the items on the taskbar?
A: Yes, use Taskbar Inspector.

Q: Can I use 7+ Taskbar Tweaker in a commercial environment?
A: Yes, feel free to use it wherever you want.

Q: Where is the portable version?
A: When installing the tweaker, choose the Portable type of install, as shown on the image below.
The portable version will be extracted to the selected folder.


Note: If the tweaker is already installed on your computer, the option won’t be visible. You can launch the setup with the /portable command line switch to force a portable installation.

Q: I want to report a bug/suggest a feature! What is the best way to do it?
A: Post it on the UserEcho page.

Q: I want to translate 7+ Taskbar Tweaker to my language.
A: The archive below contains the files needed to be translated.
Please read readme.txt before proceeding.

    I saw there is an option named “disable_taskbar_transparency” in advanced options.
    I wonder is there some way to make the taskbar transparent 100%? Could you do some little updates? Thanks very much!!

  2. Eric says:

    Is it currently broken? Mine has just stopped working.

    Open the interface and everything is light grey, cannot click anything.

    Original settings are not working, ie. scroll sound volume and enlarge the show window space (bottom right)

    Hi, Ram
    7+ tweaker has stopped working properly for me on latest windows update 20H2 (KB4592438). While it hides windows button, taskbar does not become slimmer when PC is restarted.

    Hi Ram –

    I downloaded the latest version on my new computer, a Dell Inspiron 7000 and the jump list is not working. I’m still seeing all my documents in little boxes instead of list form.

    Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, rebooting, etc.

    Thank you for this awesome app! Been using for many years.

    Win+D causes the taskbar to disappear when disable_topmost is set to 2. Is there a way to fix this?
