7 Taskbar Tweaker Hooks and Overwrites Windows Taskbar Settings
If you haven’t noticed, when you right click on running program shown in taskbar, the menu now looks nicer and has a nice fading effect when the menu shows. However the menu shows above the taskbar which is sometimes annoying if you want to close the Window which you have to move the cursor up a little to make sure that the close window is being selected and to click on it. Other feature is when you middle click on a program in taskbar, it will launch a new program instance.
7 Taskbar Tweaker is able to change all those settings such as restoring back the right click on program at taskbar to standard window menu, change the middle click to either close or focus window, disable grouping, dropping an icon to taskbar will open with instead of pinning, disabling thumbnail preview and left click on grouped button to cycle through windows.
This tweaker was created and tested to work with Windows 7 RTM 7600 Ultimate only. So far everything works except for dropping which by default pins the program but changing it to Open with doesn’t show the open with window.
7 Taskbar Tweaker works by hooking the windows api, overwriting taskbar settings but the changes is not permanent. Once you exit the program, all the taskbar changes reverts back to default. If you like this small little tool to do the job, it sits in system tray and takes up only 1MB of memory.
