    Top utility: Taskbar Shuffle

    If you are one of those twisted people who will close applications then reopen them in a different order just to get the taskbar entries in the right order, then fret no more. Just download Taskbar Shuffle and save literally minutes of your life.

    Or is that just me?

    no, I think it's just you!

    Here's another application to create a solution to a problem that didn't exist until the solution was found!

    I'm with AJ on this one... I have to have things open in a certain order, and will close things to shuffle them.

    You're not alone AJ, that's two of us who are obsessively compulsive about our taskbar orderings!!!

    Yep, me too It's most annoying when the left-most app crashes and you have to close other programs to get it to the left again. Thanks for the link

    Maybe it's OCTMD - Obsessive Compulsive Tasbar Management Disorder.

    In my own defence thought I would point out that I no longer have any difficulty walking on the cracks in the pavement.

    Re: Top utility: Taskbar Shuffle

    Thankyou! Great app

    Im another one who has to have Outlook open first, then admin tools mmc, then firefox, then everything else

    One thing, when I installed that program it said it strongly recommends turning off 'group similar taskbar buttons' - is there any reason why? I like having them grouped

    Re: Top utility: Taskbar Shuffle

    It probably cannot move them or may break it when moving them about? I haven't the need for grouping having multi-monitors both with double layer taskbars so plenty of room for them

    Re: Top utility: Taskbar Shuffle

    I'm another non-grouper. I usually drag my start bar up a row or two to make room for all the apps. This also gives you more space for QuickLaunch, which I use quite a lot.

    Re: Top utility: Taskbar Shuffle

    I'm a non-grouper, but I totally don't care what order my taskbar apps come in. A quick glance soon deciphers which is which.

    Well, someone's got to stick up for StewartKnight!

    Re: Top utility: Taskbar Shuffle

    With only having a screen capable of 1024x768 (Not complaining though, it's a superb 15" Samtron 52v) I only have limited space - no room for double-height taskbars or extended quick launches for me 8). That's why I have my start menu organised in groups - everything is a quick Windows key and a couple of letters away. (Or Windows, Letter, Enter if it's the top entry)

    Only when the titles are short enough to fit in the space allocated on the taskbar. Not always the case. Some apps are so egotistical that they like to have their own name in the title bar ahead of any document name or whatever.
