Ability to run application or (even better) trigger a media button on clicking on empty taskbar space

varez 8 years ago updated 2 years ago 10

Like in title.

I'd like to be able to middle (or double) click on empty taskbar space to trigger a media key (to play/pause music) or to run specified application (to use external application to play/pause music). I've read help file, found no option to do that. Shouldn't be too hard to implement.

Thanks :)

It's possible with 7+ Taskbar Tweaker v5.0 using the Mouse Button Control advanced options, although it's not too straightforward.
Let's assume that we want to launch explorer every time we hold Ctrl and left-click the taskbar. Here's how it can be done:
  • Add the shortcut to the Advanced Options editor, and set the data to an unassigned value, e.g. 1000.
  • Hold Ctrl and left-click the taskbar (or use the click that you have set). If it was done correctly, Notepad will be launched.
  • Open regedit and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\7 Taskbar Tweaker\Strings. You'll see the cmdline_1000 value, where 1000 is your number. The value data will be notepad.exe, which is the default command line generated by the tweaker.
    If you're using the portable version, look for the value in the .ini file.
  • Set this value to the command line you'd like to be launched for the click that you have assigned. In our case, the new command line will be explorer.exe.

Windows 7 vertical taskbar with mutiple columns like in XP

If using left or right side taskbar, then Windows 7 misses the feature to have multiple columns when lots of applications are open. I really hope this feature an be added.


7 + Taskbar Tweaker gives an error message after updating Windows 10 to the new 2004 version

JimP 6 months ago updated by RaMMicHaeL 4 months ago 12

I restored to the previous version of Windows. Uninstalled 7+Taskbar Tweaker, then reupgraded to 2004. No error message. Reinstalled 7+Taskbar Tweaker and got the same error message at the end of the install before running 7+.

For Win8.1U1: New option to always show/always hide labels for all Windows Store Apps on the taskbar

Anonymous 7 years ago 0
If you check the new option in Win8.1U1, that Windows Store Apps should be shown on the Taskbar and you activate the option to show all labels in the taskbar properties. I'd like to change the behavior of the Windows Store Apps seperately so that I can make these labels to be hidden, while the other stay visible.
(And no, I don't want to manually change the behavior of every App with the Taskbar Inspector.)

I hope that there is an attribute that you can grab all WinStoreApps easily. I saw in the Taskbar Inspector that (maybe all) WinStoreApps have an exclamation mark in its AppID.

Thanks for your attention RaMMicHaeL :)

multi-monitor features - drag between monitors, pinning and tray icons on secondary monitors

Anonymous 7 years ago updated 2 years ago 4

Great program, and heres a few multi-monitor suggestions.

It would be nice if i could drag a window to another monitor, by dragging its taskbar icon over to the other taskbar (w8/8.1). And possibly allowing icons to be pinned to secondary taskbars (via dragged from the primary)

Also if theres a way to add the notification area to other taskbars, I would love to have it included. (dedicated topic here)

Mouse wheel volume control for a specific application instead of global

Anonymous 6 years ago updated by Stamimail 6 months ago 7
For example I want to use the mousewheel while over the
taskbar to change the volume of Windows Media Player. I don't know
exactly how difficult this would be but since it seems your existing
function already hooks into the Windows Volume Mixer, just for the
global sound rather than an individual program's volume, it doesn't
seem an unreasonable suggestion to me I think.

Combine/Decombine by Ctrl/Shift/Alt + Mouse Click

Stamimail 8 years ago updated 6 years ago 2

Now Combine/Decombine is done automatically and only about one group.

My request is to bring it to user selection.
The user could choose for each group to Combine/Decombine by choice.
