Quoting myself:

"In fact, I’ve encountered this issue, but it happens so rarely (happened to me once or twice, literally) that it doesn’t really bother me.

I can’t do much with it as I can’t reproduce it.
Also, I’m not sure it’s the tweaker’s fault. If it happens often for you, you can experiment and see whether it happens without the tweaker running, or with it running with all options off."

You can't do that.

What you can do is group these icons together so they take less space: select them in taskbar inspector, right click and choose Change Application ID -> random_group_x.

If you think you can reproduce it on your PC, and has some spare time to run a custom build or two, please contact me so I can solve this issue.
I've got another couple of reports about this issue.
Everybody who experienced it so far is using a 64-bit OS.

A commenter on YouTube said he managed to solve it by installing the tweaker to a different path.

I, meanwhile, couldn't reproduce it, and I have no idea what causes the issue.
If you can reproduce it on your PC, please contact me. Thanks!
Do you get any error message? Or is it just loading forever?

The issue was introduced in v4.1.7, and was fixed in v4.1.8.


Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi Adam,


I use this option quite often on my PC (Windows 8 64-bit), and it works every time. One exception is when the active window belongs to an elevated process, like regedit.

I can't do much without a way to reproduce it. Try to notice what window is focused when the issue appears. Other than this, maybe one of your other applications conflicts with the tweaker.

Done in v4.1.7.

The tweaker detects whether the setup folder requires admin rights, and runs the update elevated in such case.

Note that installing to a folder which requires admin rights isn't fully supported. In order to install 7TT in such a folder, you must manually run the setup elevated. In order to uninstall it, you must manually run the uninstaller elevated, too. If you forget, it will just quietly half-uninstall.

It would be nice to fix that and make a proper setup which supports Program Files and such, but NSIS is too much PITA for that.


This is a situation where two opposite "always do" options are turned on - never show labels for gimp, and always show labels for decombined items. One of them must win.
Until now it was the latter.

I made it so that it would depend on the global labeling configuration:
If your taskbar configuration is "Always combine, hide labels", never show labels for X wins. Otherwise, always show labels for decombined items wins.

In short, it's fixed in v4.1.7 :)
