Publisher's Description

Taskbar Shuffle is a small and simple program, that add a handy new functionality to your Windows taskbar - it enables you to rearrange the taskbar buttons by simply dragging them around. This feature can be quite useful if the order and arrangement of your taskbar buttons is of importance to you. Makes you wonder why the taskbar did not come with this feature in the first place.

I love this application, however... I cannot get it to work on my new pc which runs vista.

It worked fine with no tweaking on my old machine which ran xp.
I read on another forum that only the 32bit version worked for vista.
I tried that but no change.

I am probably doing something wrong, but cannot figure what it is.
Appreciate any help to fix this.
This is a great little tool.
Thank you.

An excellent little utility that can also move stuff in the tray area. The only thing that I don't really like is it's 9MB memory footprint. I mean, for what it does this is kinda WAY too much.

An alternative is Taskix: http://taskix.robustit.com/ . Takes up only 1.6mb.

Thirty seconds after installing this program, I'm giving it 5 stars. Great idea and works perfectly (so far!). I especially like the idea of middle-clicking a window in the taskbar to close that program, rather than rightclicking and then selecting close. This will probably become one of those programs that are completely indispensible and one of the first things I'll wind up installing on a brand new machine (along with Shove-It [http://www.phord.com/shoveit.html])

Taskbar Shuffle is a great program that allows flexibility on the Taskbar.

You can move around icons in the system tray and on the taskbar itself.

Why didn't Microsoft think about that feature in it's Windows products yet ?

This is a great product and it's freeware, so why don't try it and see it for yourself ?

I did and I must say, I like this program very much.

I have vista ultimate. The authors website says this runs on vista also and it does without a problem.

Great little utility that should have been in win95.

I bet this program works perfectly on modern systems. Though it claims to work on Windows 95 as well. OK, it partially works on 95. It allows me to rearrange the application iconized in the taskbar but while the program is running it prevents from launching any applications... so it makes a disaster!:-( moreover, if I try to rearrange the icons in the systray it causes explorer.exe to crash. And the author even forgot a setting: "start disabled" or "start Off". In the end I'm not interested in moving systray icons but I'd like so much that the developer made Taskbar Shuffle totally compatible with 95B as to I could re-arrange taskbar windows/apps. That'd be really useful for me and fun. Thanks!

Extremely useful for those who are annoyed by Firefox being before Total Commander on taskbar :-P
