Taskbar customization with Windows 7!

29 Mar
Did you know that you can customize your taskbar with Windows 7?  Here’s what my Windows 7 taskbar currently looks like:
Each of the buttons on the taskbar represent a program that I can access with just one click.  You can customize your taskbar by pinning the programs that you would like to see there.  To pin a program to the taskbar:
  • Left click on the Start button in the bottom left-hand corner of your screen circled in red below:
In the Start Menu or under "All Programs," locate the program you wish to pin to your taskbar.  From this point, here are two ways to pin to your taskbar:
  • Right click on the program you wish to pin.  A menu will appear.  Left click on "Pin to Taskbar"


  • Left click and hold the left click on the program which you wish to pin.  While holding your left click, drag the program down on top of the taskbar.  When the program is hovering over the taskbar, release the left click. 

You can also rearrange the order of the buttons on the taskbar.  To do this:

  • Left click and hold the left click on the button you would like to move, then drag the button to where you would like to place it.  Release the left click to drop it there.

You can customize these buttons even more by accessing the Start Menu and Taskbar Properties window.  To access this window, right click on your taskbar.  Then, left click on Properties. 

The below menu will appear.  Customize your taskbar buttons further via the red circled option:


You can also put your taskbar on any side of your screen via the below red circled option in the same menu:
