Move order of windows in tool bar

I don’t think this is possible – but I’ll ask anyhow…

Are you able to change the order of windows opened in the toolbar – across the bottom of the PC? i.e. If I have Outlook open, and a couple of folders, and a few web pages – can I drag them or anything to change order?

Do you mean change the order they are displayed on the taskbar from left to right? If so this program "Taskbar Shuufle" will do it and it's free (click here) it works with Vista and XP, Windows 7 has the ability built in.

So Why do you want to do that? why not open them in the order you want them on the task bar

I've found with Vista that some programs don't stay where they are opened on the taskbar, Windows Explorer had a habit of moving from the first location on the taskbar to the end when accessing external USB drives, or more to the point when it had some problem accessing them. In my opinion Vista wasn't that good at dealing with USB in general. When you get used to having a program in one location it's a pain when it suddenly moves to another, and as far as I'm aware you have to shut every program down then re-open them in order again to get them back the way you had them.


I guess you're out of luck unless you ask your system administrator to install or allow you to install it.
