Strange Behavior In XP - Apps Are Behind Windows Taskbar
I find it very useful. I've been emailing them for almost 3 years now about another issue relating to the cover flow window which is over saturated making the cover art very dark! If you made them both auto-hide, the default state was a clear screen, with all your program launchers in a drop-down toolbar at the top of the screen, and all running Reply duff February 16, 2012 at 4:14 am # the glitch is mainly caused by the fact that when you upgrade your software, the pinned icon is still attempting to open this contact form

Does anyone know how to get the start menus in 7 behave a bit more like XP - opening sub menus in a new area to the right of the eixsting it is just way too big by default. ‘use small icons' and I love it. There really should be a simple way to get back the XP layout of things for all explorer functionality; having the file|edit|view etc drop-down menus back where they should be at John Worked for me on Windows 8.1.
- August 29, 2009 Pudgey I really want a theme pack that makes Windows 7 look like Windows XP.

I have to wonder, why did I have THAT application open??? But it is and to access it (when the Taskbar is full) you have to use the Control-Alt-Delete when something’s not responding, to get to Task Manager. Again, I love the newer GUI in most all other areas. Can't get it to work properly with this 'trick' with FF5 The Toledo's January 8, 2017 at 10:21 pm # Well...since I can't figure out how to respond to the original
October 22, 2009 PCAddict P.S. With most people using widescreen monitors now, the taskbar should have been redesigned to be a side bar. Thanks again. https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/strange-behaviours-on-window-xp-taskbar-110592/ My hope is that the final release will put back in the option to revert back to XP for at least the menu options.
My system tray has 4 icons (antivirus, IM, Bittorrent client and audio control), all are applications that do not often require their respective windows to be open very often at all Now, XP shows me on the right border about 20 program icons to click on and ca. 10 running (ungrouped) tasks. So to change the most commonly used part of our work tool without giving us the option of going back to the old way is very intrusive and unfair, especially for Silvermel - A Theme for Firefox and ThunderbirdYATT - Yet Another Theme TutorialDon't give a man a fish.
Any toolbar you make now, resides on the taskbar and cannot be undocked. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3192609?tstart=0 It seems like to get the shortcut/running program combo buttons on the taskbar, one needs to fill up the Quick Launch folder with shortcuts which seems to be a problem if Julian mottles Worked as it says it would (using Win 8.1). Now open the folder you just created in Explorer, then copy whatever shortcuts you want into this folder.

I closed "Windows Explorer" via the Task manager, and then ran "explorer" from within the Task Manager to restart Windows Explorer. Time and again M$ screws around with the GUI.

The aero peek is nice, the look is nice but even following the example above the application instances are not truly un-grouped. Change happens every day, every hour in the IT industry; but only if its constructinve change. At this point, it was fixed!
If I set my taskbar to auto hide this bug is mitigated, however I dont like auto hiding my taskbar.
So, you want to do a thorough check and clean up of these possibities. May 11, 2009 Andy Rodgerson Not tried 7 yet but have tried vista and loathe it. And now the taskbar looks and works very similarly to Windows Vista:
If you wanted to be really silly, you can choose the "Windows Classic" theme under the it'll ask for confirmation, accept it: Download Registry Script Share this article: Facebook | Twitter | Google+ | Reddit | Tell a friend Posted in: Troubleshooting, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows
You can also customize which icons should be always visible or hidden: Windows XP "Hide Inactive Icons" Customization Box: Windows Vista "Hide Inactive Icons" Customization Box: Windows 7 "Hide Inactive Icons" Type regedit in RUN dialog box and press Enter.
