Thread: Change the order of taskbar items...

    Default Change the order of taskbar items...

    Hi. I have eleven open items showing on my taskbar (browser windows, files,
    etc.). Is there a way to change the order that they appear on the taskbar so
    that all similar items are together- all Word docs, all Excel files and so
    on- without closing and reopening them in order?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Change the order? No, but you can go to the taskbar properties and tell it
    to 'group similar taskbar buttons'. Just right click the taskbar, choose
    properties and the option is on the first tab. They won't be sequential
    (side by side), they will stack.

    Hi Silas,

    Right click on the taskbar, choose *Properties* and on the taskbar
    properties there should be an option to Group similar items or similar,
    (am not on a Vista machine at the moment so cannot give exact wording
