The Joys of Taskbar

The new Taskbar. At first I have to say I did not like the new Taskbar. Specifically, I hated the way it automatically combined Taskbar buttons. I'd be working along only to discover the button for the window I wished to access was no longer present. Then to get to the window I had to hover over the combined button and wait for the window previews to appear.

However, once I discovered I could turn the automatic combine function off, the new Taskbar was a joy to use.

Tips and Tricks

  • You can turn the Taskbars preference for combining buttons off in the Taskbar preference settings.
