Separating Similar Windows From Each Other In The Taskbar?

Sep 15, 2014

So I have the option "Taskbar buttons" as "Never combine". So that is correct, they all show separately in the taskbar. So they may be next to each other, yet they Cannot be separated from being next to each other. I tend to drag Explorer windows (or open folders) in the taskbar to different locations. So whenever I have two folders open, and I drag one of them in the taskbar from the left side to the right side of all the other windows that are open, Both Explorer windows move together, yet I only wanted one of them to move to the right side, while the second one should stay where it was.

How can I separate similar windows from each other in the taskbar?

Maintenance :: Windows 8 File Explorer - Cannot Find Item And Similar Prompts

May 18, 2013

Windows 8 FILE EXPLORER has begun prompting me that it "can't find" or items "do not exist" when I try to manipulate the files in any manner. Of course they DO exist and oddly, if I repeat the command, the job gets done.

So...the functions seem to work, but I must repeat them and deal with this pesky prompt.

I am reluctant to use System Restore as I have made some time consuming changes to my OS since this problem started and do no suspect it will be successful.

scannow did not find any errors.

I use Firefox and am 64 bit.

Windows 8 - Taskbar Modifications?

Oct 10, 2013

Here's a picture of my Windows 8 taskbar, and is it possible to make the changes I'm looking for through registry hacks or through some program.


MS clearly neglects the vertical taskbar, and having the "Show Desktop" button on the bottom is really useless because I have to very carefully click the button now or else it is totally hidden behind the new start charm. The new Start button in 8.1 could in theory fix the problem except for the fact that you can't disable just the start charm. MS only allows you to turn off the top left and top right charms. Why would I want BOTH a button and the charm?

And why on earth would my icons be left aligned when every other taskbar icon is center aligned?

Windows 8.1 - Application Preview From Taskbar

Apr 13, 2014

Recently I installed latest Windows 8.1 update (Update 1/Spring update), and later latest Beta Nvidia driver. After that, an strange problem showed up. I recorded a video which represents it (look at the thumbnail 'hiding' under the previewed application ).

I'm using UxStyle and this theme: Windows 8.1 White Titlebar Dark theme by x0lis on deviantART . I tried:

Uninstalling UxStyle and themeInstalling 'normal' Nvidia driverDoing sfc /scannow but it didn't find anything particular (something about prncacla.inf, but I don't think that this causes this problem)Scanning system with antivirus (KIS 2014)Turning off and on option 'Enable preview' in Advanced setting -> PerformanceChanging theme to otherSearching about this in Google and this forum, but I didn't find anything similar but nothing worked.

Well I didn't tried uninstalling Update 1, but I would like to avoid that.

Taskbar Appears On Metro Windows

Aug 14, 2014

After a recent Windows update I now have the desktop taskbar appearing when I go into Metro apps. It's annoying because it often hides some on screen info.

I prefer not to use the "auto hide" option and I have not enabled the "Show Windows Store apps on the taskbar" option.

Windows 8 - Folder On Taskbar Won't Maximize

Oct 17, 2014

I have a windows 8 laptop and have been transferring files from my laptop to my Google drive. I have done this before without any problems, however when I try and click this minimised folder it won't expand or become more viewable (though I can hover over it with my mouse).

I am using dual screens (one TV and my laptop, expanding view onto both of these) so have tried switching back to just using my laptop to expand the folder but no joy. I have right clicked on the folder when I hover over it (see attachments, 2nd one are the options I see when I right click on the hovering folder) but any of these options just revert me back to the desktop and don't open the folder.

Windows 8.1 - Taskbar Not Showing When Alt-tab Out Of Game

May 18, 2014

I recently converted to Windows 8(.1) from 7. When I had seven I'd play games in windowed (borderless) mode and tab out to my other monitor. It left behind a taskbar at the bottom overlaying the game I was previously on. I found this actually kinda useful. Now in Windows 8 it only shows if I tab to a program on the same monitor as the game, and not if I tab to a program on my other monitor. Is there any way to change this?

Taskbar / Desktop And Windows Become Unclickable

Aug 11, 2014

I've had a Windows 8.1 laptop (Acer) for a couple of months now. As of yesterday it's started to become unresponsive after an undefined period (say, 10 minutes) of unuse. So, when I turn on the computer, everything works fine. After I've left it alone for a while, I come back to it and find that the taskbar, desktop, and all windows buttons (minimize, maximize, close) have become unclickable, though other things (e.g. the tabs in Firefox) are still clickable. If I shut the computer down and restart it it's ok again, until it happens again.

This started yesterday: I hadn't installed any new programs yesterday.

Rearrange Minimized Windows Of Same Program In Taskbar

Is this possible? I have 3 open Chrome windows that are minimized in the taskbar. I would like them to remain in the order that I originally opened them, but sometimes Windows 8 decides to switch their order. It's extremely frustrating and totally breaks up the flow of my work. Can I rearrange them back?

Change Windows 8.1 Desktop Taskbar Behavior

Jun 10, 2014

I have my installation of Windows 8.1 desktop taskbar set to never combine, use small icons and locked. With XP I could pin a program to the taskbar, click it once and the program would open. Click the program icon a second time and a new instance of the program would open. With Win 8.1 if you click the icon the second time the window simply minimizes. How can I restore the old XP behavior. I realize that I can right-click on the icon after one instance is open and open another instance of the program. However, that is an additional step that is a pain in the butt.

I should add that I use the latest version of Classic Shell and have look through the settings and don't see any that can change this behavior.

Updates :: Windows 8.1 - New Update Available Notification In Taskbar?

Jul 11, 2014

A niggle that's potentially quite a problem is that my 8.1 laptop Taskbar is not notifying me that "New Updates are Available."

I never set to install them automatically, I like to know what's going on and choose how to use my connection and processing power, but the notification from the Log In screen is easily missed and not satisfactory in my opinion. I think there's a third party piece of software to correct this, but I was wondering if there's a better way to restore the function?

How To Pin Open Folders Icon To Windows 8 Taskbar

Jan 27, 2014

I'm setting up a new Windows 8 PC. In my Win7 PC, I have an icon on the taskbar that holds all open folders. I'll call it the "Open Folders" icon. I don't remember how that icon got on Win7's taskbar. How can I create a similar icon on Windows 8's taskbar.


In Win7, say I open the C: drive and click on "Program Files". Then I minimize that window. The "C:Program Files" folder minimizes to the "Open Folders" icon on Win7's taskbar.

Then say I open drive D: and click on a folder named "Photos". Then I minimize that window. The "D:Photos" folder minimizes to the same "Open Folders" icon on Win7's taskbar.

Now if I hover over the "Open Folders" icon on the taskbar, links to the Program Files folder and the Photos folder pop up. I can click the desired folder to open it.

How can I create a similar "Open Folders" icon on Windows 8's taskbar?
