    Pinned app icons moved to the right when opening one inbetween


    Got a new laptop and WIN 10 taskbar behaviour have changed towards worse.I have 8 pinned icons on my taskbar left corner.When ever I open few of those, that are in the middle for example icon 1, 3, 5, 6 and 8 - then pinned icons, that are not opened - move to the right and stay between opened apps - see image belowThis is very frustrating, because idea of pinned icons is to have them in same place and for fast access instead of looking for those along the taskbar or looking for those in start menu. And the more instances you open the more these icons move awayIs there a way to fix pinned

    Force opened windows to open to the right of pinned taskbar icons?


    Hi All,


    Recently took the plunge and downloaded Windows 10. I'm still in the process of tweaking it to my liking and there are a few things that are driving me nuts and I don't know how (or if) I can fix them.

    The main problem that is irritating me right now relates to the taskbar and pinned icons. I've pinned several commonly used icons which rest nicely, on the bottom left. However, when I click on an icon, I notice it will open up right next to the icon itself. I really dislike this, as it essentially boots all the other objects to the right of that icon to the right which makes it harder to find other objects in that taskbar list that I might want to click on to open. The problem gets worse when I click on several pinned items too.

    Is there a way to force open programs to always open to the right of the last icon? It was obviously normal/possible to do this in XP/Win 7...

    Any advice or assistance would be most appreciated!

    Sincerely,
    Mr. Gisa

    P.S - Bonus questions/issues that are starting to bother me as well...
    I) is there a way to give these opened windows a dark black border, like in XP? Not a fan of the transparent borders but can't find the option to enable? ? them..
    II) I'm reaching here, but is there also a way to turn off the fade in/out when clicking on a video link or looking at pictures?

    Windows 10 - Need pinned apps to open next to its icon

    I'm running Windows 10 and I have apps pinned to the task bar. Below are examples of what its currently doing and what I need it to do going forward. Basically when I pin an app to the task bar it puts an icon there for me to click and open that app (Duh right?). When I click to open any of these apps, I need that app window to open next to the icon I clicked. The first screen shot below shows what it's currently doing, the second screen shot shows what I need it to do. Any suggestions?

    Example of what it is doing:

    This is an example of what I want it to do:
