    Windows 10 taskbar toolbar icons


    I've been looking all over the paces and was not able to find any inteligent answer.
    Recently I lost my icons sort order for Quick Launch toolbar. any time after I move icons around to place all in some logical (to me) order, the next time I reboot the computer they are place in some default order that does make any sense to me.

    How can I keep my order intact? Where the icons positions (sort order) is stored?

    :)

  2. Taskbar changes height when toolbars have icons set to "Large"

    There has been an issue with the Windows taskbar which drives me crazy. It has been a problem since Windows XP and the "skinning" of the underlying user interface controls. It still persists in Windows 10.

    When using a Toolbar on the Taskbar and the icon size is set to "small", the clickable targets are smaller than the vertical height of the taskbar. No problem, right? Either make the taskbar icon set to "small" as well and the clickable target area matches.

    But what if I like the large buttons to click on? Setting the Toolbar (not taskbar!) icons to Large causes the taskbar vertical height to increase. This is fine for the Toolbar, but the application icons in the Taskbar now have an unclickable space beneath
    them. See image below (not my image... found online when trying to find a solution to this.)

    This doesn't happen in Windows 7 when using the "Windows Classic" scheme... so the problem must derive from the Aero skinning of the taskbar.

    To recreate:

    • Right click on the taskbar and Unlock it.
    • Ensure taskbar is set to "large icons" mode from Taskbar properties dialog box.
    • Right click an empty area of the taskbar and create a new Toolbar.
    • Right click on the label of the toolbar and choose View > Large Icons
    This wouldn't necessarily be an issue if the clickable region of the Application Icons was the full vertical height of the visible taskbar. It also wouldn't be an issue if the Toolbar "Large Icons" setting didn't have icons bigger than the Application Icons.

    If there is a registry hack or other solution PLEASE let me know! I have had this problem with Toolbars since Windows XP, and the Toolbars are essential to my workflow.

    Thanks!

    Task Bar - how can I shorten task bar by putting icons in a folder?

    You can put many of the icons on the right [the "System tray"] into a sub-folder-ish item that appears as a little up arrow next to the System tray.

    Right-click on the Taskbar, Properties, Notification area - Customise

    and use

    Select which icons appear on the taskbar

    and

    Turn system icons on and off.

    - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    You can also put your own icons into a menu system instead of always being on the taskbar whether they are in use or not.

    Right-click on the Taskbar, Toolbars, New toolbar ...

    Create a folder somewhere convenient and put all the icons you want in there. You can make subfolders as well and the result is very XP-like. Then point the Taskbar, Toolbars, New toolbar ... at your new folder.

    An example,

    This method works in Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 10.
