I've been using Taskbar++ for a few days now and I like it a lot. Since some people have had trouble using it, here's how:
Start it up (put it in the Startup group)
To rearrange items:
- move the cursor to the task bar
- Hold down the Alt key for 2 seconds until the task bar items change in appearance
- While holding the Alt key, Drag and drop task bar items as you see fit.
The program doesn't remember the changes you've made for the next time you start up... it just rearranges things
Now that I've got a good Task bar manager, I'll look into all the good suggestions you guys have had for a system tray manager. :-)
