Is there a Windows setting or mod that lets you move icons around the
taskbar - for instance if you are running Notepad, Outlook, Explorer,
and Word and you want to drag Word so it appears leftmost on the
taskbar, then Explorer, then Notepad, then Outlook, etc. ?

Thanks

Hi Mad,

Try the registry tweak on Kelly's site.
Save Settings on Exit (Line 54)

TaskArrange claims to do exactly that:

I haven't used it myself, so can't comment on it one way or the other.

I was just going to recommend TaskArrange. I use it and it works
very well.

It works great. Thanks!

Hopefully MS will allow you to drag task buttons around in future
versions of Windows
