Improving Task Bar

Submitted by qwerty on April 17, 2010 to Usability

a few suggest with taskbar.
1. open application icons should be group together(move closer together), ungroup when application close, so i don't need to move too much to get to the application.
2. better way to access multirow icons. multirow icons should display up instead of scrolling down and have to scroll back up.
3. be able to drag files to mini windows instead of waiting for windows to maximize.
4. taskbar size should be able to increase or decrease any size instead of predefine size.



Not fixed

Agree on 2, 3 and 4. Totally disagree on 1st. Thanks to this, I don't know whether I should demote this, promote this or leave it alone.

I don't understand 1. What do you mean by move too much to get to the application? If you mean the program icons on the task bar could be moved closer together, when their application is not launched and turned into a tab, I agree. This also applies to small icon view.

4. If Windows 8 is using Direct2D and being fully hardware accelerated, that could be sweet:)

I also think that pinned icons that aren't opened should be more close to each other. Agreed with 2, 3 and 4 too.
