I don’t know about you, but when I power on my PC, I always open tasks in the same order, and expect to see the tabs in the taskbar appear in the same sequence.
Have you ever found that for some unknown reason Windows resequences these tasks for you, and it’s impossible to change the sequence back?
Yes I know, call me anal retentive, but I am a creature of habit ok, and it really annoys the heck out of me!
I have even gone as far as to close all the tasks and re-open them, which is annoying when you have a lot of browser tabs open.
Apparently Microsoft have fixed this in Windows 7, and users can now drag the tabs to the order that they want, but help is also at hand for those of us using Vista or even XP (like me).
A small FREE program called Taskbar Shuffle provides this functionality, and it’s just brightened up my day, having seen my 8 open programs do a quick random reordering.
It’s easy to install, did I say FREE, it’s free of viruses too, and you can download it from the Nerdcave.
Give it a whirl and let me know what you think.
