This little thing has been annoying me since Win 7 came out and finally figured I'd ask if there is some hack to change it.
On my task bar I have the following icons...
Internet explorer | Windows Explorer | Windows Media Player | Google Chrome | Paintshop Pro x2
When none of these programs are in the open state everything is fine, however when I open up Internet Explorer, it changes the normal small icon into the full blown Internet Explorer taskbar icon right in it's place, which means my task bar will often look like a bunch of long I.E. taskbar open icons, then the small icons for Windows explorer, mediaplayer, chrome and psp, followed by a bunch of other program icons that are open programs.
This looks sloppy and non intuitive to me.
What I would like to do is to keep all the small icons (like they were in quickbar) on the left, and any open programs to open as new full size icons on the right of all the small icons. So that I don't have a bunch of larger open program icons, followed by all the closed small icons, followed by any other open program icons.
Is this somehow possible to do?
