hi, i jst want to know how can u make the tabs group all together in the first place? Is it because of the reg key?
Reply
:iconmufflerexoz:
mufflerexoz Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2009
The Reg key is only to activate the Folder Group icon Into Libraries Icon.
The tutorial to activated the Group Taskbar included right know follow the instruction.

*For the x64 user u can try it. Included the explorer 64bit file system. But not sure the reg will work :( if anybody try it and work please tell me.

Thanks for this nice update. I'm using it with Vista Ultimate x64 and it's working partially. Grouping is fine but I'm not able to get Windows 7 like "Shutdown" in the start menu even though I've tried with several Windows 7 themes from this site. These themes are Windows 7 like "Shutdown" capable according to the authors. Right now I'm using your latest theme and yours is the only one that manages to align shutdown button properly at 100dpi. Great work :-).

i know the group setting in taskbar, they only get grouped when there are too many similar tabs on the taskbar, but what i see from ur screenshot is that it look like they are already get grouped while still lots of space on the taskbar... hope u understand what i mean ~'~
