I believe there is a 3rd party utility that will change the Ws7 taskbar to one like XP. Can someone provide the link? Perhaps there is more than one available.

Thanks, {redoak}

This is not a 3rd party app, but may accomplish what you are looking for??

I am not aware of any available 3rd-party applications to change the Taskbar. There is one for changing the Start Menu to behave akin to Windows XP called Classic Shell. It removes the search box and all the submenus under Programs cascade across the screen so there is no need to scroll up and down. If you have 30 or 40 applications in your start menu, this will allow you to see them all at once for quick navigation and selection.

Perhaps this is what you were referring to?

The first link is what I was looking for. I had the change in place but mysteriously lost it. I just could not remember where it came from.

I do not have so many apps in my start-up menu, so the second link will not be pursued at this time. I'll keep it filed for future reference, however. Of course, likewise to the first.

Many thanks, {redoak}
