I'm having problems with VirtualWin not keeping track of the taskbar order when switching between desktops. I’m running Windows 7 (64) and have “Static taskbar order” selected in the Expert tab. Additionally, I’m running “7 Taskbar Tweaker” which allows me to rearrange the order of the taskbar (and is probably the source of the problem). When I make any changes to the taskbar (via 7TT) it always reverts to the default order when I switch between desktops.

Not a huge bug but I thought I’d submit it as a FYI. I have enjoyed VirtualWin otherwise.

  • The support for dynamic toolbar support in Win7 was raised in feature request 3178720 (https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3178720&group_id=39588&atid=526970) this request also has a fixed version attached to it, could you please try this version and verify the fix - thanks.

  • This feature has now been release in version 4.4 - can you please confirm this resolves your issues.

     
  • The screen shot shows you are now using the correct setting (Dynamic rather than Static) but you've not confirmed this did fix your issue!

    However, with no response for 6+ months we can only assume it is fixed.

    Howdy,
    Just to let you know, Ticket #215 does not work. Virtuawin v4.4 on Windows 7 Enterprise Service Pack 1 64bit does not play well with Taskbar Tweaker 7 v4.2.7. TT7 easily re-arranges taskbar icons, but when you move to a different desktop and back, the icons have reverted to some default order. I've tried all variations of dynamic/static, etc settings and all function the same. TT7 is a readily-available free download, so it should be easy for you to test with it.
    Your doc/forum is confusing on whether virtuawin dynamic ordering is supposed to work on win7, but ticket #215 is about TT7 support specifically, but did not have confirmation that it actually works. It does not work for me. I am also running True X-Mouse Gizmo version 1.4, but otherwise standard environment. If this works for other people, please let me know. Perhaps there is some configuration I've missed. I would be happy to run a test version or otherwise help diagnose/fix the problem.
    Thanks,
    TomC

    Howdy,
    I tried Taskbar Shuffle v2.5 and VirtuaWin has the same dynamic ordering problem with it. I also tried v4.3 of Virtuawin with the same result.
