Change Windows10 Taskbar tabs order - (Moved)


Recommended Posts

Hi there!

II can't find how to change the order of tabs in the taskbar. The only thing I did was hide the tabs and show them in the right order.

But they are added already to the right of other tabs.

 

I even can't get list of open tabs.
 

AutoItSetOption("WinSearchChildren", 1)

Local $hWnd = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]")
Local $hTask = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:MSTaskSwWClass]")
Local $hTaskList = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:MSTaskListWClass]")

Local $ButtonCount = _SendMessage($hTask, $TB_BUTTONCOUNT, 0 ,0)  // return 0

Local $ButtonCount2 = _SendMessage($hTaskList, $TB_BUTTONCOUNT, 0 ,0)  // return 1

First MSTaskListWClass is a control not a window.  Second all toolbar messages will not work with this task bar.  Windows does not want that anyone can easily interact with it because of possible hacks.  This being said, it is possible to manipulate the bar with UIAutomation (search forum for more information).

No.  Did you read the last part of my response ?  You can use UIAutomation, to get informations (name, size, location, click point, etc) about each buttons and then decide what is best for you.

UIAutomation is a completely new topic for me. I don't even know where to look for information about it. All I found in an hour of googling and reading of the AutoIt forum is that it is designed to automate tests through emulation of user behavior.

What collection contains these buttons?

False.  It is a way to manipulate new UI design.

There is multiple examples provided.  Start with one of them, put something together, then we will gladly help you.
