Learn something new everyday...

I've been using wndows since version 3.1. So it surprised me to find a new trick today. You can ctrl-click multiple windows in the taskbar then right-click one to get options to tile and cascade the windows. I found this tip in a PCWorld article.

Anyone know how to arrange the taskbar window buttons? (Yes, I've seen TaskArrange which works fairly well. But I'd rather be able to drag and drop the buttons on the taskbar itself and have windows remember the order.)

While I would love to get a free house, I thought it was interesting that another utility's web page suggests that there is no way to re-arrange taskbar entries in code:

And not long after I posted that, I found another article that claims you can snoop the taskbar in XP (only). I wonder now if there is a way to grab the events to drag/drop and complete what you're looking for...
