Just because we are all using Windows 7 doesn’t mean that Windows XP is dead. Majority of the new netbooks come with Windows XP pre-installed, thus increasing it’s market share marginally. Some netbooks also come with Windows 7 Starter, but that is a different story.
If you are looking to manage and better organize your Windows XP taskbar, then Taskbar Helper can come useful. It lets you hide rarely used windows and moves them to system tray, they can be accessed by a single click on the icon.
It also adds the ability to minimize the window directly to system tray, thus reducing the clutter in the taskbar. We all know that Windows 7 does an excellent job in managing the windows, but this is not the case in Windows XP.
The program comes with many other features, including the ability to move the programs on taskbar. Visit the product home page to see the complete list of features.
We don’t need such tools for Windows 7, but I gave it a try anyway to see how it works. It turns out that it doesn’t work on Windows 7 and has been developed specifically for Windows XP.
