That is really good to know. I actually worked at MSFT as an architect for 10 years on .net, .js, powershell, cloud, etc.
Sidenote: I have been really busy and remiss in not sharing a lot of scripting components and other things I've developed and use with DOpus. I think it is an incredibly great product and one of the (2) or (3) big things that makes me stay on Windows as my prime development and work environment rather than the other systems I regularly use.
My main gripe about the task bar is the way it shuffles icons as windows are opened. I.e., it violates the principle of surprise. As one's motor skills get used to a pattern that an icon for launching or indicators will be in one spatial location, that shifts with the sands of opened windows, and icons can even flow to the hidden area as space is lost due to opening windows. I would also like to be able to script the combo-pop-up menus on those launcher-icons. I make extremely heavy use of sym-links (reparse-points) to manage portable vhdx drives and integrate systems that allow me to create servers or NAS setups that are portable and can be cloned or repaired quickly. Which means that I often want to resolve the location of a file or application path (there is no task-bar mechanism to find the target).
And, quite a few other suggestions. Like, I'd love to take a little time to extend DOpus to have a basic Scintilla/Notepad++ style visualizer since then it would be "darn" close to an IDE for working with Scripts and DevOps activities. Making it even more broadly appealing.
It is also probably worth mentioning that on all my Windows machines I install Araxis-Merge, and Classic Shell. On most of my machines I have at least two monitors (unless in latop road-warrior mode). Multi-monitor (w/DPI scaling) lends its own set of desirable elements to the mix. [and I have most of our engineers, staff (and recommend to clients) using a similar set up and mix on their machines].
p.p.s., thanks for getting me to revisit toolbars. I had not looked in a couple versions. I just discovered some new great stuff. DOpus is such a rich tool.
