7+ Taskbar Tweaker v4.3, now with Windows 8.1 support
7+ Taskbar Tweaker v4.3 is out, which finally introduces support for Windows 8.1.
In addition, the new version contains some bug fixes and small improvements, so it’s a recommended update even for non-Windows 8.1 users.

My current version is 4.2.7, and I’m running Win7 64-bit. When attempting to update to version 4.3, I get a message indicating something like:
…7tt_setup.exe cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows.”
Please ignore my previous complaint regarding the “incompatibility” message. I got that error while I was on my company’s VPN.
After disconnecting from VPN, I was able to update to v4.3 on Win7 64-bit without issue.
I don’t know what I would have done without 7+TT to fix the taskbar. I am waiting for 7+TN to be updated too. 🙂
7+ Taskbar Numberer supports Windows 8.1 since v6.0, which was released in September 24.
Just wanted to say that your tool made my experience under Windows 7 (and now Windows 8.1) so great that I began to question my convenience from years of daily Windows XP usage.
I’m still using XP mostly, and sometimes when I need to close some window I’m unintentionally middle-clicking its taskbar button…
It’s a pleasure to know there is such a software and it’s done this good. It goes so deep under the hood of OS, and yet I’ve never had a problem with it.
And thanks so much for keeping it free.
You’re welcome 🙂
For Windows XP, you might want to try out Taskbar Shuffle:
This is great. Maybe an idea for Windows 8.1 is an option to remove the start button.
Where is this option (hiding the start button) in 4.3.1?
nevermind, it is a registry option.
you know what I’d love to see (if it’s possible)? When a Windows Explorer window is opened to a new location, if another window is already open to that location, it closes the already-opened window. e.g. I already have a window opened to C:\Program Files. If I attempt to browse to C:\Program Files in another Explorer window, the first one closes.
Would definitely help cut down on having dozens of duplicate windows (because it’s easier/faster for me to open a new window and browse to a location than to ascertain whether it’s already open and attempt to navigate to it).
I keep getting a pop-up that a new version is available and I choose update, but it keeps re-installing 4.2.7 and I tried to download a new version from your website and it tells me that 4.2.7 is already installed, and my choices are uninstall and reinstall.
What gives here?
There is a bug in the installer of v4.3.1, which might prevent form the exe file to be replaced on update.
Try to exit the tweaker, download the setup and reinstall manually.
I have done that already, but when I run the installer that I download from here, it tells me that 4.2.7 is already instealled and my choices are reinstall or uninstall, so it seems like I am getting 4.2.7 from your website still.
Can you check that please?
I would happily send you a SS of the installer prompt and clearly you can see in the background I just downloaded the newest from the link on your site. Please mail me at my registered e-mail address and I’d gladly send you that SS.
Hmm, perhaps you somehow get an old cached version of the file.
Try this one:
Yep, that worked, I got it now.
Odd though, I was even using incognito mode so it wouldn’t save anything in the way of cache, etc.
Anyway, thanks for your help!
I am waiting for 7+TN to be updated too.
You’re talking about Windows 8.1 update 1, right?
Please refer to the following post:
Explorer crashes if you try minimize with middleclick.
Should be fixed in v4.5.4.
