I have some ideas of ma own to make taskbar more attractive and easy to use. some of the suggestions are mentioned below :
1. when we click on the arrow icon for more quick launch itmes then it shows the other quick launch items in a list form which looks very odd. i suggest that the extra quick launch items must be shown in grid menu view.
2. the tabs for any apllication or window we opens are sequentially arranged 1 by 1 in the manner in which it arranges. we cannot drag or changes the position of tabs according to our use or ease. there must be the facility of changing the position of tabs.
3. when the taskbar is empty or there is no window opened in it. It can show some tips related to windows or able to show schedules or notes etc. in the task bar. it's just like the news lines running under the screen of the news channels.
4. there must not only 1 taskbar in explorer and but have many taskbars which will also b created by users itself and all taskbars will links with the main taskbar.
for example. a user created a taskbar and opened 4 types of internet browsers and works but later he closes two of them n for opening them again he have to open them via double clicking the icon or via quick launch but if he have the facility of saving the task bar it is much easy for him to open the many apps of same type quickly n easily. then there is no need of quick launchs n icons on desk top. he just opens the apps of same category and saves the taskbar with the opened tabs and also able to give name to that taskbar like for here he can give it name "internet browsers" n in place of quick launh there is saved taskbar number or icon.
suppose, today if we need to open browser via quick launch and we click on quick launch arrow icon it also shows icons of all other application that are needed by us that time but if a user can be able to save the taskbar which contains the open tabs of 4types of browsers. then he simply click on the number icon or special icon associated by user itself and the task bar containg all the tabs of browsers appears in place of the main taskbar and click the tab of the desired browsers and the remaining tabs of browsers can be simply removed by right clicking on them and there must be a small icon at anyside through which we can go to main taskbar anytime.. user can create various task bar categories like messenger taskbars, bowser taskbars, drives taskbar, media players taskbar etc. and microsoft will also provides some default taskbars like office taskbar, control pannel taskbar etc.
this idea can really make revolutionary change in the traditional taskbars.
these are some ideas i have for new generation taskbar.
