    Thanks. That was one of the first things that I tried. I got the standard "Could not load library (104)" error message that's produced after every Windows update. See the developer's blog:

    7+ Taskbar Tweaker for Windows 10 Creators Update - RaMMicHaeLs Blog

    Thanks for your help.

    Download 7+ Taskbar Tweaker 5.5

    (check changelog)

    Hi @Callender, thanks for that :)

    It's like seeing an old friend.

    I'm attaching a screenshot of the options dialog, to show the other guys what they might be missing.
