    Program to reorder+rename windows of a single program on the taskbar?


    Hello,

    I am looking for a program which can reorder and rename windows of a single program on the taskbar and will remember positions and names, even after program is closed and reopened! So far nothing I found worked!

    Thanks!

    Create a shortcut to the program and name it whatever you like then pin the shortcut to the taskbar? (Unpin the old one first)

    It seems you misunderstood what I want to accomplish! I want to reorder order of windows e.g. of Firefox on the taskbar. More precisely: sub-windows of a single program - since you can already drag windows... Also I want to rename sub-windows to custom names. Both things should persist after Firefox restart!

    These icons on my Taskbar? The blue line underscore of the icons indicate those programs are open, even closed they seldom rearrange on their own. Firefox is showing open twice, indicated by the shadow on the right of the icon, don't know that it has actual subprograms but add-ons and extension. If you mean the Web pages the URLs can be dragged to the desktop then right-clicked and Pinned to the Taskbar or right-click the Taskbar, go to Taskbar settings then go to Links on the Toolbar item, will give an additional Toolbar on the Taskbar to the left of the Notification area [where my Desktop shows].

    I said sub-windows and by that I meant this: Program to reorder+rename windows of a single program on the taskbar?-firefox-sub-windows.png So when I have multiple Firefox windows, I want be able to reorder them, so I can find window (I want) quickly! Renaming them would be also invaluable when alt+tabbing, to see window names! Since if I change tab in x window - it will have different title each time, making it impossible to find right window!

    Tab manager is for something else... It doesn't help to to find right windows!

    Don't think it can be done. Check the settings options shown here:

    The Never choice will show lots of icons for a program.

    I have to disagree. Although it does not allow renaming it can save tabs and opened windows and restore them even after closing firefox.

    The Windows Taskbar is terribly limited in it's functionality for organizing windows and/or tabs and their placement not to mention their restoration!

    Consider a program such as Stardock Groups...

    and, for Explorer... QTTabBar...

    A session manager, as aforementioned, is also suggested for browser sessions.

    Oh my !!! Finally answer on point!!!

    It works, only annoying part is that dragging firefox windows over firefox windows took me like 500 trials to do... It can group newly created windows automatically thought, thank god!

    Now to the renaming firefox windows part... I could find only 1 addon for that, but it doesn't have compilation instructions on github: even it is open-source! And has only 1500 users not verified, so I don't trust it.

    EDIT:
    AAAAAAAAA it doesn't remember order of windows and custom title names of windows, after FF restart.........................
