    Classic Right Click Menu On Taskbar Items


    Hello. I'd like to state that I'm aware that 7++ Taskbar Tweaker has that classic menu option when right clicking on a Taskbar tab (refer to picture), yet I'm sure there's a Registry tweak for that. Does anyone know where in the Registry that is located?

    Hi, if you mean that the tweaker enables you to see that rather than the default context menu, you can find out for yourself what registry change is involved by using a free program- Regshot.

    With PC Idle, run Regshot, create 1st 'shot' of registry (wait).
    Make the change.
    create 2nd 'shot' of registry (wait).
    click compare, and a list of hanges will be presented.

    Thanks for that suggestion. I tried it just now and got:
    Total changes: 205
    I tried looking through some of it that may have something to do with when I had the app open (first save) and when it was closed (second save), but there's too much to look through in there, and some of it doesn't make sense/may be it/etc
    Does anyone know exactly where in the registry that is?

    Why don't you just Shift right click?
    Edit: key correction

    Hi, thanks for the reply. Yet, you meant to say the Shift key + Right click. But I'm looking for the entry in the Registry for that.

    Hah yea. I just found this online, but apparently it doesn't work with the latest version of Windows 10:

    Well, here's the article that apparently confirms what I stated in my post right before this one. Oh well?

    Edit: So apparently there's no way, other than the app, to revert to the classic menu. So I will mark this as solved.
