(sorry but the web is something I link to for ideas.)
2. Hide the item so it doesn't show on the task bar with hstart. Link about.
3. Grouping is on by default. Sorry but it's a basic Windows skill to set the properties of the task bar. Is that the issue?
On my pc I created a shortcut of drive F. Is there a way i can group everything related to F drive under the shortcut i created on the taskbar? Right now i open the drive from the shortcut and it groups under the windows explorer icon. Id like to have separate groups for my C drive and F drive.
Here is what is in my shortcut
C:\Windows\explorer.exe /n,/e, "F:\"
