My students frequently hear me rant about technologies I dislike. One of my longest-standing complaints is that Windows won't give me control over the order in which programs appear in the task bar at the bottom of the screen. For some reason, the order of that workspace is important to me, but I can't drag the tabs to order them as I would have them. To get the order I so desperately crave, I tend to open programs in a particular sequence -- but you're out of luck if you want to move anything.
A former student emailed me a Lifehacker post about WinTabber to let me know there was a solution.
Is it bad that my techno-rants are so vitriolic that former students send me emails about them?
