    Default Windows 7 Taskbar

    So, all the information I could find online dealt with Windows 7 beta or RC.

    Here is what just started happening. When I first got chrome and used it in Windows 7 64bit Pro, everything chrome related would stay in one taskbar menu, i.e. if I had three windows opened, when I hovered over the google chrome icon three mini windows would pop up and I could choose one. However, when I open a new window from the chrome launcher, another chrome icon appears in the taskbar for this new window, and every subsequent window opens in that icon. I would like it to go back to the way it was.

    Does anyone know why this would happen?
    Any solutions?

    This is a bug that all Windows 7 users have... It will be fixed I am sure...

    Well, the thing is that this wasn't happening for the past month or so, it just happened today. I read somewhere that it was because of the AppId or something, or that it was fixed in the regular release of Chrome but not the developer channel. Could that be the case, and if so, how would I go about unsubscribing from the developer channel or fixing the AppId issue?

    How to enable aero peek in chrome dev



    1. Locate your Chrome or Chromium shortcut. There should be one on your desktop and one in your start menu - either one will work.

    2. Right Click the shortcut and choose properties.

    3. Find the target box (it will be highlighted when the properties screen appears).

    4. Left click at the end of the line (after chrome.exe).

    5. Press space.

    Add your command line switch. --enable-aero-peek-tabs

    The result looks like this:

    C:\Users\bry\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --enable-aero-peek-tabs (with your user name instead of mine)

    6. click apply

    7. restart chrome if running
