Re: Rearranging icons on the taskbar.

Robert Logue

Hey Don.  Which screen reader?

I could not make drag and drop work with Jaws in the past.  I have not tried NVDA and I don't know if Narrator supports drag and drop.

BTW: I heard the latest update to Jaws changed support for drag and drop.

I wish Windows had a more accessible way to rearrange the taskbar.

It wouldn't hurt them to add numbers.  I have to count and remember the order to use the windows key and number shortcut.

Would that make a difference?

I tried using drag and drop. Although it made the appropriate noises on my windows 10 computer, it didn't actually work. If you want to do this the simplest way I can think of, do the following.
unpin everything from the taskbar by right-clicking or the equivalent on each item and choosing unpin. Now, open the run box with windows+r and type shell:appsvolder and press enter. This will open a folder with shortcuts to all your apps. Do the equivalent of right click and pin any you want on the taskbar in the order in which you want them.
