How to move the taskbar icons to the center in Windows 7 [Tip]

By default, the Windows 7 icons are placed on the left of the taskbar. Windows 7 doesn’t have any options to center those taskbar icons. However, you can center the taskbar icons with TaskDock.

You can add TaskDock to Windows 7 from this page [1]. There press the Download button to save the Zip to Windows. Extract the file, which is in Zip format, by right-clicking on it and then select¬†Extract All. Open the program from the extracted folder. Then you’ll find a TaskDock icon around the system tray area as shown below.
