Taskbar is also fully supported on Chrome OS — use Taskbar as a secondary Android app launcher on your Chromebook!

  • Start menu — shows you all applications installed on the device, configurable as a list or as a grid
  • Recent apps tray — shows your most recently used apps and lets you easily switch between them
  • Collapsible and hideable — show it when you need it, hide it when you don’t
  • Many different configuration options — customize Taskbar however you want
  • Pin favorite apps or block the ones you don’t want to see
  • Designed with keyboard and mouse in mind
  • 100% free, open source, and no ads

Taskbar lets you launch apps in freeform floating windows on Android 7.0+ devices. No root access is required, although Android 8.0, 8.1, and 9 devices require an adb shell command to be run during initial setup.

Simply follow these steps to configure your device for launching apps in freeform mode:

  1. Check the box for «Freeform window support» inside the Taskbar app
  2. Follow the directions that appear in the pop-up to enable the proper settings on your device (one-time setup)

A taskbar is an element of a graphical user interface which has various purposes. It typically shows which programs are currently running.

The specific design and layout of the taskbar varies between individual operating systems, but generally assumes the form of a strip located along one edge of the screen. On this strip are various icons which correspond to the windows open within a program. Clicking these icons allow the user to easily switch between programs or windows, with the currently active program or window usually appearing differently from the rest. In more recent versions of operating systems, users can also «pin» programs or files so that they can be accessed quickly, often with a single click. Due to its prominence on the screen, the taskbar usually also has a notification area, which uses interactive icons to display real-time information about the state of the computer system and some of the programs active on it.

With the rapid development of operating systems and graphical user interfaces in general, more OS-specific elements have become integrated into and become key elements of the taskbar.

Early implementationsEdit

Windows 1.0Edit

Windows 1.0, released in 1985, features a horizontal bar located at the bottom of the screen where running programs reside when minimized (referred to as «iconization» at the time), represented by icons. A window can be minimized by double-clicking its title bar, dragging it onto an empty spot on the bar, or by issuing a command from one of its menus. A minimized window is restored by double-clicking its icon or dragging the icon out of the bar.

The bar features multiple slots for icons and expands vertically to provide the user with more rows as more slots are needed. Its color is the same as that of the screen background, which can be customized. Minimized windows can be freely placed in any of the empty slots. Program windows cannot overlap the bar unless maximized.

The Start button did not make an appearance in these early implementations of the taskbar, and had only been introduced in Windows 95 and later builds of Windows Chicago.

Appearance of the bar used for holding minimized windows in Windows 1.0.

ArthurEdit

Another early implementation can be seen in the Arthur operating system from Acorn Computers. It is called the icon bar[1] and remains an essential part of Arthur’s succeeding RISC OS operating system. The icon bar holds icons which represent mounted disc drives and RAM discs, running applications and system utilities. These icons have their own context-sensitive menus and support drag and drop behaviour.

AmigaEdit

AmigaOS featured various third party implementations of the taskbar concept, and this inheritance is present also in its successors. For example, AmiDock, born as third-party utility, has then been integrated into AmigaOS 3.9 and AmigaOS 4.0.[2] The AROS operating system has its version of Amistart that is provided with the OS and free to be installed by users, while MorphOS has been equipped with a dock utility just like in AmigaOS or Mac OS X.

Microsoft WindowsEdit

The default settings for the taskbar in Microsoft Windows place it at the bottom of the screen and includes from left to right the Start menu button, Quick Launch bar, taskbar buttons, and notification area. The Quick Launch toolbar was added with the Windows Desktop Update and is not enabled by default in Windows XP. Windows 7 removed the Quick Launch feature in favor of pinning applications to the taskbar itself. On Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, a hotspot located in the bottom-left corner of the screen replaced the Start button, although this change was reverted in Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2.

The taskbar was originally developed as a feature of Windows 95, but it was based on a similar user interface feature called the tray that was developed as part of Microsoft’s Cairo project.[3][4][5]

With the release of Windows XP, Microsoft changed the behavior of the taskbar to take advantage of Fitts’s law by removing a border of pixels surrounding the Start button which did not activate the menu, allowing the menu to be activated by clicking directly in the corner of the screen.[6]

The first implementation of the modern Windows taskbar in Windows 95. A standard Windows XP taskbar with multiple tasks running. Note the Quick Launch toolbar, introduced in Windows 95 OSR 2.5. When the notification area is full, it can be expanded. The taskbar in Windows 7 hides application names in favor of large icons that can be «pinned» to the taskbar even when not running. Unlike Windows XP and Windows Vista’s notification area, users have a choice to show all their notifications or get a small pop-up window, showing the user notifications without expanding. The next major revision to the taskbar came in Windows 10, where icons for Search and Task View have been added. Also, the shortcut to Action Center is visible.

Taskbar elementsEdit

  • The Start button, a button that invokes the Start menu (or the Start screen in Windows 8.1). It appears in Windows 9x, Windows NT 4.0 and all its successors, except Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.
  • The Quick Launch bar, introduced on Windows 95 and Windows NT 4.0 through the Windows Desktop Update for Internet Explorer 4 and bundled with Windows 95 OSR 2.5Windows 98, contains shortcuts to applications. Windows provides default entries, such as Launch Internet Explorer Browser, and the user or third-party software may add any further shortcuts that they choose. A single click on the application’s icon in this area launches the application. This section may not always be present: for example it is turned off by default in Windows XP and Windows 7.
  • Windows shell places a taskbar button on the taskbar whenever an application creates an unowned window: that is, a window that does not have a parent and that is created according to normal Windows user interface guidelines. Typically all Single Document Interface applications have a single taskbar button for each open window, although modal windows may also appear there.

    Programs that offer standalone taskbars for desktop environments or window managers without one include Avant Window Navigator, pypanel, fbpanel, perlpanel, tint2, and others.

    определение

    Бар — кусок длиннее толстого; счетчик бизнеса; рулон неразрезанного металла; железный рычаг, который используется для перемещения чего-то тяжелого; графический знак, используемый в письменной форме ; фанаты команды или спортсмена; или группа друзей, которая часто встречается.

    Одной из функций, предлагаемых панелью задач, является автоматическое скрытие, когда пользователь ее не использует, чтобы другие приложения могли воспользоваться своим пространством; только когда курсор находится на границе экрана, на котором скрыта панель, он отображается снова. Это было особенно полезно в эпоху маленьких мониторов, до волны с высоким разрешением и плоских экранов, потому что в настоящее время редко кто-то нуждается в этих нескольких пикселях.

    Более чем одна операционная система дает нам возможность привязки программ к панели задач ; В нескольких словах и размышлениях о старых концепциях, это не что иное, как создание прямого доступа в баре, но это делается гораздо быстрее и проще. В общем, достаточно выполнить желаемое приложение и затем нажать правую кнопку мыши на его значке на панели, чтобы указать системе, что мы хотим, чтобы оно оставалось там после закрытия.

    Стоит отметить, что отменить это действие можно в любое время, просто щелкнув правой кнопкой мыши на иконке, которую мы ранее создали, и выбрав соответствующую опцию, чтобы разархивировать программу на панели задач . С другой стороны, мы также можем изменить значки мест, просто перетаскивая их по отдельности в удобное для нас положение, чтобы получить организацию, которая ускоряет нашу работу.

    В принципе, панель задач — это пространство, которое помогает нам организовать ярлыки программ, быстро и динамично находить большое количество функций и, почему нет, всегда иметь дату под рукой. и время Однако, в зависимости от операционной системы, также возможно изменить его внешний вид в соответствии с нашими вкусами: степень прозрачности фона, размер кнопок и сочетание цветов — это лишь некоторые из наиболее распространенных вариантов.

    Следует отметить, что помимо популярности Windows, другие операционные системы, такие как Linux или Mac OS X, также имеют панель задач для облегчения управления ресурсами для пользователей .
