Falcon10 | Centering the taskbar icons in real time.

Recommended Posts

chrisand1998    3

I requested this feature because it looks nice. And some people like to do their work in the middle of the screen.

But it never got implemented. So i wrote a tool that does this automatically.

No matter how many icons there are in the taskbar they always get nicly centered.

 

Requirements:

Windows 10

 

Tested on:

1803 x64

1809 x64

 

Download:

https://chrisandriessen.nl/downloads

 

Changelog:

Falcon10 Build 27-11-2018 November
* Added simple tray menu for exit & restart

Falcon10 Build 26-11-2018 November
* Supports Windows 10 All builds
* No Admin Required!

 

 

PS: The gui you see in the video is gone for better performance

 

 

Im also working on a unnamed side project using the Falcon10 Mechanics.

That is able to Center the whole taskbar. You have seen in Customatic as a concept. <-- I hope they continue

This is already working as i am typing this topic. But it needs time...

got a reply from the dev: 

 

Yes iam aware of that, this is getting worse from the last month. I can't do anything about this i even contacted MS to whitelist FalconX but no answers. It is a false positive of course but FalconX is modding Windows in realtime so that could be the issue why its getting marked. You have to make an exception for now.

Wish Windows just did that automatically. Like a taskbar option that could be turned on.

likely the same issue @Raphaël G. has run into with Dopamine. since it's not a 'signed/trusted' app many AVs throw a false positive.

Yes, it is really silly. Cheap AV's flag software based on obscure behavioral checks. Also, software which is delivered with a installer which is not signed using a certificate, have a much bigger chance of getting flagged as malware by such AV's. A certificate is not free and usually, not cheap. A developer which creates software in their free time, and delivers said software for free, cannot be expected to buy a certificate just because some AV's are bad.
