Here's a picture of my Windows 8 taskbar, and I'm wondering if anyone has ever seen if it's possible to make the changes I'm looking for through registry hacks or through some program. MS clearly neglects the vertical taskbar, and having the "Show Desktop" button on the bottom is really useless because I have to very carefully click the button now or else it is totally hidden behind the new start charm. The new Start button in 8.1 could in theory fix the problem except for the fact that you can't disable just the start charm. MS only allows you to turn off the top left and top right charms. Why the hell would I want BOTH a button and the charm? And why on earth would my icons be left aligned when every other taskbar icon is center aligned?
