Taskbar Repair Tool Plus! is a compact and portable software application that allows you to repair some issues concerning the taskbar, notification area and quick launch bar, as well as to make some tweaks to them.
Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can simply drop the executable file on any spot on the hard disk and run it. Otherwise, you can just copy the item to a USB flash drive or similar storage unit, and run it on any computer. Therefore, you can carry the app in your pocket whenever you're on the move.
What's more important is that the Windows Registry section does not receive new updates (thus, minimizing the risk of system errors), and files are not left behind on the hard drive after removing the tool.
The interface of the application is represented by a standard window with an uncomplicated layout, where you can select one of the options found in the drop-down menu of each target area. For instance, it is possible to restore the missing taskbar or minimized programs, remove particular icons and toolbars, as well as disable the taskbar context menu.
But you may also hide or show all listed tray icons, remove the system clock, selective icons or the entire notification area, disable balloon tips and the low disk space warning, save the quick launch sorting order, as well as restore the "Show Desktop" icon. The new changes are applied to the system once it is restarted; however, you cannot make multiple modifications simultaneously, so you may need to reboot the computer several times.
The simple program is low-demanding regarding the CPU and system memory, so it doesn't put a strain on the computer's performance. It has a good response time and worked well in our testing, without crashing or popping up error dialogs. While keeping in mind that Taskbar Repair Tool Plus! has not been updated for a very long time, it offers users a quick solution to solve some Windows issues.
