Taskbar user reviews :

Awesome! I’d like it if I could exclude some apps not just from Recent Apps but from All Apps, to make the list a little smaller.

Love the app! However , can you add different positions for the task bar, or have it hidden until the recent apps button is pressed? Its a little invasive when I’m trying to type and use the keyboard. Also, and this is likely out of your control, is there anyway to have multiple instances of the same app in freeform mode

Stupendous And delicious at the same time! Needs option to hide apps.

  • You can hide apps from the recent apps tray (but not the start menu) by long-pressing on the app and selecting Block from recents
