    Thanks, Lee πŸ™‚
    It works perfect on my left side. Wouldn’t mind a choice of changing shadow colour.

  4. Thanks Japp: This is in the works πŸ™‚

  5. Colorful, yes, but 3D? Not so sure what you might be looking for there.

  6. The point is a lot of users like having a shadow effect on the Taskbar. It’s nothing more than having extra options.

    Thanks for the app!

    Some suggestions:
    – Remember opacity setting between sessions
    – Add Windows startup option
    – Add an Always-on-Top option, perhaps with a way to disable it when a window is maximized.

    Thanks again!

    Are you planning on updating this app?

  10. Is there any possibility of adding dual/multi-monitor support while using software such as UltraMon?

    The taskbar doesn’t quite span the second taskbar in my setup:

  11. Nice! Could you add always-on-top option?
