7+ Taskbar Numberer 5.1
Add numbers to your taskbar and system tray icons for easier access

7+ Taskbar Numberer is a tiny tool which adds numbers to the icons on your Windows 7 or 8 taskbar.

Why? If you want to launch or switch to, say, the 7th icon from the left on the taskbar then you can hold down the Windows key and press 7. But it may take a moment to figure out exactly which number any particular icon might be - unless you have 7+ Taskbar Numberer add and display the details for you.

Of course, while the numbers are very small, this still isn't the most visually appealing of effects. The author understands that, though, and has recently added an option to help: you can now tell the program to display numbers only when the Windows key is held down. Normally everything looks as normal, and only when you press the Windows key will the numbers appear.

Getting started with the program is easy enough. Just launch the appropriate version for your system (32 or 64-bit), choose the display mode - only when the Windows key is down, say - and you'll see the results immediately.

If you have any problems (or just don't need the program any more), right-click its system tray icon and the numbers will disappear immediately.

And if you decide you want to launch the program automatically, without the default status window appearing, all you have to do is create a startup shortcut with the appropriate commands, like: “C:\Software\7 Taskbar Numberer\64\7 Taskbar Numberer.exe” -v2 -hidewnd

See the program's Readme.html file for more details.


If you use the WinKey+Number shortcut (or any similar quick access option) to switch to programs then 7 Task Numberer will make the process quicker and easier.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
