    Windows 10 S now makes real sense for restaurants and retail stores where you never want viruses getting on your point of sales system or undisciplined employees installing unauthorized software. I just purchased 4EPOS from the Windows Store and it is absolutely exceptional. It does everything we could ever need and more. It works with receipt printers and barcode scanners and it uses a very simple XML database.

    First off, thanks for making Taskbar Shuffler available... it's definitely a really nice tool that makes my life easier.

    Unfortunately, I seem to be having similar problems as @yc_richard. I have a Surface Book with Win10 (v1703 build 15063.483). I have the Taskbar Shuffler setting set to PORTRAIT: bottom, LANDSCAPE: left, and this seems to work OK without an external monitor. However at my desk I have two external monitors plugged into a Surface Dock, with one of them (in landscape mode) set as the primary monitor, and when I connect the machine the taskbar ends up on the right side of the primary monitor. (I have "Show taskbar on all displays" turned off, so there's just the one taskbar.) This seems weird since "right" is not a setting I have selected for any configuration.

    The really annoying part is that whenever I wake the system up from sleep (without having detached it from the dock), the taskbar goes back to the right side and I have to fix it again.

    I haven't done as much experimentation as @yc_richard, but I have verified that this doesn't happen when Taskbar Shuffler is not running.

    Is the source code for Taskbar Shuffler available? I'd be willing to play with it a little myself if I have time.

    Thanks!

    Another interesting detail: with my external monitor connected, when I select "Move to left" on the Taskbar Shuffler menu, the taskbar is moved to (or stays at) the right side of the screen. Move to top/right/bottom all work correctly though. So it may be that the app is properly trying to move the taskbar to the left, but somehow that is causing it to move to the right anyway. I have to use the Taskbar Settings window to move the taskbar to the left side of the screen. Quitting and restarting Taskbar Shuffler doesn't help.

    When I detach the dock and go back to the built-in display, everything works properly again.

    I'm glad Xodo made it to that list. That and Penbook are the only apps I use nowadays.

    Hey @lblb

    Thank you for sharing your work. I know this is years later now and it may be a long shot that you will even see this, but any chance you (or any kind soul reading this?) could help me with the lines of code needed to implement a hotkey for the touch toggle? I don't have programming background but have been recently learning some basic AHK scripting for my needs. But after trying for quite a few hours, I haven't been able to figure out where to put the hotkey code and what part of the script it needs to trigger.

    I want to use Ctrl+WinKey+T (^#t I believe) to toggle the touch on/off . Have tried implementing many variations throughout the script while reading through the AHK documentation for hours but haven't had any luck yet.

    In case it matters, I'm on Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, and the script currently works great.

    I'd be happy to help. So what script are you using that you say works correctly now? I imagine Tray Touch Toggle?

    And what would you like to do exactly: toggle touch just with a hotkey? or keep all of Tray Touch Toggle (if that's what you are using) and add hotkey support?

    Awesome, thanks @lblb! Yes, this is for Tray Touch Toggle which is working great. I found the .ahk script in Program Files and tried editing to add a keyboard hotkey to toggle the touch on/off just like clicking the tray icon does, but haven't been able to figure out what code to put where. If you could just tell me what lines I need to add where, I can do that.

    Thank you for responding!

    Edit: In case I wasn't clear, I want to keep it working as-is currently with the tray icon, but to also include a hotkey option. I believe if I ever changed my mind and wanted to remove the Tray Icon but still have it running, I could simply do so by adding #NoTrayIcon. But being able to see if touch is turned on/off by just seeing the status on the tray icon is very nice.
