Is there any way to disable AWM's feature that lets you drag/drop (i.e. move) task bar buttons?

Dear Scott,

If you wrote about the primary taskbar (i.e. taskbar on the primary monitor) then try to enable the "Group similar taskbar buttons" option (right click on taskbar -> Properties -> mark the Group similar taskbar buttons check box).

For extra task bars now our program hasn't such ability.

I added your wish to list of improvements.

I'm afraid AWM does have that feature.  I've created a video of what I am talking about.  I can drag task bar buttons around, until I close AWM (shown in the video).  After closing AWM, I can no longer drag task bar buttons around.

I am sorry the video looks terrible.  Trust me when I say it's the AWM program that I am closing in the video.  I tried making another video, but my system started freezing when I would drag task bar buttons.

The drag/drop feature is also disabled when I select "Stop" from AWM's tray menu.

I find the feature annoying and wish to disable it.  It also freezes my system most of the time.

I created a new video and it shows:

1. AWM running but "stopped".  Cannot drag task bar buttons.

2. AWM running and "started".  Can drag task bar buttons.

3. AWM running and "started" again.  Can drag task bar buttons again.

4. AWM exited.  Cannot drag task bar buttons again.

URL is the same:

Dear Scott,

I cannot see your video because I haven't privileges for it.

You didn't understand me. Our program now has the ability to moving task bar buttons but hasn't the ability to turn off this option.

Strange...  Anyone should be able to view that video.  I will delete it as it is now unnecessary.

Sorry to misunderstand.  Thank you for the replies.

I can't use this version of AWM.  How can I obtain a copy of the prior version?
