Re-Ordering Taskbar Buttons

Posted on 2006-03-22

I have a computer with Windows XP Professional.

Is it possible to re-order or swap taskbar buttons? Currently I have ungrouped similar taskbar buttons.
So, for example, if I have the buttons in the following order (Assume the figure represents the taskbar):

 ------------ ------------- ------------------------ ---------------
|   Inbox   |   Eclipse   |   Internet Explorer   |   CMD.exe   |
 ------------ ------------- ------------------------ ---------------

Is it possible, by some means, to change the positions of these buttons by just dragging and dropping
to an appropriate position? Is it possible to swap CMD.exe and Inbox buttons by just dragging them?
The effect should be like this:

 --------------- ------------- ------------------------- -----------
|   CMD.exe   |   Eclipse   |   Internet Explorer   |   Inbox   |
 --------------- ------------- ------------------------- -----------

Or is there any other means?

    Happy that I can do something like that now. :o)
