I have a wierd issue, one of our users is asking if we can order the preview windows for the application we have written in c# in windows 7.  The problem is that the "main" application window isnt on the "left" like all the other applications, like outlook for example, when the application first starts it stays on the left but over time somehow new windows (that are part of the same application) end up being placed to bother the left and the right of the main application window in the thumbnail previews, I guess this is annoying for them because they have to search for the correct window, however I havnt been able to find anywhere any information on being able to change the order.

You mean that the pinned Icons get mixed up with the open programs?
Just drag and drop them to the left, beside the Start Icon and they will stay there.

if you have multiple windows open in the same application, the want to change the thumbnail preview order (when you hover the mouse over the taskbar item preview windows pop up)

The thumbnail's are sorted by the time they are opened. (so the window first opened will be the first thumbnail)

I dont think that this order can be changed.
