:: Taskbar Drop Shadow :: by sweatyfish :: Taskbar Drop Shadow :: by sweatyfish
Made a simple app to add a drop shadow to your taskbar. One .exe for a taskbar on the bottom, and one for the taskbar on top. Use whichever you need...

No installation, just copy to your %Program Files% folder. And run whichever .exe you need.

Instructions included.

-Adjustable opacity (darkness)
-Option to run at startup

Other than the ability to right click the shadow, it is non intrusive and doesn't show anything in the system tray.

Right click the shadow to choose preferences or to close it.

There may be a very slight chance that this won't work for your setup. Therefore, no support is given for this program.

I know this is an older software but would it be possible to have multi-monitor support for the taskbar in Windows 8? Thanks!

One quirk with this - the shadow, when applied to a top positioned task bar, and set to "always on top", so that the taskbar always has a 3D emphasis over a maximized window, currently blocks click-access to any buttons (like min, max, close buttons for example) that are within the shadow area. If you could make the shadow "click-through", this would make it perfect.

Could you add a custom height? I want to use it alway on top, but top shadow hides min, max and close menu for maximized windows.
