Taskbar Shuffle is a simple, free utility that lets you drag and drop Windows taskbar buttons to rearrange them.
Before I installed Taskbar Shuffle, I opened applications in a certain order so they'd always be in the same place on my Windows Taskbar. And if an application crashed, I'd need to close and re-open them all just to get them back in their accustomed place. But no more -- yay!
This free utility is a no-brainer for anyone who has more than a couple applications open at a time (like WorkFlows, Outlook, Firefox, etc.). It's worth a try!
