TaskbarX is a portable app that allows you to control the position of your taskbar icons, providing you with the original Windows dock like feel.
Once unpacked and launched, TaskbarX shifts the icons to the center display. Or to a user-defined position if an icon gets added or removed from the taskbar. You will be given the option to choose between a variety of different animations and change their speeds. You can disable the animations if you don't like them and prefer an instantaneous move instead.
TaskbarX will additionally permit the center position to be changed, bringing your icons more to the left or right based on the center position. Currently, all taskbar settings are supported, including the vertical taskbar and unlimited taskbar.
TaskbarX is a simple option to control your taskbar icon alignment and comes displayed from a user-friendly interface. If you prefer the Command-line, TaskbarX does support command-line arguments. See below:
-stop will stop TaskbarX, puts all icons back to the left, and resets the taskbar style. -tbs=1 will make the taskbar transparent. 2 blurs, 3 acrylic, and 0 is disabled. -ptbo=0 will set the offset of the primary taskbar based on the center. -stbo=0 will set the offset of the primary taskbar based on the center. -cpo=1 will only center the primary taskbar. 0 is disabled. -cso=1 will only center the secondary taskbar(s). 0 is disabled. -as=backeaseout will set the animation style to BackEaseOut.

The store version ($1.09) is the same as the free version. It's a donation system to support the author's work. The store version does provide the benefit of automatic updates and easy installation.
