is skipped.

Microsoft has fused live tiles into the feature, giving it both
a classic and fresh look.

Properties'. It lets you pin a program directly to the taskbar

without ellipses. It replaces characters in the middle of a
file status text string with ellipses so that the result fits
in the specified rectangle. If the string contains backslash
(\) characters.

can automatically detect the previous Version 8 configuration
