How to Add Windows 8 User Tile to Windows 7 Taskbar?

by Jawwad in Software, Tips&Tricks, Windows | 1 comment

These days all kinds of images and features are leaking around the net for the upcoming highly anticipated Windows 8 OS from Microsoft. We have already shed light on the integration of the built-in PDF reading capabilities in Windows 8 as well as the use of ribbon based user interface to be employed now system-wide (if early Windows 8 builds are any indication). One of the features that was clearly visible in the very early leaked images of Windows 8 was use of a currently login user’s tile that was being displayed in the tray bar (far right of the taskbar) area. It provided the options to logoff, switch the user or launch control panel.

If you are on the Windows 7, you can basically get the same functionality by  using a nice free utility/application created by the AngelWZR – a DeviantArt user. It will provide the above mentioned functionality of the Windows 8 right now in Windows 7! You can get it here from DeviantArt.
