The win7 taskbar has such a limited context menu. Does anyone know of a way to add things to it. Ex. The Ultramon command "Move To Other Monitor"

Skaarah, hello. I *think* I know what you are asking about, but you tell me. Try this: hover over the taskbar item for a minimized window, when the Aero Peek or windows list appears, move your mouse to the window that you want to operate on. Now right-click and you should see the "old" style context menu with the Ultramon commands such as "Move to monitor" and such.

Yes it's an extra step from previous versions, but this is required when using the new-style Windows 7 taskbar which is both a launcher and a minimized window viewer. If there is a way to change this behavior, I don't know it (yet).
