  1. Start binned app directly by clicking mini-icon

    It would be great to start a binned app directly by clicking targeted on the small icon inside a bin, bypassing the submenu.

      Request accepted! No specific date I can give, but this is one of the next options we plan to add to Bins after this month’s upcoming feature-filled update. (This feature is not in the 1.0 update.)

      With this new option, when clicking a Bin you’ll be able to choose between launching the primary icon, launching all icons in the Bin, launching the mini-icon directly under the cursor, or just opening/closing the Bin.

    • Grid style Bins

      When I add more than a few icons to my Bin it becomes harder to handle. I want to be able to put my binned icons into a 3x2/4x2/etc grid

      • Allow showing Bin as a full-size icon instead of 4x4 mini-icons

        I like the 4x4 mini-icons in some cases, but in other cases I wish I could just pick a single full-size group-icon to represent the Bin if nothing is running in it.

        • Show labels for binned icons on mouseover (tooltips)

          I have a bin with more than a few icons in it. It would be helpful if I could see the titles of the shortcuts on mouseover (or after hovering for a moment... so, tooltips)

          • Windows 8 Support

            Now that Windows 8 has been finished I was hoping to get Bins working. Thank you!

              Hi everyone, good news! Bins is now Windows 8 compatible. To try out the Bins for Windows 8 beta release, please click the link below. No need to install .NET 2.0/3.5, as Bins is now targeted to .NET 4.0. Be sure to report on how it worked for you, thanks!

              **Update, we’ve resolved the code-signing issue (http://bit.ly/NNE0pa) that had been occurring. Please give the latest beta a try at http://www.1upindustries.com/BinsSetup.exe

            • Make it easier to customize icons

              I have several websites in my Bins/Taskbar which do not have proper icons. I wish it were easier to give them better looking icons!

              • Bin's ram usage

                Bins uses a good 50MB+ of RAM...that's not so good for people on 1GB-RAM computers.

                  We’ve added an option to Bins to switch into low-memory mode, intended for use on systems with very little memory. This mode may slightly impact the program’s responsiveness, but overall you should be good.

                  In the upcoming January update, you can find this setting in the “More Tweaks” area of “Taskbar Powerups”.

                    Request accepted! This feature may not make the upcoming near-term release, but we are now planning to add options to a future update for what happens when you click on a Bin.

                    You’ll be able to choose between launching the primary icon, launching all icons in the bin, launching the mini-icon directly under the cursor, or just opening/closing the bin.

                  • Add stacks(os x style),Basically a dynamic folder showing up as a bin.

                    We all now the downloads stack from os x .
                    Showing up as a fan.
                    The fan is not important but the fact you can see a changing directory as a bin.
                    And also then it's important that there are more view options for bins with many items(menu style)

                    • bins with Microsoft excel 2013 is not compatible.

                      I found a problem: bins with Microsoft Excel 2013 there are incompatibilities in use. When I double-click to open an excel workbook, excel prompts: "向程序发送命令时出现问题。"It means:There was a problem sending the command to the program.And could't open the EXCEL workbook.
                      When I uninstall the bins, everything back to normal.So I'm sure this problem is caused by bins, I hope you can solve this problem as soon as possible.
                      My OS is Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate X64.
                      P.S. I'm a user come from CHINA,my English is very poor,I hope you can understand what I mean.I also hope that you can really…

                        • Program icons are too faint

                          When a program is open within a bin, the remaining icons for unopened programs are too faint and are hard to recognize. I'm not even sure a distinction is needed here if a hoverover will show will show which program(s) is open.

                            I purchased this nice tweak 1 year ago. Now today (17th of Oct), after windows 8.1 's first major update, Bins is dead. Cannot start at all, tone of error windows popup when trying to start it manually.
                            Hope can keep using it in windows 8.1, it really like it...Plz fix it!

                            • Have an option to disable opening the first app in a bin by clicking the bin icon.

                              I put one of my bins next to my browser icon, and I very often click on it accidentally, launching the first program in the bin, which happens to be Total War: Shogun 2. Now it's pretty inconvenient to be in the middle of browsing then have a huge resource-hogging game suddenly pop out because of an accidental click. I'd like to see an option to disable that functionality.

                                Can we add the ability to add a custom icon for any bin, since the software seems to be a cross between a dock and a taskbar, docks usually allow custom icons so it would seem obvious to add this.

                                Right clicking on a bin would have a menu entry such as "Change icon for bin" which would open a browser.

                                  I'm aware it would cause a rift between two developers, but surely there's a way both could work together and get Bins functionality to behave well with DisplayFusion's extra taskbar for multi-monitor set ups!

                                    Hi all. Working with the people at DisplayFusion right at this very moment :) Haven’t yet been able to solve the problem, but we’re working at it. Thanks!

                                    UPDATE! Still working at it, but may have a fix. If anyone would like to try http://oneup.blob.core.windows.net/storage/Installers/BinsSetup224.exe (you’ll need to reboot after the update for it to have effect) feel free. Otherwise sit tight and we’ll let you know when it’s fixed for sure. Thanks!

                                    • Make icons in bins smaller (when using small-icons taskbar mode)

                                      Make the icons in bins the same size as taskbar icons. (I have my the 'small icons' setting enabled on my taskbar)

                                        • Create a backup function, to backup icon data and settings to a file.

                                          Bins needs a backup function, because I've lost the icons several items due to Bins encountering an error in Windows 7 SP1 x64.
