  1. 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.

    • Make Bins work for Windows 8.1

      Update Bins to work in Windows 8.1. And no, the Bins 247 update did not work! Windows 8.1 crashes on startup. Had to remove it entirely.

        • Display popup icons vertically when taskbar is docked vertically

          Any chance you can show the bin's popup icons vertically, instead of horizontally, when the taskbar is docked right or left? Then just push the aeropeek out further to the right so that it does not overlap with the bin icons.

          • Bins causes significant delay at Windows 7 startup

            Both of my Windows 7 64-bit systems that are running Bins have a significant delay after logon as bins starts up. Without bins running and with all the other background apps launching I can typically start working within about 30-45 seconds after logon. Bins creates a delay that can last for as long as 2-3 minutes. Once Bins has started everything works fine.

              I’d love to try and help on this problem. Could you please try the following? Bins has a “preload service” I’d like to disable, we’re going to do that by running the “BinsLauncher.exe” program with the parameter “/uninstallservice”. Please open the Run dialog by pressing WinKey+R, and entering the following

              programfiles\OneUpIndustries\Bins\BinsLauncher.exe /uninstallservice

              If you have UAC enabled, you should get a prompt confirming elevation so it can perform the uninstall of the service. If you’re particularly saavy, you can verify the service is gone by going to your “View local services” control panel area and verifying “BinsPreloadService” no longer exists. (We’ve disabled this service in the next version of Bins, but as of today it still exists)

              After that, you’ll want to reboot and see if the situation has improved. If not, perhaps I’ll need to take a closer look. Thanks…

            • Bins is great, but it's utilizing too much graphics resources, even when Aero is disabled.

              I suggest reworking your code and minimize the load on the graphics card. I loose 20 FPS on games when Bins is running, even when Aero is disabled.

              • look into lag with multi monitors and possibly display fusion

                not really a suggestion or tweak. I just wanted to report the problems I am having and don't see another way.

                I have a fairly high end computer.
                3 monitors and using DisplayFusion
                Intel Quad Core i7 2600K 3.4ghz
                16GB Ram
                Windows 7 Ultimate

                I started using bins a few weeks ago and noticed a 2-5 second lag when maximizing or switching to applications in the task bar. Sometime even longer.

                It is quite annoying, and I know that it is bins that is causing the problem because once I uninstalled the program there is no lag what so ever.

                    • Chrome "Profiles" don't work

                      I recently created multiple profiles in Chrome. When I switch to a new profile, a new window pops up. Bins actually adds a new icon group to the taskbar that looks exactly the same as the original icon group. If I try to select a different browser all Bins does is re-orders the icons (no browser is launched).

                      • Fix the overlap caused by the bins app selecter and the window preview when taskbar is not on bottom

                        I have my taskbar on the side of my screen rather than the bottom. This causes the bins program selection to overlap and hide the open window previews. It's my only complaint.

                        • change the colors of the indicator lines to something darker for bins with active programs.

                          When using a program or browser with a dark background or page, it makes it difficult to see the color of indicator line over bins with active windows. Perhaps change the color to something more noticeable, one that contrasts better with the lighter grey?

                            • Bug when hovering

                              When I have more then one program open in a bin, but still have other programs closed in the bin, the aeropeek feature jumps from one open program to the next making it very difficult for me to pick the program that i want. (I have small icons set up in my windows task bar, but even when I made them the large icons the problem persisted)

                              • Improve the impact Bins has on Windows Explorer

                                I love the idea of Bins, and I've gotten many compliments from co-workers on them. But I've installed it a few times now, on powerful laptops (up to 8 cores, 16GB RAM), and each time I've noticed my Windows Explorer performance slow down until it's basically unusable. Any sort of click or refresh takes up to a minute to actually process and respond. The Bins themselves continue to function very quickly and fluidly, and I don't notice any affect on my startup performance (the system reboots very quickly, even with all my development tools installed). It's only Windows Explorer that…

                                  I really like Bins but it is not compatible with Office Tab. Office Tab is looking into the problem. Could you also check this out?

                                  • Match Windows 8 UI

                                    It would be nice if Bins would display its UI based on the running OS.
                                    Make the icons container square without rounded corners and the 3D effect.
                                    Make the shadow width less to match windows 8 peak popups.
                                    Make the tool tips and labels also square to match the OS.

                                    Tweaking these items would make Bins blend perfectly with the OS UI.

                                    • support dragging items to program icons to pin to jumplists

                                      with plain taskbar, dragging a folder to the Explorer icon (for example) will pin that folder to Explorer's jumplist. This functionality is lost with bins, and the folder instead pins into the bin. There needs to be a way to drag and pin to a program's jumplist instead of to the bin.

                                        • Adapt the popup's appearance to that of the windows.

                                          I have a theme installed that makes my Win 7 windows (the actual windows, not the whole Windows) look like the windows from Win 8. Those windows have no rounded edges anymore, yet the Bin popup does have them. Please try to detect the theme, or at least make the border radius an option. :)
