Organize Icons on Windows 8 Taskbar by Giving Space Between Them With a Transparent Icon

If you would like to keep your programs neat and organized on your Windows 8 or Windows 7 taskbar, you might also like to get some space between each group of programs, so your taskbar looks simpler and more beautiful. Here is how you can separate each group of programs with a transparent icon.

Blank.exe is a tiny transparent icon software that does nothing at all, but you can use it on your taskbar to get some space between each icon.

 To use it, download the Blank.exe zip file and extract it. Then just drag and drop the exe file to the taskbar, where you want space.

 If you want multiple blank space, just make copies of Blank.exe and drag and drop to the taskbar.

Blank.exe can be downloaded from source here. If you would like a manual method, you may follow this tutorial.
