Progress bar for Windows taskbar icon

Shotcut doesn’t use the Windows feature where you can display a progress bar in the task bar icon.
I would find this very useful to get a quick view on the rendering progress, without having to open the UI.

I thought about creating a pull request for it, but since I don’t really have C++ experience I rather want to create a suggestion entry here.

As far as I can see, it’s not too hard to implement; you can use QWinTaskbarProgress from Qt ( and maybe add it to the jobqueue.cpp file in your project.


I know this isn’t what you’re looking for, but you can break out the Jobs window and place it anywhere to view the progress.

That’s also nice, thanks for the hint! But not as nice as the taskbar solution would be :wink:
