I've been using this app for a few years now and I like that it is always available and on top for when you want to do the kind of quick calculations that I often have to do preparing stuff for my web design.
There is a more recent version of this v1.5.3 but the only new features it has is an updated installer (which we of course do not need) that adds more clutter such as a help file and TCCalcLoader.exe & DLL which is just useless junk to me.
So if you prefer the leaner simpler older versions as I do then I am sure you will be happier with v126.96.36.1990 DLL which I packed here too.

Taskbar Calculator: A convenient calculator for windows
It's a simple mathematical calculator, but with a useful peculiarity: it is positioned on the taskbar, that area of the desktop where the list of the open programs appears (generally on the bottom of the screen), so that it doesn't cover the opened programs, making the calculation more practical. It supply basic mathematical functions: sum, multiplication, division, subtraction, percentage, square root.
The Taskbar Calculator uses the Windows settings for decimal numbers. To change the calculator behavior go to Control Panel/Regional Settings and set the “No of digits after decimal” value for the Numbers format.
Taskbar Calculator Special Keys:
“C”, “Esc” : Clear digits
Q : Square root
Z : Insert three zeros
% : Percent
P : Negative/positive
I : Inverse (1/x)
X : Decimal <-> Hexadecimal conversion.
