Rearranging your taskbar

You can customize your taskbar by making its size two or more rows or moving it to any side of your monitor.

First unlock the taskbar. Right click an empty space on the taskbar and deselect Lock the Taskbar.

To make the taskbar larger grab the edge of the taskbar and pull it up.






You can then set it so that your Quick Launch icons get a whole taskbar row to themselves. To do this, position your mouse cursor over the dotted Quick Launch border (the cursor will change to the resize arrow). Click and hold the left mouse button, and then drag the Quick Launch region below the task list.










To move your taskbar to any corner of your monitor, Click an empty space on the taskbar, and then hold down the mouse button as you drag the taskbar to one of the four edges of the desktop. When the taskbar is where you want it, release the mouse button. Getting it into the right position can be a bit tricky and may take a few tries.











You can also add more toolbars to the taskbar. Right click a open area of the taskbar and choose Toolbars then whatever one you want.
