task bar got massive

  Taw 21:45 18 Jul 2003

Dont know what i may have hit but my taskbar has doubled in size. the icons stack up on top of each other instead of side by side. The only way I can resize it is iif I remove the quick launch option. Any ideas ? xp home

When you hover over the top of the task bar you should get a double arrow, left click hold and drag down, this should then resize your task bar.

hold mouse over top task bar till pointer turns to arrow with 2 points then hold left mouse arm in and drag down.May work.

tried that recap, but while the quick launch is selected it will only resize up. If I select quick launch it doubles in size and will not resize. When I deselect quick launch it stays double the size but i can resize it to normal, strange or what

Yes, very strange.

Does it stay this way when you have restarted your computer?

sorry for the delay but yes it stays the same after a reboot

just resolved this, on the taskbar beside the start button is a vague blue dotted line. on moving this a few times it seems to have solved my probs
