windows not minimizing to the taskbar

  genuinefake 10:38 24 Oct 2005

When i click on the minimize button it does not go to the taskbar (next to the quick launch bar). Right now i am going though my windows using alt+tab.

I can't seem to find an option to get it back. Help.

Im using windows xp home.

You mean any Windows er..window? Or a specific application?

possibly run sfc or system restore?

just windows/as in programs that minmize to the taskbar

So do you mean the minimize button does nothing? Do you have TweakUI installed?

the minimize button does work but it does not go down to the taskbar.

The windows just reduce in size? Do they all reduce to the same size and position?

the minimize and appears to go down but doesnt go to where it should(taskbar).

(I've just downloaded TweakUI, ill write back to see if it helps)

ive looked through tweakUI but can't find anything that'll help :(

I was just wondering because there are a few tweaks for the taskbar under the Desktop heading in TweakUI, grouping and such like, if you don't have it installed it's not part of the problem, but perhaps it will help. Where do the windows go then? Out of sight?

yep, they just minimise out of sight.
