This is possibly an easy one but i can't see how to do it.

when I open programs the toolbar shows then clumped near the taskbar, I want then on the right near the start button. So how is this achived. Extra chocolate for the person with the solution...

A bit confused, sorry. You have toolbars at the bottom of the screen not the top and the Start button on the right not left?

in win xp any open programs were shown on the taskbar from left to right next to the start button. Now on vista and they are shown right to left next to the taskbar, how to I change it to left to right...

Mine are left to right.

I've had a play, so try this.

Is your taskbar locked? (right click and see if it is checked)

If not then I think the area available to the quick launch icons is too big. With the taskbar unlocked pull the vertical two row of dots to the left of your programs buttons to the left. It will realign things to the left, then lock taskbar.

I could not see the little dotty things due to the colour of the bar... cheers
