This BL***Y Taskbar!!!!!

I've been having this prob on and off for months now, and beg for help with it. It's driving me N-U-T-S!!

I usually keep taskbar locked. I use it for quick launch for frequently used progs. If I wanna add a prog to the taskbar, I unlock it, add the prog then lock it again. If I'm not VERRRY careful, the bally bar jumps to double it's height, and no matter how many times I tray and 'grab' the small dotted lines between start and the first small icon in quick launch, it will NOT resize to normal again. If I go to taskbar properties and untick 'show quick launch' then it reverts to normal size, but I WANT to show quick launch!!

HELLLLLP!

If you mean to keep the taskbar at its normal height then unlock it and move your cursor over the top edge, (not the dotted lines), until it changes to a double headed arrow, left click and drag down to normal size the right click and lock again.

You don't need to unlock the taskbar to put a new quick launch icon in, just drag it onto the taskbar to where you want it.

kept playing about with the bl***y thing after posting this and it finally gave in and did what I wanted. It's such a PAIN and I don't think I'm the only one that has this problem. Seems it's a bug with XP.

Thanks rawprawn, I'll try not unlocking it to add in future.

Cheers,
