  • Task Bar Increases in Thickness - How to return it to single line ?

    I'm not certain my header to this post is too clear but I'll explain further :-

    I have the Task Bar showing several Quick Launch icons which are all displayed in a single line which is about 1 cm thick. It also shows two little white "drag bars" at each end of the list of icons.

    From time to time , it would seem after clicking somewhere on the desk top , -( I can't be certain what exactly I clicked on , I'm afraid , the result happened so fast ) - the Task Bar thickens to show width for two lines of icons . This thickening also applies to the part which contains the clock on the R.H. side of the Task Bar.

    I then try to reduce the width of the T.B. by dragging the top edge downwards but this does not work.

    I can increase the size of the T.B. but am unable to decrease it .

    It would seem that the T.B. has expanded to include more icons than would fit on one line but I haven't done this.

    Can anyone explain what I must do to return the T.B. to its original one line thickness, please ?

    Do you remember when it started doing that so you could try a System restore.
    I'd also do a Antispyware scan (Or several).
    Finally you could give this tool a go: http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/taskbarplus!.htm
