XP Pro/SP2 Taskbar problem.

I just did my first os install. It's working like it should but I did something wrong while I was setting up XP.
First the taskbar went to the right side but dragging it back to where it belonged was no problem.
However, all my taskbar icons are sitting in the far right corner 2 abreast, stacked on top of each other and very small.
I have not been able to correct this and did not find any refence to this particular situation when I did a search here.
Hope somebody can help.

in screen properties, perhaps you have auto arrange on and that locks them in place

- right hand click empty area of screen
- choose: auto arrange
(if it is ticked, untick it)

same idea

to change desktop icon size

runbox command
- press keyboard buttons: winkey + r
- paste to slot: %userprofile%\desktop
- press: enter
(desktop file opens)
- right hand click white area
- choose: view
- choose: tiles

btw, %userprofile% in the runbox is a nifty trick, work with editing favorites too
