Greetings Everyone,

I have a strange problem which I can get solve. I usually keep my task bar at 2 levels high so that i can see the time, date, and day of week. When i restart, or shutdown and reboot my computer, windows will resize the task bar to 1 level smaller than what it was when it was shut down. If i have it at 1 level, the normal, and restart my computer, it will not be 0 levels high as if i don't like seeing the task bar. It is quite a nuisance to have to keep changing the size every time i restart my computer.

has anyone seen this before, or know how to get it to stay the size i tell it to? I always keep the task bar locked, so i don't accidentally change its size or move it, but that isnt the problem, windows does it on its own.

Thanks,

Mike

Have you tried unlocking the taskbar, then resizing it and then locking the taskbar again? OR try locking the taskbar, reboot the computer, unlock, resize, relock and rebooting to see if it stays locked.

Also sometimes resetting the "active title bar" to 19 in advanced appearance causes a modified theme to be run which can lock the size of the taskbar. Make sure you have the resize on the taskbar before you change the advanced appearance settings.
