Windows 7: How do I rearrange tool bars?

How do I rearrange tool bars?

I have two toolbars in IE 9 that are both very short. I would like to merge them on the same line. I used to be able to do this by clickin on the handle on the left end, then move it when a 4 point arrow showed up, which it is now NOT showing up.

Any help?

You should be able to right click on any toolbar line, make sure "lock toolbar" is unchecked. Then go to the left side of a toolbar and drag it.

I know I sound like an idiot, but this is just not working. When I right click on a tool bar, all I get is the toolbar menu to pick which ones I want. The Lock Tool bars is NOT checked. When i go to move the toolbars, the ones I want to merge will not.

After you've unlocked your toolbar, you have to hover your mouse slowly over the right or left edge of the toolbar to display the double-headed arrow icon. Then you can resize it.

I don't get a double vertical arrow, only a horizontal one.

Even better! You should be able to resize your toolbar by dragging the edge of it, once the double arrow icon appears.

I agree that it should, but it doesn't resize.

See if either of these will offer any assistance:

Are you talking about browser toolbars? or your Taskbar?
