Hello and thank you,
indeed, it removed it but did not shift the rest of the taskbar right to accomodate for the new space. It still looks better and I'll keep it like that, I'm still open to suggestions as if it's possible to shift the taskbar right. Here is a screenshot of the result: ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting
(stupid imageshack requires registration for the direct link, yet another failure)
Thanks for your help Marsmimar.
PS : how do I thank your answer as I saw on other forums or otherwise mark it as best answer?
