i didnt realize you were being serious, its simple really, just right click the taskbar,unlock the taskbar and drag it up or down, then lock it.

Hey that is good value then I shall get and use it for all my machines as I do like the grouping of your Office icons in particular.

Thanks again

you can set one icon as the main one so clicking the group icon opens the set star exe. i always have it set top left so at a glance i know which one it is, it displays a star in the pop up but it saves you having to hover,anyhow you soon get used to which is which, i also have the little tab above them set to hide.
its real easy to set up just play with it for a few mins and its done.
enjoy, i trialed it for them before it came out of beta . thought we mite get a freebie but no luck,
i bought it though as it was well worth it, once you get used to it you wouldnt want to do without it.
its like fences2 that has the same value. production wise.

Do this John, icons will group themselves.

My icons don't really go all the way top or bottom either.

Yeah Gary I was just intrigued by that grouping to be honest I have never taken much notice of the gap before and I am keeping the taskbar hidden on the laptop at the moment as it seems to be not a bad feature too

The open ones will fill up the bar. The unopened will not. At least that's the way mine are.

I figured it out. I had a folder (hidden) as a toolbar, which makes the icons have a little space under them. When I took the folder off the taskbar, it went back to normal.
