Showing Icons In Taskbar ?

Hello,

First, thanks to all for all the previous help; appreciate it very much.

Re the bar on the bottom, which I guess is called the Taskbar:

Have several icons on it, which is fine.

But it won't accept any more new ones if I try to drag some onto it.

I right clicked on the bar and pulled up the Taskbar Tab under properties.
I have the Lock The Taskbar box un-checked, and have also selected
Never Combine next to the Taskbar Buttons: line.

Seems like it's still trying to pin the icons to others, and Not show them visually as completely separate icons in the bar.

What might I be doing wrong ?

BTW: also, any way of having the icon names Permanently displayed next to the icon on top or below the particular icon ?

Thanks,
Bob

Thanks,
Bob

Have you tried changing the size of the Taskbar Icons I have a pile of them in there and very little on the desktop now.

I tried to pin both programs and files to my taskbar, after reading your question. It did not work and here is why. You must right click on the task bar first to unlock it. The any files or programs that you want to drag will be pinned. I think it will also be pinned to the start menu
