Windows 7: Change taskbar location when changing screen orientatn

Change taskbar location when changing screen orientatn

Hello,

I have a tablet PC that runs Windows 7 Ultimate. I frequently change back and forth from landscape to portrait orientations, depending if I'm using the keyboard or the touchscreen.
I want to know if there's a way (setting in windows, a script, etc) to automatically move the taskbar when I change the screen orientation. I prefer having the taskbar docked to the right while in landscape mode, but docked on the bottom while in portrait mode. Does anybody have an idea of how to automate this, rather than moving the taskbar by hand each time I change orientations?

Thank you,
Matthew Sklar

According to Microsoft sources there is no way to do this because the taskbar is user controlled.

Thank you for the response. Even though it can't be done, it's good to have some closure on the matter coming from Microsoft.
