Hello GermaniCus, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Check to see if using OPTION ONE in the tutorial below may be able to help by enabling the ability to move the taskbar location.

Taskbar - left side Start button on the bottom??

Honestly, I don't understand why Microsoft didn't design it that way!
I came here looking for a solution to the Taskbar placement. I like it on the left, but can't understand why there isn't an option to have the Start button at the bottom (just seems intuitive to me) .

Does anyone know of a hack for this?

This portable freeware will now allow you to move the Start Button and the Start Menu to either the center of the Taskbar or far right\bottom, depending on Taskbar location.

I tried installing it and it threw an error message that I couldn't easy troubleshoot, so I just restored my system and moved on. I'm using Win7PRo 64-bit, 8GB RAM. Sure would like that Start Button, etc at the bottom left but don't have time to fuss.

I really like this site, I didn't realize that Windows 7 had an option to move the taskbar left, right, bottom or top. I kept trying to drag back to the bottom with no success, but as usual the info I needed was here. Thanks again for all the hard work that goes into running this site and getting the correct answer to problems.
