Windows 7: How Can I Retain Second Taskbar?

How Can I Retain Second Taskbar?

Hi, I have searched this forum & can only find posts from several years ago about my query, so I'm hoping there is now a solution.

I have noticed there is a second taskbar that appears when I have more folders open than can be contained on the main taskbar. When this is the case a button appears with arrows to switch between the two taskbars. I cannot, however, find a way to have that second taskbar there always so I can accomodate more program start icons & group them to my preference.

Any solutions?

The arrows appear once your taskbar is full. If you want to always see more than the top line of the taskbar, unlock it from properties, drag the top edge upwards until you see all your shortcuts, then lock the task bar again. You can now drag and drop the icons to rearrange them.
