Windows 7: Space below custom tool bars on taskbar

Space below custom tool bars on taskbar

As you can see, I don't have any apps pinned to my taskbar, but I do have custom toolbars with some shortcuts. I like to use large icons and have the custom tool bars on their own row.

I can't seem to get the custom toolbars to be at the very bottom of the taskbar. It insists on having a gap of wasted space below my custom tool bars.

How can I get my custom tool bars moved to the very bottom of the screen? Is there a setting or registry hack, or something?

Hello Herbert,

Welcome to 7 Forums.

Looking at the pic, I'd say you had the taskbar locked. Rt. click the taskbar and deselect 'Lock the Taskbar'.

Hope this helps.

Yes, the taskbar is locked, but even after unlocking it I can't get the custom tool bar to move to the very bottom.
