Windows 7: Windows 7 Start Button repositioning

Windows 7 Start Button repositioning

Hello all,

I have a question for those who are more experienced than me.

I use either a 16'' 16:9 aspect ratio monitor on my laptop, or an external 22'' 16:10, and i've found that i can make much better use of it if a put the Taskbar on one side(left). This was easy enough, just unlock it and then, drag and drop. But now the Start Button wound up in the upper left corner of my screen.

Does anyone know if I can "mirror" the sidebar, so that the Start button ends up in the lower left corned, where it usually is, and of course, keep the Taskbar vertical, on the left side of my desktop?

Also how one might go about doing that:)?

Many thanks in advance,

It will not show its third state, when you click on it. I am wondering why this is..? How can I fix this?...
