Windows 7: Moving the taskbar.

15 Feb 2010   #1

Windows 7
Moving the taskbar.

I don't know if this is possible but here we go...

I want to move the task bar at the bottom to the left. But I want the start button to remain at the bottom of the screen.

Now, when I simply drag the task bar to the left I get the start button moving to the top... Is it possible to make it stay at the bottom somehow or if I want it to the left do I have to keep it at the top?

Its pretty crap but im afraid the start menu placement is stuck to where Microsoft wants it . You do have an option by using a 3rd party application or two to remove the start orb and replace it with a custom icon that you can pin to your Superbar...BUT the start menu will always be in its original position. ( next to the start orb)

START KILLER to lose the start orb and OPENSTARTMENU to create a shortcut to the start menu that you can pin anywhere on your Superbar.

Hope that helps ... and yea it be so cool to open the start menu where you wanted it

Moving Desktop Icons to the Taskbar
I just got a Dell XPS laptop, x64, and, so far, I have no real issues with Windows 7. I like a clean desktop and, on my XP machines, moved the desktop icons with ease. With the new operating system, I've done that, too, but some icon cannot be moved in the traditional way. Is there a way to move My...
