Windows 7: How to let TaskBar remember icon sequence? No re-arrangement possible

How to let TaskBar remember icon sequence? No re-arrangement possible

On my Taskbar I have currently approx. 20 icons pinned.

When I want to re-arrange them (=change the sequence) then this is sometimes but not always possible.

Furthermore the sequence is NOT remembered. When I logoff and re-login the order is changed again.

How can I really re-arrange icons in my favorite order?

How can I tell Wint to rememeber this order beyond the next reboot?

it says winxp under your user name, and also in your system specs.

anyway, are you sure the icons in your taskbar are actually pinned, as i've never had any trouble rearranging them, and having them stick?

right-click on them, and if they offer an unpin option, then they are pinned.

sorry if i'm being really obvious here, but we need to start somewhere...

This is my first post, please bear with me :confused: I've done quite a few searches on Google in addition to these forums on the topic of desktop icon arrangement. Basically, I want Windows to auto arrange my icons on the right side of my screen by default rather than the left. I want to...

Taskbar arrangement
I always keep my taskbar along the left side of my screen. With Vista, I kept it wide enough to arrange my program icons in rows of 3, so I could fit all that I commonly use and see them all at once. With W7, I can't get them other than one single row; then you have to use the bar at the bottom to...
