Where do you have your taskbar

I've just moved mine to the left, seems good there with a widescreen monitor.

I have it at the bottom, but with auto hide. I've always had it this way and have become used to it. I did try to set the taskbar at left as I use a 24" widescreen, but no it's not for me...

Tried it on the left, but wasn't what I'm used to. I like it on the bottom. At times I use auto hide.

I use mine at the bottom two. I do a lot of split screens, so putting it on the sides is not practical for me.

Bottom. Did try at right but then clock didn't show date, so this is no go.

Tried it diagonally across the screen but seems it's not the best idea , i'm using it at the left now which i like for widescreen monitors but i would like that it was possible to have it at the left but flipped so the start button is at the bottom, i think that would be the best of both worlds.

@Kika, the clock does show the date here, i have it with large buttons, are you using it with small buttons?
