tbird1938, The instructions at the link below should be of help.
Some how my taskbar has 2 rows in it. the quick launch area is ok but my right side notification area is 2 rows deep and i can't change it back to one row deep. I tried clicking on it and draging the the bouble arrow down but nothing happens. i unlocked the taskbar and tried everything i can think of. there ore only a few, i think, icons on the right 2 on top 2 in the second row. the web sites i visit are also showing up in the second row. please help. I'm running windows XP Media center 2005 Thank you
