Double-spaced Taskbar needs to be Single-spaced

by johnpriore / November 1, 2004 11:39 AM PST

Hello:

I would like for my gray taskbar in Windows XP to be single-spaced. Somehow it became double. I've tried right-clicking for menu options and nothing seems to work. Please advise.

Thanks,

John

Right click the task bar and uncheck "Lock the Taskbar". Then move your cursor onto the top edge of the bar until the arrow splits , and drag it up or down to the size you like. Relock the task bar then, if you like.

Dave that was the first thing I tried and it has not worked , even after repeated (like 20) efforts.

Any other ideas?

Did you left-click and hold the mouse when dragging it ?

Find the double dotted vertical lines and drag them to the left. Once you get it back to the normal position, your taskbar should return to its original size.

Thanks WAG. I tried that two or so days ago on my own and it worked. Yours was the answer. Thanks again.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
