I have occasionally seen a Taskbar with two rows of icons, but never multiple rows.
I feel sure that is where the problem lies.
I have never seen a taskbar icon row spinner either.
Can you supply a screen print of your Desktop with the Taskbar, so we can see what it looks like with all rows visible?
Save the screen print as a JPEG to your desktop, then upload it to a host like ImageShack or PhotoBucket or similar, then let us have the url web address of the image.
I have a question concerning the Windows taskbar and mouse control.
My issue usually happens whenever I have multiple rows of icons on my Windows taskbar and I want to click on one of them -- it usually take 2 tries.
The first time I click on the icon, it either acts like I never clicked it or the other row of taskbar icons appears (in that case, I can click the taskbar icon row spinner on the right and restore the desired row of icons and then click on the icon and the window I want then appears as it should have to begin with.) I have to go through the same thing even if my mouse pointer is in the center of the desired icon when I click on it (it acts like the icon is not even beneath the mouse pointer ? the initial click oftentimes does not open the window of the icon I am trying to click on).
Even though I eventually get where I need to be, this can be somewhat of an annoyance. Any ideas or suggestions on how eliminate all this unnecessary mouse clicking?
