1.Problem: strange taskbar behavior - quicklaunch buttons only work when taskbar is vertical
hi there, i'm suffering some strange taskbar behavior. big surprise, right?
well, this is weirder than most of the problems i've seen on the deja
archives. the problem is this:
after a few days of using the new win xp pro, my taskbar's quicklaunch icons
disappeared. i unlocked the taskbar and dragged it up a bit and the icons
were still all showing during the dragging, but as soon as i stopped
dragging, they disappeared again. occasionally i would do this and they
wouldn't disappear, however when i would try to depress any of the
quicklaunch icons, nothing would happen; no depression, no quick launching
of my applications, nothing. okay, i turned off the quicklaunch toolbar,
turned it back on, same problem. also, when i try to bring applications to
the front of the desktop by clicking on their associated taskbar buttons,
nothing happens. right clicking won't give me the usual
minimize/maximize/etc menu either.
now for the weird part...
if i drag the taskbar into a vertical position on either the left or the
right of the desktop, everything appears to work fine. BUT of course now in
order to see which applications are running the taskbar has to be granted
way too much desktop real estate, since it needs to be dragged wide enough
to read application name text.
so this is weird. anybody know what's going here? any help you can offer
will be greatly appreciated.
much thanks in advance,
