JSI Tip 5078. You can NOT move or resize your Windows XP taskbar or any of the toolbars?

When you hover the cursor over the edge of the taskbar or toolbar, the resize pointer is NOT displayed?

If the taskbar is locked, the default for Windows XP Home Edition, you can NOT resize the taskbar or any toolbar.

To resolve this issue, right-click the taskbar and clear the Lock the Taskbar check mark.

You can also:

1. Open Control Panel / Taskbar and Start Menu.

2. Select the Taskbar tab.

3. Clear the Lock the taskbar check box.

4. Press Apply and OK.
