    Hi can someone tell me how to move the quick launch bar to the center of
    the taskbar the right way.
    I have done it some how by sliding one icon to the left and sliding it
    back to the right fast so it jumps over the little dashed line but it is
    by acident when it works.
    There must be a right way to do this ...
    XPpro.
    Thank you for any help

    Toolbars may NOT be in the center of the Taskbar, unless there is
    something between them and the Start button. In other word, the Quick
    launch Toolbar can't "float", it will be "against" something on the left
    or right end of the taskbar.

    I disagree with Bob I. I now have my quick launch toolbar in the center of
    the taskbar. What I did was open up the web browser and minimized it. Then
    grab the side of the quick launch bar (the part you can move) and drag it
    past the minimized browser in the taskbar. Not sure why this works though...

    I moved mine to the middle too.

    I don't like it, but I moved it. Now I will move it back.

    Are you aware that the Quick Launch Bar can be completely dragged off
    the taskbar and kept on any of the other three sides of the screen?
    Particularly in these days of wide screen monitors, you might want to
    consider putting it on the left or right side of the screen.

    Another alternative to consider is dragging the Task Bar to the left
    side of the screen and the Quick Launch Bar to the right side of the
    screen. On a wide screen, I think this makes better use of the screen
    real estate than keeping them on the bottom.

    That's because you didn't comprehend what you read. Try again.

    "Toolbars may NOT be in the center of the Taskbar, unless there is
    something between them and the Start button. In other word, the Quick
    launch Toolbar can't "float", it will be "against" something on the left
    or right end of the taskbar."
