    Windows taskbar has tripled in height

    The taskbar in Windows 7 Home Premium has suddenly become annoyingly triple in height for no known reason. I have not been doing more than usual tasks, email, browsing in Firefox, photo editing. I cannot find any way to restore it to its normal single row height. Any clue would be appreciated....

    Sorry the image comes through so small.... It's a screen shot of the full screen width of the taskbar, with three rows of icons in the lower right instead of the usual one row....

    You can resize the taskbar to create additional space for buttons and toolbars.

    Right-click an empty area on the taskbar. If Lock the Taskbar has a check mark next to it, the taskbar is locked. Unlock it by clicking Lock the Taskbar, which removes the check mark.

    Point to the edge of the taskbar until the pointer changes into a double-headed arrow** Picture of an arrow that indicates the taskbar is ready to be resized, and then drag the border to make the taskbar the size you want.

    Rick, Thank you! As easy as that... DUHH! The taskbar was not locked, I had no idea the border could be moved so simply. A very quick solution to an annoying problem. It's most appreciated....

    You can also drag the Taskbar to the right or left side of the screen.
