    Auto-hide for toolbars not available (XPsp2+)

    I have had for two years my quick launch toolbar with auto-hide on the entire right side of my screen. (like a MAC) I moved it to the top with an accidental click and flip. It was stubborn at the top, and would not move back. I then unchecked quicklaunch and then re-enabled. Now all toolbars are missing the ability to auto-hide, the text is there for auto-hide but is not accessable. I ran chkdsk, sfc/scannow, sfc/purgecache. Anyone have an idea on how to fix this?

    I am now repaired. <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23> I found I needed to throw the toolbar against the side of the screen so it would be full length without any adjusting. If I placed the toolbar on the desktop then resized it I would still be missing the ability to auto-hide. Go figure <img src=/S/confused3.gif border=0 alt=confused3 width=45 height=45> Or could it have been the installation of Operav8.5 last night causing the wierd behavior? I uninstalled it and all is well. <img src=/S/exclamation.gif border=0 alt=exclamation width=15 height=15>

    If you grab it by the title bar & drag it all the way to one side, the auto hide will be available. If it is simply on your desktop, the autohide will be dimmed.
    Hope this helps,
