Another taskbar bug? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want my taskbar at left, then I did it i found a trouble. I have all my applications pinned to the taskbar (see image 1).
    Then I moved the taskbar at left I got a scrollbar because I have a lot of  pinned applications. So I tried to resize the taskbar at right  and the scrollbar is still there (see image 2).

    Image 2: http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t262/Bf2Nicke/Other/Bump2.jpg

    Is it a bug or can I fix this with a setting?

    I can duplicate this issue on Windows 7 32bit. Your taskbar is more than one row of icons. when you move the taskbar to the left, it will not start a second column of icons, so you get the scrollbar. It doesn't matter how far out you drag the taskbar, only one column of icons ever shows up.
    Apparently this has been known, since I found it detailed here. I hope it's fixed in the final also.

  • I don't see the scrollbar in your second image. Do you? I know there are a few bugs in Windows 7 RC related to moving the taskbar that may be fixed by Windows 7 final.
