Taskbar Toolbars move on restart RRS feed

  • Question

  • My taskbar toolbars move when PC is restarted. They work normally otherwise. I can move them back to where I want and if PC only sleeps, they are fine. But if I restart PC, the all move to right top row and are not expanded at all. Win7 Pro 64. Thanks, Duane

    Please take the following stepst to rebuild the Icon cache to have a check.
    1.Open  File Explorer > Folder Options > Views to show Hidden System Files.
    2.Go to C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local folder and delete the hidden IconCache.db file.

    If the issue persists, please login with another account or create a new account to have a check.

  • Sleep mode is different then Restart. When it's wakes up from sleep mode then it turns back from the state where it's stopped. But restarting applies configurations. 

    First check your registry for any issue, 

    Second restore your computer to an earlier date

    * Taskbar configuration is here in registry: Hot Key Current User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\Advanced

    Here is my configuration. If anything is different in your computer change it as show in my registry. Later after restarting your computer try to move again. Restart and check again. Also lock the taskbar after moving.
