Hi Everyone,

I need to write a small app that moves the windows taskbar back to it's default location (on the bottom of the desktop) if it is somewhere else, for example, moved to the side.

I have found code in VB6 on how to hide/show the taskbar, but nothing on how to dock the taskbar somewhere programmatically.

Thanks.

why would it matter where the taskbar is? i'm not being skeptical here, i'm just curious (yes i'm one who prefers the taskbar @ the top and would immediatly delete any program that moves it anywhere else)

JuggaloBrotha-

The reason why I need to be able to move the taskbar through code is for our clients. We have some clients that are not computer savvy enough to follow through on directions either through email or over the phone on how to get their taskbar back to the default settings and location. Most users keep the taskbar on the bottom. My friend keeps it on the left, and as you said, you keep it on the top. Hope this sheds some insight into why I am looking for the code. Thanks.
