My Quick Launch toolbar shows only 3 icons. The rest are only accessible thru a button labeled >>. I want to see more than 3 icons. I can't find any way to widen the Quick Launch toolbar. (I know how to widen it on Win 2000) but that option is not available in XP.

Is there a way to widen it?

Right click taskbar and click "Lock the Taskbar" (remove the check) - after that you can drag your >> to widen quick launch bar.  IMHO you should Lock the Taskbar again when you're done.

Right-click an empty space on the taskbar and make sure "Lock the taskbar" is unchecked.  Then position your mouse cursor on the | line to the right of >>.  Click hold and drag to the right.
