When I open any folder inside Windows Explorer, only the first letter of the folder name appears on the taskbar, eg M Mary or M for My Documents or B for Bluetooth. I did resolve this problem earlier but have since forgotten the solution. Perhaps it has something to do with add-ons.

Any answers?

Sorry to ask this basic question, but is the taskbar locked and if so, when unlocked, can you expand that segment?

Answers:
To Top rung: no change by unlocking.

To others: I did read about google bar on the internet and no I never had google bar in the first place. The microsoft solution is for tasks that are not on my laptop. Sorry brothers, dead end.

Something to do with addons....

jack20--Forgive me for asking.  How many buttons (for open folders) are showing in the TaskBar?  Somewhere around 10, there is only space on a button for about one letter in the name.
From one reference "With many programs running at once, only the programs' icons and the first few letters of their names may be visible on the taskbar buttons."
You can create two TaskBars (and therefore more space on each button) by unlocking the TaskBar and dragging the top edge up a little.

Irrelevant suggestions. mostly.

I have found the solution and have this time noted it down. It is a crawler add-on in IE7 that when disabled restores the buttons to their fullnames.

Thanks anyway.
