Taskbar icons in Windows Xp are not aligned

Hello,

My taskbar icons(Desktop,IE) are not aligned, it went near the time(Almost right).When I click on the slider bar the icons come in between taksbar not next to Start.All the Internet explorer files are coming in between start and icons.

Thanks

Unlock the taskbar, and drag the 'handle' for your quicklaunch bar up and out of the taskbar entirely.  Once you have done that, drag it 'into' the start button, and it should arrange itself with the normal configuration.

Right click the taskbar and uncheck "Lock the Taskbar" This will allow you to drag and drop them into the correct position.

Also, when the taskbar is unlocked, you can double-click the 'handle' to alternately expand a toolbar to take the entire width available, or shrink to the minimum size to contain its icons.

But, I cannot move them next to start.I can see slider in between them, like IE or Folders in between them.

If you right-click an empty spot on the Taskbar, is there a check next to 'Lock the Taskbar'?

Hello,

For your reference, I added the respective Screenshot, where you can see Browser,Folders,..ext are in between Start and Desktop icons.

I just need alignment of those, I locked the taskbar.

yea, that's exactly what I told you to do. I was thinking right. Right click anywhere on the blue bar (taskbar) where there is no icons. Then uncheck "Lock the Taskbar". You will see 2 lines appear just before the Firefox icon. Click and drag this until it is next to the start menu. Then right click empty space on the taskbar and recheck the "Lock the Taskbar".
