GPO - GREYED OUT TASKBAR OPTIONS

I've been through group policy a million times and I know how to allow taskbar and start menu properties, allow moving of taskbar, customization and sizing ect.  What I can't figure out is the following:

When you right click the Taskbar and get the context menu here's what's available:

Toolbars >(everything under this submenu is grey but toolbars itself isn't)
Cascade Windows (grey)
Tile Windows Horizontally (grey)
Tile Windows Vertically (grey)
Show the Desktop
Task Manager (grey)
Lock the Taskbar (checked)
Properties

By Enabling the ability to customize the start menu and taskbar everything not grey is totally fine (properties, show desktop, etc).  I can't for the life of me get the other options to un-grey themselves.  Anyone know where this setting is?
