I just recently added the Windows Search app to my XP computer. It places a small search bar on the right hand side of the taskbar. On my screen, the input box is about and inch wide.
After rebooting, the input box now takes up about 1/2 of the task bar (sbout 8 inches on my screen) instead of a small portion. I cannot figure out how to re-size it. Opening more applications does not appear to "push" the search box over. If you click on it and go to options, there are not any resize options. It does not appear that I can grab onto the sides and resize like I can with other windows. As a last resort, I even tried help, but did not find anthing about size, resize, or width.
I'm an IT guru by trade, but this simple task has me a little stumped.
