Locking the Taskbar in XP

Stuart from Wisconsin asks:

All of a sudden my Windows XP Taskbar has a weird double line on top of it. What gives?

I’m sure there are a lot of XP users out there who have seen this oddity while traveling in the wonderful world of Microsoft. Turns out, though, that it’s nothing serious and extremely easy to fix.

If your Taskbar in Windows XP looks like this…


…it simply means that it’s unlocked.

So, to fix this Right-Click and make sure there’s a checkmark next to Lock the Taskbar.


Voila! No more silly double line above your taskbar.
