Right click on the start bar (on a blank space not on the start button) if there is a check mark in front of the LOCK THE TASK BAR left click on the lock the taskbar to remove it. if no check is there the click on your desktop to make that go away. next take your mouse arrow to the top of your taskbar until the arrow becomes 2 arrows one pointing up and one pointing down left click and hold it while you drag downward until it is the size you want... right click on the taskbar again and lock it if you wish.

More Tips For Windows 7


So I been Messing Around With Windows 7 and Created a list of new things for people that don't know much about windows 7. <br /> <span> <p><b>Minimize (Almost) All Windows:</b> <b>Win + Home</b><br /> <p>This combo lets you send all open windows packing--except the one that's currently active. Sure beats clicking Minimize on a bunch of individual windows. When you tap the shortcut a second time, it restores all previously open windows.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Make Windows Transparent: Win + Space</b><br /> <p>This is the keyboard equivalent of mousing over the transparency tool in the right corner of the System Tray--great for those times when you need to something on the desktop (like a gadget) but don't want to minimize all your windows. After tapping <i>Win-Space</i>, your windows will stay see-through until you let go of the Windows key.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Quick-Launch Taskbar Apps: Win + (1-9)</b><br /> <p>As you know, Windows 7 makes it a snap to "pin" frequently used programs to the taskbar. But did you also know that these programs are automatically assigned a number and corresponding Windows-key shortcut? Just press <i>Windows-1</i> to launch the first pinned program (the one closest to the Start button), <i>Windows-2</i> to launch the next one, and so on. Fastest app-launching known to man! Except, of course, for this...<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Quick-Launch Any App: Hotkey</b><br /> <p>Like Vista before it, Windows 7 lets you assign a quick-launch hotkey to any installed program. Just right-click the program's icon, choose <i>Properties</i>, and then click the <i>Shortcut</i> tab. Click once in the <i>Shortcut key field</i>, then press the hotkey combo you want to assign (<i>Ctrl-Shift-H</i>, for instance). Click <i>OK</i> and you're done! Assuming you have a good memory, app launching doesn't get any faster than this.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Dock Active Windows: Win + Left or Right Arrow</b><br /> <p>A great shortcut for users with widescreen monitors, this combo docks the active window to the left or right half of the screen (depending on which arrow you tap), at the same time maximizing it top-to-bottom.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Magnify Your View: Win + (+)</b><br /> <p>Windows 7's built-in magnifier lets you zoom in wherever you place your cursor. Just tap <i>Win-plus</i> (that's the Windows key and the plus key) to enable the magnifier and set a 200% zoom level. When you mouse to any edge of the screen, your view scrolls accordingly. The more you tap the keys, the higher the zoom. Of course, you can just as easily zoom out again with <i>Win-minus</i>.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Open Presentation Settings: Win + P</b><br /> <p>Good news for business users constantly struggling to get Windows to cooperate with<a href="http://www.pcworld.com/products/home_theater/projectors.html">projectors</a>: A quick tap of <i>Win-P</i> activates a monitor-settings panel. Click <i>Duplicate</i> or <i>Projector only</i> to send your display to the big screen, or <i>Extend</i> if you've connected a second monitor and want extra screen real estate.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Create a New Folder: Ctrl + Shift + N</b><br /> <p>Forget the old way of creating new folders. In Windows 7, all it takes is a tap of <i>Ctrl-Shift-N</i>. This works in any open Explorer window, but also on the desktop. After the new folder appears, just type in a name as usual and hit <i>Enter</i>.<br /> <p><br /> <p><b>Bring Gadgets to the Fore: Win + G</b><br /> <p>Now that Windows' gadgets are no longer relegated to the Sidebar, they're free to sit anywhere on your desktop. Of course, that means they can get obscured by other windows. As you now know, a tap of <i>Win-Space</i> makes those windows temporarily see-through, but what if you want to put the gadgets on <i>top</i> of your windows? No problem: Just tap <i>Win-G</i>.<br /></span>

Some horizontal lines are seen on my laptop which are very annoying and gets removed only when i up down my screen.this also doesnt help much. and there a wide black veritcal space or gap on the right side...


The connections on the lcd display are bad - to fix that you must dismantle the lid of the laptop and reseat them. This is a big, delicate job; if you don't have the required experience to do it safely then take it to a repair shop.

Does the panasonic DMC FZ20 take HC SD cards?


I have this camera, and have just tried putting an 8Gb SDHC card into it. As soon as I tried to take a picture I got beeping and "Memory Card Error" across the center of the screen.

I never tried this before because a gigabyte has always been plenty of space for my uses. I suppose you could just carry a few spare smaller memory cards instead of trying to fit a big one. They take up less space than film!

How do I put icons in my lower toolbar eg.


Hi,
I've never done more than read forums before---I can't usually answer the questions, but this one I can. You can drag them from the desktop. If the one you want isn't on the desktop, send it to the desktop from the folder and then drag it to Startbar, as I call it. I hope this was helpful for you. It'll go on the Quick Launch that way.
Or you could add toobars by right clicking on the Startbar. Some are already there, but you can add whichever ones you like from the folders or the desktop.
Enjoy the rest of your day.

Not enough memory ALL THE TIME!!


how big is the drive?
how much space do you have free?
how big is your paging/virtual memory file?
how big is your recycle bin?
all of these take space too.
you will need approx 20% of drive space free if it has a system installed on it.
i think you may need a bigger drive or another one for files etc so the system can run unobstructed.
