    I have a problem that appears to have been floating around awhile but I have yet to find the fix.

    I resize the quicklaunch toolbar to the size that I want (so that all of my icons show) but when I reboot, the toolbar is shrunk down to where it only shows four icons.

    I have a total of three computers and two have this problem and one does not.

    Does anyone know what the problem/fix is?

    P.S. I found this old thread but it doesn't say if there is a fix for it.

    you try just logging out, and see if it saves it?

    i searched a bit and found a few things that might help, though i haven't tested this one, so back up your registery first..

    Saving Desktop Settings

    If your desktop or folders on your desktop do not retain their settings:

    Start Regedit Go to

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Program Manager\Restrictions

    Create or edit the DWORD value NoSaveSettings

    Give it a value of 0

    Logging off and logging back on does the same thing as a reboot, it resets the toolbar to where it only shows 4 icons. I checked the reg entry listed above and it is already set to 0.

    Have you tried locking the taskbar after resizing?

    edit: Also...one thing I have found is that some themes just absolutely will not keep the taskbar resized. I don't know why...but it does happen. I would suggest switching themes just to see if it works.

    Locking the toolbars does not help and I am running windows classic theme on all of the machines so if a theme were to work I would hope that the classic would be one of them.

    Another solution maybe. Are you using the language bar? If so...turn the language bar off and try.
