    Ok, here is my question.. I like having my taskbar at double the normal height.. but my problem is that when i restart my computer it always reverts back to single height and i have to set it each time i boot up.. does anyone know how to fix this or where in the registry the taskbar height is located?? I have tried locking the taskbar and everything... it just wont stick!

    Are you using any themes or visual styles? That might be doing it. Mine is set the same & gives me no problems although I do run styles.

    I have used a double height taskbar for sometime and i have have found that certain visual styles will reset the taskbar height at startup. Its damn annoying and has made me reject many themes

    I used to work for me.. but i dont remember when it exactly stoped working. And it doesnt work on any of my themes... not even the default XP Themes.. errrr.. there has got to be a registry entry or something for it

    Is it locked? (may be silly question, you've prolly tried that)

    Try disabling theme service, and rebooting - see if it resets it. If it doesn't, you know it's the theme that's knocking it back to default.

    Thats what I was gonna say. Locking it well....locks it. It makes it so that no changes can be made.
