Customizing the Taskbar

The taskbar serves as a program launcher and an application switching platform. Open applications are represented by buttons on the taskbar. Click a program button to make that program your active window. The taskbar also displays a set of icons that are indicators for utility programs and hardware such as PC cards, so you can check the current status of items or change control settings. The clock appears next to these icons. Toolbars also appear on the toolbar, such as the Quick Launch toolbar that gives you shortcuts to Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, the desktop, or the channels.

By default, the taskbar appears at the bottom of your screen. You can change its position so that it appears at the top, left, or right of the screen. In Figure 20.6, the taskbar is on the left side of the screen.
