A new tutorial titled How to Lock and Unlock the Windows 7 Taskbar was added by BleepingComputer.com. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.

A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:

The Windows 7 taskbar is one of the most important parts of the Windows 7 user
experience and customizing it to your specific needs will go a long way in making
Windows 7 easier to use. Unfortunately, a quick slip of the mouse or adding
new items to the taskbar can change a configuration that you have gotten used.
That is why it is important to customize the toolbar by pinning items and configuring
toolbars so that it works well for you and then lock it into that state so that
it does not get changed by mistake. In the future if you want to make a change,
you can then unlock the taskbar, make your changes, and then lock it again.
This tutorial will walk you through two methods that will allow you to lock
and unlock your Windows 7 taskbar.

We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
