Hello,
After a bad manipulation I have now a 2 lines taskbar at the bottom of my monitor instead of a 1 line (as usual) taskbar.
I do not find how to go back to 1 line.
Recommendations?
Thanks in advance

Right click on an open space in the upper taskbar and click on Lock the Taskbar to remove the check mark. Click and drag the upper taskbar down to cover the original. When you have it situated where it fits exactly over the original click in the open space and click on Lock the Taskbar to lock it.

Hello DC3,
I have tried your suggestion but on my system it does not work.
All I can do is hiding the taskbar.
More suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

Hello,

On my system I had 2 taskbar lines :
1st line with the "start" and the programs that can be started and at the end the icons to the process/programs running and the time
2nd line with the links to the programs that have been started and running

What I have done : on my system the Taskbar is devided in 3 parts
1/ "Start", and icons to the programs I can start
2/ after there is a small "vertical line"
3/ the link to the programs that have been started are running
4/ the icons to the process/programs running, the time

After boot : no programs started, I move the "2/" the small vertical line to the 1st line of the taskbar and "bingo" the 2nd line is gone.

Thanks
