I have several toolbars on my desktop, one is My Computer, the others are custom shortcut bars. (Figure 1) I set them to "Autohide" but whenver I logoff, the Autohide setting is removed. Is there a way to force Windows to remeber the autohide setting accross sessions?

I am running the Virtual Desktop Manager Powertoy for Windows XP, I have a feeling that this may have something to do with it.


Pertinant Info:

MS Windows XP Pro SP2

You may be on to it. Although I do not know an exact reason for your issue, I suspect the same thing. MS Powertoys, although distributed by Microsoft, are not supported by Microsoft and they are not officially a part of Windows - for good reason. They are not perfect. They can create issues.

Personally, I like the Wallpaper Changer - so far no issues.
