    I am using OE6, and I like the icons in my toolbar to be small with the name under each one. I currently have 9 across with room for some more, hoever, the setting on the toolbar layout is large icons, text under icon.

    Occasionally, I will go to OE (not re-opening the programming, just maximising it) and the icons will be the same height as they were before, but they will be spread across the taskbar, they will all be double in width, and now not all of them will fit on the taskbar.

    When I open the customise toolbar, the settings are the same, still large icons, text under, and the only way I can get my icons back to how I want them to appear is to change them to no text, then to small icons, then back to large with text under.

    Does anyone know how I can get this to stop from happening, and if it is possible to lock the toolbar once it is the way I want it to look?

    Do a updated scan for virus. Use a firewall like the one via the colored link at bottom of my post.

    Maybe I confuse easily....but I don't understand what you want to do.

    Why do you change them to "large with text under" if you like them small?

    Is this the setting you want?
    show text labels
    small icons
