    I've just gotten a new computer, with XP Service Pack2. I tired placing some of the icons from the desktop into the taskbar, like I used to do on my old machine, but it won't let me place them. Is there something I need to do so I can place these icons into the task bar?

    Task bar is unlocked. Sorry I forgot to put that in the original message.

    Hi ... Are you refering to the quick launch area in the taskbar ? If so . Just right click the taskbar , then go to toolbars and add a check mark on quick launch , afterward try adding your icons
