    My taskbar has morphed to "double size" wide - how do I restore it to single width??

    I replied to your first question with a possible solution, that is why I questioned your double query.

    above is the thread to your first question, below is the reply to that question:

    hover the cursor over the edge of taskbar till 2 headed arrow appears, hold down left mouse key and drag down till task bar is the correct size and release.

    First, unlock the Taskbar (right-click on Taskbar, uncheck
    "Lock the Taskbar")

    Click and drag the separator bar over to the right of the Taskbar
    (It's the separator that looks like four dots and then three dots
    running side by side vertically). It seems to allow you to create a
    double-decker effect with the Taskbar. Once you drag the lower one to
    the right of the Taskbar, it allows you to resize the Taskbar.
