OS11.1: Taskbar doesnt reach out to the edge

I just installed OS11.1 Final Release and it look good.

One problem is that the “taskbar” at the bottom doesnt goes from edge to edge on my screen. It only goes half way. I can’t find any way to adjust this.


One would need a litte more information about what DE (Desktop Environment) you’re running before giving exact instructions.

I’ll assume that you’re running kde 4.1.3, as I don’t know how the taskbar can even be changed in gnome 2.24.1. Did you change your monitor settings in Sax2 after the install? I noticed a similar “bug” when I installed.

So, right clicking on the taskbar and clicking “Panel Settings” will open up a menu on top of the taskbar. Green and red arrows will appear, and moving one set of them to the outside will expand your taskbar. Problem solved, I hope…

And in case that option doesn’t show up immediately, you just have to click on “Unlock Widgets” first, and then it will be available.

Good Luck :slight_smile:

As frosch62 suggested:

  1. Right click on an empty part of the DESKTOP
  2. Choose ‘Unlock’ widgets from the menu
  3. Now right-click on an empty part of the PANEL (at the bottom of the screen)
  4. Choose ‘Panel Settings’
  5. Drag the right arrow (I believe top right, otherwise bottom) all the way to the right edge of the screen
  6. To adjust the height, click the ‘height’ button with your left mouse key pressed and drag up or down
  7. Right-click on an empty part of the desktop again and lock it with choosing ‘Lock Widgets’

If i right-click and choose “Lock Widget” then it adjust perfect!
I small bug :slight_smile:

Now am happy!
