Default XP SP3 taskbar buttons shrunk to icon and a single letter


To the right of my Quick Launch, the area in which the showing program has its button location...the button has shrunk to just an icon and a single letter. How can I return to the default of the extended button and icon?

Default fixed task bar?


That fix did not work. I tried docking it to the four sides...nope. So, I turned everything off/on and it appears to have gone away on its own with an extra push by the file below.

Where is the cmd in the registry to put the buttons into that short form?

Or it could have been this file, I picked up along the way. My head is getting mushier by the day. Let Google find it. It almost seems to me it was Kelly's Korner. xp_taskbar_desktop_fixall.vbs
