    Sizing handles missing

    In a friend's new Compaq laptop with Vista, the sizing handles on the quick
    launch tool bar are missing, so it's impossible to adjust the size of the
    toolbar. Any ideas?

    Right-click on the task bar and see if "Lock the taskbar" is ticked. If it
    is, untick it!
