WhiteMouse Posted May 6, 2010 Share Posted May 6, 2010 Me and a buddy are working on a project for school. The guidelines for the project was our choice of manipulating windows in some way. BTW the class is Computer Securities. We want to move the Windows Taskbar from its default position to the right, up top, to the left, then to the bottom again in a loop only using a .bat file w/ out restarting the computer. We've tried changing the registry file HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams\Desktop\TaskbarWinXP then restarting the explorer, but it isn't working. @echo off echo Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 >> up.reg echo. >> up.reg echo [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams\Desktop] >> up.reg echo "Toolbars"=hex:11,00,00,00,00,00,00,00 >> up.reg echo "TaskbarWinXP"=hex:0c,00,00,00,08,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,aa,4f,28,68,\ >> up.reg echo 48,6a,d0,11,8c,78,00,c0,4f,d9,18,b4,0c,03,00,00,e0,0c,00,00,00,00,00,00,1e,\ >> up.reg echo 00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,1e,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,01,00,00,00 >> up.reg start "D:\Documents and Settings\student\Desktop\up.reg" taskkill /f /Im explorer.exe explorer.exe to get the right info for the registry file, we moved the bar manually then restarted the comp, and then got the correct hex out of it. I guess my questions would be is this the correct file to change for what we want and what errors do you guys see in the above code. BTW the code is for moving the taskbar to the top. Thx for your help. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
