My laptop has a 14" widescreen: pretty wide, but not very high. I find it most convenient to have the Windows taskbar located on the left of the screen, since I can spare the width but not the vertical space.
However, when in the office, my computer sits in a docking station and is hooked up to a nice big squarish screen. Here I much prefer to have the taskbar in its default location i.e. at the bottom.
I know how to switch between the two taskbar locations manually in Taskbar Properties, of course. But I do this a few times daily, which is rather annoying. My question is: can I have the taskbar location change automatically?
For example, at startup (or wake up from hibernation) a script would run which detects either:
- Is screen shape taller than 4:3? (or whatever number)
- Is computer docked in docking station?
If yes, put taskbar at bottom, else at left.
Anyone know how to do this or can put me on the right track? Or is there already a utility out there that can do this?
