I have my windows 7 task bar set to 2 rows. I would like to arrange the items I have pined to the taksbar in 2 rows without waiting for them to be wrapped.

Is this possible in Windows 7? If so how do you do it?

You can't. Having multiple rows is only for overflow. And you can only re-order items, not re-position them arbitrarily into space that isn't occupied yet by the taskbar buttons.1

1 Educated guess, not knowledge. However, features don't exist by default, they have to be implemented by someone.

I know in XP and Vista, you could unlock the taskbar and drag it up, but I'm not sure if this works with 7.

You can do that, and I have done that. But what I want to do is arrange the icons in 2 rows. – David Basarab Jul 15 '09 at 11:23
