Move taskbar to bottom?

#1

Post by theVenerable » Mon Aug 05, 2019 2:19 pm

Hi
I can only see 'vertical' or 'horizontal' options (left or top) for the taskbar.
How to put it on the bottom?
thanks

I saw this answer but nothing happens when I try it.
Not clear enough for me
'Right click panel -> properties and grab with mouse to move the highlighted panel'

in mx-tweak, on panel tab, there are more options for panel movement.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

If you're using MX Tweak, the button with "Top" is called a drop-down list, which means you get more choices if you click it. Windows and MacOS have exactly the same thing, so this isn't some MX weirdness. A drop-down list has that little down pointing icon.

Auto-hide the taskbar can also be activated by right-clicking with the pointer in the unused portion of the taskbar, and looking for the option.
