Haiku Task Manager as Top/Bottom Bar


Is there a way to make the Task Manager look like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:BeOS_Desktop.png? And if so, is there any way to move it to the bottom if I ever feel like pretending I am using an old version of Windows?


Sure Luiji, see the Desktop topic of the user guide.


If you look at this image http://haiku-os.org/docs/userguide/en/images/deskbar-images/deskbar.png, on the right side of ‘10:15’ you see a faint dotted vertical line. Click and hold on that line with the (left) mousebutton and then drag the mouse up or down to have the tracker display as a large horizontal bar either at the top or bottom of the desktop, let go of the mousebutton when you are satisfied with the result.

Thanks for the info! I guess I should have looked at the User Guide first. X|
