I am not a programmer. I look at a few code examples and honestly, I do not even understand where to begin to modify them.
I need to do a simple scrip that will change the current windows taskbar settings:
Lock the taskbar = On
Auto-hide the taskbar = Off
taskbar on screen = Bottom
Apply the current settings.

...Change the taskbar setups here

Is there anyone who knows how to do that in a very simple way?

Thank you

For moving the taskbar perhaps MouseClickDrag.

When you change the taskbar position manually, this registry value is updated. However, I don't know if there's a way, after writing to the registry, to trigger Windows to update the taskbar position.

Code: Select all

q:: ;get taskbar position (hex data)
RegRead, vValue, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects2, Settings
;RegWrite, REG_BINARY, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects2, Settings, % vValue
Clipboard := vValue
MsgBox, % vValue
Here's a not-too-bad way to move the taskbar to an edge.

Code: Select all

q:: ;set taskbar position (tested on Windows 7)
vPos := "Bottom"
;vPos := "Left"
;vPos := "Right"
;vPos := "Top"
Run, % "rundll32 shell32.dll,Options_RunDLL 1" ;Taskbar and Start Menu Properties, Taskbar tab
WinWait, Taskbar and Start Menu Properties
hWnd := WinExist()
WinActivate, % "ahk_id " hWnd
Control, ChooseString, % vPos, ComboBox1, % "ahk_id " hWnd
ControlClick, Button9, % "ahk_id " hWnd ;OK
