You'll want to use the group policy editor for that.

Start/Run then type 'gpedit.msc'

Find "User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Start Menu and Taskbar"

Then on the right pane look for "Prevent changes to Taskbar and Start Menu Settings"

Hope that helps :lmao:

Edit: I'm an idiot ignore me sometimes

Ive have wrote a script to tick or untick this taskbar on top box. How do I now use this to determine if its ticked or not & to then untick if it is currently ticked..?

send("{LWIN}")

send("{APPSKEY}")

send("r")

winwait("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "Select this menu style for easy access to the Internet, e-mail, and your favorite programs.")

send("+{TAB}")

send("{LEFT}")

controlclick("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "Keep the &taskbar on top of other windows", 1101)

controlclick("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "OK", 1)

ControlCommand()

SmOke_N,

here is my script which works a treat.

send("{LWIN}")

send("{APPSKEY}")

send("r")

winwait("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "Select this menu style for easy access to the Internet, e-mail, and your favorite programs.")

send("+{TAB}")

send("{LEFT}")

ControlCommand ( "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "Keep the &taskbar on top of other windows", 1101, "unCheck", "")

controlclick("Taskbar and Start Menu Properties", "OK", 1)

I'm just curious if it wouldn't have been easier using Opt('WinTitleMatchMode', 4) + ClassNameNN + ControlHide() + Do your Thing + ControlShow()
