Unhappy PowerPack 2011 Taskbar and simplewelcome


Hi Guys!

Two Minor issues that are getting under my skin...

1. How do I add icons to the task bar? I have widgets set to unlock and still they will not budge - great adhesive btw.

2. Simplewelcome - How do you shut the damn thing off? As soon as the desktop shows itself..BLAM! Black screen with icons everywhere. Under the simplewelcome screen is security wanting the password for my NAS device which is what I want in the first place. Everytime after I bootup I have to minimize Simplewelcome in order to get at the security screen. I prefer JUST the desktop with simplewelcome laying down by its dish in the corner.

While you have the widgets unlocked. Right click the icon you want to add to the panel, then select Add To Panel from the menu that appears. To move your icons. click the little 'cashew' icon. Once you see the menu with Screen Edge, Height etc, put your mouse pointer on the icon you want to move, you should see the familiar crosshair icon, click hold and drag the icon to where you want it to be.

Do you mean kill SimpleWelcome permenantly? If yes, right click the icon in the lower left corner, then select the remove option. You can add the regular menu icon there in its place from your widgets selection.
