This is a feature that windows has had since 1995. So I would like to get this idea into linux mint.
Allow me to drag the top part of the task bar, so that I can set it to have multiple rows. It seems that on any linux distribution I've tried, all that does is make the stuff inside it bigger. I've always configured the task bar in windows to have 2 rows minimum because I tend to have a lot of stuff open. It also spreads the icons in the system tray so that they are using the multiple rows too.
Here's how it should work:
1. Taskbar starts out on the bottom
2. I right click on it and select "lock the taskbar" that has a tick beside it.
3. This unlocks the taskbar
4. I then see a section where I can expand the area where the start button is
5. I move my mouse cursor to the top of the taskbar until an arrow with an arrow pointing up and an arrow pointing down shows up
6. I hold down my mouse button and drag it so that the row increases from one to two.
7. I can keep doing this until I am satisfied with the number of rows I want.
8. When I am done, I let go of the mouse button.
9. I right click on the taskbar and click on "lock the tarkbar" that does not have a tick beside it this time.
10. I repeat that and now see a tick beside "lock the taskbar".
11. With the taskbar locked again, I know this will then stay and I won't accidentally change the number of rows in the taskbar.
