Hi Tony,

Here are a couple of possible solutions for you, there's probably more 
but I can't think of any more right now.

First suggestion: If your panel (launcher bar) hasn't got too many 
launchers on it, you could try the taskbar plugin for the panel. If you 
do have several launchers, you could (perhaps) combine them thereby 
making more room for the plugin.

Second suggestion: With the advent of Xfce 4.2.x, the ability to have 
the panel "float" on the desktop some distance from the screen edge was 
lost. Now you can _only_ place it right on the [top|bottom|left|right] 
edge of the screen - you could try placing your's on the left or right 

HTH, Myles
