    It'll change (more on msfn) according to current positioning - hkcu\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\streams\desktop

    Use a program that takes a snapshot of the registry, change stuff, take 2nd snapshot and compare. This will show you where activity is.

    I use InstallRite to do mine, but there are many available.

    Not to worry, those settings are typically unavailable. "Drag n'drop" as you wish and let Taskbar Plus handle the rest.
    Should you encounter problems maintaining the order across boots - see the previous link or refer to this post.

    Excellent resource GlobalForce, thanks for the mention. Learned a ton of ins and outs from that board myself.

    Then they're guilty of offering the user too many options, ay? Shame on'em!
    *This I haven't had time to determine - "Where does taskbar plus save the quicklaunch?"
