Hi,

how can I move the icon-bar?
I'm using 1920x1080 in winuae emulation and the icon-bar now is located aligned at the left side of the screen but vertically at it's original position.
I don't find any options to drag it or to move it back to the bottom of the screen.

Thanks for help.

  This is Aros68k (ApolloOS)

With icon-bar I mean the Aros Start-Menu with it's Icons, normally at the bottom of the screen.

That is a built-in Menu in Dopus5, to move and save follow these steps:
 
  Menu "Buton"
  - Edit
  - Selection menu Icons
  - Full Border
  - Move the bar where you want it
  - Save Layout

  Thanks, I've been able to move the button bar to the bottom of the screen now, great!
  But this applies not to the Aros start-menu button, I'm not able to edit this button with the button-bar-editor.
  How can I move the Aros start-menu button to the bottom of the screen?

If you are referring to the Tab normally called "Start", here it is less intuitive, this is a reason why I don't use Dopus5 in my AROS One 68k:
 
  https://ae.amigalife.org/index.php?topic=696.msg6996#new
   
      To move the Start tab you have to do this:
     
      - Press CTRL + Click Mouse on Start Tab
      - Move the bar where you want it
      - Save Layout
      - If you prefer disable Border with CTRL + Click Mouse + Save

perfect!
Thank you very much :)

I'm glad my advice was helpful

On AROS 68k you can also use BoingIconBar and above all the new version of WBDock2 very nice with its transparencies.

You can see in the attached video the transparencies of WBDock2 and some themes that I created for AROS 68k also compatible with AROS x86 ;)

Made a little video showing how nice and comfortable WBDock2 is on AROS 68k ;)

  Looks cool (I guess) but for me personally that is way too Mac-ish looking. :)  But hey if that floats your boat, go for it :)

If you refer to WBDock2, you can choose 4 Styles, 3 are in Amiga Styles (see attached screenshot).
 
  If instead you refer to the Window Skin, here too there are many themes (see attached screnhot).
 
  I enclose a screenshot of AROS One 68k with an Amiga OS4 style theme
