How to Find Truly Hidden Toolbars

How to Find Truly Hidden Toolbars
I have created various toolbars and set them to auto-hide. Sometimes I misplace one of them on my 4 screens (which have a total of 16 edges).

So sometimes I cannot find an auto-hidden toolbar, particularly when I have set up a tag on it.

How do I find auto-hidden toolbars that I cannot . . . find?

RE: How to Find Truly Hidden Toolbars
Still wondering how to find hidden toolbars. So I can remove them. Maybe they are listed in the windows registry?

RE: How to Find Truly Hidden Toolbars
All toolbars for Standalone TLB are listed in this file:
%appdata%\Tordex\True Launch Bar\standalone.xml

Exit Standalone TLB before editing this file (right-click the empty space of toolbar and select "Exit")

Use editor that can reformat XML to make it easy to edit. I recommend Notepad++ with XML Tools plugin.

Every toolbar is defined in <toolbar> tag. So if you delete it, the toolbar will be deleted.

RE: How to Find Truly Hidden Toolbars
What does it mean if a toolbar in the XML file has multiple locations? For example:

<toolbar id="81" left="-1564" right="-879" top="-421" bottom="-18" viewMode="1" dockState="3" autohide="1" taskbarmode="0" AlwaysOnTop="1" ForceToEdge="0" showOnClick="0" hotSpot="0" hotSpotMarginNear="0" hotSpotMarginFar="0" hideDelay="0" showDelay="2000" hideStyle="524288" showStyle="524288" showTime="0" hideTime="0" themeType="2" onFullScreen="0" locked="0" fullRow="0" alpha="255" showHotkey="0" monitorDevice="\\.\DISPLAY4" skin=""><tag img_path=""/><guid>{FC712CA0-A945-11D4-A594-956F6349FC18}</guid><data>C:\toolbars\New Programs\</data>
<side side="1" monitor="\\.\DISPLAY2" left="1221" right="1768" top="-1140" bottom="-607"/>
<side side="4" monitor="\\.\DISPLAY2" left="1591" right="2276" top="-682" bottom="-269"/>
<side side="3" monitor="\\.\DISPLAY4" left="-1564" right="-879" top="-421" bottom="-18"/></toolbar>

RE: How to Find Truly Hidden Toolbars
just want to add another way to:

How to "Exit" the Standalone Toolbar if the Toolbar is hidden and then edit the XML File?

Kill/End the Standalone Truelaunchbar Process in the Task Manager!

If this happens again? Set a Hotkey to every Toolbar. So if you lose the Toolbar you can bring her with the Hotkey back!

You can add Hotkeys in the Properties Dialog and in the XML File -> ex. showHotkey="561" (CTRL-1).
