Show us your taskbar/dock/shelf/etc

When I used windoze at home I was always moving the taskbar around, making it float, downloading docks etc. Now I've gone Chrome I rarely do that. Sometimes have it set to autohide, sometimes not. It currently looks like this - are you going to show me yours?

Can't be arsed to do a screenshot, but mine has (left to right) - windows explorer, task manager, Excel, snipping tool, Word...then a big stretch of blank space until the systray on the right hand side. Too many shortcuts annoy me as it is too easy to click on the wrong one.

Due to them dropping the flexibility that Windows 98 had, I now have a very minimal auto-hide generic Windows 10 one on the far right of my right-hand screen.

Another dull contribution :D That's a little Chinese translation aid to the right of Word and on the further right you can see the language switcher as I have to use both fairly often. Notepad ++ too which is a great bit of free software and handles big files.
ETA I still have the system set to UK time, not sure why I never bothered to change it.

Clearly a slow work day, not got hardly anything open today as mainly documenting upgrading a dev environment ready for the production (Snip tool was already open fwiw)

Bit of a tweak due to Chromebook needing a Powerwash earlier because it wasn't behaving itself
