How to move icons on KDE Taskbar ? <SOLVED!>

The Taskbar in KDE plasma is the panel (viewport) containing the K icon and application program icons to quickly start any KDE program by clicking on the icon. I can easily move the small (half-height) icons to the left or to the right by clicking the L mouse button when the mouse cursor is over a small icon and then sliding the mouse left or right while holding down the L mouse button.

But the large (full height of taskbar) icons like the K icon don't operate the same way. Does anybody know how to slide them left or right on the taskbar?

Right click an empty spot on your desktop
Choose: Unlock widgets
Now an icon appears at the far right side of the panel looking like a hamburger (3 lines above each other)
Click it and a bar appears above the panel.
Now when you hover over an icon in the panel, you can click and hold it to drag it to another place.

When done, click the button on the far right side in the bar (little square with a cross) to close the bar.
Right-click the desktop and choose Lock widgets.
