    OH was on our PC laptop earlier and the taskbar has moved from the bottom of the screen to the right hand side and I can not for the life of me work out how to move it back!! The thing I'd normally do (click and drag) isn't working.

    Any ideas how to get it back as it is driving me nuts!!!

    Are you sure that you don't get a little double ended arrow if you click right on the edge of it? (That would allow you to make it wider if you wanted to?) I'm sure I've done that before my accident and by dragging it wider and downwards it ended up back where it should have been :lol: x

    Right click and untick 'lock the taskbar' if it's ticked then you can move it! x

    Nope hun, thats what would normally happen isn't it but there is only the option to make it as wide as half the page but then nothing to pull it down to the bottom of the screen :(

    I think if it's unlocked, try dragging it as if you were trying to make it wider, but while you're moving it move the pointer down to the bottom of the screen and it'll drop it off there instead of changing the size. Does that make sense?

    You can move the taskbar to any edge of your screen. Make sure it is unlocked before you move it.

    Right-click an empty space on the taskbar. If Lock the Taskbar has a check mark next to it, the taskbar is locked. Unlock it by clicking Lock the Taskbar, which removes the check mark.

    Click an empty space on the taskbar, and then hold down the mouse button as you drag the taskbar to the top, bottom, or side of the desktop. When the taskbar is where you want it, release the mouse button.

    Is it still there? You don't drag it with the arrows as you would to make it wider - you just click in an empty space in the middle of it and drag it to where you want it x

    Kailyn did this once while on my lap at the computer, this is what you do if it happens again, press Ctrl + Alt and then an arrow key either right or left until it's back, I had no idea what to do either and had DH go on his computer and look it up so it would be fixed!
