Toolbar has moved.

Veteran
The one with the clock and the start button. It used to be at the bottom of the screen and is now at the top. Don't know what I did but it's there now and wrong.

I've forgotten what I'm using but it's microsoft and whatever was current before Vista was launched.

It doesn't seem to want to drag and right click doesn;t seem to give an option to shift it.

Any ideas please?

Right click on a blank bit of the toolbar and select "Properties". There should then be a drop down list to select where you want the toolbar.

Right click should give you an option to lock the taskbar in that position. If it says it is locked, toggle it back to unlocked and then you should be able to drag it back to the bottom of the screen. If it says it isn't locked, then lock it and unlock it again, then you should be able to drag it.

Just wait till you get a call from the FIL to say he's flipped the screen 90 degrees (on a laptop) and cant fix it..... i.e. the mouse works very strangely...... been there....what a bugger to fix.

Ha, I discovered that one on my laptop yesterday! I was reading some documents on a train journey when I discovered that using the right alt key with the cursor keys flipped my windows round. It was actually very handy because the text was a bit small viewed in landscape mode, but once I'd flipped the window, I could read them in portrait mode by rotating the laptop through 90 degrees. I can certainly see why an iPad would be good for that kind of thing.

Nope that doesn't work here, the "Alt Gr" and the arrow keys do though.
I'm going to visit the daughter 'n grandson in a couple of weeks. Methinks I should maybe leave the screen "upside down!" while away. (snigger snigger)

If you use your mouse to grab the edge of the bar you can pull it back down to one row.
