My taskbar does not appear when I am viewing web pages

Hi,

When I view web pages my task bar at the foot of the screen does not appear unless I minimise the web pages. I want my task bar at the foot of the screen to appear at all times.

Please could someone kindly advise me how I should correct this.

Many thanks

    Hello,



    Thank you for pointing me in the right direction to the control panel. The actual setting that I needed to check was the 'Keep the task bar on top of other windows' option.



    Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.



    What happens if I check the box that states 'lock task bar? does this mean the the task bar will not move?

It sounds like you have your task bar set to auto hide. I'm not too familiar with this brand of laptop but if you are using windows you should be able to follow these instructions to fix this. If you know how to get to the control panel (start menu) and click on appearance and themes there should be a task bar and start menu icon there. Click on that icon and select how you want your task bar to be displayed.

    Windows XP is very flexible. You can size, color, and position
    anything to your liking. But you can only move and size things on the task bar
    when the task bar is unlocked. If you lock the task bar it
    hides all sizing handles on the task bar so you can't accidentally move or
    resize it.

Lenovo b640 model the tool bar is showing on the top but as is drag it on the bottom it is hide or not showing but it is showing on the right and left of the windows 7


Hi
Try right clicking on a part of the task bar and checking that the "Lock Task Bar" is not ticked in the menu that appears, untick it if it is. It shouldn't be as you can drag it to the left or right of the screen. Then click "Properties" and check that the "auto-hide task bar" is not ticked. Again it shouldn't be but untick if it is.
In these circumstances you should be able to drag the task bar to all four sides of the screen and it should remain visible at all times. If it is still not showing at the bottom of your screen, I would suspect that your graphics card is setup to show a larger screen than the actual screen can display, and you need to right click somewhere on the desk top and look at "Screen Resolution" (win7) to see what the settings are and what you can change them to to try and bring the task bar back into view when it is on the bottom.
Do any of your programmes lose their lower parts when viewed full screen?
On today's wide screen profile machines, I often find it better to have the task bar on the side. It takes a little getting used to at first, but after a while I found it more natural than at the bottom.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

How to enlarge the icons on the toolbar


If you mean enlarging the task bar items please follow the following steps:

1-Access the Taskbar and Start Menu. This particular menu will allow you to customize your taskbar features and resize the icons. Click on the Start menu, or Windows logo, from within your taskbar.

2-Select "Control Panel," then select "Appearance and Personalization." On some Windows 7 computers, this option may also read as "Appearance."

3-Click on "Taskbar and Start Menu." This will open a Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog box on your screen.

4-Change the size of the taskbar icons. Place a checkmark next to "Use small icons" within the Taskbar Appearance section to make your taskbar icons appear smaller.

5-Click directly on the checkmark if one is already present to enlarge the size of your taskbar icons.

6-Save your taskbar icon customization settings. Your new taskbar settings will go into effect immediately. Click on the "Apply" button to save your changes, then click "OK" to exit from the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties menu.

Hi All, I have a Compaq nx9110 notebook, can't set the resolution higher than 1024x768. Specifications I've found on various web pages say the resolution can be increased up to 1280 but I've...


hi

1.Minimize all applications so thatyou have a clear view of your desktop. 2.Right-click an open area of thedesktop - make sure you don't right-click an icon such as My Computer bymistake. 3.From the small menu that appears,click (left mouse button) on "Properties." 4. A "Display Properties"window will appear; click the "Settings" tab to bring it to thefront. 5.In the lower right portion of thattab, find the section titled "Screen Area" with a slide bar goingfrom left to right, or from "less" to "more." 6.With your mouse, slide the bar tothe right, towards the "more" side. As you slide the bar, youshould see the word under it go from 800 X 600 to a higher resolution, such as1024 X 768. 7.I recommend trying just one notch ata time. Click "Apply" to test your new settings. Aninformational message will appear, saying that you will have 15 seconds to testyour new settings before they take effect. 8.Click "OK" to test the newsettings. The screen will change to allow you to view it, and if you wantto keep those settings, click "Yes" within 15 seconds. To keepyour old settings, click "No" or wait 15 seconds. 9.Repeat steps 6-8 until you have asetting that you are satisfied with. When you are done, click "OK" tomake the Display Properties box disappear.
Tips:
1. Some video cards and/or monitors support fewer colors as the screen resolution increases. It is up to you to decide which is more important. The number of colors is to the left of the "Screen Area" section on the same tab. 2. Once you have your resolution set higher, try maximizing the window for various programs. You may be surprised how much of a spreadsheet or webpage you can view on your screen!
