Menu bar moves up off screen

When I am online, the menu bar is off the screen. I can get it down by moving cursor to the very top of the screen. When I move the cursor, the menu bar goes back up out of sight. How do I get it back down permanently?

In Internet Explorer click Tools, your Full Screen entry probably has a checkmark next to it, click it to remove it and your menu bar will not autohide.

The page scrolls up and down - somtimes even jumps up and down - when the cursor is nowhere near the right hand of the screen where the vertical scroll bar is.


It is possible you might have picked up a virus, or a bad device driver. Try a system restore taking the computer back in time before this happened, may resolve the issue.

Tool bar moved t right and is large


Right click on the task bar (I assume you mean the bar that is typically at the bottom of your desktop?)
Make sure "Lock the Task bar" is not checked
Click on the border of the task bar
drag directly from where you clicked to the bottom
Adjust height accordingly

Remove the drop down icon bar on sony vaio


Usually, with a dropdown toolbar, you can put the cursor all the way to the top of the screen and with the toolbar visible, right click on it to activate a control menu from which you can stop it from dropping down, unlock it and move it to either sidr, or even turn it off altogether.

If this doesn't work, try entering yout laptop model name in Google search followed by "disable dropdown toolbar" for blogs and forums for your laptop model that may have a specific command or trick for your machine.

Good Luck

How do i get my start button on the left corner of my screen? it is at the top right now.


The Start Button is on one end of the "Taskbar"

Use your mouse to move the cursor anywhere on the task bar, click-and-hold, and drag the taskbar back down to the bottom of the screen.

If it won't move (you try to drag it but it's not going anywhere) then right-click on the task bar and un-check the menu item "Lock the Taskbar" then try again.

If this helps, hit the "thumbs-up" for me.
If not, use "add comment" to ask any questions you might have, then check back for answer from me or another FixYa expert!

Asus notebook K501J Model. A blue wall at bottom of screen, about two inches high screen' .I cannot remove same. Also I cannot get the task at bottom of screen,


Try this:
Place your cursor at the top of the wide blue band. See if the cursor arrow changes to a 2-sided arrow. If if does, hold down the left button and move the cursor down until the screen is again normal.
Basically what you have done is to take part of the window and increase the size of the bar. This actually should be the taskbar, but it's way too large.

The start menu and task bar appear to be off the screen on my desktop and auto die mode is not on:(


Check to see if AUTO HIDE is not enabled in taskbar settings, move your mouse cursor to the bottom of the screen if enabled the Startmenu and taskbar will re-appear, if not then it was possibly resized accidently, move your cursor to the bottom again if it turns into two arrows pointing up and down then click and hold and drag up and it should be revealed again.
