    does not address the shrunken toll and task bars

  • fpwyanks3 Jan 22, 2009

    I haven't heard a respnse from anyone that addresses the shrunken toll and task bars along with the text. I appreciate everyones efforts. It's maddening. I have asked friends who say they know computers to no avail. I'm thinking about just wiping out windows and starting over.

You will need to go into personalize your settings rather than try and undo the shortcuts. Tool and task bars can usually be moved by clicking and scrolling to where you want it. As fo rthe screen that will be a resolution problem I am guessing. Give it a go.

Sidebar has suddenly moved to side affecting size of screen. How do I return it to bottom???


You are probably talking about the windows Task bar that normally resides at the bottom of the screen:
.
Two ways of moving this task ba, to top/bottom/letft/right position of the display:
  1. Move the cursor on a blank/inactive area on the task bar, usually in the largest blank area towards the right, click and hold the right mouse button and drag the Task bar to the bottom of the screen.
  2. Go to the Task Bar 'Properties' (You can get this context menu by clicking the left mouse button after putting the cursor on a blank/inactive area on the task bar) and change the 'Task bar location on screen' option.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

THE TASK BAR APPEARS AT THE TOP OF THE WINDOW


First, make sure the taskbar is not locked. Right click the taskbar and make sure the is no check mark beside 'Lock the taskbar".

Now, point your cursor just beside the START button (outside the START orb and on the task bar), click and hold and now you can move it to the bottom of the window.

Can't see language bar


First try this: Right click your mouse while aiming it at the lower right of the task bar, but not inside the notification window (where the icons appear in the right of your task bar). You should see a menu titled Toolbars. Click on this and put a check mark next to the Language Bar heading. The language bar should pop up instantly next to the notification area.

If that doesn't work, do the following:
Open the Start menu, and go to control panel. If you haven't already selected it, choose use classis menu, then choose regional and language options and click on this to open.
You should now see a window that is titles REgional and Language options, and has a box at the top with Text services and input languages. Click on the Details button. This will open another window on your desktop, titled "Text Services and Input Languages" At the bottom of this window is a button titled "Language Bar". Click on this button to open the Language Bar Settings, and select your preference. It's possible you may have to reboot your system to get the language bar to update. If so, just trigger a restart when you go to shut down. The language bar will appear at the lower right of your task bar

Tool, taskbars and text all shrunk to half normal size


Did you try Control Panel and Display, Setting tab and adjusting the resolution by moving the slider? That should take care of it.
